Just when you thought desktop PCs couldn’t get any smaller, VIA comes along and introduces an insanely tiny new x86 motherboard platform.

Pico ITX Motherboards by VIA

VIA’s ultra-mini Pico-ITX mainboards measure in at just under 3″ x 4″ – about 75% smaller than the Mini-ITX format. Initial models feature a unified VX700 chip which combines graphics processing, memory and device controllers on a single chip. The boards have VGA, Ethernet, SATA and ATA interfaces onboard, and support up to 4GB of DDR400/333 RAM. An optional daugtercard adds DVI, PS/2, USB and audio connectors.

The first boards built on the Pico-ITX platform cost around $300 each, and have started to ship this week.
