MSI launches the Pro H610M 12VO Board, designed with the ATX12VO power supply standard

MSI has launched the PRO H610M 12VO motherboard which was announced back in January this year. Its special feature lies in its compliance with Intel’s new desktop power standard ATX12VO, which promises better efficiency.

The ATX12VO (“12V Only”) standard excludes the use of 3.3 and 5 volt circuits from the power supply, leaving only 12 volt lines. Further voltage conversion and power distribution is handled directly by the motherboard itself, which can perform this task more efficiently.

Manufactured in Micro-ATX form factor, the PRO H610M 12VO is based on the Intel H610 chipset. The novelty was designed to work with Alder Lake-S processors. The board received two slots for DDR5 RAM with support for up to 64GB of RAM, a PCIe 4.0 x16 slot, a PCIe 3.0 x1 and a PCIe 3.0 x4 M.2 for an NVMe solid state drive. The board also has a second M.2 slot for installing a WLAN module.

Four SATA III ports, a gigabit network adapter, four USB 3.2 Type-A, six USB 2.0, a PS/2 combo port and three 3.5 mm audio jacks have also been announced for the new product. The work of the latter is provided by the Realtek ALC897 audio codec.

The PRO H610M 12VO board is a budget board in every respect, but MSI has also equipped it with modern DisplayPort 1.4 and HDMI 2.1 interfaces. Both are capable of supporting 4K resolution output at 60 fps. There is also a VGA.

The company did not provide any information on the cost of the PRO H610M 12VO board.
