The Aopen EZ65 XCcube is based around the powerful, yet thrifty Intel i865G Northbridge chipset, and ICH5 Southbridge. It supports any Socket478 Pentium 4 Northwood processor, but it is unclear if it will work with the newly released Prescott core (known to demand a little more power than previous processors). The board has two available DIMM slots for upto 2GB of DDR RAM, in the PC3200 region. Other standard features include 5.1 audio, IEEE 1394, Serial ATA, Gigabit LAN (Broadcom), 8X AGP and PCI slots.
The EZ65 XCcube is equipped well enough to replace a standard workstation PC in the home or office, at just a fraction of the space required for a full-sized computer. AOpen's XCcube can also be used in places where space is an issue, and where the multimedia powers of a small computer would be great; for example, as part of a home theatre set up.
