CeBit 2005: VIA unveils EPIA DP-310, a dual-processor Mini-ITX mainboard

At CeBit 2005 VIA Technologies launched the VIA EPIA DP-310 mainboard, the first Mini-ITX product designed to host two processors — 1GHz VIA Eden-N CPUs (in 15x15mm nanoBGA packaging). The novelty bases on the VIA CN400 Northbridge and VT8237R Southbridge.

According to the company, two EPIA DP-310 mainboards can fit into a single 1U chassis, or one mainboard per ½U chassis with two chassis back to back on each rack level. This makes CPU density raise up to 168 processors per fully-configured 42U rack at only 2.5kW of power.

The list of proprietary technologies includes VIA PadLock Hardware Security Suite for on-the-fly data encrypting/decrypting and VIA PowerSaver 3.0 for advanced power management.

Other features introduced by the chipset include the UniChrome Pro integrated 2D/3D graphics core (hardware video acceleration, Chromotion CE engine that supports hardware MPEG-2/-4 acceleration), 2 x DDR400/333/266 SO-DIMM sockets (up to 2GB), 10/100/1000Mbps Gigabit Ethernet and dual 10/100Mbps LAN, 2 x Serial ATA connectors, 1 x ATA-133, up to 4 x USB2.0, VIA Vinyl 6-channel Audio support, RJ45 header, AC’97 header, 1 x SM Bus Connector, PS2 header for KB/MS, 2 x Serial Port Connectors for 1 x Com Port and 1 x 10-pin header for RS232.
