Gigabyte H55N-USB3 Mini-ITX Motherboard
Jul 16 2010We've had great success with Intel's H55 chipset, and I was surprised to read that this is Gigabyte's FIRST venture into a Mini-ITX motherboard! Pretty shocking for such a huge motherboard manufacturer.
GIGABYTE has grown a lot in the market lately. They mainly produce top-notch quality motherboards and GPUs, and they have even entered new areas as well. We couldn't say they had a specific motherboard for each user until they finally released their Mini-ITX H55N-USB3 motherboard. Last year, Mini-ITX motherboards meant low CPU-performance. But in 2010, things have changed and now you can build a very small PC with great performance and good efficiency. Benchmark Reviews tests the GIGABYTE H55N-USB3 motherboard paired with an Intel Core i3 530 processor and 4GB of RAM to check which kind of performance we can expect from a Mini-ITX HTPC system like this one.
