Pegatron uses SiS chipset

PC maker Pegatron has decided to use an SiS chipset instead of the NVIDIA Ion for its Ultra Slim Pegatron Atom NetTop, NotebookItalia reported on Friday. Like the NVIDIA chipset, which Pegatron used when it showed off a nettop prototype recently, the SiS672/968/307DV will also support Intel's low-power 1.6GHz Atom 230 CPU. While the SiS mainboard is likely cheaper than NVIDIA's, it is potentially slower as well.

The small form factor (displacing just 0.5L) Pegatron nettop can be mounted on the back of LCD monitors to create an all-in-one PC. The nettop will also support up to 2GB of RAM, has an integrated Wi-Fi connection and a PCI Express x1 slot. Other connections include two SATA2 ports, a gigabit Ethernet port and six USB 2.0 ports. The SIS307DV video bridge has a DVI video output and HDTV video encoder. The fanless PC uses 22W of energy.
