While browsing Gigabyte's site today and checking out what they have listed for their AM3+ lineup, I notice almost half-a-dozen new 900-series (990FX & 990X) motherboards mixed in with the refreshed 700/800-series AM3+ models. Likely done for a reason, to gain ground with us tech enthusiast as ASUS and MSI have, they went about this with seemingly no official Press Release. All I can figure is that once Computex 2011 kicks off in a few days and the boards all get officially released, then we'll see an official PR on them. However, I for one will not complain and take what I can get! Pop on in to get the skinny on board specs and pictures. UPDATE: The official Press Release is out today (5-31), as predicted!

ASUS P8H67-I DeluxeToday's contender for the mini-ITX crown is the ASUS P8H67-I Deluxe. Being based on the H67 the chances of extreme overclocking are nil, but for use in a HTPC build it offers all (and I mean ALL) the features one would want in such a motherboard. Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and a multitude of video connections are just a few of what this new motherboard has to offer.
