A new motherboard from ASRock has been announced, and it follows the prevalent trend of soldered CPU versions. The company has unveiled a new motherboard known as the N100DC-ITX, which is powered by an Intel N100 processor and comes equipped with a new expansion slot. The setup offers the benefit of very low power utilization, which is an advantage that cannot be overstated. This motherboard comes with a model in the mini-ITX configuration, meaning it is 17 centimetres by 17 centimetres. This model is provided to us by ASRock. As seen, the foundations of connectedness have been reduced to their most essential form.
The only item left is a DDR4 memory slot, which can support data transfer rates of up to 3200 megatransfers per second and can store up to 32 gigabytes of memory. This variation already has a PCI Express 3.0 x4 connector installed for the graphics card when purchased. In terms of the available storage space, we see one M.2 in PCIe 3.0 x2 along with two SATA disks. An M.2 Key E is provided for use in installing a WiFi module. This is the final component of the package. One of the things that distinguishes this board from others is that an Intel N100 processor has been soldered onto it. This is one of the things that sets it different from other boards.
The latter contains four E-cores, each of which can reach 3.4 GHz in turbo mode, but has a thermal design power (TDP) of only 6 watts, making it an extremely efficient processor. In addition to the four USB-A 2.0 connections, the device’s rear panel provides access to a PS2 combo connector, which can be used to attach a keyboard and mouse to the device. We will keep using USBs, but the 3.2 Gen1 standard will contain two more type-A ports than it currently does. In addition, there are visual outputs, including connections for both VGA and HDMI monitors and TVs. Finally, a serial port has been included, as well as Ethernet in the form of Realtek 8111H (1 GbE), and audio in the form of ALC897. Both of these features were previously unavailable.
