Superb board, just needs PCI-ex
This review is from: MSI Wind Board D510 Intel Atom D510 BGA559 Intel NM10 Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU Combo
Pros: The new dual core hyperthreading Atom is amazing. Super low power, four cores in server 2008 x64 and amazingly fast. I'm using this as a backup to my NAS server and I'm thinking of getting another one to replace my current NAS server (see other thoughts). Uses ~50 watts less than my current NAS with the same hardware except the motherboard which is using a single core AMD and the RAID card being PCI-ex.
Cons: PCI needs to die. This board would be better with PCI-express. One 1x would be best, maybe an 8x or 16x if at all possible, just get rid of PCI please.
Other Thoughts: I've streamed about four movies at the same time from this box and the processor as a whole never reached 2% over all four cores. On my single core NAS doing the same thing would be at 30-40%. Both on gig network. This reason and the power savings are good enough for me to order another one.
