CES isn’t quite here, and companies are trying to generate as much buzz as they can. MSI is no exception, slowly giving out little juicy bits of information regarding their upcoming product launches. The new Wind Top AP1920 All-in-one will use Intel’s new Pine Trail platform. There finally seems to be a split in Intel’s focus on the Atom chips – whereas the Pine Trail mobile chips have the same performance but much better power efficiency, the Pine Trail desktop CPUs reportedly keep the same power efficiencies but increase the performance.
MSI will be setting out two versions of the nettop: one features the D410 single-core CPU and the second the D510 dual-core CPU. In addition to the Wind Top AP1920, we can expect to see two of MSI’s Wind Boxes at CES: the DE220 and DC500. Both are nettop-class products. While the DE220 seems like a typical tiny box nettop computer (including the ability to mount to a display and create your own all-in-one, the DC500 sounds different. In MSI’s words:
|“The DC500 is a highly original device. Designed to stand upright on a desk, it is approximately 60% smaller than a conventional 15L desktop PC, making it the ideal choice for people who want to be able to save energy and save space.”|
