Intel Announces 5x5 Motherboard Form Factor

Posted: 03:07PM

Intel has announced a new motherboard form factor that has a smaller footprint than mini-ITX, granting it the honor of "smallest socketed board standard at 5.5 x 5.8 inches / 140 x 147 mm." The new board is larger than the Intel NUC but makes up for that with some features not found in the smaller offering. The 5x5 board accepts LGA based CPUs while the NUC is equipped with a BGA processor soldered to the board. The new boards also have support for two SODIMM memory sticks, 2.5" or M.2 storage, and wired or wireless networking. The board won't be able to completely replace larger boards as the 5x5 doesn't have PCI or PCI-E slots.
