Contributor(s): Stan Gibilisco

Mini-ITX 2.0 is a motherboard designed for use in small form factor personal computers (PCs). The physical boards measure 6.7 inches (17 centimeters) square.

Mini-ITX 2.0 was designed to support the graphics, high definition (HD) video and other rich media processing typical of personal computing. The board offers expandability and flexibility for use in a variety of environments. Because of its low power consumption, the Mini-ITX can usually employ passive cooling, eliminating problems that can occur with fan noise in home entertainment settings. 

Mini-ITX 2.0 features include:

  • Support for low-power x86 microprocessors.
  • Support for most recent versions of Windows.
  • Support for most flavors of Linux.
  • Support for up to 2 GB (gigabytes) of RAM (random access memory).
  • One PCI (Peripheral Component Interconnect) Express 16-lane expansion slot.
  • Two Serial ATA (Advanced Technology Attachment) II slots.
  • One IDE (Integrated Drive Electronics) parallel ATA slot.
  • Minimum four USB (Universal Serial Bus) 2.0 ports.
  • One port for 1-Gbps (billions of bits per second) LAN (local area network).
  • Three two-channel audio jacks.
  • One VGA (Video Graphics Array) port for LCD (liquid crystal display).
  • HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) port with add-on card.
  • DirectX 9.0 integrated graphics.
