ASRock Trinity ITX board up for preorder
HTPC builders’ wet dream
The world’s first FM2 socket ITX board is available for preorder in Britain. ASRock is the culprit and the FM2A75M is listed at 74 pounds, so we assume it will end up around the €99 mark on the continent.
Mind you, although it’s tiny, the board is feature packed. Based on the A75 chipset, it has two DDR3 slots, two external USB 3.0 ports, with two additional headers on the board. SATA 6Gbps support goes without saying, along with eSATA, LAN, 7.1 audio and PWM fan support.
On the graphics side of things the board features VGA and HDMI outputs, but it also features a proper PCIe 2.0 x16 slot for discrete graphics, so it could easily be transformed into a small-form-factor gaming rig.
