ASUS is first to announce a GeForce 8300 ATX mainboard. The ASUS M3N-H/HDMI based on the GeForce 8300 should have a higher clock speed for it's integrated graphics core and is able to run slightly faster than the AMD 780G.
The board features a a PS/2 port for the keyboard, six USB 2.0 ports, a HDMI connector, a Gigabit Ethernet port, a FireWire port and 7.1-channel analog audio jacks with a separate coaxial S/PDIF out. It also has headers for another six USB 2.0 ports and one additional FireWire port, six SATA connectors and, oddly enough, a connector on the middle of the board for a cable which is connected to a rear bracket with a D-sub connector on it.
