HTPC face-off: VIA EPIA EX vs AMD 690G
Trying to find words other than 'consistently disappointing' for the EPIA EX 15000G is exceptionally difficult. After meeting with VIA during Computex and being told playback compatibility was all down to the codec and bit rate, we tested as many iterations of popular codecs and sizes as we could find to see exactly where it fits. If you watch exceptionally low bit rate or exclusively non-HD content and DVDs then yes, the EPIA will suffice, however forget any sort of h.264 action, which is fast becoming the codec of choice.
