Final Thoughts

The ASUS AT3IONT-I Deluxe with its "dual core" Atom 330, DDR3 support, MCP7A (ION) and provided power supply it a nice little package. I found it to be a very capable board while the extras (like the remote and Home Theater Gate software) added to the value of the entire package.

It is true that you are not getting a powerhouse here, but then again it is not aimed at the HPC (High Performance Computing) market, the enthusiast market (unless it is the enthusiast's HTPC market) or the gamer's market. It is meant to fill a space at the lower user area and also at the mid-range HTPC space. In these two areas it does remarkably well. We even see it performing better than the much newer Atom D510 despite having an end of life Atom 330 (just shows you that EOL does not always mean obsolete). Plus with the way ASUS has tuned this board, you can push it quite far even for daily use. We found that our 2GHz overclock was stable for 24/7 operation with minimal extra cooling.

I can seriously envision this sitting in a small case with good air flow and running happily in an office, kitchen or play room; providing media services without breaking a sweat. Considering the $189.99 price tag from there really is no reason not to pick the ASUS MiniMax Home Entertainment Center, complete with the AT3IONT-I Deluxe. I know that the one we have here will be finding a home in my office very soon.
