Conclusion: The M10000 is far from useless; it'll suit many people, definitely including
business users, just fine. The Nehemiah core and about a 1.5GHz clock speed
might even put it into real HTPC contention. But, as it stands, it does
Excerpt: Going against the grain, Via has been pushing their new EPIA series of motherboards out onto the market and are getting a tremendous response. The motherboard, as you will see further on in this review, is so small that with some ingenuity, it can be pretty well be inserted or incorporated into...
Excerpt: A few months back, we took a look at the EPIA M9000 which was a wonderfully small motherboard packed full of integrated components and an x86 compatible low power CPU in the form of the VIA C3 processor.
Conclusion: It's kind of obvious that VIA are aiming for a niche market here. A market where size matters, for there would be little other reason to adopt the Mini-ITX form factor. Let's not forget that the EPIA won't be sold on performance grounds, no matter how much VIA push their new Nehemiah C3 CPU.
Summary: At $162 on Pricewatch, the EPIA-M10000 isn't the cheapest option for a budget system. Those seeking a high-performance rig will be better off with a Duron/original nForce combo where AGP slots are common.
Conclusion: Das VIA EPIA M10000 ist ein sehr stabiles und zuverlässiges System. Bei der Arbeitsspeicherwahl erwies es sich als anspruchslos und lief sogar mit OEM-Speicher, welcher in unserem alternativem System das auf den nForce2-Chipsatz basiert kaum lauffähig ist, d.h.
Conclusion: Ou seja, a plataforma EPIA acaba sendo uma mera curiosidade. Em nossa opinião, só vale a pena usá-la caso a aplicação onde ela seja usada necessite ser a menor possível, onde os apenas 17 x 17 cm da placa-mãe mini-ITX da VIA farão diferença.
