    What is Mini-ITX?

    Mini-ITX is a motherboard form factor which has been designed to produce quieter and smaller computers. Mini-ITX board is around one-third of the size of the traditional ATX board. The considerable reduction in the size is achieved by soldering the components to the board instead of attaching them to the sockets. Removal of number of expansion slots also results in the reduction of the size. Mini-ITX motherboards are very small. The specification requires that the boards are 170mm x 170mm (6.75" x 6.75").

    The first Mini-ITX motherboard was created by VIA technologies in March 2001 to promote the low power C3 processor they had bought from Centaur Technology, in combination with their chipsets. In October 2001, VIA announced their decision to create a new motherboard division, to provide standardized infrastructure for lower-cost PC form factors and focus on embedded devices. The result was the November 2001 release of the VT6010 Mini-ITX reference design, once again touted as an "Information PC", or low cost entry level x86 computing platform.



    Since VIA focuses on IPC, their Mini-ITX products were designed and sold to the industrial and System Integrator markets. AOpen Inc. is the primary early provider that designed and marketed Mini-ITX motherboards to the consumer market in 2006.

    INTEL Based

    The first AOpen Mini-ITX motherboard is i945GTt-VFA, it supports 667 MHz FSB Intel Core Duo/Core Solo Socket 479 CPU and Intel Viiv technology for setting up a HTPC (Home Theater PC). The latest AOpen Mini-ITX motherboard is nMCP7ASt-V that adapts Socket 775 Intel Core 2 Quad/Core 2 Duo/Celeron FSB 533/800/1066/1333 MHz CPU, Dual Channel DDR2 667/800 MHz SDRAM up to 4GB, and a PCI Express x 16 Slot (Support nVIDIA Hybrid SLI technology and PCI Express 2.0 via nVIDIA MCP7A-S chipset).
    Recently, GIGABYTE Technology announced a mini-ITX P55 based motherboard. The board features the LGA-1156 socket with support for Core i3/i5/i7 CPUs. It includes two DDR3 memory slots, and a single PCI-Express x16 slot which is required due to the lack of integrated graphics. For connections it has eSATA and 4xSATA II ports, 8XUSB 2.0, 2XUSB 3.0, Gigabit LAN ,8 channel audio with SPDIF.


    AMD Based

    AOpen also made the first AMD based Mini-ITX motherboard, the MCP68PVNt-HD, it supports HDMI and HDCP for home theater PC systems and comes with the MCP68PVNT chipset for AMD Athlon 64 X2, Athlon 64, and Sempron CPU with AM2 socket. The MCP68PVNT supports DirectX 9 and the H.264 hardware decoding to decreases the CPU load when playing HD content. AOpen nMCP68PVNt-HD has a HDMI port that support 480P, 720P and 1080P high-definition video and audio with HDCP.
