VIA Mini ITX 2.0 platform runs Crysis

Posted on Thursday, June 05 2008 @ 18:19:21 CEST by


TweakTown has some coverage of the VIA Mini-ITX 2.0 launch event.
After some explanation of the Nano Processor, NVIDIA's Drew Henry takes the stage for an explanation of why they are teaming up with VIA. They say they are helping to develop the PCI-Express architecture on the board because for them it would mean they can market their card for use on the Mini-ITX systems from VIA.

To demonstrate the awesome power of the new Nano chipset and NVIDIA partnership we are treated to a loop of 1080p Blu-ray movie clip from the new James Bond movie, needless to say it plays flawlessly. Then some action in Bioshock and finally Crysis. This won’t be a gaming beast by any stretch but you can't help notice that the games actually play at a reasonable FPS.


Here's a video of a 1.8GHz VIA Nano CPU + GeForce 8600 GT Silent Edition running Crysis. Looks like this CPU delivers some pretty good performance, it won't challenge high-end gaming PCs but if you drop in a decent video card you may get some good gaming performance out of a very tiny computer system.
