Asus Pro H610T ITX DDR4 SO-DIMM Motherboard Hits Retail This Week

Posted on


The Asus Pro H610T D4-CSM motherboard is set for release in the US on Friday. This H610-based motherboard mixes a desktop Alder Lake socket (LGA1700) with twin compact SO-DIMM slots and is powered by an external 19V DC power brick via a barrel jack on the rear I/O panel. By all accounts, it might be a good choice for a compact build or an AiO upgrade.

Asus ITX motherboards typically feature a chipset + ‘I’ suffix, but this one is a ‘T’ as it is classified as a Mini ITX Thin design. To keep any system you build using this motherboard suitably thin, definitely opt for a low-profile CPU cooler. Like in a laptop, the SO-DIMM slots are populated by adding the memory modules at an angle and clicking them into place as you lay them down flat. Thus you can add up to the max 64GB of DDR4-3200 memory without any vertical protrusions. There are no expansion slots to populate with add-in-cards. Asus says this ITX board is the standard 6.7-inches (17cm) square but doesn’t provide any info about the height.

This is an Alder Lake board with a six-phase digital VRM, and you are limited to desktop processors with a max TDP of 65W, which seems sensible given the design and envisioned purpose by Asus.

We have mentioned the processor, memory, and (lack of) expansion slots, and as a diminutive motherboard, there aren’t many other onboard expansion options. The Asus Pro H610T ITX only offers two SATA 6.0 Gb/s ports and one M.2 slot (type 2260/2280, supporting PCIe 4.0 x4 & SATA modes). However, the back panel is a bit better, with its two USB 3.2 Gen2 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, DisplayPort, HDMI port, 1Gb Ethernet jack, twin audio jacks, and the 19V barrel jack. You also have headers to attach up to seven other USB ports, two of which can be USB 3.2 Gen1.
