The A55-ITX WiFi B and its AMD A55 chipset resume the main features of the A75-ITX WiFi B, apart from the number of Gigabit Ethernet connectors (one in the case of the A55-ITX WiFi B) and the number of USB 3.0 ports (only 2) and USB 2.0 (8 for the motherboard based on chipset A55). The A55-ITX WiFi B does also support the SATA 3 Gbps.

Finally, note the presence of VGA, DVI and HDMI video outputs on both motherboards.

As far as prices, count with $99 for the A55-ITX WiFi B against $129 for the A75-ITX WiFi B. Remains to know their availability date.
