ABIT's HDMI-Certified SFF Motherboard
DailyTech has just received word that ABIT is planning to launch the industry's first HDMI-certified motherboard. Based on the Intel 945GT chipset, the SFF motherboard support Yonah and eventually Merom. Armed with an array of of ports and interfaces including SATA 3.0Gbps, Firewire, 15-pin D-Sub, 7.1 audio ports, and obviously HDMI. Apparently, the collective prayers of HTPC users have been answered as they finally have a way to easily interface with those gorgeous new HDTV's without any negative impact to image quality. Unfortunately, there is no PCI-E x16 graphics slot so that HTPC won't be doing much in the way of gaming with this board.
