VIA partners with Tranquil PC on low-profile, fanless Media Center PC
Press release, Editor, DigiTimes.com, Taipei [Tuesday 1 February 2005]

VIA Technologies and Tranquil PC have announced the availability of the compact Tranquil PC Media Center 2005, model T2e.MCE2005s, powered by the latest VIA EPIA SP13000 motherboard and Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005.

The T2e.MCE2005s features a noiseless processor and northbridge cooling system – a twin-piped passive cooling system that eliminates the need for cooling fans on the processor, power supply and case, and leaves the spindles of the storage and optical drives as the only moving parts in the whole system, according to the companies.

Optimized for the living room and other noise-sensitive areas, the system addresses the issue of unwanted PC noise, provides “personal electronics” design value, and features all the benefits of running Microsoft Windows Media Center Edition, commented Richard Brown, associate vice president of marketing for VIA.

The system is built around the VIA EPIA SP13000 Mini-ITX motherboard, which features low power consumption and numerous levels of integration, as well as offering dual digital tuners, 6-channel surround audio, integrated graphics and a 1.3GHz VIA C3 processor, according to David Thompson, president of Tranquil PC.

The Tranquil PC measures 330×255×63mm and is available in black or silver with a polished clear front panel with blue back-lit tones.
