VIA EPIA-P720 Pico-ITX delivers fanless HD video playback

Posted on Tuesday, September 15 2009 @ 17:16:57 CEST by


VIA introduced the EPIA-P720 Pico-ITX, a new fanless motherboard that measures just 100mm x 72mm. It features the VIA Eden ULV 1GHz processor, VIA VX855 chipset and supports up to 2GB of DDR2 memory. The VIA EPIA-P720 is capable of playing HD video and has support for HDMI.
Measuring a mere 10cm x 7.2cm, the VIA EPIA-P720 is based on the VIA-developed, ultra compact Pico-ITX form factor. Powered by a low power, fanless 1GHz VIA Eden ULV processor, the VIA EPIA-P720 supports up to 2GB of DDR2 system memory and is the first Pico-ITX board to feature the VIA VX855 Media System Processor.

A highly integrated, all-in-one chipset, the VIA VX855 MSP is specially designed to provide flawless hardware acceleration for the latest HD video codecs including H.264, WMV, VC1 and MPEG 2/4 at high bitrates and display resolutions of up to 1080p. The VIA Chrome9™ HCM 3D integrated graphics core boasts full DirectX 9.0 support and a 128-bit 2D engine with hardware rotation capability.

The VIA EPIA-P720 uses a specially designed I/O add-on-board, the VIA P720-A, which complements the native HDMI port to add a VGA port, a Gigabit LAN port and two USB 2.0 ports. The VIA Vinyl HD audio codec provides 6 channel, DTS capable audio with S/PDIF support. Storage is provided in the shape of an onboard 44-pin IDE connector and one S-ATA port.

On board pin headers provide support for an additional 4 x USB 2.0 ports, an LPC connector, SMBus connector, PS/2 support, audio jacks, LVDS, 4 pairs of DIO and two UART ports.
