Biostar launches Celeron 847 motherboard

Written by Fudzilla staff



€67 worth of ITX fun


ITX motherboards have gone through a renaissance of sorts, as both Intel and AMD started to churn out cheap and cheerful Atom and Brazos parts.

However, if an Atom just doesn’t cut it for you, Biostar is offering a rather interesting board based on Intel’s new Celeron 847, a dual-core 1.1GHz part with 2MB of cache and a 17-watt TDP. The board feature’s Intel’s NM70 chipset, two DDR3 slots, one PCIe 2.0 slot, along with VGA and HDMI outputs. SATA 6Gbps support is also on board, but sadly there is no eSATA or USB 3.0.

The asking price is €67, not bad compared to Atom and Brazos boards that have dominated the market for the last couple of years. So, it is an interesting alternative, but we don’t know the exact performance just yet, although it should outpace any Atom board out there.
