The MI980 Mini-ITX supports the 4th Generation Intel® Core™ i7/i5 processors. This motherboard is based on the mobile Intel® QM87 and HM86 Express chipsets that offer an increase in graphics and CPU performance over previous generations. The new board design was developed primarily for the industrial and embedded markets that require high processing capability, but at the same time are constrained by power limits. 

The MI980 is equipped with two standard voltage or low-voltage DDR3 SO-DIMM sockets supporting up to 16GB of system memory. Video connections include DVI-I, DVI-D, LVDS/eDP and DisplayPort. To accommodate expansion cards, it also comes with one PCI Express x16 and two Mini PCI Express x1 slots (one for mSATA). Standard to this 170mm x 170mm platform are 6x USB 2.0, 4x USB 3.0, 6x COM (jumperless selection), 4x SATA III, 2x SATA II with the latest Intel-based dual Gigabit LAN support, which allow comprehensive peripheral and networking features. The MI980VF is also available with advanced capabilities such as Intel® Active Management Technology 9.0, Trusted Platform Module 1.2, RAID and state-of-the-art Intel® vPro™ technology.
