I think the picture says it all folks - this will form the smallest PC we'v ever done. The board is less than 5 inches on each side and we're having a custom aluminium enclosure built that measures 13.5 x 13.5 x 5.5 cm. Yes it has a fan and yes we may produce a larger fanless version but the performance with two AMD Bobcat cores (2 x 1.6GHz) and the Ati 6310 onboard GPU have exceeded Ion 2 performance.
This comes with 4 x USB 2.0 Ports, 2 x HDMI ports, Gb Lan, and onboard PSU.
We've now released this with the G-Series T56N APU and it's on sale:
Flash 10.1 provided hardware acceleration on Windows and OS X which meant you could use the GPU and not the processor to do the heavy lifting on a 1080p Flash video. This was great for Ion and Ion 2 netbooks which had a basic Intel Atom CPU but a reasonably powerful onboard Nvidia chipset. It was available for Linux but hardware acceleration did not work.
We are releasing a new fanless, Ion 2-based PC (the H2) and I'm happy to report that hardware acceleration DOES work on Flash 10.2 and Ubuntu 10.10. It doesn't work out of the box and a few tweaks are required. You can use this tutorial as a starting point. As you can see in the screenshot of this 1080p BBC clip we had CPU utilization of 25% or less on an Atom D525 CPU (2 x 1.8GHz). Without hardware acceleration this CPU would completely maxed out and you would have about 2 frames per second. With hardware acceleration active, you get smooth 1080p flash playback.
