Lol. This + that new PCI 8600GT... I knew there was a reason for PCI 8600GTs!

Interesting read on the Atom's power consumption here http://forums.untangle.com/showthread.php?t=3721

Quote:
For now, the 945 chipset actually draws more power than the CPU itself!
An average Atom setup would consume ~30W of power because of the Northbridge.

OTOH this Koolu thin client consumes as little as 11W, albeit running on a (slower) AMD Geode.

It looks useful as a basic web server or torrent box. I'd love to play with one of those if I had the extra money.

Because some people only use their PC for internet acccess music, and Office functions. THis would be a perfect solution. The EEPC is great for mobility, but nobody wants to type a paper on that....

Theres a TH article reviewing a board by gigabyte using the same CPU and they OC it up to 1.86Ghz from 1.6Ghz. I bet someone here could do better.
