ASRock launched the X300TM-ITX motherboard

ASRock launched the X300TM-ITX motherboard, which is an APU for AMD that uses AM4 sockets, including Renoir, Picasso, and Raven Ridge, and supports TDP up to 65W. For many users who like mini consoles, this type of motherboard is very popular. Although it is a motherboard that supports APU, it needs to use Intel’s CPU cooler. At the same time, there is no PCIe expansion slot on the motherboard, so ordinary Ryzen series CPUs cannot be used directly.

X300TM-ITX provides dual SO-DIMM memory slots, up to 64GB dual-channel DDR4 notebook computer memory. In terms of storage, the motherboard provides an M.2 slot, supports PCIe Gen3 x4 or SATA mode, and is an automatic switching hardware circuit design, without manually adjusting to switch. In addition, it also provides a SATA3 6.0 Gb and supports NCQ, AHCI, and hot plug. There is also an M.2 Key E interface on the motherboard, which is convenient for users to carry the 2230 specification WiFi / BT PCIe WiFi module.
In terms of the input and output of the backplane, a USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-C interface is provided, allowing users to quickly charge their own devices. In addition, there are three USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A interfaces and a Gigabit network card interface, a COM port, and audio and microphone interfaces. In addition, there is a power input interface, compatible with a 19V power adapter, which greatly facilitates users to build ultra-mini hosts. It is worth mentioning that X300TM-ITX not only provides two HDMI interfaces, not only realizes 4K@60Hz output but also supports HDMI 2.1 and HDCP 2.3. Of course, this depends on whether the APU onboard supports. There is also an LVDS interface on the motherboard, which can achieve up to three display outputs.

X300TM-ITX is compatible with Mini ITX and some Thin Mini-ITX small cases on the market, and users can flexibly create their own mini host.
