The fact the chipset supports a single PCIe x16 alone puts it ahead of the Atom for me. I wouldn't be surprised if we see Atom boards appearing with one in the not so distant future mind.

I'm very, very interested in this new VIA cpu. Can't wait to see some tests!

No you won't - Intel has locked the Atom CPU to the 945 chipset that has had it's PCI-Express specifically removed. If you want PCI-Express you should buy a Celeron.

I would have had the VIA Nano and Atom tested for today, but our VIA board was DOA

Currently none of them interest me, the Atom needs an aging NB/SB combo that restricts it to oversized pocket PCs and Eee style laptops. The way the platform is implemented currently it actually competes with Nano, and it strikes me more as a proof of concept.

Call me when Moorestown arrives and the MIDs really are small and pocketable rather than fat, heavy, bloated devices!

If I ever need a SUPER low power, SUPER compact PC (perhaps for in a car).. I'd probably consider these chips..

What does the "+" stand for behind the frequency of the U2400?

I assume it means that it's available at higher frequencies..

me too!

The jump in power consumption between the top two and the rest of the pack is huge! Still, I hope this is as good as it is supposed to be. How do the different speeds compare to "normal" chips?

It could be that they are using one of the Southbridge PCI-Express lanes to do that, if I remember correctly ICH7 has 6 PCI-Express x1 links in the chipset.(maybe it was 4, I can't remember).

OK, I meant to say the 945 chipset has been stripped of its x16 lanes, but the (butchered) ICH7 has a couple of x1s though iirc

What did they remove from the ICH7 for the Atom platform?

I can't remember specifically I'd have to spend time looking it up, but it's a mobile ICH7 to make it super-low power.
