ASUS Intros Prime H310T Motherboard

ASUS rolled out the Prime H310T, one of the rare few thin mini-ITX motherboards based on Intel 300-series chipset, a boon for certain SFF cases such as the Akasa Euler series, or DIY all-in-one PC upgrades. Based on Intel H310 chipset, the board supports 8th generation Intel "Coffee Lake" processors (including 95W TDP chips). It draws power from 2-pin (12V DC in), and conditions it for the LGA1151 processor using a simple 3+1 phase VRM. The CPU socket is wired to two DDR4 SO-DIMM slots, which support up to 32 GB of dual-channel DDR4-2666 memory.

Storage connectivity includes a 32 Gbps M.2-2280 slot, and two SATA 6 Gbps ports. The only other expansion slot is an M.2 slot for WLAN modules. Display outputs include LVDS (useful in AIOs), DisplayPort, and HDMI. USB connectivity includes four 5 Gbps USB 3.1 gen 1 ports. 2-channel HD audio and gigabit Ethernet make for the rest of it.

Why bother when this occurred.

'cause it was a pure speculation. The original Digitimes article states that the supply of H310 was suspended until July (not discontinued).

Here's the original source:

All it talks about is that Intel's manufacturing capacity is not able to satisfy demand, so they have to balance-out the production by slowing down one product and making a bit more of another.

I used to complain a lot about the sensationalist news appearing more frequently on TPU, but now I'm just ignoring it.

P.S. Always wanted to get one of those thin ITX boards. Perfect for DIY All-in-One, cause there is an LVDS output ready to go.

ASUS should make it more... pleasing to the eyes unless there are folks who won't mind about the colour... implementing an LVDS for custom-made AIO PCs & having an M.2 slot for M.2 SSD is a good choice.

Are those SO-DIMM slots that I see there?

Why? Why would they do such a stupid thing? It's a desktop board for God's sake!

It is pretty common in these small form factor boards. Especially in these low profile boards, where the RAM has to lay flat on the board, because normal RAM would stick up too high.

But aren't SO-DIMM memory modules not the fastest stuff on the planet?

that doesn't mean they're slow. Supporting 2666 is more than enough for it.

Why wouldn't they? Less heat, smaller footprint, perfect for SFF systems.
Almost all All-in-Ones and pre-built SFF PCs use SO-DIMMs.
Remember, it's a thin mini-ITX, and it's a mainstream board. No one wants or needs full-size SDRAM modules with heatsinks in them.
