Albatron is working on a new AMD Socket AM2 based mini ITX motherboard, it will be presented next month at CeBIT.
No doubt that all eyes will be on a much anticipated AMD based Mini-ITX Mainboard (model name pending late Feb. release date) capable of supporting the latest AMD technology and a full range of AMD's latest Dual Core and 64-bit processors. This diminutive Mini-ITX mainboard is no bigger than your outstretched hand (17x17cm) but brims with power, versatility and capability. It boasts ferocious performance with HyperTransportTM technology supported by 2 GB of Dual Channel DDR II memory using two SO-DIMMs. It will boast one of the market's most powerfully integrated graphics engine. Also, SATA II with RAID and GBit LAN will allow users nonstop surfing and downloading. This board is also very well connected with 8 possible USB ports, IEEE1394 and even an HDMI connector.
Albatron will also showcase a new MXM module, a very small graphics card (73x78mm module) that can breathe new life into "gaming on-the-road" for laptops and very small form factor systems. The MXM7600Go-256MB attaches to an MXM connector on a mainboard that allows it to lay parallel to the board. It comes with 256 MB of high speed DDR2 memory and teams up with an NVIDIA GeForceTM 7600Go GPU for great graphics performance.

Albatron will also be showing off the latest version of its Mini-PC, the Nano Abox V2.0 with a nifty 155 x 87 mm screen. No bigger than a textbook, this small wonder is packed with multimedia capabilities boasting VIIV compatibility and including Integrated GFX, 8 Channel Audio, USB 2.0, IEEE1394 and GBit LAN. It supports powerful Core 2 Duo processors and can be equipped with 2 GB of DDRII memory using SO-DIMM connectors. Perfect for an inconspicuous living room multimedia center or mobile enough to take on the road.
