New Tiny Pico-ITX Form Factor Is (Almost) Here


Get ready for a tiny, tiny motherboard. If you’re looking to build, say, a system that fits in a box of Pop Tarts, the Pico-ITX form factor is right up your alley.

Although it was announced way back in 2004, it’s just now becoming available in small quantities and should be plentiful very soon.

It’s 3.9-inches by 2.8-inches and contains an embedded VIA C7 processor running at 1.0GHZ, support for up to a gigabyte of RAM, a SATA hard drive connection, four USB slots, and integrated support for MPEG-2/4 and WMV9 video.
