Skylake Mini-ITX Motherboards are created using a smaller 14nm manufacturing process, unlike previous Generation Core Processors from Intel.
The main benefit of this Mini-ITX motherboard is its compact size and enhanced performance. Intel Skylake CPUs have a faster 8GT/s bus connection between the CPU and Motherboard it also has higher speed and capacity DDR4 DRAM but can still operate with low power consumption.
Coupled with high end integrated graphics, which support Direct x12, these fanless motherboards are perfect for heavy computing environments and are available for mobile (low power) applications with desk top chipsets for fixed installations:
- QM170 mobile chipset
- C236 top performance fixed installation
- Q170 or H110 desktop chipsets
- Optional 12 volt power input
