I'd like to start a thread to talk about the new Bay Trail-D mini-ITX motherboards that are supposed to be coming out any day now. We've all seen the press releases from last November so I don't want to include those here. What I'd like to see is real product pages from manufacturer websites and hopefully soon retailers. Once we start actually using them it'd be nice to know what everyone's experiences are, where they found them, good and the bad, etc.

Updated 9-May

ASRock
ASRock Q1900-ITX, Q1900B-ITX, Q1900DC-ITX, etc.

ASRock IMB-150
ASRock IMB-151

There are from ASRock's "IPC" series so no idea if they will be available to retailers. I'd like to see the IMB-151 since it has on-board power.

ASUS
J1800I-C



All of the manufacturers now have BIOS updates (or didn't need them) and driver support for Windows 7.

All the boards (except the MSI) are available at retailers all over the globe.

Some gotchas to watch out for:
- Some boards require low-voltage (1.35V) RAM so pay attention to the specs
- Intel's driver control panel for these motherboards is missing adjustable scaling for removing overscan
- Testing with the ASRock Q1900B-ITX in Windows 7 shows HD bitstreaming formats not supported by audio driver (might apply to other as well?)

Now we just need some retailers to start selling these babies. I have some worries though from what I've been reading in the BayTrail NUC thread around OpenELEC and Windows 7.

This should be the same platform as the Baytrail NUC am I right? There are so many Intel CPUs I have no idea what is what anymore.

Since I already have a case and everything I just want to know if I will get the same performance as with the DN2820 NUC.

I have the IMB151, been running it for a couple of weeks now with TBS6981

Only supports Win8, BIOS doesn't seem to like booting reliably with Win7
Limited drivers around and no new BIOS as yet

Seems pretty stable

Idles at around 7-8w without Sat Card, 1 SODIM and a mSATA card. No KB, Mouse or HDMI connected just Ethernet

I'm hoping there are a decent amount of options with the Celeron J1900. I want to use that for my server build.

I've been thinking about using an embedded solution like this one to run a simple NAS with 4 or 5 drives connected, but I'm not sure if I should go for something more powerful. Do you guys think these BayTrail boards would be enough to run FreeNAS with a PCI-express SATA card? I would really only need it to run a few things like Samba, Transmission, and maybe Couchpotato.
