    HTPCs, 'entry' or 'light' gaming, probably a couple of interesting options there. It will be a niche product, but I might see myself interested in it too, down the road.

    Or this could be used for budget Mini ITX builds as well.

    Why does the board look like something from a 20 year old machine you found in a basement? lol

    Sounds like a fantastic idea for Steam Machines. Without a discrete PCIe GPU, this saves a lot of physical space.

    It'll cost more, and you lose the GPU if the board goes outside of the warranty period.

    Add an extended warranty, and it isn't too bad.

    Quite interesting I would say.

    Paired with a 6400/6500 or 6600/6700 non k and that GTX 1070 in a cool mITX and you got A BEASTLY mITX gaming machine!

    I don't personally see myself interested but John next door might be for hassle free gaming machine.

    This thing has potential since most mITX/Gaming machines are for laughs.

    Good point on the warranty. 3y would be a minimum imho with optional extension up to 5y.

    Slim tower mITX gaming machines are kind of for laughs. But there are some bulkier mITX cases that are plenty suitable for serious gamers. I intend to do a mITX build for my next gaming rig. But the thing about that is it will be strictly gaming. Most people around here use their gaming PCs for everything else, such as work, internet browsing, or other forms of media. Some people use them as servers. But when you're focusing on strictly gaming, you don't need much. 8GB of RAM, 1TB of storage, a modular PSU, a hefty GPU, and an overclocked quad core CPU is all you really need. All of that can effortlessly fit in a mITX case. These days, discrete sound cards and DVD drives are relatively useless. I don't need wifi, and when you're only focused on gaming you can usually get by with just 4 USB ports.

    If its not following any case/motherboard standard, then its not going to be sold to the public.

    This looks like a Console, or even a series of "Nvidia Shield" like devices, if they wanted to deliver a whole range of them, that is...

    Engineering sample perhaps? that would be my guess.

    although imo it doesnt look *that* bad.

    I'm sure its not meant for any design awards, since it going to probably be installed in closed non user accessible systems. :p

    Remember when DELL & Co used to sell PC's with the graphics chip BGA'd to the motherboard and you couldn't to just put in a nice new Discrete Graphics Card and you had to buy a shiny new DELL system instead :nerd:

    Well this is the new generation of humping the masses :wanker:

    Apparently, you don't remember those days to well yourself. Most of those computers used pretty standard IGP chips. Stuff that was good enough to get you a working display, mooched off your SRAM, and were hardly capable of playing 360p videos in fullscreen. Even for their time, those IGPs were utter garbage. This Colorful board, meanwhile, supports a GTX 1070. That's not low end. I'm not sure it even qualifies as mid-range. It's an exciting idea, because it's a good GPU in a very, very small form factor.

    I'm getting old :p i remember now , that was integrated graphics before intel started putting IGP's into the processors.

    I wonder how much this could reduce the price of small form factor PC's due to them not needing the boards and cooling fans etc...

    I would love to see the cooling solution. If you stick a reference cooler on the CPU you wont be left a great deal of room for aircooling solution on the GPU that completes with FE reference spec. Watercooling AIO?
