J&W ships the mother of all ITX boards

Written by Fudzilla staff


890GX, PCIe 2.0 x16 and much more
We wrote about J&W’s first ITX motherboard based on AMD’s 890GX chipset a few months ago. The board was not available back then, but now it’s finally shipping in EU markets. Judging by the spec, it’s probably the best ITX board for AMD processors on the market today, but it’s also one of the priciest.

Thanks to the SB850 southbridge the Minix 890GX packs two USB 3.0 ports as well as four SATA 6gbps connectors. There’s also a PCIe 2.0 x16 slot, as well as a mini PCIe slot. The board features integrated Radeon HD 4250 graphics with 128MB of SidePort memory and it offers VGA, DVI and HDMI outputs. It also features hybrid CrossFireX support.

In addition the board packs four plain USB 2.0 ports as well as 2 SO-DIMMs for DDR3 modules. Bluetooth and b/g/n wireless are also on board.

All in all, this tiny feature packed board could put many proper ATX boards to shame. However, all this comes at a price. The board is currently listed at €169, so it’s not what we’d call affordable, but it’s impressive nonetheless.
