It seems that lately the Small Form Factor motherboard market has taken a few impressive strides. With Shuttle's show-stealing display of power through their new SN41G2 nForce2 XPC solution, it's hard to believe anyone else would dare to compete!
Today, we have word of a new SFF motherboard from Via. Can it compare? Will it be your next upgrade? Or, is it just another wannabe. Head on over to Envy News for their exclusive review.
VIA have been on the forefront of HTPC design and recently the EPIA V series was released. Using the Mini-ITX form factor, the EPIA V9000 is the cost effective brother of the M9000, released last September. The Mini-ITX factor is quoted as being the worlds smallest to date, measuring in at a miniscule 17cm squared (Seen next to an Asus K7M Motherboard below). The tiny boards haven't gone unnoticed by the modding croud either, there are some very crazy and wacky case mods out there for these motherboards!More information @ Envy News
