DFI makes mATX X58 motherboard

Written by test

Small but feature-packed

DFI has announced a new member of its Lanparty Jr. series of motherboards, and this time around it's something really out of the ordinary, a mATX X58 board. The Lanparty Jr X58-T3H6, as its known, is the first mATX X58 board that we're aware of.

Despite its small size, DFI hasn't skimped on features, as the board has the full six memory slots, a pair of x16 PCIe slots with full bandwidth and even a x4 PCIe slot. There's also a single PCI slot, six SATA connectors, one IDE port, a floppy connector and, of course, power and reset buttons as well as a debug LED display.

Around the back you'll find two PS/2 ports, six USB 2.0 ports, Gigabit Ethernet , a BIOS reset jumper and 7.1-channel audio with optical and coaxial S/PDIF out. There are also three headers on the board for an additional six USB 2.0 ports.

This crazy little board has no less than six fan headers (including the one for the CPU cooler) and there's a floppy-style power connector near the bottom PCIe slot for adding some extra power for power-hungry graphics cards.

No details on a launch date or pricing have emerged, but we'd guess this one won't be cheap.
