    Well it seems that in the article over on "Slash Gear" that it has the following specs:

    CPU modules based on the Mobile-ITX form factor integrate core CPU, chipset and memory functionality and I/O that includes the CRT, DVP and TTL display support, HD Audio, IDE, USB 2.0, as well as PCI Express, SMBus, GPIO, LPC, SDIO and PS2 signals, through customizable baseboards.

    I wonder how many lanes that PCI Express socket has and if you could get it to run Crysis, lol

    On a more serious note though, it'd make an admirably small and incredibly compact HTPC board or even some along the lines of a netbook :eek:)

    The whole barebones motherboard idea is appealing, wish they would apply the concept it to regular motherboards, pretty much just comes with the Chipset, PCI, SATA, USB, and Ethernet on board. Everything else would be enabled via drop-in card.

    I'd be more interested in VIA fitting their Nano to a micro ATX motherboard. A quiet media PC would be nice.
