Gigabyte has a killer FM2+ ITX board

If only you could buy a Kaveri...

Motherboard makers aren’t having a good year, but Gigabyte seems to be doing quite well, as it’s bucking negative trends and gaining market share.

One interesting product coming out of Gigabyte is a new FM2+ Mini-ITX board with a sweet price tag. The GA-F2A88XN-WIFI is based on AMD’s A88X chipset and it’s feature packed.

It has two DDR3 slots (PC3-17066U), a PCIe 3.0 x16 slot and a PCIe Mini Card slot, which isn’t available as it’s taken up by the WiFi-BT module. The module supports 802.11ac and Bluetooth 4.0.

The back features a DVI-D connector, along with two HDMI 1.4a connectors and a couple of USB 3.0 ports and four USB 2.0 ports. On the inside you can access another two USB 3.0 headers and four SATA 6Gbps connectors, along with two 4-pin fan connectors.

There’s clearly no lack of features for any SFF/HTPC lover and the price is pretty good, too. For years motherboard makers were overpricing their high-end mITX boards, but this baby is priced at just €79. The bad news? You still can't buy one, but they should be available in a week or so.
