The IMBA-Q471 completes the portfolio of ATX mainboards from ICP Germany. In addition to the well-known IMBA-Q470, the new IMBA-Q471 is a variant that is exclusively equipped with PCI Express slots of the third generation. The third generation offers transfer rates of nearly 16GByte per second. This makes the interface almost twice as fast as its predecessor version. The IMBA-Q471 offers two PEX16 with x8 signal, three PEX4 and one PEX1 slot as well as one M.2 2242/2280 M-Key slot with x2 signal. For fast data processing, the motherboard supports Intel Core I processors of the 10th and 11th generation. In addition to the Celeron and Pentium entry-level models, the powerful Core i3, i5, i7 and i9 can be used. The motherboard can accommodate a maximum of 128 GBytes of RAM with a maximum clock rate of 2933MHz on its four DDR4 RAM slots. The Intel UHD or HD graphics unit of the processor offers up to 4K on three independent graphics outputs. Display Port, HDMI and VGA outputs are available for graphics output. Five SATA 6Gb/s ports with RAID 0/1/5/10 function are available for storage media. Furthermore, fourteen USB interfaces are available on the IMBA-Q471. In addition to the classic USB2.0, four fast USB 3.2 Gen 1 with 5Gb/s and two USB3.2 Gen 2 with 10Gb/s can be accessed. In addition, the IMBA-Q471 offers three 2.5GbE network interfaces for fast communication with network devices. For legacy devices, the IMBA-Q471 offers three RS-232 and one RS-422/485 interface. Audio and twelve digital inputs/outputs round out the interface offerings. The mainboard supports Intel Platform Trust Technology PTT and TPM and thus also fulfills the prerequisite for operating systems such as Windows 11.
