ZOTAC Ships GeForce 9300-ITX WiFi SFF Board

Blink twice, and chances are you've missed something in the whirlwind world of graphics. For instance, ZOTAC's Mini-ITX GeForce 8200-ITX WiFi was just pushed out around three months ago. Today, the same company is announcing that its GeForce 9300-ITX WiFi board is shipping to retailers and distributors worldwide. So much for staying on the cutting edge, huh?

In order to make the lives of SFF builders that much easier, ZOTAC is delivering a mini-ITX platform that comes pre-loaded with NVIDIA's GeForce 9300 CPU. The board is CUDA-ready and supports socket LGA775 Intel processors. The GPU itself includes 16 stream processors along with compatibility with DirectX 10, OpenGL 2.1 and NVIDIA CUDA based 3D games and applications. Better still, there's a PCI Express 2.0 x16 slot included in case you'd like to pop another graphics card in and take advantage of NVIDIA's
Hybrid SLI technology.



In addition to that, users will find integrated 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, and the PureVideo HD technology -- which decodes Blu-ray and other high-definition video formats using the graphics processor -- makes this ideal for small home theater PCs. There's no mention of a price tag, but you can feast your eyes on the complete specifications below.

This a Core2Duo and a galaxy low profile 9600gt would make a awesome little HTPC.

Is the 9600GT really required? I think the 9300M can decode HD video on its own pretty well, or am I confusing that with the 9400M?

[quote user="Jeremy"]Is the 9600GT really required?[/quote]Required... no, but a perk... yes. The addition of a discreet gpu like the 9600 would allow for some healthy gaming.

It's definitely a decent board -- if I didn't already have a SFF PC for my HTPC I would probably think on this.

My only drawback I see is that this board only has 2 onboard SATA ports...I'd want something with 4 (its what I have now and I would never go any other way)

Yeah that really only leaves a hard drive and a DVD drive. I got to be honest I am kinda lusting after this thing though.

It does have an x16 slot...you could find a x16 SATA controller? lol

Not what I would put in the x16 slot, but if you want a nice home server that would be a great solution.
