Gigabyte to launch three mini ITX boards

VIA powered


It looks as if Gigabyte is about to release three new mini ITX boards, all fanless, thanks to the integrated VIA C7 processors. Don't expect a lot in terms of performance though, as the fastest CPU will be a 1.5GHz part; although two of the boards will only use a 1GHz CPU.

Neither board has any features that really stand out and they're all quite similar. The three models are the GA-7CN700ID, GA-C7V7-CSI-RH-SI and the GA-C7V7-ASI-RH-SI. The GA-C7V7-CSI-RH-SI is powered by the 1.5GHz CPU, while the other two models only have a 1GHz CPU.

All three models feature the CN700 chipset and the VT8237R Plus Southbridge. They all rely on a single DDR2 DIMM slot for memory and are limited to 533MHz memory. Each board also only has a single PCI slot, a pair of IDE and SATA connectors and onboard 10/100Mbit Ethernet. The Ethernet controller is slightly different here between the boards.

All three models also support 5.1-channel sound, but only AC97 rather than HD audio. The rear I/O consists of four USB 2.0 ports with a further four from onboard headers, a D-sub, serial and parallel port, an Ethernet port and three audio jacks. The GA-7CN700ID pictured below has an additional two serial ports.
