    Phoronix: MSI Wind Box Intel Atom 330 NetTops

    Through Phoromatic you can easily build a benchmarking test farm with minimal effort and combined with Phoromatic Tracker you can monitor the performance of a given software or hardware component over the course of time. We used our own tools to launch a Linux kernel tracker that monitors the performance of the very latest Linux kernel code on a daily basis at kernel-tracker.phoromatic.com. We are also announcing another new, important public tracker coming soon, but first off, we needed a few more low-powered Intel Atom systems. We ended up purchasing two MSI Wind Box NetTops (the 6667BB-003US and 6667BB-004US) that are both based around an Intel Atom 330 dual-core processor within a very low-profile enclosure. The MSI 6667BB-003US utilizes Intel GMA 950 graphics while the 6667BB-004US boasts an ATI Radeon HD 4330 graphics processor. Here is our Linux look at these two Intel nettop computers.

    Any chance of reviewing a Tegra nettop? I'm betting it's twice the performance, half the cost, and one third the power consumption..

    Could you test video decoding with & without a Broadcom CrystalHD card?
    It's practically designed for a setup like this- sadly, it seems to be working with just XBMC (using the correct build).

    Haven't got any offers for a review unit yet... But soon as I need another system for this test farm being built, I will try to remember to order a Tegra... Potentially this week or as soon as I find an interesting model that's available (any suggestions?).

    My god... Could these graphical artist posiibly come up with anything even uglier than this?

    I so want to supervice the MSI's industrial design team... Hell I want to design it myself!

    And what it is up with the 3,5 bay? I guess it had to be so cheap that the negative price tag would make you money by buying one!
