The IL-80MV features both 15-pin analog and HDMI output
The ultimate small form factor dream is finally realized

We just got word from Universal Abit that the company is on its way to unveil the first HDMI certified motherboard.  The motherboard, dubbed Abit IL-80MV, is a 945GT motherboard designed specifically for Yonah (and eventually Merom).

The motherboard features a 667MHz front side bus and the ICH7m-DH southbridge.  A Core 2 Duo (Merom) processor is capable of taking advantage of the full DDR2 533MHz bus as well.  Firewire, dual SATA 3.0Gbps interfaces and optical HDA input/outputs are all standard on the IL-80MV.  Of course, the news shocker is that this motherboard features 15-pin D-sub analog and HDMI video out.  With the AACS decoder, the HDMI output will support HDCP signals -- making it perfect for a Vista-compatible display or a high definition TV.

Most non-HTPC features have been removed on this motherboard, such as a PEG interface.  The motherboard does feature a single PCIe x1 lane device, which might make sense for an HDTV Wonder or WiFi adaptor.  The final board revision will feature a special OTES cooling solution that is not featured in the preliminary photos we have so far.

Universal Abit employees tell us the motherboard is in the final phases of getting AACS certification from Silicon Image.  The board is expected to enter into mass production this June, with retail availability that same month.  A price for the motherboard has not been set yet, but it is expected to retail on the lower end of 945GT motherboards since most features, like a PCIe x16 adaptor, are not present.
