ASRock is updating its iBOX line of small, fanless desktop computers with six new models powered by 13th-gen Intel Core UE-series processors based on Intel’s Raptor Lake mobile architecture.
All of the new systems pair Intel’s latest processors into a passively cooled aluminum chassis that measures 172 x 109 x 50mm (6.8″ x 4.3″ x 2″) and which pack features like dual 2.5 GBE Ethernet ports and support for up to two storage devices.
The company offers models with Intel Core i3-1315UE, Core i5-1345UE or Core i7-1365UE processor options, and customers can choose from D4 or D5 configurations of each.
D4 models support up to 64GB of DDR4-3200 memory thanks to two 260-pin SODIMM slots, while D5 configurations top out at 32GB of memory, but support faster DDR5-4800 memory that fits into the computer’s two 262-pin SODIMM slots.
Both models can support up to four displays thanks to two USB-C ports, and DisplayPort 1.4a and HDMI 2.0b connectors. But the D5 models supports DisplayPort 2.1 output over a Thunderbolt 4 port, while the D4 tops out at DisplayPort 1.4a functionality.
There are also some other small differences, but both models feature:
- 1 x M.2 2280 slot for PCIe Gen 4 x4 storage
- 1 x connector for a 2.5″ SATA 3 hard drive or SSD
- 1 x M.2 2230 slot for a PCIe x1 wireless card
- 2 x 2.5 GbE Ethernet
- 1 x HDMI 2.0b
- 1 x DisplayPort 1.4a
- 1 x Thunderbolt 4
- 1 x USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C
- 4 x USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A
- 2 x USB 2.0 Type-A
- 1 x 3.5mm audio
- 1 x RS-232 COM
