Zotac rolls out its H67-ITX WiFi motherboard

Written by Slobodan Simic

Sandy Bridge ready mini-ITX
Following the launch of Intel's Sandy Bridge CPUs, Zotac has announced its latest addition to the mini-ITX motherboard lineup, the H67-ITX WiFi.

As you could have guessed from the name, the new motherboard is based on Intel's H67 chipset and supports Intel's 2nd generation Core LGA1155 processors, also known as the Sandy Bridge.

The motherboard itself features a single PCI-Express x16 slot, two DDR3-1333 memory slots, two SATA 6.0Gbps and four SATA 3.0Gbps ports, Gigabit LAN, integrated 802.11n 300Mbps WiFi, four USB 3.0 ports and eight USB 2.0 ports, 7.1-channel audio ad has HDMI, DVI and Displayport outputs.

The motherboard gives you a lot of building options as you can either make a small HTPC with Intel's HD 2000/3000 graphics or even go for some high-end graphics card and make a mini-ITX gaming system.

Unfortunately, the price or the availability date haven't been announced but we guess it will hit retail after January 9th, or simply, once those Sandy Bridge CPUs are ready for selling.

Hmmm what is their motto for H67 boards? "No overclocking bonanza"? Atleast it's a mATX but for full fleged ATX it's truelly a disaster.....
For people rating me down, read the reviews and you'll find out 2 things:
1. H67 mobos have a display output (VGA+DVI) which taps into the GPU embedded in the SB CPU but it doesn't support overclocking, not even through multiplier.
2. P67 supports overclocking through multuiplier(for "K" seiries) but the mobos don't have a display connector sticking out of the I/O bracket(no VGA, DVI w/e) so although the CPU has a GPU, you can't use it with this boards.
FYI H67 are cheap while P67 are more expensive.
Neat, ha?
I think Intel needs to be kept in check cause they have been mental lately.

Part 2
Don't take my words for it, check the images out,
Here is a H67 motherboard:

And here is the P67 mobo:
http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Foxconn/Intel_P67_P67A-S/1.html
Look at the features or check the images and you will discover that H67s don't support overclock not even with "K" series, while P67s support OC only with "K" series but don't have a display connector (VGA or DVI) so they don't support the embedded GPU fused to the Sandy Bridge CPUs.Intel is pretty much screwing every customer looking for a midrange product with the hope of overclocking (which untill now was a very standard thing to do).
Good job Intel, 1 pin away and your good to go.
