VIA's "Vogue" Mini-PC
June 20, 2006
VIA Technologies launched their "Vogue PC Reference Design" platform during the VTF 2006 opening keynote address at Computex this year. A Vogue PC can be modified using VIA's erm, "QuickSlip" technology - i.e. an internal enclosure containing all components that can easily be placed into different housings. During their brief catwalk appearance a sporty, classic and feminine look were on show, all designed by Taiwanese studio Cre8 Design.
Equally of interest were the specifications given, offering a glimpse into the future of C7 Mini-ITX boards: A Mini-ITX board with C7 processor, but with a *CN800* chipset and optional S3 Graphics Chrome20 Series DX9 accelerator. Bumps in chipset technology generally go hand in hand with graphics or audio improvements. The CN700 chipset (EPIA EN, EPIA CN) promises HDTV capabilities, the CX700M (EPIA EX) seems to add HD Audio on top of that. The CN750+VT8251 should add H.264 and WMV9 in hardware, so the CN800 presumably packs in the S3 graphics somehow. Unless it uses a separate graphics card. We're speculating a little here.
