ASRock packs a tight punch with mini-ITX based A75M-ITX

Already on shelves in the land of the rising sun.

Here's a lovely candidate for pairing with the SVD-NC11-4 we mentioned a little earlier, as well as being a quick eye opener for HTPC or LAN builders looking to get a compact, budget build underway. A new Mini-ITX sized A75 chipset motherboard has reached shelves in Japan from ASRock, dubbed the A75M-ITX.

Japanese tech site Akiba PC has managed to get some hands on with it and ascertain what ASRock have packed onto this confined space. It's got a 4 phase power arrangement with two DDR3 memory slots, four SATA 6Gb/s ports and a dedicated x16 PCI-E slot.

The I/O area doesn't look to be lacking for a board of this stature with a combo PS/2 port, four USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, an eSATA port, both VGA and HDMI (w/ 1.4a support) display output and ASRock's XFast USB technology on tap.

We're yet to see it emerge in other markets, but to give you an idea on price, it's now shifting in Japan for about 8980 Yen ($116 US).
