If anyone wants to buy this for it's low power consumption don't bother! I've done some testing and found that at idle the board uses 45 watts, compared to 55 watts for my dual core AMD X2 3000 processor.This is because the motherboard chipset uses around 25 watts!Chris
Funny you should mention it, I was just reading that article myself, looks like it not only performs better, but uses less power too: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/Atom-Athlon-Efficient,1997.html
Hi AndrewAny update on your energy testing?Have you managed to test an Eee box as a media director yet?TIA
I'm also very interested in using the eee box as a MD. But are you using the b202 or the b204/206. I'm also interested to know if you are talking about SD or >720p content. I think a eeebox mounted to the vesa mounts would make a perfect MD. But what about IR receiver for the remote and rs-232 for TV control?
