VIA EPIA PX500EG Pico ITX doesn't need a fan

Posted on Wednesday, May 14 2008 @ 22:57:54 CEST by


VIA today unveiled a new power efficient motherboard. The VIA EPIA PX500EG is a Pico-ITX board with a 500MHz VIA Eden ULV processor that uses only 1W. The motherboard is really small, it measures just 10cm x 7.2cm (3.9" x 2.8"), and doesn't need active cooling because it generates little heat.
Building on the success of the VIA EPIA PX10000 Pico-ITX board, which took the embedded industry by storm last year as the world's smallest mass production x86 board ever, the VIA EPIA PX5000EG adds the incredible heat and power efficiency of the 500MHz VIA Eden ULV processor with its maximum power draw of just one watt. System designers of embedded automation and industrial control devices can now take advantage of a full x86 system that fits neatly into the most extreme space constrained, heat sensitive environments.

Developed exclusively by VIA, the Pico-ITX form factor squeezes a full feature set into a mere 10cm x 7.2cm. A complete system in the palm of your hand, the VIA EPIA PX5000EG includes both LVDS/DVI and VGA support, integrated 5.1 channel audio, fast 100/10 Ethernet, both IDE and S-ATA drive support and up to six USB ports and a COM port.

The VIA EPIA PX5000EG uses a fanless 500MHz VIA Eden ULV processor with a maximum power draw of only one watt and supports up to 1GB of DDR2 system memory. The VIA VX700 system media processor adds VIA UniChrome™ Pro II IGP 3D/2D graphics with MPEG-2/-4 and WMV9 hardware decoding acceleration and pin support for LVDS, DVI and VGA display configurations. The VIA EPIA PX5000EG has both onboard IDE and S-ATA connectors as well as an integrated 100/10 Fast Ethernet port. Connectors are included to support PS/2 keyboard and mouse, 1 multimedia connector to support external TV-out, a video capture port interface & LPC interface (add-on card required), 1 audio connector for line-out, line-in, mic-in, S/PDIF in & 5.1 channel audio output and 1 Pico-ITX power connector
