VIA CORPORATE PROFILE



The VIA Embedded Platform Division (VEPD) is an autonomous new business unit established by VIA. Its aim is to provide our customers with a complete set of innovative platform building blocks for building high quality, high performance servers, workstations, PCs, and Total Connectivity devices that meet the needs of all market segments.


VPSD products include both mainboards and reference system designs such as the Information PC and InformationStation. Based on VIA's industry-leading chipset technologies, they not only deliver the highest levels of performance and reliability, but also come with the most advanced features and technologies such as DDR266 SDRAM support. As a result, VPSD products help OEMs and System Integrators increase their competitiveness by speeding up product time to market and reducing validation cycles.


To ensure the highest levels of quality, reliability, and compatibility, VPSD products undergo stringent testing during both the design and manufacturing phases and are built using top quality components. Boards are subjected to an extensive battery of stringent thermal, emissions, stress, environmental, signal quality, and BIOS functionality and compatibility tests across a full range of operating system platforms before being released for production. Manufacturing is carried out using state of the art equipment, and rigorous QA and QC procedures are applied at all stages of the production process.


VPSD products are backed up by a full range of support services through the company's branches and service centres in Taiwan, Europe, and the USA. Distributors and SIs are provided with hot swap RMA, while technical support enquiries can be handled by phone hotline or email.

 

PRODUCT INTRODUCTION



Today I will be reviewing VIA's latest Epia Mini-ITX incarnation, the MII10000. This latest model shares most of the features of the M10000 (Review HERE), but has a few new additions that cater to the consumer that wants the smallest possible footprint out of there new computer system.


Contrary to popular belief, you just don't need a 3Ghz system for a home or office machine. If you are only going to be surfing the net, typing up some email or office documents or watching the odd DVD or video, you are wasting your money by buying a powerful computer. Take this example as food for thought, do you really think you need a Corvette to go get groceries at the market? Didn't think so.


If you are in the market for a small package that is absolutely packed with features and has the power the plow through your day to day computing needs with ease, stick around and check out this motherboard.


What it has in store may surprise you for its size.
