Prepares a mini-ITX H55 motherboard
Continuing its focus on mini-ITX motherboards aimed at the HTPC market, Zotac has decided to go Intel this time and announce a mini-ITX H55 based motherboard. The H55-ITX WiFi features support for Intel's LGA 1156 processors and even comes with a single PCI-Express x16 slot in case you decide to go for a discrete graphics card.
In addition to the PCI-Express x16 slot, the new H55-ITX WiFi also features two DDR3-1333 memory slots, a total of six SATA 3.0Gbps ports, Gigabit Ethernet, a bunch of USB ports, integrated 7.1-channel audio, eSATA port and DVI and HDMI outputs. It also comes with an integrated 802.11bgn 300Mb/s WiFi with Dual-Stream technology.
Support for enhanced DVD upscaling, Video De-Intelacing, Sharpnes Detail and Noise reduction technologies are also on board.
The new H55-ITX WiFi looks like an ultimate small form factor motherboard considering the fact that it supports Intel's Core i3, i5 and i7 CPUs and features almost everything that you might need in an SFF rig.
The price hasn't been revealed yet but we'll certainly update the article once we manage to score additional info.
