Zotac announces mini-ITX GeForce 8200 board

Written by test

Compact HTPC board

Zotac seems set in making its mark in the motherboard market by producing a range of consumer friendly mini-ITX boards; and its latest addition, the GeForce 8200-ITX WiFi seems like it would be a likely candidate for a lot of HTPC systems.

The tiny board does have its limitations, of course, but with four SATA ports with RAID support, a single PCIe x1 slot and a custom WiFi 802.11b/g module and two DDR2 memory slots, it's still fairly expandable. Add to this two PS/2 ports, six rear USB 2.0 ports, Gigabit Ethernet, DVI with audio and a DVI to HDMI dongle, a D-sub connector and three audio jacks for 5.1-channel analog audio and you have a fairly feature-packed mini-ITX board.

The board doesn't have an IDE connector, but this shouldn't be too much of a problem and the power regulation seems to be limited to 3-phase, so don't expect to use any AMD processors over 65W with this board.

No pricing or availability date was announced, but we're hoping this will be a cheap board, similar to some of Zotac's past mini-ITX boards.
