Techno Desire Cubed
Behold the latest advancement in personal computing by Xi3.com. This tiny tot of a computer packs a behemoth punch of computing power. We have come a very long way in 31 years since IBM first introduced the first (now considered a monstrosity) Personal Computer (5150 PC) in 1981.
Just so you tech buffs don't start arguing amongst yourselves as to the original PC specs were, here they are: CPU: Intel 8088, 4.77MHz, RAM: 16K,(640K max), Display: 80 X 24 text, Storage: dual 160KB 5.25-inch disk drives, Ports: cassette & keyboard only,OS: PC-DOS v1.0.
Xi3 has managed to truly re-design the PC from the ground up. Gone is the run of the mill single motherboard design concept we are all used to seeing in both desktops and laptop form. Instead, they use a modular back plane architecture concept. Because the Xi3 architecture separates standard system components, such as processor and memory, from customer or special application requirements, the Xi3 design approach allows for rapid and inexpensive development of new and innovative technologies.
This is the first architecture to separate the SouthBridge chip of a chipset solution from the core processor and the NorthBridge chipset. This innovative "SouthBridge agnostic" design means that any number of SouthBridge chips can easily be developed into a working product regardless of the processor or NorthBridge in the "core" design.
What does that mean to you? Consider a tiny sleek all aluminum cube computer producing specs like this: 1.8 Ghz Dual-Core 64-bit 3400e, 1MB L2 Cache, supported by the 780E NorthBridge and SB710 SouthBridge chipsets, 2GB DDR2 memory, with dual 2560X1600 display outputs, eSATA 3.0, 2.5 and 1.5 support, USB 2.0 support, 16GB mSATA SSD (up to 129GB).
The environmentally conscious, will certainly appreciate that it sips power, consuming only 20 Watts! Large scale businesses will enjoy the fact it will keep their power bills down.Continued on the next page
