Hello,

Does anyone know of any Mini ITX motherboards which will be released in the near future to keep an eye out for.

I understand Intel's Sandy Bridge will be out soon, which I presume new boards will be based on.

I also presume that AMD may have a product which may compete against Intel's Sandy Bridge, but I have not heard of any news on such a product.

If you know of any up coming Mni ITX boards, could you please provide a link, and possibly explain the benefit of the board?

I would like to find a board which will have great graphics performance without the need to add a graphics card - ie. Able to insert a CPU with built in GPU or the board may have a integrated GPU chip.

I understand the fastest graphic performer based on current available chipset (Intell based - Arrandale) is the intel i5-661. With Sandy Bridge comming out, I understand the GPU's will me much faster.

I look forward to your replies.

I believe it's "Sandy Bridge", not "Sand Bridge".

I too am looking forward to some new mini-ITX motherboards as the days of me carrying round a suitcase sized case must surely be coming to an end. I have seen previews of both ASUS and Gigabyte's Sandy Bridge initial offerings but without a mini-ITX solution. I believe the future is smaller mobos and I hope there will be a board as good as Gigabyte's H55N-USB3.

I do believe the new Sandy Bridge chips will have much better graphics capabilities. Good enough for current games? I don't know, but hopefully OK for the casual gamer, and for enthusiasts, there may be some squeezing of cards into very small spaces.

ASUS is one of the first to release details on its new Sandy Bridge mini-ITX motherboard. It's the P8H67-I. There is a write up on it here with some of the specs:

The Sandy Bridge processor will handle your graphics issue too. The i5 version has integrated graphics that are on par with a Radeon HD 5450.
