Chinese website Expreview has shared out images of a new micro-ATX motherboard from ZOTAC based on Intel's H67 chipset which could be quite the attraction for budget conscious HTPC / SFF builders.

Dubbed the ZT-H67D3, the board accomodates Core i3/i5/i7 LGA1155 processors and has quite a decent 6-phase VRM power setup going on along with the use of all-solid state caps.

There are four DDR3 DIMM slots resident on the board supporting dual-channel operation. Expansion slots come in the form of a single PCI-E x16 slot, two PCI-E x1 slots and a legacy PCI slot. The board's storage sub-system comprises a couple of SATA 6Gb/s ports, three SATA 3 Gb/s ports and an eSATA 3 Gb/s port.

Flicking around to the rear I/O section, Display connectivity is offered via a DVI, DisplayPort and HDMI port. Oddly there is no D-Sub port on the ZT-H67D3. Rounding out things, the board has 8-channel HD audio and Gigabit ethernet. Unfortunately there isn't a USB 3.0 controller on this board.

On the upside, the board is expected to hit the retail market at just 399 RMB (about US $63).
