The MI990 Mini-ITX motherboard is based on the new 6th Gen Intel® Core™ processor family (codename Skylake) manufactured on Intel's 14 nm manufacturing process. It offers accelerated processing performance and leading-edge graphics capability to simultaneously drive up to three independent displays with clear, crisp visuals without a discrete graphics card. With outstanding features that include up to 32GB of fast DDR4 DRAM memory in two SO-DIMM sockets, it is designed for high-end applications in industrial automation, kiosk, digital signage, medical and gaming markets.

MI990 integrates the Intel CM236 / HM170 chipset to deliver performance and to accommodate current I/O technologies for fast connectivity including 4x USB 2.0, 6x USB 3.0, 6x serial ports and 2x/4x SATA III, as well as flexible expansion with 1x PCI-E(x16), 2x Mini PCI-E and 1x M.2 slots. The board supports two Gigabit Ethernet ports and other advanced features, such as iAMT (11.0) for remote management and repair of systems, TPM (2.0) for improved systems integrity, vPro and IBASE’s owned iSMART (3.0) that enables energy-efficient systems with various power-saving functions.

There are four MI990 models available in MI990VF and MI990EF series with support for Intel CM236 and HM170 chipsets respectively. The four integrated processors list includes Intel Xeon E3-1505M v5, Intel Core i7-6820EQ, Intel Core i5-6440EQ and Intel Core i3-6100E.
