Default Via demo Crysis on Nano 1.8 Ghz Mini-ITX

Awesome, Tweaktown shows Crysis running on Via Nano ITX computer at 1.8 Ghz (with the help of a GeForce 8600 GT). Looks like Crysis does not make heavy use of CPU after all...



BTW it's running Windows Vista Ultimate 64 bit edition, not bad for that small CPU

Wow!

Not bad at all.

I wish this technology was around when I made that Atari ITX system. The 2.4Ghz P4 I stuffed in there runs hot, sucks a lot of power and is probably 1/3rd the speed of this thing...

Though I think it'd be hard to compete with one of these:

If only I could find one for sale...

it would be awesome if Asus makes an eeepc with this chip and a low power nvidia gpu rather than the Intel mobile celeron 600-900mhz + Intel 915gm video chipset combo they currently use. the smallest fastest portable gaming machine.
