Chinese PC hardware manufacturer Erying has unveiled its latest offering to the market, the Intel B760M motherboard. This new release is set to make waves with its integration of Intel’s 13th Generation Raptor Lake mobile processors, supporting up to the formidable Core i9-13900H. Notably, Erying has incorporated an integrated vapor chamber cooler, promising enhanced thermal performance.
Unlike conventional LGA1700 motherboards, Erying’s B760M adopts Raptor Lake H-series processors, employing FCBGA1744 sockets and soldered CPUs. This design choice eliminates the possibility of future upgrades, emphasizing the importance of a thoughtful processor selection. The B760M motherboard is offered with three Raptor Lake H-series options: the high-performing Core i9-13900H, the robust Core i7-13700H, and the capable Core i5-13500H.
The motherboard boasts a robust seven-phased power delivery system and features composite aluminum alloy heat spreaders for efficient heat dissipation. Power is drawn from a standard 24-pin power connector alongside an 8-pin EPS connector. Given the mobile processors, power demands are notably lower compared to their desktop counterparts. For instance, the Core i9-13900H carries a 45W base TDP, with a maximum 115W PL2 power utilization.
Erying has gone a step further in cooling innovation. The typical copper-aluminum alloy CPU cooler has been replaced with a vapor chamber, significantly enhancing heat dissipation capabilities. The company claims a substantial temperature reduction of up to 20% with this new implementation. While integrated cooling is provided, consumers have the flexibility to opt for third-party coolers, thanks to the compatibility with the LGA115x design.
In terms of memory, the motherboard is equipped with two DDR4 memory slots, accommodating a maximum of 64GB through two 32GB memory modules. The highest supported data rate stands at DDR4-3200. Erying is actively working on DDR5 variants, expected to be available early next month. Additionally, users will find two PCIe 4.0 x4 M.2 slots for high-speed storage, accepting M.2 drives up to 80mm in length. For those still relying on the SATA interface, the motherboard offers two SATA III ports.
Considering its microATX design, expansion options are somewhat limited. However, users can make use of a PCIe 4.0 x8 slot for a discrete graphics card and a slower PCIe 3.0 x4 slot for additional add-in cards. While the integrated Iris Xe graphics of Raptor Lake-H may not cater to the most demanding gaming titles, they are well-suited for everyday computing tasks.
In the absence of a discrete graphics card, the motherboard provides two HDMI ports and one DisplayPort output. The rear IO panel also encompasses two USB 2.0 ports, two USB 3.2 ports, a standard Gigabit Ethernet port, dual antenna connections for Wi-Fi support, and three 3.5mm audio jacks.
As of now, Erying has listed the B760M motherboard featuring the Core i9-13900H on JD.com. However, detailed pricing and availability information have yet to be disclosed. This release marks a significant advancement in the realm of PC hardware, showcasing Erying’s commitment to innovation and performance in the ever-evolving landscape of motherboards and processors.
