Videocardz managed to snag several photos of an upcoming AMD X470-based motherboard from ASRock. Specifically, the ASRock X470 Fatal1ty Gaming ITX/ac is a Mini ITX board ready for AMD's Ryzen 2000 and other AM4 processors. Powered by a 24-pin ATX and 8-pin EPS power connectors, the Mini ITX board uses an eight phase (6+2) power phase cooled by a black heatsink that is a bit larger than the red affair on the previous generation X370 Fatal1ty motherboard.

The AM4 socket sits at the center of the board and is paired with two DDR4 DIMM slots, one PCI-E 3.0 x16 slot, and four SATA 6 Gbps ports. There is also a single PCI-E x4 M.2 slot on the back of the motherboard for your NVMe solid state drives. The motherboard further features built-in 802.11ac 2x2 Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, and (likely Realtek) Gigabit Ethernet for networking and 8-channel Realtek codec audio enhanced with Nichicon capacitors.

Rear I/O is difficult to ascertain by the photos, but it appears that the X470 Fatal1ty Gaming ITX/ac includes a Fatal1ty mouse port, two USB 2.0 ports, four USB 3.1 ports (including one Type-C), one HDMI, one DisplayPort, one Gigabit Ethernet, six audio outputs (one optical, five analog), and two Wi-Fi antenna connectors.

AMD's "Zen+" Ryzen 2000 series CPUs are not quite out yet, but will be soon enough along with the new 400-series chipsets. No word on how much this Mini ITX motherboard will cost, but I am glad that SFF options are coming at launch with the updated chipsets that are said to be lower power and optimized for Zen+. We will have to wait a bit for reviews to see how well it overclocks and what the pricing works out to.

Just give me Micro-ATX. I am sick of not being able to have 6 SATA drives and an M.2.

Not that I'm bitter or anything.

I'm very bitter and these Motherboard makers should be required to provide the specific MB's schematics to any prospective customer. And it should be against the law for any website to slap their crappy wartermarks across any image/graphics that the website did not Image or Create directly. So If the Motherboard's maker/marketing department is the one that created the image then no website should be allowed to paste their crappy watermark on that content.

I'm one bitter old punter but the entre online enthusiast Press are little more than Marketing Extentions mostly and are more than a little disingenuous with their claims of Objectivity and Impartiality, VideoCardz and other websites included.

You Damn Enthusiast Website narcissists and your F-ing watermarks, even on images/content that you did not directly create!

Now get off of my finely sculpted bermuda grass you corporate marketing tools!

[Raises the tip of his walking cane towards the sky and proceeds to gesticulate using that real banboo classic(just look at the fine patina on that). Also notice the 1950's era cabana wear shorts and shirt that the old codger is wearing and those long black socks with those old man sock garters, and even his lofers are bamboo cabana classics! That's a real angry old man groove that he's got going there while he rattles on incessantly!]
