Intel almost release Mini-ITX board
September 14, 2004

Intel are trialling "Shelton" in the Asian market - a new low-power processor (and competitor to AMD's Sempron), based on the P6/Pentium M "Banias" architecture. Shelton seems to boast a 130nm fabrication process and no Level 2 cache but looks to be 40% faster than at least one flavour of C3 at 1GHz.

A supporting motherboard - the D845GVSH - is available in a "Micro-ITX" form-factor. Judging by the screw holes it is about 170 x 190mm, making it fractionally larger than Mini-ITX [slaps forehead]...

Specifications (we think): Passively cooled 1Ghz Intel Shelton CPU, i845GV Chipset with on-board Intel Extreme Graphics, Realtek ALC202A 20 bit AC97 Audio and ICH4 I/O Controller, 400Mhz System Bus and 266Mhz Memory Bus. On board connectors: PCI Slot, 1 x DDR 266 DIMM slot, 1 x ATA 100 IDE connector, 1 x Floppy. Back panel connectors: VGA, Keyboard & Mouse Ports, USB 2.0, 10/100 LAN, Audio In/Out sockets.
