ECS announced the G43T-M3 motherboard which they are touting "delivers the best HD experience."
The new mATX motherboard features the Intel G43 Express chipset and Intel GMA X4500 graphics, which includes built-in support for HD video decoding without the need for any add-on graphics cards.
Should more graphics power be required, the board has a PCIe 2.0 slot. The G43T-M3 has support for up to 12 USB 2.0 ports, 6 SATA ports, and sports DVI and VGA onboard. Unfortunately there is no HDMI or optical/coaxial SPDIF on the back I/O panel, which would make the board welcomed by many HTPC users.
There was no mention of price or availability in the full press release, which is available here.
