Since its launch in the fall, Intel’s 12th gen CPUs have only had high-end Z690 motherboards available for early adopters. That meant that those that wanted a more affordable or budget-friendly board still had to wait before completing a new build. At CES 2022, Intel finally gave those users options with the unveiling of the H670, B660, and H610 SKUs for the 600 series chipset.

Each new SKU provides various benefits depending on what you are looking for. Because of that, each will have their own variable pricing set by various manufacturers.

 

As far as the general specifications for the motherboards, there is a lot to like.

The H670 offers eight DMI 4.0 lanes, up to 12 PCIe 4.0 lanes, and up to 12 PCIe 3.0 lanes. For USB lovers, you can have up to 14 USB ports total with it broken up between USB 2, USB 3.2 Gen 1×1, USB 3.2 Gen 2×1, and USB 3.2 Gen 2×2. The B660 offers a max of 12 USB ports, four DMI 4.0 lanes, six PCIe 4.0 lanes, and eight PCIe 3.0 lanes. The more budget friendly H610 doesn’t include any PCIe 4.0 lanes but offers eight PCIe 3.0 lanes with a max of 10 USB ports.
