VIA Introduces ARTiGO A1100 DIY PC Kit

VIA Technologies today announced the launch of its latest DIY PC kit, VIA ARTiGO A1100, a sub-liter DIY PC kit for enthusiasts who want to taste the most extreme, ultra-compact desktop computing experience.

The VIA ARTiGO A1100 takes inspiration from Pico-ITX, cramming a range of features that include a 64-bit processor, HD video support, HDMI and VGA display connectivity, Gigabit networking, Wi-Fi support and five USB ports, all into a PC chassis that fits into the palm of your hand.

The VIA ARTiGO A1100 is powered by a 1.2GHz VIA Nano processor, joined by the VIA VX855 media system processor, a fully integrated all-in-one chipset.

The novelty is claimed to be the smallest full-featured PC Kit available today. With dimensions of a mere 5.7" x 3.9" x 2" (14.6 cm x 9.9 cm x 5.2 cm), totaling only 44.46 cubic inches or 752cm³, this mini-PC is suitable for a variety of applications in the home or office, including home server, media streaming and surveillance applications. The VIA ARTiGO A1100 can also be used as a regular desktop PC, using only a fraction of desktop space.

The front and back panel I/O includes HDMI and VGA ports, a Gigabit Ethernet port, five USB ports, including one USB device port, three audio jacks with optional wireless IEEE 802.11 b/g and SD card reader modules.

In turn, VIA VX855 supports hardware acceleration for H.264, WMV, VC-1 and MPEG 2/4 at high bitrates and display resolutions of up to 1080p with very low CPU utilization. The VIA Vinyl HD audio codec provides 6-channel DTS capable audio while an onboard HDMI port is included for seamless connection to the latest HDTV displays.

VIA ARTiGO A1100 offers easy installation of system memory, hard drive, wireless module and SD card reader. Supported operating systems include Microsoft Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP and a variety of Linux distributions.

VIA ARTiGO A1100 is available now from the recently launched VIA Online Store (store.viatech.com), retailing at US$243. The first ten customers get a special early bird discount price of only $199.00.
