With the B660I Gaming V20 and B660I Gaming Frozen V20, Colorful has introduced two more Mini-ITX motherboards for the hybrid Core i 12000 series (test), also known as Intel Alder Lake. The two base plates for the plinth, which are particularly compact at 170 × 170 mm LGA1700 they differ not only in terms of color.
Just almost black and white twins
Almost all board specs, which are both black and white, read the same, the only difference being wired network connectivity. Because while both motherboards are based on an Intel AX201 for Wi-Fi 6, the respective network connection connects once with 1 Gbit/s and once with 2.5 Gbit/s.
Network components from Intel and Realtek
Both motherboards with Intel’s B660 main chipset support up to 64 GB DDR4-4600 (OC) via two DIMM slots and offer one PCIe 5.0 x16 slot for graphics cards. Mass storage can be connected via four SATA ports and two M.2 slots. In addition, 6-channel audio is offered.
An 8+1 phase design with high quality DrMOS power stages should ensure stable voltage modulation.
While the B660I Gaming V20 has an MRSP of $154 (excluding tax), the B660I Gaming Frozen V20 is only slightly more expensive at $159. The two Mini-ITX motherboards should be available in stores in the near future.
