"Fortunately, Gigabyte has more than one Mini-ITX motherboard in the works for Sandy Bridge. A P67-based model is on the way that will drop the display outputs in favor of CPU overclocking support. Naturally, you'll need to run a discrete graphics card with that particular model. We don't have much in the way of additional details on the P67 offering, but the H67 version should be ready by the end of the month."

The one pictured was the H67 board. Awesome news if true. Hopefully, they'll place the CPU socket away from the PCIe slot this time. Pretty sure they've received a lot of complaints about that already.

Saw that previously. I'm waiting on a "good" mobo for my SG-07 Build. Already have my 2600-K waiting.

The H55 had the same placement, which was unfortunate. I bet the P67 will be the same.

In other news, why is it that all the ITX boards out are h67 so far? I don't imagine p67 takes any additional board spacing/ routing skills.

Because most people buying Mini-ITX will probably actually make use of the integrated GPU on Sandy Bridge for HTPC, really small desktops, etc. In those cases, the S models may even be preferable. There's a demand for high-performance SFF but I reckon that's a smaller slice of the pie.

Another issue with M-ITX is power. Overclocking requires better power delivery. As far as I'm aware, the GA-H55N-USB3 only has 4+2 phase power. Most other M-ITX boards only come with 3-phase. As it is, on the H55N-USB3, you almost give up overclocking if you go quad. Sure, you can still overclock but it'll be very limited.

I still have my fingers crossed that we'll get Z68 Mini-ITX.

It's a problem with perception. Same reason why the majority of micro ATX boards have IGP while the majority of ATX boards do not.

fyi i emailed gigabyte regarding info on the new p67 itx board and this is the response they gave me.

Answer : Dear Customer,

We have announced the new product, but no release date was set. My best guess would be sometime in Feb/Mar.

Thank you for choosing Gigabyte products
