VIA ships dual-processor mini-ITX board (also on Slashdot)

The VIA DP-310 with two 1ghz eden-N processors looks pretty cool. My one concern is whether the two processors would generate more heat, or if two small fans would be too loud for a media center application. I’m definitely stoked about the new CN400 media chipset and want see how well the MPEG2 and MPEG4 accelleration really works. I only see a DVI port, I wonder if there will be some sort of dongle or header for svideo.

Also of interest is this General Micro Systems 2.3 GHz mini-itx system dubbed the P620 Hawk
