Chinese like to combine things that seem to be incompatible. For example, to manufacture discrete graphics cards with mobile GPUs or to use mobile processors in desktop motherboards. The device shown in the photo below belongs to the latter option.
This is a motherboard created by Maxsun engineers (the company owns the Meterstone brand). The peculiarity of this novelty (by all appearances, the Mini-ITX format) is in the placement of the mobile CPU Intel Alder Lake H45 directly on the motherboard. Since the Alder Lake-P is a CPU and chipset in one package, there is no separate chipset on the board as there is on full desktop motherboards. At the same time, there are no SODIMM slots on the board either, which would be logical given the mobile nature of the CPU. Instead, there are two full-size slots. And even a discrete graphics card can be connected to this board due to the PCIe x16 slot.
A custom cooling system should be included with this motherboard, since standard Alder Lake desktop solutions don’t fit here. As for the processor itself, it is rumored to have either the top-of-the-line 14-core Core i7-12700H CPU or the 12-core Core i5-12500H.
