Gigabyte unveils its first AMD FusionT Mini-ITX mainboard

Gigabyte has unveiled its very first AMD Fusion mini-ITX mainboard at CES 2011. The small little board is called the GA-E350N-USB3 and is designed to be a SFF HTPC mainboard for media fans looking for performance without taking up lots of space. The board features AMD Fusion technology and supports DirectX 11.

Other features of the board include USB 3.0, SATA 6Gbps and an HDMI interface. The board also has 3X powered USB ports that can charge the iPad faster than a normal USB port. The brains for the board is from the AMD E-350 dual-core processor combined with the Radeon 6310 GPU and HD Blu-ray playback. The board has 7.1 surround sound and a lot more.

The USB 3.0 ports are controlled by an onboard Renasas controller from NEC. The board uses Gigabyte Ultra Durable 3 tech that puts twice the amount of copper on the board as traditional designs for improved efficiency. Pricing for the board is unannounced at this time.
