Today, GIGABYTE announced its first socket LGA 1150 motherboards that are designed around Intel's new H81 chipset for entry-level builds. To kick things off, the company announced three different H81-based mainboards--H81M-DS2, H81M-D2V, and H81M-D3V--which are all based on the micro-ATX PCB standard that measures in at 226mm x 170mm.

H81 Express is said to basically be B85 Express sans the SBA and a lower number of SATA 3 ports. Each board is expected to retail in the $50 range, with the H81M-DS2 focusing in on legacy connectivity by featuring a serial port and parallel port to accommodate older systems such as Point-of-Sale Machines. The H81M-DV2 loses the parallel port but retains the serial port and includes modern display connectivity such as VGA and DVI.

The H81M-DV3 shrugs off all legacy connectivity and includes just a DVI and the VGA port for display outputs. A common PS/2 connector is still available, but the serial and parallel ports are gone making it the ideal motherboard replacement for office PCs. All three boards use a common three-phase CPU power design and feature two DDR3 DIMM slots and a single PCIe-x16 slot.
