Intel's latest roadmaps dated the 1st of September, describes Viiv as an entertainment PC, requiring platform driver software, a 10' GUI shell, NCQ S-ATA drives, and capable of supporting 5.1 audio codecs, 5.1 jacks or an SPDIF connector and 2.1 jacks. Intel wants system integrators to adopt the 945GT Express chipset and Yonah dual core chips for these babies.
