ASRock has a new Gemini Lake Refresh-compatible ITX board
ASRock has been showcasing a new ITX board as part of its 2020 line-up. Based on its model number, it may integrate the Intel Pentium Silver J5040, a quad-core Gemini Lake-refresh variant with a max clock of 3.2GHz. Therefore, as mini PCs go, it may be destined for the more budget end of this category.
Accordingly, this new little board has a relatively conventional selection of ports, including 1 HDMI rated for 4K/60 hertz (Hz), which is placed alongside PS/2 ports, 1 DVI and 1 VGA. It also has 4 USB type-A ports, 2 of which might be 3.0 or a subsequent standard.
This J5040-ITX board also has 2 SODIMM slots, 4 for SATA-3 and 1 M.2 slot that is presumably for a Wi-Fi card. The OEM also states that the new board has triple monitor support. At present, this new product lacks for a launch date or pricing information.
