If you’re looking for an unconventionally flexible motherboard that can support DDR4 and DDR5 memory, Chinese manufacturer Onda may be introducing one to the market. Its H610M+ motherboard, built upon the Intel H610M chipset, is not only compatible with both types of memory but is also equipped with the LGA 1700 Socket. For those unaware, this typically makes a mobo compatible with several different processors, including 12th, 13th, and 14th-generation Intel Core CPUs. However, we put an emphasis on the word “typically” for a reason.

According to an article from VideoCardz, this board unsurprisingly supports Intel’s 12th Gen. Alder Lake processors. Unfortunately, its compatibility with 13th and 14th-generation CPUs, which most people are turning to nowadays, remains unclear. Alas, this means the best CPU for gaming may not be supported by this mobo. In addition, if you want to tinker with it, you’ll have to pay a ton of fees to do so if you reside outside of China. That’s because this H610 mobo is only available through AliExpress as of writing, so it hasn’t quite reached the global market just yet.

Question marks surround the Onda H610M+ motherboard

Buyer, beware. Since this motherboard is only available in a limited capacity, there are still plenty of question marks surrounding it. What we do know, however, is that based on its AliExpress product page, this mobo is priced at a reasonable $170 and can support memory capacities of 16GB and 32GB. Though, of course, there are plenty of options from more established brands currently out in the market, so you may be better off settling for one that’s tried and tested.

Of course, if you do decide to go with the H610M+ motherboard, you’ll have to move fast. Its page only has 9 left in stock as of writing, so it seems most people are looking to grab one for themselves. You’ll also need to keep in mind that its capabilities may not be all that suitable for any graphically intensive tasks, like gaming, editing, or animating. That said, if you want a graphics card to pair with this component, check out the best GPUs in 2024.
