Interesting, but it's of stock at newegg--as in it appears to be
discontinued. And it's socket 1155, not 1150 so it doesn't use the lower
power Haswell CPUs.

The point of these new ASrock (and Supermicro's similar) boards is that
they use the new Intel Atom Avoton CPUs:

4 or 8 cores
Low power (~half or less of a Haswell CPU)
Roughly half the overall compute power of a Haswell Xeon
AES-NI for encryption
Up to 64 GB of memory (Twice that of most small 1150 server boards, which
are chipset/CPU limited.)
Dual Gb NICs
Lots of SATA ports


all in a mini-ITX board.
