DFI CS620 – a board with everything: ISA, PCI, PCI-E and support for Intel gen 9 processors


May I ask for a motherboard that incorporates ISA slots from the 80s, PCI slots from the 90s, PCI-E slots from the 2000s and is compatible with processors made in 2020, Intel 9th ​​gen to be exact?

Yes, it is possible! It’s not even a big deal, because the interest in old technologies still exists in the industrial environment, hence the need for boards that incorporate 40 years of technology and connectivity. Let’s imagine a power plant that needs an ISA board that controls a turbine or backup generator. Even if some technologies are old, they have proven their reliability over time, so in the industrial environment there is no terrible rush to change simple technologies that still work.

The ISA standard (from Industry Standard Architecture) has its origins in the original IBM PC, but its established form (the 16-bit long slot) was introduced with the 286 processors in 1984.

One of the most powerful boards in this segment, is called DFI-CS620-H310. This motherboard is equipped with Intel H310 chipset for socket 1151 and supports Intel processors gen. 8 & 9, comes bundled with 2 dual gigabit network cards, 1 x PCI Express 3.0 slot, 4 PCI and 2 ISA slots. It also comes with an army of port queries (7 serial ports) and regular ports.

  • 9th/8th Gen Intel® Core™ with Intel® H310
  • Rich I/O: 2 Intel GbE, 6 COM, 4 USB 3.1 Gen1, 6 USB 2.0
  • Two independent displays: VGA + DVI-D / VGA + DP++ / DP++ + DVI-D
  • 2 DDR4 DIMMs up to 64GB
  • Multiple expansion: 1 PCIe x16 (Gen 3), 1 PCIe x4 (Gen 2), 4 PCI, 2 ISA

How much does it cost?

These niche products have more special but not astronomical prices. For the model above I was not able to find a price (prices are found through the RFP method), but for a similar model from MSI (socket 1151) the price is around 190 euros, which is not sick of the place.
