New Bay Trail Motherboard upgrade - XBMC


Established Member
Hi All, I currently have a Pulsebox as my main HTPC running Openelec . It is a AMD Fusion E-350 with 4GB Ram , 60GB SSD. Currently performs very well but I am looking to upgrade. I have read a lot about the new Baytail NUC N2820 which runs Openelec very well which I am considering getting but I also cam across the new Baytrail Motherboards

GIGABYTE - Motherboard - CPU Onboard - GA-J1800N-D2H (rev. 1.0)

Comes with Celeron J1822 dual core processor . Now it is faster than the NUC chip as its a desktop processor instead of mobile device. It is a Mini ITX size so I am thinking of replacing the motherboard of my pulsebox with this utilizing my existing ram and SDD. My only concern is if this board will run openelec or not.
