Galaxy to debut ATX motherboard with Intel Atom

The Tech Report writes Galaxy will be one of the first motherboard makers to solder a Intel Atom processor to a full-sized ATX motherboard:
When you think of Intel's Atom processor, you think of small-form-factor desktops and teeny laptops. That's how Intel is marketing the chip, and that's how most hardware manufacturers are using it. However, Chinese site Expreview has spotted an outlier: a full-sized ATX motherboard with an Atom processor soldered onto it.

A quick Google search suggests the company behind the board is none other than Galaxy Technology. Expreview's photos show a pretty unremarkable board layout with two memory slots, four Serial ATA ports, one PCI Express x16 slot, five PCI slots, and a lone VGA port on the I/O plate.

It's kinda funny to see the little Atom on such a big board.
