AMD's E-350 chip isn't a big performer. So it makes sense to put it in a small board.
The Mini-ITX Gigabyte GA-E350N-USB3 is as puny as they come, and yet gives nothing away to Asus's larger E35M1-M PRO when it comes to number crunching.
That said, we wouldn't recommend it for anything but basic computing. It's certainly not a plausible cut-price gaming platform.
For the record, the GA-E350N-USB3 does have a full range of overclocking settings in the BIOS.
However, no doubt due to the E-350 chip's highly integrated architecture, the available frequency headroom amounts to no more than a few hundred MHz.

Technology and cars. Increasingly the twain shall meet. Which is handy, because Jeremy (Twitter) is addicted to both. Long-time tech journalist, former editor of iCar magazine and incumbent car guru for T3 magazine, Jeremy reckons in-car technology is about to go thermonuclear. No, not exploding cars. That would be silly. And dangerous. But rather an explosive period of unprecedented innovation. Enjoy the ride.
