X370 PRO4 Circuit Analysis Continued
The Realtek ALC892 audio codec is being used with some audio capacitors and physical PCB division to improve audio quality.
A Realtek RTL8111H 1Gbit NIC is used on the motherboard. An ASMedia ASM1061 is used to expand SATA6Gb/s ports.
A Realtek RTD2168 is used to provide legacy video outputs from the motherboard. A nuvoton N76E885 is used to provide RGB LED support, and a Texas Instruments eFuse is integrated to provide protection.
An ASMedia ASM1543 is used to provide the type-C USB port on the rear IO, but because the motherboard doesn't have the proper USB 3.1 redrivers, it can't offer USB 3.1 (10Gb/s). The SuperIO controller is the NCT66779D.
A Texas Instruments GD75232 drivers and receivers chip is used to provide the COM port. A few NXP quick switches each moves x2 PCI-E 3.0 between the M.2_1 slot and the second x16 slot.
