Intel is poised to grab some market share in the mini ITX motherboard market with its new Little Valley D201GLY motherboard.
This new mini ITX motherboard from Intel features a chipset from SiS, looks like ATI chipsets aren't welcome anymore since they've been acquired by AMD.
The upcoming Intel D201GLY motherboard is an all-in-one solution with an integrated processor, similar to VIA’s EPIA series. It features the SiS662 north bridge paired with the SiS964L south bridge. The SiS662 features integrated SiS Mirage 1 graphics. The integrated graphics core is AGP8x-based and features hardware accelerated DVD decoding. It is not Vista Premium ready.
Intel integrates a Yonah-based Celeron processor on the D201GLY. The integrated processor is a Celeron 215 in a BGA 479 package. Intel clocks the Celeron 215 at 1.33 GHz on a 533 MHz front-side bus. It also has 512KB of L2 cache. Despite being Yonah-based, the Celeron 215 is a single-core processor.
Other notable features of the Intel D201GLY include DDR2-533/400 MHz memory support, one PCI slot, 10/100 Ethernet, six USB 2.0 ports and optional S-Video output.
The motherboard should be available within two weeks.
