EVGA is targeting the LAN gamers with the Mini ITX Box

EVGA is a brand that was once best known for graphics cards, but that has branched out to include power supply and motherboard lines. However, CES is now looking to branch out into a new sector of the enthusiast market: small form factor machines.
 
EVGA showed off its Mini ITX Box, which supports both traditional air cooling and water cooling. The chassis comes equipped with a 500W power supply, a bay for a vertical mounted slot-loading optical drive, dual USB 3.0 headers up front, and the chassis itself can accommodate full-length graphics cards.
 
The Mini ITX Box is still in the prototype stage, so the design/final details may change between now and when it official launches. We weren't given a confirmed launch date for the Mini ITX Box, but we expect that it will ship in the latter half of 2013.

To add to that, physical sales of Windows in China, the biggest market in the world for PC shipments, is no more. It is digital download only, and again the same goes for numerous games and applications. Who installs applications only from physical media these days? Pointless when download services are fast and super convenient (no physical storage, no keeping track of CD keys, etc etc).

Again, a SFF designed around being as small as possible would benefit from losing technology that has already been shown to be superfluous for many people. Optical is a compromise when trying to reduce size, and if you really need it then just get a normal larger cases.
