Motherboard maker DFI will unveil a couple of mini ATX motherboards for gamers, FUD Zilla reports. These motherboards will even support SLI and CrossFire:
DFI has decided to move into what so far is an untapped market, mATX motherboard for gamers. We're not talking high-end products will loads of extra bling, instead the company will be doing mid-range motherboards with support for SLI and CrossFire.

There will be boards for both Intel and AMD CPU's and Intel's upcoming P45 might be the first chipset that we'll see on a mATX board from DFI with the ability to use two graphics cards.

We're definetly looking forward to these new boards and we think they could become very popular with those that attend LAN parties regularly, as it would allow them to have quite a powerful system with them without the bulk and weight normally associated with a decent gaming PC.

We might even see DFI steal some market share away from Shuttle, as the company decided to cancel its new line of XPC's with space for two dual width graphics cards.
