The Intel Turbo Boost Monitor application is a Microsoft Windows sidebar gadget that displays processor frequency and enables processor cores to run at the highest possible frequencies within their thermal limitations. Intel Hybrid multi-monitor enables an integrated graphics processing unit (GPU) to work together with a discrete GPU, which enables use of more than two independently driven displays. Mini-ITX is a 6.7-by-6.7-inch low-power motherboard that often can be cooled passively because of its low power consumption, and is useful for fanless applications in embedded computingand other uses.

AIMB-270 comes with RAID 0, 1, 5 and 10 software support, as well as dual PCI Express-based Gigabit Ethernet ports that move data as fast as 1,000 megabits per second. Software drivers and APIs include GPIO, SMBus, watchdog timer, hardware monitor, panel backlight on/off, and brightness control. Supported operating systems include Windows 7, Windows XP, XPEmbedded, Windows CE, and Linux.
