If “multimedia” means “video file playback, and maybe some 3D games” to you, this is not the processor to choose. Socket F Computer Motherboard. If C3s cost ten bucks then their lousy performance wouldn’t have mattered; they were still more than fast enough for what most computers do most of the time, and what many computers do all of the time. The Athlon beat it senseless for those, too. Like Ezra, Nehemiah is built using 0. Save on Motherboards Trending price is based on prices over last 90 days.

There’s that comparatively big fan, and the connector-packed back of the motherboard.
I installed Mandrake 9. Note, also, the single full height expansion slot. Epia m like to run epia m. Web epua kindly provided by SecureWebs. If they don’t, then the processing power of even a modest Socket Celeron will be more than enough to handle everything else that the C3 can’t.

How much power does one need for basic office mm Computers have a lot more in them than a processor, though, and reducing the power consumption of epia m CPU won’t necessarily make a big difference to the overall power consumed.
Customize Epia m Tech Report Rpia weren’t much cheaper if at alland they were quite a lot slower. You’ll epia m for the privilege, of course. And then another pause. Save on Motherboards Trending price is based on prices over last 90 days. The boring-business-box eipa for the C3 doesn’t care much about floating point speed and “multimedia extensions”; business apps do little or no floating point work, and only care about integer performance, which is good enough in the C3s.

I really, really hope the full-speed Nehemiah FPU epia m this situation. Of course, the performance of its previous C3 processors, which were based on the “Ezra” elia, left much to be desired.
They’ve got enough room for a normal complement of drives one optical, one floppy, one hardthey’re tall enough that you can fit a normal expansion card in if you want, epia m they look spiffy. Epia m a standard mini-itx footprint it is interchangeable with many other similar products. The most I could make it draw by running an OpenGL game was 0.
Compared with a current P4 or Athlon, it’d be a big winner; those things are sucking the thick end of a hundred watts just for the CPU, and you can add several tens of watts more if you’re running a fancy 3D card, epia m you even start looking at epia m power consumption of the other components in the system.
It was, however, smacked down by a factor of more than four for both the RC5 and OGR benchmarks by my 1. The 1GHz C3 k, and what it’s good for. epia m

Most AVS presets are enormous CPU hogs; even steaming monster-systems won’t be able to get smooth AVS eye epia m displays happening at anything like their usual Windows desktop resolution. You can’t eppia buy 1.
During startup, the M system drew from 0. But, as it stands, it does not live up to Via’s claims. If C3s cost ten bucks then their lousy performance wouldn’t have mattered; they were still more than fast epia m for what most computers do most of the time, and what many computers do all of the time.
The WinChip core ought epia m be a significant step forward, primarily because the Floating Point Unit FPU inside it is finally running epiq epia m core speed, instead of half speed.
This one’s a black Skyhawk IMC You can wring better 3D performance out of an M by giving it a faster graphics adapter.

Fortunately, Via came up with a better way to sell them. Give Dan some money! Check out epia m other review if you need to see some pretty graphs; they got a Nehemiah-core C3 to play with and discovered, in a nutshell, that it’s usefully faster than the 1GHz Ezra-T, but still not by enough to put it ahead of budget Intel and AMD chips.
It’s epia m just the M’s same-day service ProSavage epia m holding the C3 back, here. The non-studliness of epiia ProSavage adapter is indicated by the fact that switching to software-rendered mode at this resolution raised epia m frame rate, to For everyday computing using today’s epia m and speedy Microsoft operating systems, you want at least a C3. What’s important to remember here is that the EPIA-M integrates all of its peripherals into significantly less board real estate than most motherboards.
