    Phoronix: AAEON EMB-BT1: A Linux-Friendly, Mini-ITX, Atom "Bay Trail" Board

    For those after a low-cost mini-ITX board for use within an HTPC, SOHO file server, or other low-power situations, AAEON has out an interesting board called the EMB-BT1, or more formally the AAEON EMB-BT1-A10-3825. This mini-ITX motherboard has onboard an Intel Atom E3825 "Bay Trail" SoC for delivering decent performance out of the six Watt SoC and having open-source-friendly graphics under Linux.

    Thanks drozek but youre answer is really vague. What I'm interested in is how one can boot Ubuntu. Should I use a SD card for this or I can install it on a Sata III hdd then plug the hdd to the board and it will work. It's an important distinction for me.

    PS: the fact that Ubuntu runs fine with the board it's already obvious from the review so nothing new here.

    Yes you can run Ubuntu 14 without a problem on this board.

    Hi, what chassis for a 2 x 3.5" HDD (standard but not slim) would you recommend ?
    I wan't to build a combined NAS & HTPC so the power consumption is the most important for me,

    thank you

    Also, Michael, since you are running ubuntu 14.04 could you post output of command
    Code:
    cryptsetup benchmar
    ?

    I wonder what is encryption performance (handy with home NAS scenario) of this CPU since it's the first ATOM with AES-NI

    Thanks.
    As far as I know, this CPU does support hardware AES hence should be very strong in SSL benchmarking. is there something wrong in configuration, Michael?

    the point is that i'm surprised to see steamroller leave up so well to an i3 4130

    Can anyone recommend other boards that small with 2x Ethernet for home router/server?

    Both are low cost boards

    I don't think that is good idea , but yeah Michael benchmarked E1-2100 with fglrx:
