Continuing their trend as new capable platforms are released, Zotac has announced their latest addition to their lineup of mini-ITX motherboards, the H55-ITX WiFi.  Based on Intel's H55 chipset, the H55-ITX supports the latest LGA1156 Core i3, i5, and i7 processors to bring power previously unseen to the mini-ITX platform.

“Since Intel® announced its latest generation of Nehalem CPUs, there’s been great demand for a mini-ITX platform for the CPUs, unfortunately the power consumption and heat output of the original Intel® Core™ i7 900 series would’ve been too high for such a small form factor,” said Carsten Berger, marketing director, ZOTAC International (MCO), Ltd. “With the latest generation of Intel® Core™ i3, Core™ i5 and Core™ i7 processors, greater energy efficiency and improved thermal management, the ZOTAC H55-ITX WiFi is able to deliver a mini-ITX platform capable of accommodating the new high-performance processors with no compromises.“

While clearly intended primarily for use with the recently released Clarksdale processors and their integrated GPU with Intel ClearVideoHD technologies, the board does feature a PCIe x16 2.0 expansion slot for those who feel the need to take advantage of a discrete graphics card.  Paired with the onboard audio capable of transmitting Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio tracks as well as the built-in WiFi capabilities, the H55-ITX WiFi provides a powerful option for a home theater PC in a small form factor.

Other features include six SATA 3.0 ports, one eSATA 3.0 port, and ten USB 2.0 ports.  Video output for a CPU-integrated GPU is provided by a dual-link DVI port or HDMI port.
