"Two recent motherboards we had looked at that
illustrate this trend is the M3A780GXH/128M and the X58
SuperComputer, both of which motherboards had bolstered a nice set
of features, were priced well, and carried other unique advantages.
ASRock has not only been focusing upon driving innovation into
their motherboards, but now other products too. In conjunction with
Pegatron Corp, ASRock has released its first Atom-based nettop
computer. We have our hands on this new ASRock NetTop ION 330
product and to say the least it is a wonderful system using Intel's
Atom processor with NVIDIA's ION platform.
"Along with the dual-core Intel Atom 330 processor and GeForce
9400M ION GPU, the ASRock NetTop ION 330 ships with 2GB of DDR2
memory, a 320GB Serial ATA 2.0 hard drive, and a DVD Super-Multi
Drive. This system is similar to that of the ZaReason Ion Breeze
3770 but is smaller and uses the Atom 330 compared to the Atom 230,
which is not a real dual-core processor. ASRock also is proud of
the NetTop ION 330 for its very small form factor, silent operation
(below 26 dB), stylish look, and low power consumption."
