ASUS Pentium N100 mini ITX motherboard

We discovered the ASUS PRIME N100I-D D4 motherboard through a post on FanlessTech that only included a few photos, but PCWatch and another website also reported about the fanless Processor N100 mini-ITX motherboard at Computex 2023. That’s why the specifications are only preliminary: there’s limited public information.

We’ve previously written about other Processor N100 mini-ITX motherboards from ASRock Industrial and Maxtang, but those are clearly for the industrial market, while the ASUS PRIME N100I-D D4 might not be, with the “ASUS PRIME” brand apparently targeting the retail market:

Prime series motherboards provide daily users and DIY PC builders a range of performance tuning options via intuitive software and firmware features

So it might end up being easier to purchase than the other model. What we don’t know is the price, and when the motherboard will become available.

Thanks to TLS for the tip.

  1. And another time an Alder Lake-N thingy with ‘slightly’ less PCIe lanes used/exposed than available according to Intel (4 vs. 9).

    1. It’s actually normal, Alder Lake-N shares(i.e. multiplexes) 4 of it’s PCIe Lanes with 4 USB10. It also does mux with 2 SATAs, but Asus only used a single one for this so leaves it at 4 lanes(2 x1 and 1 x2).

      I don’t like how many mini-pc makers that use N100 decided to do x1 for the NVMe instead of the single x2 port though. I have a beelink one with N100 and it’s pretty lol, as it could easily have used the x2 port.

      1. > Alder Lake-N shares(i.e. multiplexes) 4 of it’s PCIe Lanes with 4 USB10. It also does mux with 2 SATAs

        Thanks. This is the info I was seeking for and explains why none of the Alder Lake-N thingies reviewed/listed here made use of more than 5 PCIe lanes.

    1. Probably because the connectors are cheap and the signals already somewhere on the board?

    2. Because they’re still used by a significant portion of such boards’ customers. Thanks to these, you know that this board can be a drop-in replacement for many older boards.
