ASUS EeeBox PC Now Sporting An Intel Atom N330 Processor and NVIDIA ION Graphics


I’m not really surprised at all to see this news from ASUS, my only question is what took them so long. I remember when I first was shown the EeeBox and I wondered if it could handle 1080p Blu-ray, and how great it would be as an HTPC client. Well, now that has arrived.


ASUS is really taking things up a notch. We just learned about the company’s new Intel Atom N330 + NVIDIA ION mini-ITX board designed to compete with the Zotac IONITX-A-U called the ASUS AT3N7A-1. Well, folks… it appears that ASUS has quietly upgraded their ultra compact EeeBox PC with specs ready to challenge the barebones ASRock ION 330. I’ve got to hand it to ASUS for recognizing and acting on a hot trend. No word on price or availability, but it looks like it should be out sometime by year-end.
