Xi3 Corporation announced its ChromiumPC modular computer on may the 20th. This is the world’s first desktop computer designed to run Google’s Chrome operating system. The Xi3 ChromiumPC is housed in an aluminum chassis that holds three small but interconnected boards (or modules), namely the Processor Module, the Primary I/O Module and the Secondary I/O Module. The Processor Module houses the microprocessor and RAM, while the Primary I/O Module has the majority of external communications ports. The Secondary I/O Module houses the Ethernet, video and power connections. The ChromiumPC is powered by a dual- or single-core 64-bit, x86-based processor. Xi3 Corporation will launch the ChromiumPC in the second half of 2011.
