DailyTech writes VIA has launched a new EPIA LT-series motherboard:
The new EPIA LT-series arrives in 1.5 GHz and 1.0 GHz models; the EPIA LT15000AG and LT10000EAG. New to the EPIA LT-series is the ability to power dual displays using the native LVDS interface. Backing the LVDS interface is the usual VIA UniChrome Pro II AGP integrated graphics core found in the VIA CX700 chipset.

The integrated VIA UniChrome Pro II AGP also has hardware MPEG-2 video decoding capabilities. VIA also equips the EPIA LT-series with a VGA output. Users seeking TV-out functionality can opt for a special order version of the EPIA LT-series based on the VIA CX700M2 chipset. However, the TV-out equipped EPIA LT-series are for project-based customers only.

VIA equips the EPIA LT-series with dual VT6107 10/100 Ethernet as well. Customers seeking increased data throughput can opt for the optional VIA VT6122 Gigabit Ethernet controller in place of one of the 10/100 controllers. Other notable features of the EPIA LT-series include two SATA, one IDE, integrated VIA VT1708A high definition audio, one PCI slot, one DDR2-533 DIMM slot and up to four serial ports.
