After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain. I purchased Hardwareasylum.com in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain. If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration.
Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at Hardwareasylum.com
As some of you know Albatron got their start in the motherboard field and has since expanded into video cards. It is no secret that the motherboard market is plagued with very low margin on return so unless you find a niche to occupy you cannot venture beyond and introduce new features. Albatrons approach to this is the introduction of their ITX and DTX form factor systems. These are "all in one" motherboard solutions similar to the VIA offering with the exception that these can come equipped with AM2 X2 processors, dual channel DDR2 (SODIMM) memory, and 4 SATA drives with RAID support.
They are currently designed to fill the home server space but can also be used for HTPC or any other small form factor application.
