New ZOTAC ION ITX-F series
Building on the success of their popular ION ITX series of motherboards, Zotac have introduced the high end ION ITX-F Series. They claim it "increases expansion capabilities" with a PCI express x16 slot.
"ZOTAC always listens to user requests for features. End users loved our ION ITX series motherboards, but some requested PCI Express expansion. We listened and thus the ZOTAC ION ITX F series was born,” said Carsten Berger, marketing director, ZOTAC International. “Our engineers managed to integrate PCI Express x16 expansion without sacrificing any of the award-winning features either.”
The board still feature's Intel's Atom 330 1.6GHz dual core processor and Nvidia's ION GPU, meaning it is still easily capable of outputting high definition content through it's onboard HDMI and DVI outputs. As Berger says, none of the existing features have been lost, still supports up to 4GB of DDR2 800Mhz RAM, 3 SATA ports, an eSATA port, 10 USB ports, 6 Channel audio and integrated 802.11n WiFi.
The ITX-F series now provides the ultimate base for a high powered, low power, small footprint system without sacrificing the connectivity of larger or more expensive options.
