It's a miniITX motherboard. Most (?all?) of the time they use a VIA Eden
processor on these. As far as I can see that big "VIA" that's written on the
board is an Eden (and the Eden also comes clocked at 800MHz).

The bad thing is that this processor isn't up to encoding an MPEG2 stream. the
FPU unit clocks at half the speed. And more sophisticated FPU operations
(anything else than / * - +) are emulated on the interger unit.
