The Chinese company MaxSun will release the H770YTX Terminator motherboard in the unusual YTX form factor. The dimensions of the new product are 245 × 175 mm. It looks like an ITX board that has been increased in width. The non-standard size of the board allowed the manufacturer to add more ports and internal connectors, including additional M.2 slots.
The MaxSun H770YTX Terminator belongs to the solution in the mid-price segment. The price of the new product is 899 yuan (US$126). The board is based on a 10-phase VRM power subsystem with an 8+1+1 phase pattern. It supports processors with a maximum TDP of up to 253W and is designed for use with Intel Alder Lake (12th Generation Core), Raptor Lake (13th Generation Core) or Raptor Lake Refresh (14th Generation Core) chips.
One of the interesting features of the H770YTX terminator is that some of its connectors are located on the back. In particular, the manufacturer has moved the 24-pin power connector of the board itself, an 8+4-pin processor power connector, connectors for connecting additional fans, two SATA ports and front panel connectors to the back. When purchasing this board, keep in mind that it is not compatible with all computer cases.
The new product also received four M.2 PCIe 4.0 x4 slots, two of which are located next to two DIMM connectors for RAM. The latter support memory modules with speeds of up to 8000 MHz via XMP overclocking profiles. One of the M.2 PCIe 4.0 x4 is located on the back of the board, another is traditionally located below the processor socket. In addition, the H770YTX Terminator offers four SATA ports and a SlimNAS SFF-8654 (4 lanes) for NAS drives.
The board also features a full PCIe 5.0 x16, a 2.5 Gigabit network adapter and an Intel AX101 NIC module with Wi-Fi 6 support.
