Grafikkortstillverkaren Point of View har alltid varit goda vänner med NVIDIA och nu har man ännu en gång visat detta genom att lansera ett moderkort baserat på tillverkarens Ion-styrkrets. Ion är som bekant en kraftfullare plattform för Intels Atom-processorer och POV har visat sitt grafiska intresse genom att bland annat utrusta moderkortet med en PCIe x16 plats för kraftfullare grafikkort. Men eftersom Ions integrerade GeForce 9400 grafikkrets är nog så stark för att göra Atom-processorn till flaskhalsen är det kanske inte direkt så nödvändigt. Kortet har dubbla SO-DIMM minnesplatser och både DVI samt HDMI-utgångar.

Defined by all-roundness, the boards are equipped with numerous in and output connections. The graphical output connections are DVI, VGA and HDMI whilst the audio is taken care of through the SPDIF output connection. For more common functionalities the system also has regular analogue stereo in and outputs. Last but not least: no less than four USB 2.0 ports (and two internal USB channels) will be available to connect your peripherals such as USB sticks, external hard drives, DVB-T USB adapters and more.
