CES — Unless you still haven't read Scott's excellent Sandy Bridge review, you'll know the deal by now: Intel's new generation of processors packs a considerable punch, sometimes keeping up with hexa-core Gulftown chips despite having two fewer cores. And they don't cost all that much, either. Wouldn't it be neat to squeeze that kind of power into a Mini-ITX PC?
No need to daydream. Today at CES, Zotac showed us its H67ITX-A-E motherboard, which brings together a Sandy Bridge-friendly LGA1155 socket and Intel's new H67 Express chipset on a 6.7" x 6.7" Mini-ITX board packed to the gills with miscellaneous goodies.
Let's see... we've got two 240-pin DDR3-1333 slots, HDMI and DVI video outputs, a PCI Express x16 graphics slot, external Serial ATA, USB 3.0, Serial ATA 6Gbps, and built-in Wi-Fi. Add a Core i7-2600K, serve, and enjoy.
This could well be one of the very first Mini-ITX H67 boards to hit the market. One arrived in our labs right before CES, actually. We'll try to crank out a review soon after we get back.
