ECS shows off Pineview, next gen Atom system
Computex 09: Has dual core CPU
Among a wealth of nettops and all-in-one systems at ECS's booth, two tiny little systems that currently goes under the name of MX100 were hiding. The interesting part about these little boxes isn't the design or the small size, but rather the fact that they're the first Pineview systems to be displayed.
The MX100 comes with a dual core Pineview processor which ECS listed as having a clock speed of 1.6GHz. The CPU is paired up with the Tigerpoint chipset, although ECS listed the graphics as GMA 950, but we're pretty sure this is just a mistake, as some other products at the ECS booth were also listed as having GMA 950 graphics, despite having other graphics solutions. Interestingly enough, ECS is listing the Tigerpoint chipset as support up to 4GB of DDR2 memory.
At the front of the MX100 is a memory card reader, two USB ports and a pair of audio jacks for a headset and mic. Around the back is a further two USB 2.0 ports, an Ethernet port, a D-sub and DVI connector as well as a pair of additional audio jacks. The MX100 will also have an option for 802.11a/b/g WiFi and it will come with a 2.5-inch hard drive.
