Gigabyte Technology, one of the largest makers of mainboards on the planet, this week introduced H77TN and B75TN mainboards that comply with mini-ITX form-factor and feature slim connectors, which allows to use them to build all-in-one (AIO) as well as ultra-thin systems without compromising connectivity options.

“Gigabyte’s thin mini-ITX motherboards underline our commitment to the desktop PC market and cement our leadership position in the high growth AIO segment. By embracing new form factors like thin mini-ITX, Gigabyte is enabling continued innovation in desktop PC design while also opening doors to market segments, such as industrial PCs, that we have not traditionally serviced,” said Henry Kao, vice president of Gigabyte motherboard business unit.


The Gigabyte H77TN and Gigabyte B75TN mainboards are based on the Intel H77 and B75 chipsets supporting Intel Core “Sandy Bridge” and “Ivy Bridge” processors in LGA1155 packaging. At just 17cm*17cm, and a mere 2.5cm high, Gigabyte thin mini-ITX motherboards also integrate flexible power specifications that include a selectable panel power driver, selectable back light power including 12v and 19v options, and a wide 12v to 19v voltage input range for a variety of power source options. Gigabyte thin mini-ITX motherboards offer excellent IO flexibility with a x4 PCI Express expansion slot accompanied by both mSATA and mini PCIe slots offering a wide range of modern and legacy IO options.


Featuring a low profile design that is 43% thinner than traditional mini-ITX motherboards, Gigabyte thin mini-ITX motherboards offer a full featured PC experience with performance and specification options similar to traditional desktop PC setup. In addition, Gigabyte’s thin mini-ITX motherboards also offer flexible power input and IO expansion specifications that make them suitable for a broad range of commercial and industrial PC designs that also conform to Intel’s thin mini-ITX specification.

“IDC is expecting the AIO growth rate to be about 26% over the next three years. It is no surprise that AIO is the hot growth market for desktop systems in 2013 and beyond. We are thrilled to see Gigabyte participating in the development of this important AIO ecosystem. In particular, we are excited to see Gigabyte enabling new products, based on the Intel B75 and H77 Express chipsets, for both small business and home platforms. I look forward to the new AIO systems, built upon these new Gigabyte Thin mini-ITX motherboards that will soon be in the market,” said Steve Dallman, Intel vice president for the reseller channel.
