ZOTAC announced a new mini-ITX motherboard today called the A75-ITX WiFi, which is designed for gaming and HTPC applications. The company tried to pack in as many features as possible in the small form factor, and all things considered it did a pretty good job of it.

Running on the AMD A75 chipset, the A75-ITX WiFi has an FM1 socket that supports AMD’s A8, A6, A4, and E2 APUs and Radeon HD 6000-series graphics. The board has two memory slots and can handle up to 8GB of DDR3-1866MHz.

For expandability, the A75-ITX WiFi has a single PCI-E x16 slot as well as eight USB 3.0, two USB 2.0, and four SATA 6Gbps ports. In terms of connectivity, ZOTAC did not disappoint, with dual Gigabit LAN ports, 802.11n WiFi, and Bluetooth 3.0 on board.

Other nice features include being Blu-ray playback ready and having DVI, HDMI, and VGA ports.

These mini-itx Zotac boards are really attractive. I've had my eye on the z68 version too.

Now you're just mashing it!

Sounds great, especially since many of these ITX boards only take SODIMMs. My only question would be how much? But one of these could make for a great little gaming rig, at least if youre working at low resolutions.

These little boards sure do pack a punch nowadays, not much missing at all.

I just put together an Intel mini-ITX machine using a Zotac H67 board. I was pretty impressed. Plenty of features (WiFi for one) and good for the price. I'd definitely do another ITX build with one of these. Probably on a Intel platform though.

Pretty sweet little board. I would love to build an HTPC out of one of these things.

The A8 on a socket FM1 board is a good way to go on a budget. I have one in the M-ATX format and it's a fun little PC.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

Yeah! I'll have to agree that this mini-itx motherboard is a good investment, especially if your into AMD products.Wink Although I do use AMD products, but not to the extent of using Intel.Cool I like that it has 802-11n Wi-Fi built in, 8 USB 3.0 ports, 2 USB 2.0 ports & 4 Sata 3 @ 6GB/s ports all in a small compact board. Bad luck though that I have already got my intel based MSI micro-atx board set up with a Core i5 680 @ 3.6 GHz, retail boxed windows XP Pro SP2 updated to SP3. I do like to keep my boards for well over a year.Wink The one that I am using to get onto this forum & also I intend to dual boot this with XP Pro x64 bit as I have left 100GBs of spare HDD space on my velociraptor.Cool Also I disagree with the terms being downgraded to Sata 6GB/s No instead of just typing in Sata 3 or just Sata 3 @ 6GB/s.Yes I got the feeling that they done this because I have noticed in the past that those idiots could not always get it right on their motherboard sites.Angry
