Gigabyte F2A85XN-WIFI Mini-ITX Motherboard Review

Rating: 9.0.


Today we are going to take a look at the Gigabyte F2A85XN-WIFI, a mid-range mini-ITX motherboard, aimed at those who are looking to build a basic compact gaming system or a compact media centre PC.

The Gigabyte F2A85XN-WIFI features the AMD A85X chipset and supports all of the latest ‘Richland’ APUs, as well as the previous generation models. Despite the compact dimensions of the mini-ITX form factor, Gigabyte has managed to achieve an impressive specification for this model which includes on-board Wi-Fi and even dual HDMI ports.

While we never expect to achieve massive overclocks on mini-ITX motherboards due to the generally less beefy power regulation circuitry, we are excited to see if we can squeeze a few extra MHz out of the 6800K in our tests.
