Possible to build UMPC like OQO Tags: Homebuilt Build Systems Last response: September 29, 2006 12:20 PM in Systems Share metronome September 29, 2006 2:14:12 AM Well for some reason I have got it into my head that it may be possible to build a UMPC similar to what can be found with an oqo www.oqo.com/hardware/usage I have transmeta cpu's but I don't think I can get boards for them so the only thing that can be used are those low powered celerons or the via eden's which I think are the same thing as the C7. What I want to know is how powerful are these cpu's because from what I have read they aren't powerful enough to decode mpeg 4 encoded movies. If anyone could shed some light on the perforamce, power consumption and physical size I would be most appriative More about : build umpc oqo metronome September 29, 2006 2:48:31 AM what about epia's i think they have nano itx but i think they are the ones that have really bad performance? metronome September 29, 2006 12:20:45 PM Does anyone know if I can get hold of some benchmarks for them apart from the mini-itx.com site because they are all a little confusing. looking around on the net i estimate that the latest epia is rougly the same power as a p3 450. Which is a little slow for what I need. Looks like I will be having to use eden's then. Anyone know a good place to buy an eden? Can't find your answer ? Ask !
