Intel Atom-based D945GCLF motherboard now available

Posted on Tuesday, May 20 2008 @ 02:37:52 CEST by


A British webstore is listing an Atom-based motherboard for 52.90GBP (excl. VAT), with the current currency exchange rate that's around $100. The site says shipments will go out in the first week of June.

The Intel D945GCLF mini-ITX motherboard measures 17cm x 17cm and features the Intel Atom 230 1.60GHz processor which has a TDP of only 4W. Graphics are provided by the Intel GMA 950 IGP chip, it has Realtek HD audio and there's support for one DDR2 533/667MHz memory module. Other features include one PCI slot, 2x USB, 2x SATA, 1x IDE, 2x PS/2, 1x Parallel, 1x VGA, 1x RS232, 1x LAN 10/100Mbit, line-out, line-in and microphone.
This very low power CPU (TDP = 4W), with multiple thread support, is exceptionally efficient. Capable of powering Vista Home Media Center, for example, with ease. The Atom 230 CPU used on this board is a 1.6GHz model, with 512K of L2 cache, based on Intel’s latest 45nM process. The supporting chipset, the Intel 945GC + ICH7 provides desktop connectivity and performance. Intel high definition audio, 10/100 LAN, PCI, SATA2 (3GB/s) DDR2 533/667 are all there, to ensure connectivity, expandability and performance. Build you new mini-itx project, or upgrade your mini-itx project today, and get a huge performance boost (typically 3-4x benchmark improvement, when compared to a VIA C7 1.5GHz / CN700 system).




The Atom processor on this motherboard is passively cooled by the way, the chip is located under the tiny aluminum heatsink. The Northbridge on the other hand requires a HSF that looks rather big on such a tiny motherboard.
