MSI Unveils MS-98D3 ULP Motherboard

By - Source: TechPowerUp | B 5 comments

The MSI MS-98D3 mini-ITX embedded motherboard is powered by Intel's 4th Generation Processors and designed for advanced POS applications.

MSI has taken the wraps off the MS-98DS which aims to break the stereotype of POS as a "stand-alone cash register in a store or restaurant" and develop a high-end POS host to meet the demands of the fast growth of information technology and network communication. 

The embedded motherboard is powered by Intel's 4th Generation processors, features an ultra-low profile (ULP) thin Mini-ITX form factor and two DDR3/DDR3L DIMMs that support up to 16 GB of 1333 MHz / 1600 MHz RAM. Also included are two USB 3.0 and six USB 2.0 ports, SATA 3.0 and mSATA via the mini-PCIe slot.

With regards to outputs, the motherboard features internal and external VGA connectors, LVDS and DC-12V out for the second monitor, six COM ports (four of which are powered and controlled by the BIOS) and RJ11 "cash drawer" connectors.

    Looks good to me. I guess it will serve as an HTPC more though.
    How about pairing it with the CTL Mitac AIO Chassis ?

    What processors does it use, the 80486? It says fourth generation processors (8086, 80186/80286, 80386, 80486), so I guess that's it. The 486 is a fine processor, no doubt, but I hope they seriously bumped the clock speed past 133 MHz.

    I think ARM is better suited for this kind of task, especially in the power consumption area, because even with the ULP version, Haswell is a bit overkill
