If you subscribe to the philosophy that big things come in little packages, you'll love hearing about Zotac's new H87-ITX Wi-Fi motherboard, a tiny slice of silicon designed for Intel's 4th Generation Core processor family (Haswell). It's a mini-ITX board for small form factor (SFF) builds, yet is capable of running Intel's newest processors and up to four SATA 6Gbps drives, plus a spot for an mSATA drive.
It has two DDR3 DIMM slots that support up to 16GB of RAM; RAID 0, 1, 0+1, and 5 support; six each of USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports; dual GbE LAN ports; HDMI, DVI, DisplayPort, and VGA (with included adapter) output; onboard 802.11n Wi-Fi + Bluetooth connectivity; and a single PCI Express x16 slot.
Granted, you're not going to take down a dream machine configuration with a system built around this board, but there are plenty of input options to build a highly respectable rig, and even a high-end gamer if you want to go that route. You could, for example, run a pair of 256GB SSDs in RAID 0, flank them with a 4TB hard drive for storage chores, slap in an Intel Core i7 4770K processor, add 16GB of RAM, and shove a high-end GPU into the mix.
No mention of price or when it will be available to purchase.
