Recently I reviewed the Jetway NC96FL-510-LF mini ITX motherboard, with a dual core Atom processor and Intel chipset. I must say I was impressed by that little motherboards performance, however I wanted to find out just how much difference the Nvidia ION setup would make in basically the same board. So, as luck would have it, today we will be taking a look at the Jetway NC63-330-LF Mini ITX motherboard, which utilizes the Dual core Atom processor and the Nvidia ION chipset.
| As stated in my last review of the Jetway NC96FL, Mini ITX boards have become quite popular with uses varying from HTPC (Home Theater Personal Computers) systems, vehicle on board PC’s, and in computer modding as well. The addition of the dual core CPU’s are however also making them even more desirable, even for basic home computers. The one drawback that continues to haunt the boards is the low-end video graphics. However, as I stated in the NC96FL review, things are getting much better, in fact with the addition of the Nvidia ION chipset, it seems things are looking up in the video department of the mini ITX boards. |
As with most of the Jetway mini ITX boxes I have seen, there isn’t a lot of pictures of the board or information about the board printed on the box. Mainly a bit of artwork, a few logos and of course a sticker on the end of the box giving the board name/model number and a quick list of general details about the board. However, it’s what is inside the box we are interested in, and as far as specifications and details I will list those below.
