Axiomtek's MANO873 Mini ITX motherboard based on the Intel Q77 Express chipset is designed for the 3rd Generation Intel Core i7/i5/i3 processors in the LGA1155 socket. The high-performance MANO873 supports Intel 3-D transistor, Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology, Intel Hyper-Threading technology, 16 GB DDR3 1333/1600 system memory, and PCI Express 3.0 x16 slot. It also supports Intel Active Management Technology 8.0, Intel Small Business Advantage solution, Intel Smart Response Technology, Intel Rapid Storage Technology, Intel vPro, Trusted Platform Module 1.2, and SATA RAID for various mission critical applications.

In addition, the Intel HD Graphics 4000/2500 engine with DirectX 11 support is built into the chipset to provide fast graphics performance. With all the innovative features, the MANO873 is ideal for high-end industrial applications, such as storage server, POS, kiosk, medical, gaming, digital signage, and surveillance security monitoring.



"Our new MANO873 supporting Intel Q77 Express chipset and using 3rd Generation Intel Core processor family offers maximum security and manageability features. Similar to typical Mini ITX motherboards, the MANO873 offers rich I/O including two COM ports, four USB 2.0, four USB 3.0, two Gigabit LANs, DVI-D, and VGA for system integrators in need of numerous and flexible interfaces. Its four SATA connectors allow storage requirements to be met with ease. Users also can increase board functionality with PCIe 3.0 x16 slot and PCI Express Mini Card slot," said David Chiu, PM of Product Planning Division at Axiomtek.

To ensure reliable operation, the MANO873 motherboard supports watchdog timer and hardware monitoring features. This embedded board also meets all requirements for the Windows 7 OS. The varied I/O features include four USB 3.0 (including independent discrete USB 3.0 Renesas uPD720202 chip that can operate under WinXP while two USB 3.0 are from Renesas uPD720202 and two USB 3.0 are from PCH), four USB 2.0, two COM (one RS-232/422/485 & one RS-232), two SATA-600 with RAID 0, 1, two SATA-300 (one with SATADOM supported), two Gigabit Ethernet, DVI-D, VGA, digital I/O (4 channel IN and 4 channel OUT), HD audio, PCI 3.0 x16, and PCI Express Mini Card.

Weird choices

Ok ? Two COM ports (really old legacy), two Ethernet ports, just two audio input/output, SO-DIMS (actually I like that), this is definitely not a motherboard made for gaming (but it can be used as such) but more for storage server, POS, kiosk, medical, digital signage, surveillance security monitoring like they said. And the components of the motherboard doesn't look like high quality also.

Axiomtek's target market is the industrial computer and embedded field. It is not the consumer market; where the trend is to push and remove legacy connections or features.

The industrial/embedded market is very conservative in its approach to computing. Its primarily about producing something for as long as possible. (Often a good couple of years after the consumer market has long declared certain things obsolete.)

Axiomtech has some stuff I am totally interested in, but can probably never get because of what aussiebear is saying. There are almost no nanoITX stuff on the consumer market. :(

I couldn't have said it better, I was like "Gaming? Really?". Might get a couple fish with that bait but I doubt it.

They do of course mean gaming as in gambling machines, not as in Crysis.
