GIGABYTE today posted an update on its Tech Daily blog regarding a new small Mini-ITX motherboard that is in the works from the Taiwanese company.

The motherboard is based on Intel's H55 Express chipset. Blog author Tim mentioned that it comes loaded with many audio and video features that are unprecedented in motherboards of this size and we would tend to agree with that statement. He reckons that "dynamite does come in a small package!" What's interesting is that we saw on a Chinese blog that the board will also come with USB 3.0 ports, which makes it the first Mini-ITX board to come with the new SuperSpeed connectivity.

 

TweakTown was able to obtain a picture of the upcoming motherboard, which sits next to a comparatively giant X58A-UD7, for some prospective on its actual size. The shot of the board you can see above is of a non-final sample and we are not totally sure when the board will go on sale, but we expect pretty soon.
