While there were plenty of mATX and ATX socket AM4 motherboards, the mini-ITX motherboards for Ryzen CPUs have been pretty rare but it appears that this will change as Gigabyte is also working on such a motherboard based on AMD's B350 chipset.

Currently, only Biostar has unveiled its plans to introduce a mini-ITX socket AM4 motherboard, which is surprisingly based on a high-end X370 chipset, but the newest information coming from Reddit, suggests that Gigabyte is also working on a mini-ITX socket AM4 motherboard that will be based on a somewhat mainstream B350 chipset.

While there is still no picture of the motherboard, a leaked slide suggests that the new Gigabyte AB350N-Gaming WiFi motherboard will be gaming-oriented and have some neat features, like the Ultra Durable Metal Shielding over PCIe slots, integrated 802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth 4.2 as well as the unavoidable RGB Fusion LED design.

The rest of the specifications and features include two DDR4 memory slots, USB 3.1 Gen 2 ports with USB Type-C, Realtek ALC 1220 HD audio, Realtek GbE LAN, Smart Fan 5 features and even Gigabyte's UEFI DualBIOS feature.

Unfortunately, the same source does not suggest when it will be available but hopefully, Gigabyte will manage to get it ready before April, when AMD's Ryzen 5 six- and quad-core SKUs are scheduled to be available.
