While Jetway is not one of the most popular brands of motherboards among enthusiasts, they do offer a nice variety of mini ITX motherboards, such as the NC92 IPC and NC96-510-LF motherboards that we have reviewed at Phoronix. Both of these petite motherboards have been built around the Intel Atom processor, but for those looking to find a mini ITX motherboard that can harness a bit more power, there is the Jetway NC84. The Jetway NC84 is what we are testing out today under Linux, which is a mini ITX motherboard that can handle up an AMD Phenom processor, sports an ATI Radeon HD 4200 IGP, and four Serial ATA 2.0 ports capable of RAID 0/1/5/10.

Like the other Jetway ITX boards that we have reviewed, the NC84 arrived in a small package from Taiwan that was sent courtesy of Jetway as a review sample. The product packaging is generic to their mini ITX boards and inside the motherboard accessories included the user's manual, Windows driver CD, one COM header, two Serial ATA data cables, and the rear I/O panel.
