    25W SoC, dual channel memory. Very interested to see what these are priced at when released.

    Techpowerup posted these images:

    In the same vein, just came across this while looking at more Computex coverage, Gigabyte Temash tablet (as I thought bulkier than ARM tablets but they are also making a claim at 14 hours of operation so some of that space might be for an all day sized battery):

    Dual channel? But I thought Kabini only supported single channel?

    Can Kabini take advantage of a dual memory channel configuration? It's the morning and my memory is spotty, but I thought it was single channel only?

    Surprised me too, could just be a misleading/wrong specification. Will keep an eye out for any 25W specs from other vendors.

    it's single channel for sure, just some confusion because the board have 2 slots (for the same channel)

    That and they put "Dual Channel" on the spec sheet* instead of just 2 x DDR3.

    yes, 2 slots, and you can buy 8GB modules, and Kabini only supports single channel.

    Here is a MSI shot, unfortunately the spec sheet is cut off but you can see it starts to say 2 DIMM.

    So ECS marketing just goofed, it seems.

    yes, just like Bobcat, you could use 2 modules (even 16GB), but in single channel, so it wouldn't help (to gain performance in terms of memory bandwidth)

    I fear I may be waiting till September for any of these boards to hit market, I hate waiting...

    If I had a choice right now I would probably buy the Sapphire Board
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    But when it finally hits market its going to come to I/O and price for me( I'm only interested in an A6). Any of these Itx boards could be custom cooled and made fanless. Sure wish Kabini's launch was like Haswell in terms of availability.

    Good news, looks like the first kabini itx motherboard should be on the market shortly according to this article(August 22nd).
    20,000 JPY for the A6-5200 (or $205) itx board or
    12,000 JPY for the E1-2100 (or $123) itx board

    I expect them to be significantly cheaper state side, can't wait to see them pop up on newegg/amazon!

    At that price they make no sense unless you are TDP limited. Much cheaper to get a regular miniITX+CPU.

    There is no compettion for those boards now, but if you guys can wait for BT they will reach bobcat level. Not that BT will have any of the htpc qualities as this but it will put great pressure on price.

    Right now there is a huge demand for kabini and the consoles is starting.

    What price can we expect for an A6-5200 board once the prices have stabilized?

    Should be 150-160$ at most considering the sub 100$ APU price.

    Kabini price tells me that either it is not as cheap as you think it is or AMD is really gorging on price.

    We know the prices of thoses APUs so the most likely
    is that MB manufacturers and/or retailers are massively
    cashing on a product that is still scarce for anybody
    else than OEMs.
