Here is a System Diagram for the G8 Microserver from the product planning stage. It differs from what we now know we will get, but the basics are there.
It seems like there will only be one SATA port based on the Beta Units and also the images and documentation coming from HP now, where this slide suggests it will have two. I am almost certain that the chipset will actually support two SATA ports, just that there is only one on these models. We may see a second port on an ‘updated’ model with faster CPUs just like the G7 models – and there is possibly a quadcore CPU on the horizon.
Missing from this slide is the Micro SDcard on the motherboard. Also the iLO ‘option’ in the red square on the bottom right-hand side is now confirmed as standard and not an option module.
