    Gigabyte Technology is currently putting the finishing touches on two new mini-ITX motherboards powered by the Intel NM70 chipset, the GA-C807N (equipped with a 1.5 GHz Celeron 807 single-core processor) and the GA-C847N (coming with a 1.1 GHz Celeron 847 dual-core CPU). The boards have an Ultra Durable 4 Classic design and feature two DDR3-1333 memory slots, three (GA-C847N) or four (GA-C807N) SATA ports (one is SATA 6.0 Gbps), one PCI slot, Gigabit Ethernet (dual Gigabit for the GA-C847N), UEFI DualBIOS, and 5.1-channel audio.

    The GA-C807N also packs a D-Sub output, while the GA-C847N has D-Sub and HDMI connectors, and an eSATA port. The boards' prices have not been revealed.

    I'm still praying FM2 will gain mini-itx possibilities...

    Fail--the BIOSTAR has PCIe, which is far more useful. Otherwise solid I guess...

    I really like the dual core version, on par with the e350 gpu wise but blows it out of the water in the cpu department. Price will make all the difference though, I'd really like to upgrade my e350 machine :)

    Is it actually that good of a gpu? Also the dual celeron is 1.1ghz vs the 1.6 on the e350. I haven't seen any benches but I'd guess the cpu portion is quite similar performance wise. Just a guess though.

    It bothers me a little that neither board has heatsinks on the vrms for the cpu power

    those seem to be the first to go in an overclocked system... it happened with my amd build a couple years ago, and it happened to my friends i5 build. both didn't have a heatsink. so now i'm pretty picky about having some sort of heatsink on those lol.

    Well the GPU is HD2000 based but clocked a little lower than the usual HD2000.
    The CPU is faster than an E-350:
    http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu_lookup.php?cpu=Intel Celeron 847 @ 1.10GHz
    This is PassMark which doesn't stress the OoO engine that much so in real life the difference should be even bigger.

    This CPU originally launched for $134 (2Q11). I wonder if they have dropped in price for Gigabyte to release this.
