Gigabyte GA-B75M-D3V Detailed

Here are the first pictures of the GA-B75M-D3V up close. This micro-ATX form-factor board is designed for business desktops (small-businesses, home-offices), and is based on Intel's B75 chipset. The board supports "Ivy Bridge" and "Sandy Bridge" Core processors in the LGA1155 package. Its component loadout doesn't stretch too far beyond what the chipset offers. The LGA1155 CPU is powered by a simple 5-phase VRM, it is wired to just two DDR3 DIMM slots, supporting dual-channel DDR3 memory.

Expansion slots include one PCI-Express 3.0 x16, two PCI-Express 2.0 x1, and one legacy PCI. Storage connectivity includes two SATA 6 Gb/s, and four SATA 3 Gb/s, all internal. The 6 Gb/s ports are angled. Display connectivity includes one each of DVI and D-Sub. There are four USB 3.0 ports, two on the rear-panel, two via front-panel header, all wired to the PCH. 6-channel HD audio, gigabit Ethernet, Parallel/LPT, and PS/2 combo connector top it all off. Expect the GA-B75M-D3V to be hovering around the $100 mark.

Yeah, small-businesses still use LPT dot-matrix/thermal printers.

Unless they are using a printer sub 2002 then its mostly USB/Ethernet. I had this discussion with our printer rep from RJ Young of Chattanooga TN. He has not see a LPT printer in almost 6 years so unless this business is one that NEVER upgrades printers, then what makes company's think they will upgrade computer hardware?

Interesting point. Though there are some speciality scanners and printers (and other devices) that would take $1000's to replace. This is an option, though pop in a LPT card into a system with the same result.

That said, I haven't personally seen a parallel port in years.
