MSI H610 Mini-ITX Incredibly small and cost-friendly motherboard for 12th and 13th Gen Intel CPUs

The new MSI H610TI-S01 Mini-ITX follows in the footsteps of ASUS and the company’s new Pro H610T in being a compact and cheap motherboard.

The MSI H610 Mini-ITX motherboard provides a slim board with enough power for businesses and professionals with support for 12th and 13th Gen Intel Core processors.

MSI has created an ultra-thin Mini-ITX-based motherboard, supporting Intel 12th Gen Core Alder Lake and newer Raptor Lake processors, measuring 17 cm x 17 cm (6.7 in x 6.7 in). The new board offers HDMI, DP, and USB and only runs on an external 19V power adapter.

The new MSI H610 Mini-ITX motherboard supports DDR4 RAM from 2133MHz to 3200MHz in a dual-slot configuration. The maximum onboard memory is supported up to 64GB and offers a single M.2 interface. Regarding the M.2 interface, ITHome reports that the MSI H610I-S01 motherboard conflicts with an M.2 SSD on the chipset heatsink and isn’t sure if there are issues at launch.

The full list of supported processors on the MSI H610 Mini-ITX motherboard are Raptor Lake, Alder Lake, Pentium Gold and Celeron processors that support LGA 1700 socket.

USB connectivity is minimal, with five slots available in total, divided into:

  • One USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-A port
  • One USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C port
  • Two USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A ports
  • 2 USB 2.0 Type A (located on the front)

The Realtek RTl8111H 1Gbps LAN Controller provides network connectivity. For security purposes, the company chose to provide support for TPM 1.0 and not TPM 2.0, which is what Microsoft was insisting on when the company released Windows 11. However, it does support the new DirectX 12 to increase graphics.

The MSI H610TI-S01 is part of the company’s PRO series of motherboards, with a focus on “professional workloads.” The DDR circuit provides a memory boost and is isolated for durability and performance, while the core boost is provided by MSI’s layout and digital power design. The company tests its motherboards with more than 7,000 hours of validation. Checks compatibility with thousands of products to ensure that the motherboard will fit all user needs.

This MSI motherboard monitors the CPU, overall system, temperature and speed to provide security and durability for heavy workloads. The motherboard requires the processor to provide graphics for the design. The only downside is the lack of a GPU input.

The motherboard is currently out of stock, but previous MSI PRO H610M motherboards have sold for 659 to 699, and we’re unaware of a US version.
