Click here to post a comment for Computex 2017: Gigabyte Shows Ryzen Mini ITX motherboard on our message forum
It's nice to see so many options for AMD's new CPUs. Go AMD!!
Yessss....More ITX plz
Yessss....More ITX plzWith you on that! Still waiting for an Asus ROG Strix Z270I competitor though
As someone who has an ITX Ryzen build, it's nice to see more options available. I'm sure Biostar may have slightly increased the price of their board simply due to high demand and being the only option available. However, I'm not upset about the price point I paid ($110). Seeing as I don't need wifi, I don't think I'd have bought this Gigabyte model anyway, but, having the slot for wifi and the extra 4 CPU power pins are a very nice bonus. I decided against getting a 1600 thanks to the 4-pin connector that my board has. I also appreciate that Gigabyte didn't waste time and money looking into the X370.
Id love to see an ITX threadripper, hehe.
Id love to see an ITX threadripper, hehe.That would be an interesting sight. Too bad that's probably physically impossible, let alone impractical.

ASRock might be able to do it, but they'd surely have to go with SODIMMS for RAM.Sure, SODIMMs would make a big difference (though you'd want at least 4x if you wanted to take advantage of the quad-channel memory) but there's also finding a place for power connectors, chipset, M.2 slots, the PCIe slot, and any other 3rd-party chips. A lot of that could be soldered to the back of the board, but even then it would be a very tight squeeze. You'd likely have to make sacrifices to ensure things fit (such as integrated audio, which is a big deal for a desktop ITX build). Even if you hypothetically didn't have to make any sacrifices (compared to an AM4 setup), you're already giving up a huge amount of potential. But, I do still find it interesting to think about. It wouldn't surprise me if a company like Zotac manages to pull it off. To my knowledge, they were the only brand to successfully make an AM3+ ITX board.

Not quite sure about the placement o that 24-pin ATX. Vertically mounted motherboards may have it awkward. Good to see some more ITX'. Waiting for Asus.
Though not directly comparable to this I have the fm2+ version of this still running in my brothers computer and if it's all like that one I would recommend it.
