ASRock J4105-ITX, J4105B-ITX and J4005B-ITX the new passive motherboards with Intel Gemini Lake processors


We already have among us the first two models of passive boards that include a new generation processor Intel Gemini Lake. How could it be otherwise they arrive from the brand asrock and for now they come in two versions ASRock J4105-ITX, ASRock J4105B-ITX Y J4005B-ITX. Two models that bring us the new features of these processors in their desktop version and a design similar to previous products of this brand, boards that have not always worked very well as we saw in the review of the previous Apollo Lake.

On the two new passive plates ASRock Gemini Lake we found the processor Intel Celeron J4105 Quad Core that works between 1.5 and 2.5 GHz has 4 MB of Cache and has a consumption of 10W TPD, supports up to 8GB of DDR4 RAM with speeds of 2400 MHz working in Dual Channel, on the other hand the processor Intel Celeron J4005 it is similar but only Dual Core. In the graphic section we have the GPU Intel UHD Graphics 600 going up to 750 MHz with support for video output 4K @ 60fps and hardware decoding for the codec HVEC and VP9 at 10bit color. At the level of communications we have the novelty that in the Gemini Late we have an integrated adapter Gigabit Wi-Fi in the SoC itself with which we only have to connect an adapter Intel CNVi in the M.2 slot as is the CRF module Intel Wireless-AC 9560, which only has the hardware part necessary for radio frequency.

The passive plates ASRock J4105-ITX at the level of design and connections it continues with the ASRock line in this range of products, we have the processor under a large aluminum heatsink in the central part, on its sides we can see the two memory sockets SODIMM DDR4/2400 up to 8GB, has support from triple-monitor with connectors HDMI 2.0 [email protected] with HDCP, DVI and VGA. At the level of connections we have four SATA 3 ports, a slot M.2 for the Wifi module, Gigabit Ethernet, PCIe 2.0 1x slot, we have a jack of audio 7.1 and optical audio output in a zone of the plate protected with trainers to avoid noise with HBR (High Bit Rate Audio) support, we have two USB 2.0 ports and two other ports as a novelty USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A with transfer speed up to 5Gbps. In the BIOS graph We have extensive support for remote power on, ACPI 5.0 protocol, and overload protection circuitry.

The passive plates ASRock J4105B-ITX Y ASRock J4005B-ITX They offer us a similar configuration but the audio jack is eliminated for 7.1 support and a USB 2.0 port, it also has two fewer SATA 3 connectors and does not have an M.2 slot. On the other hand, add COM port external than in the other model is only internal and parallel port, the video output is HDMI 1.4 with which we reach 4K @ 30fps and we have a 1 x PCI Express 2.0 x16 slot. A product as we see focused more on an industrial field where we need this type of connection. We hope to have these plates in our hands soon to do their corresponding review and put them to the test, they will soon be on sale and presumably they will maintain the prices of the current models.
