MSI shows dua-core NetTop

Taiwan-area computer maker MSI has shown off a dual-core version of its small Wind Wind Nettop desktop PC, the D130. The new PC is powered by Intel's 1.6GHz Atom 330 dual-core CPU and 2GB of RAM. The desktop uses a power-saving design that uses up to 35W at its peak, which MSI estimates is 90 percent more efficient than the power consumption of a traditional ATX desktop that uses between 250W and 300W.

MSI partially achieves this low power consumption number by using passive cooling instead of a fan, which also helps to reduce noise levels to just 30dB. Other specs of the new PC include a built-in DVD burner, uncommon for most nettops, as well as 7.1-channel surround sound output.

No pricing information or launch dates have been announced for the D130, though MSI has so far made virtually all of its Wind line available in the US.
