The board, which measures a teeny 170 mm by 203 mm (6.7" x 8"), is designed for AMD's Live! Home Media Server platform. It can accommodate AMD Athlon 64 X2 and Sempron processors for Socket AM2, and it features a SiS 761 GX/966 chipset, PCI and PCI Express x1 slots, six Serial ATA ports (including an external eSATA port), and a Gigabit Ethernet port. Additionally, the board supports an optional trusted platform module chip, and it can drive as many as 10 LEDs to allow users to monitor the system.
According to Gigabyte, servers based on this motherboard are intended to be "light, compact and flexible," as well as an "always-on solution for PC backup, media streaming, communications and home control applications." The board—and perhaps servers based on it—will be available from Gigabyte in July.
