Chinese motherboard maker Maxsun has released a desktop variant of Intel’s Tiger Lake-H processors. Featuring the Core i7-11800H processor (soldered) and a six-phase VRM, the motherboard is on par with most budget boards. It comes with dual memory DIMMs and a PCIe x16 expansion slot for discrete graphics cards. In addition to this, it also features two M.2 slots for high-speed NVMe storage and three SATA III ports.
The Core i7-11800H consists of eight cores and sixteen threads, with a boost clock of 4.6GHz. It packs 24MB of L3 cache and is paired with an HM570 board. The board is an M-ATX offering with dimensions of 245*190mm. The two memory DIMMs allow for a dual-channel DDR4 memory configuration, with speeds of over 2,933MHz.
As for the I/O options, the chipset features DP 1.4b (embedded), HDMI 2.0, Thunderbolt 4, and an impressive PCIe Gen 4.0 x20 lanes. Sixteen of these are used for the discrete GPU while the rest are split between the M.2 slots.
There are a total of five USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports, four 2.0 ports, and a single Type C port. There are a total of four external VGA ports: x2 HDMI 2.0 and 2 DP 1.4. Finally, there’s one 2.5G Ethernet connector as well. At the moment, this unique board is on sale for Chinese retailer JD.com, and it’s unlikely that we’ll see it outside of Asia-Pacific.
