Gigabyte has rolled out one of the first mini-ITX motherboards that is based on Intel’s new quad-core Celeron J1900 SoC, the J1900N-DV3. The quad-core chip on the board is clocked at 2.0 GHz. The chip is passively cooled with a heatsink and is wired to two DDR3 slots which can hold up to 8GB of dual channel DDR3-1333 memory. For expansion you have a legacy PCI slot and a mini-PCIe 2.0 x1 slot.
When it comes to storage and connectivity there are two SATA 3 GB/s ports, LPT parallel port (by header), two RS232 serial COM ports, PS/2 keyboard/mouse ports, D-Sub display output, 6-channel HD audio, two gigabit Ethernet interfaces, four USB 3.0 SuperSpeed ports, and DVI digital display output.
Even better is that the board will run AMI UEFI BIOS. No word yet on pricing.
