Gigabyte has revealed not one, but two socket AM1 motherboards, both which are remarkably similar to each other, and both narrow Micro-ATX boards.

The motherboards, known as the AM1M-S2H and the AM1M-S2P, both feature the AMD FM1 socket, which has support for AMD’s A-Series APUs as well as E-Series APUs. They will also have support for some of the upcoming Athlon and Sempron CPUs.


Both of the motherboards have two DDR3 memory slots, a single PCIe 2.0 x16 slot, as well as two SATA ports. The AM1M-S2H has two PCIe 1x slots, while the AM1M-S2P has a single PCIe x1 slot along with a single legacy PCI slot.

Rear I/O connectivity is also different on both boards. Both feature a pair of PS/2 ports, a VGA port, two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, Gigabit Ethernet and stereo audio. The AM1M-S2H has a single HDMI port, while the AM1M-S2P carries an LPT parallel port as well as a serial port.

Availability is expected soon, with pricing expected to sit around the $50 mark.
