We previously reported on Bay Trail-D motherboards coming from ECS, GIGABYTE and Biostar, but today it is ASUS’ turn to add in a SKU to the mix.  The J1800I-C, like the others, uses a passive cooler on a mini-ITX motherboard.  Similar to ASUS’ recent styling on the mainstream segment, the J1800I-C heatsink comes in a gold color, and as the name suggests the motherboard uses the Celeron J1800 Silvermont based SoC.  This is a dual-core 2.41 GHz part, with turbo up to 2.58 GHz and a TDP of 10W.  The integrated GPU is a HD (Ivy Bridge) system at 688 MHz, which also has a turbo mode to 792 MHz.

The motherboard uses two SO-DIMM slots, and the SoC is limited to 8GB of DDR3L-1333 MHz memory.  We also have a PCIe 2.0 x1 slot, a mini-PCIe slot, two SATA 3 Gbps ports, one USB 3.0 port, 6 USB 2.0 ports (4 back panel, one header) with also VGA and HDMI video outputs.  The motherboard has a COM header as well as two 4-pin fan headers.  Audio comes via a Realtek ALC887-VD codec, and the LAN is a Realtek RTL8111G gigabit Ethernet controller.  ASUS is keen to promote that even on this low end SKU, users have access to the ASUS graphical BIOS and features like AI Suite 3, USB 3.0 Boost and Fan Xpert.

Similar to other Bay Trail-D motherboards, we expect the J1800I-C to be around $65 at retail.  The focus on such a motherboard/SoC combination is usually integrated systems, such as digital signage, although it could equally be put forward for a low power small form factor system.

    when did we stop calling those "atom"? intel naming scheme at it's best.

    Same chips are called Atom in servers and tablets, so who knows!

    Still Atom, Intel is releasing new versions so rapidly that only differentiating by using their number naming scheme tells little. The code names are more informative.

    No AES-NI on the Celeron... would be a sweet pfSense platform but I'll waif the the DFI BT161 with Atom and external DC power.

    and Intel i210 NICs

    Do these Bay Trail-D SoCs get the same ISP silicon as the Bay Trail-T models? And if so, do these motherboards provide any connectors for a camera interface?

    You guys should fix the distorted aspect ratio of the main page images. This board looked really flat. Can make someone think it's a thin mITX case at a glance.

    I recently purchased an Asus Motherboard and the problems started from day 1. The drivers update never works, the same for AI Suite III (there´s a lot of updates for this model in Asus webpage). After 2 months I still can´t install BitDefender cause a clock watchdog error.
    Asus technical support is the worst, mails comes and goes with no solution.
    I will not recommend this brand to anyone. The brand has a very good Marketing but the product and the service are very disappointment.
