COMPUTEX TAIPEI 2008 Intel had many people gathered around the Atom area of its booth with obviously much interest in something very small.

Our attention was focused on a small wall of Mini-ITX Atom based motherboards from Intel, Foxconn, Gigabyte and J&W.

Before we show you the pictures of these boards, take a moment to get an understanding at just how small the Atom CPU chip is from the small picture we created below.

People have been mixing up the Northbridge and Atom CPU but probably for good reason.

Now we get a close-up look at the boards displayed on the wall.

These boards will be placed inside systems such as the ASUS Eee Box and MSI Wind Desktop as well as another unit that we are about to write about from ECS. Stay tuned!
