A few days ago we were sharing you some infos on the EVGA H77 mini-ITX motherboards as well as it’s first specs. Today it’s Gigabyte’s turn to join kinda officially the mini-ITX motherboard family under the H77 chipset.
Gigabyte H77N-Wifi Motherboard
The H77N motherboard pictures that arrived on the internet today came from HWBOT’s massman that is now spending a bit of time in Taipei, the city of hardware as he likes to call it.
These small boards defenitely are driving more and more attention from the market and overclockers for their media center capabilities (strongly related to their small sized form-factor) and to their increasingly improved overclocking capability throughout the past five years. If you overclock on mini-ITX today, no-one is going to make fun of you. Soon you may even not be called a small player anymore!
Nevertheless, let’s stop digressing and let’s have a look at this board.
This board as for all Gigabyte mainboards now will come with the 3D UEFI BIOS interface, it supports the Gigabyte UD4 (Ultra Durable) standard and as specified by his model name, it comes with WiFi! Sweet, eh?
