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.
