Asus ITX-220 Driver

To date, I've used only the motherboards that are sold by Intel with their Atom and Celeron processors. While their performance is not that of even a mildly exciting computer system, both products will get the job done for a lot of computing needs outside of gaming and video production. Asus ITX-220 this review, I'm branching out a bit and using a motherboard built around Intel's Celeron processor, clocked at 1.

This Celeron processor is kind of an odd duck. It doesn't exist as a conventional CPU that would plug into some sort of processor socket. Instead, it only shows up in a form suitable for soldering to Asus ITX-220 motherboard. It's also clocked much more slowly than other more conventional Celeron CPUs that you can buy separately. It doesn't really compete with Intel's Atom CPU on a power usage scale, and it doesn't have a lot of high performance features such as multiple cores either.

All it really has to offer is somewhat Asus ITX-220 performance than the Atom CPU does, and that's a little bit debatable with regard Asus ITX-220 the latest dual core Atom CPUs. I'm very strongly of the opinion that the Celeron CPU is insufficiently appreciated. Everywhere I go I hear people talking the Celeron processor down.

The simple fact of the matter is that the Celeron is very good--if not absolutely brilliant--value for the money.

You can build a very competent computer on a thin budget with one, and it's very likely that you won't know it's a Celeron unless you look for it. All of these people would do well to participate in a blind trial where they do not know and cannot find out that one system is a Celeron and the other something more high end. I am confident that they would end up surprised. Intel Asus ITX-220 really even seem Asus ITX-220 care that much about their Celeron They've only ever produced one motherboard using it, and that board is no longer available today.

Most other motherboard makers have ignored it. However, Asus continues to produce a motherboard utilizing the Celeron processor. This is their ITX motherboard. In a nutshell, their combination of Asus ITX-220 Celeron Asus ITX-220 an Intel GC Express chipset on the ITX product is to use the Queen's English a bloody brilliant combination that is outstanding value for the money.


That is why it is unfortunate that the mainstream reviewer websites have Asus ITX-220 ignored this excellent little motherboard. Which brings me to this.

Asus ITX Review

They're a lot less fiddly than depending upon USB to do the same thing in my experience. Asus didn't Asus ITX-220 a parallel port on this board, but they did include a good old serial port. In fact, there isn't even a header to which an optional external parallel port could be added later. So if you need a parallel port, you'll Asus ITX-220 to skip this board or use either a USB to parallel adapter or put a parallel port adapter card in the lone PCI slot.


You get Intel's GMA integrated graphics from the built in chipset. There is Asus ITX-220 PCI Express slot with which to add a graphics adapter of your own, should you decide that the onboard video is not sufficient for your needs.

For the price and form factor, you really can't expect their to be Asus ITX-220 a thing. Also missing from the board is a PATA channel. This isn't a huge loss, but when you have only two Asus ITX-220 ports, the lack of a PATA channel means that you can only have one hard disk if you want an optical drive A SATA port multiplier might not even be supported by this board.

Still lacking from this board is RAID support, which, again, isn't a huge loss but it is a limitation nevertheless Asus ITX-220 you want to use this board as the basis for an energy efficient low Asus ITX-220 server of some type. Fortunately, many operating systems today will let you create a "RAID" configuration completely in software with minimal performance loss.

Are you a human?

Where it fell down badly was on anything that involved any kind of heavy lifting from the integrated graphics hardware. An Intel GMA graphics system is really only a lower-midrange graphics solution these days, Asus ITX-220 by comparision to the SiS Mirage 1, the GMA is a screamingly fast graphics solution. Where I could easily drive the Intel board into running out of steam and showing obvious signs of it, the ITX would not succumb Asus ITX-220 resource Asus ITX-220 in any test I ran.

The Asus board can also run in dual-channel mode as it has two memory sockets. This could greatly speed up memory intensive tasks and anything that has to do with the onboard graphics hardware Asus ITX-220 see a speed boost as well. With Intel's products, you get only a single memory module socket and are confined to Asus ITX-220 channel mode only.


In reality, the SiS northbridge will overheat in free air after some time, and a crash will be Asus ITX-220 result. If you have a passively cooled processor on your DGLY2 board, Intel says you must have x amount of air flowing over it. At least the chipset overheating is due to Intel's skimping on the heatsink. I put a slightly larger one on the SiS northbridge and it stopped the crashes immediately.
