MSI Adds mini-ITX Motherboard

MSI revealed the new QM77 mini-ITX motherboard designed for use with Intel's Ivy Bridge or Sandy Bridge processors. When an Intel Ivy Bridge mobile CPU is installed, this motherboard can support up to three displays by D-sub, DVI, HDMI, LVDS, or eDP. With an Intel Sandy Bridge CPU, you'll get support for dual displays. Other key features include HD Audio, up to 16GB dual-channel DDR3 memory, Dual Gigabit Ethernet LANs, RS-232/422/485 serial ports for commercial applications, and optional TPM (Trusted Platform Module). Various storage interfaces are available on the MSI QM77 including SATAIII, mini SATA, Mini PCIe, Cfast, and USB connectors.

MSI QM77, the Flagship mini-ITX IPC Board

Taipei, Taiwan MSI IPC unveiled the cutting-edge QM77 mini-ITX board, designed for the high performance Intel® Ivy Bridge / Sandy Bridge Mobile CPU with integrated graphic processor for multiple displays and Intel® QM77 Express chipset , featuring the optional PCIe 2.0 / 3.0 slot, Dual-channel DDR3 SO-DIMMs for up to 16GB memory capacity and various I/O connectors for all kinds of peripherals. The fanless MSI QM77, power-saving, dust-free and noise-less, is durable under extreme environments and suitable to be applied in every industrial field, such as digital signage, kiosk, gaming, industrial control automation and POS.

The MSI QM77 supports triple displays from built-in D-sub, DVI, HDMI, LVDS or eDP (Embedded Display Port) by Intel® Ivy Bridge Mobile CPU while dual displays by Intel® Sandy Bridge CPU, delivering the Full HD graphics quality. Although it is designed in compact size, there is no compromised in functions and peripherals including HD Audio for excellent sound effect, Dual Gigabit Ethernet LANs for speedy network, RS-232/422/485 serial ports for commercial applications, optional TPM (Trusted Platform Module) for security, GPIO and so on.

In addition, the various storage interfaces are realized in MSI QM77. The built-in SATAIII ports, mini SATA port, Mini PCIe slot, Cfast slot and massive USB connectors are sufficient to cope with the future storage request. Furthermore, the eDP, enabling the video output to achieve the smooth and realistic 3D effect, is also ready for the emerging recreation and gaming markets.
