    That processor looks massive (obviously the die aside) until you notice the VGA and RJ45 ports. I want a phone with this or an Atom in it.

    I think the package you are looking at is the chipset (northbridge/southbridge) in one silicon chip. The CPU is actually the smaller package on the left. In normal operation both would share the same heatsink which would cover most of the board.

    Thats pretty impressive.
    If they were a reasonable price I could think of quite a few projects these could be used for
