Intel has released a motherboard that has me pretty excited. Not as much as I was when I first heard about it, but still excited. Initially I mistook the report as saying the board only used 4 watts of power. That would be amazing! I have a couple of systems that run over 100 watts. It turns out that the chip (processor) uses 4 watts. The chipset that drives the rest of the board uses another 22 watts. That still leaves the board running at under 30 watts which is still good. I’m considering this board for my next build. Unless something better comes along of course.
