Introduction to MightyBoard

January, 2005


Why mightyboard l.jpg

Why MightyBoard

  • Via market penetration with EPIA boards

    • Mini-ITX form factor

    • Via processors and chipsets

    • Extremely cost competitive (~$100 at low end)

  • Broad base of PCI I/O expansion cards

    • Many more offerings than PC/104-Plus

    • Frequently very cost effective

  • Availability of ATX-style enclosures

    • Desktop, rack mount available

  • Lippert and others also offering Mini-ITX

    • Pentium M

How to join the party without going head on head against VIA?
