    This would lend weight to the theory that ITX manufacturers are bypassing P68 altogether.

    kind of makes sense given that mini-ITX is a small niche relative to ATX. In similar news µATX is getting a little more love wiith Z68 :)

    Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z has been confirmed and referenced in a couple of of news stories. Not details at all, but it will probably be at Computex. No doubt the Asus will be a great board, but I imagine the price will be excessive. Also there are details and previews of the Gigabyte GA-Z68MX-UD2H-B3. This already looks extremely promising, and a perhaps a better cost/feature compromise v. the Gene-Z.

    It's all good news for SFF builders.

    Google "Zotac Z68ITX-A-E".

    You can thank me later.

    For those who are too lazy to google it here is a photo that may interest you.

    Price seems a bit steep, 20000 Yen is about £150.

    A little expensive, but all the previous boards from Zotac and Asus supplied with WiFi were about this sort of price range, so it's not fully unexpected.

    Yeah I nabbed that pic off the forums there. I think someone said that Gigabyte confirmed in a email that Z68 ITX will be coming but they didnt say when. I hope its soon.

    £150 - hmmm! If it is that, I'd have to think long and hard about whether or not to stick with the H67!
