VIA and NVIDIA Begin Beautiful Friendship
Posted by newsbot on June 06th 2008



Believe it or not, this simple PCIe slot is that poster child of avast area of contention between VIA's and Intel's take on the mini-ITXdesigns. Intel is trying desperately to control how their Atom-basedplatforms are produced, what features they have and what price they sellfor in an attempt to control their overall product line and keep Atom fromcannibalizing the Celeron parts. That means no PCIe slots, limited DIMMsupport and almost no retail availability for Intel's Atom.VIA is obviously taking the other approach, opening up their mini-ITX 2.0solutions to any and all takers as they simply wanted to see their CPU andplatforms adopted by as many users and customers as possible.
