    ASUS unveiled its first socket FM1 motherboard in the mini-ITX form-factor, catering to the premium HTPC and small form-factor (SFF) markets. Like with similar mini-ITX boards, the F1A75-I Deluxe crams in all the connectivity features it can on its tiny PCB, outdoing even large ATX boards. It is based on the AMD A75 chipset. The FM1 socket supports AMD's A-Series "Llano" APUs, and is powered by a 4+1 phase VRM. It is wired to two full-length DDR3 DIMM slots, supporting dual-channel DDR3-1866 MHz memory. The board draws power from standard 24-pin ATX with 4-pin CPU power.

    The lone expansion slot is a PCI-Express 2.0 x16, letting you plug in just about any PCIe addon card. Storage connectivity includes four SATA 6 Gb/s ports with RAID support, and one eSATA 6 Gb/s. Other connectivity features include 6-channel HD audio with optical SPDIF (our only gripe), four USB 3.0 ports (two on the rear panel, two by header), WiFi b/g/n, gigabit Ethernet, Bluetooth, and a number of USB 2.0 ports. Display connectivity includes one each of DVI, HDMI 1.4a, and DisplayPort 1.2. The HDMI 1.4a output includes 8-channel HD audio of the GPU, so the 6 analog audio channels is sort of compensated. The board features ASUS TPU performance control chip, EPU energy-efficiency chip, and a UEFI firmware with ASUS EZ-mode GUI setup program. There's no word on pricing.

    Pricing and street date. Two important pieces of information that are missing. Oh well, it'll be here in due time :p

    Nice motherboard... :cool:

    I always imagined APUs to be used in miniTX systems - they are kind of build for each other... :D

    Yep, looks like a winner to me. Now if only the price isn't exorbitantly high ...

    Nice. Since pretty decent GPU is already integrated, this will be a perfect litle thingie. Just stick a low profile cooler on it and you're ready. Tiny, cute and powerful boxes. Whatb else could you ask for. :D

    I like it. Fits my plans for a mini-PC, using a Lian-Li case, perfectly.

    I wish more vendors start thinking the same, this motherboard is killer.

    In my case I'm thinking Llano for desktop (full ATX) to replace my Phenom 9550+onboard nvidia 8200 which work fine for me but I'm just too close to the edge of its performance limits. I want to have more room on both areas without spending a lot of money and without breaking the 95~100 watts barrier. I think Llano fits in here.

    My computer also works as camera surveillance recorder so I get a big extra with the low power on idle 24/7

    Excellent, I really want to get one of these with the overclock-able 3870 APU coming out next quarter. Ram, motherboard case/with psu and APU should be under $400!
