FUD Zilla snapped a photo of the VIA Mobile ITX motherboard. This mobile chipset is really very small, on the photo below you can see that it's even smaller than a business card.
The motherboard is powerful enough to run Windows XP and Windows Vista Home Basic and should be available soon, VIA is still looking for interested customers.
The large chip on the picture is actually the chipset which is the CX700S, which should be similar to the CX700, but we didn't get any details on this specific model.
The CPU is the smaller chip that's hiding behind the chipset and it's a VIA C7-S and again, this is a new product. Even the guy at VIA that showed us the board didn't know much about it. Judging from the print on the CPU itself it's a 1GHz CPU with a 400MHz FSB, but time will tell.
The board has several memory chips soldered onto it and it has two mini USB connectors, some kind of an audio connector and connectors for what we guess are for a display and a power source as well as some kind of antenna.

Can anyone identify the Enpirion chip? Which model is it? Can anyone read the numbers on it? It's the square black chip on the left edge.

http://techreport.com/onearticle.x/12623 the photos on The Tech Report are a bit bigger but it's still not easy to read.
I think the numbers are:
The characters are a bit blurry so it could be that some of the numbers I gave were wrong..
