Intel’s Take on Sandy Bridge Mini-ITX: DH67CF

With just days left until official announcements at CES 2011, it look like the details of Intel’s take on Sandy Bridge mini-ITX motherboards has popped up on a few German sites. Known as the Intel DH67CF, the board appears to have all the basics covered. The one oddity being reported concerns the RAM support on the board.

The DH67CF provides two DDR3 slots for 240-pin modules at up to 1333 MHz. The specs released so far claim a maximum capacity of 16 GB, double what we’ve come to expect from other mini-ITX boards. We’ll have to wait until the official release or a review model to confirm this detail.

The rest of the DH67CF’s feature set is pretty standard. No WiFi, but DisplayPort has been included, along with DVI and HDMI. Drive connectivity is handled by two each of SATA 3Gbps and SATA 6Gbps as well as an external SATA port. USB 3.0 support is included with two rear panel connectors along with four USB 2.0 ports. The board includes three internal USB 2.0 headers; it’s unclear whether the Intel DH67CF offers support for front USB 3.0. Connections for HD audio and an optical SPDIF port round out the rear panel.

As always, we’ll keep you updated as the DH67CF approaches its official launch.
