The Tranquil PC UK will shortly launch Windows Home Server and Windows Media Center based machines running new Intel Atom 330 processor! The 330 is a 1.6GHz dual core, dual wafer chip which, according to Tranquil, displays as 4 x CPU history streams in Task Manager, and is 64-bit compatible, which really is a must-have for potential future versions of Windows Home Server. The 330 will come soldered onto Intel’s new D945GCLF2 mobo, a mini-ITX board based on the 945GC chipset and GMA 950 integrated graphics.
The new Windows Home Server specification is served up in a special blue edition of Tranquil’s T7 chassis, called the T7-HSG which comes complete with the new processor and an upgrade to Gigbit LAN. The standard black chassis is also available as an option. Base price is £299 +VAT, with upgrade options available across RAM and Storage.
A new, special edition Media Center is also due to be released, featuring the Atom 330 Processor, dual DVB-T tuners and up to 2TB storage - further details on this system are currently unavailable.
