Mobo support for 4 pole 3.5mm jack?

Is there a way to know if a Mobo supports a 4 pole 3.5mm jack? You know, without buying a motherboard and trying it? Looking on Mobo sites, and finding nothing. Is it a standard thing the way phones are or no?

most of them don't, if its just for sound and mic, use a breakout adapter that splits it into 2 plugs.

It's not standard on desktops, no.

 

I've never seen a motherboard have a combo jack.

The only time I've seen a combo jack was in a Dell inspiron, but that's super proprietary so no, motherboards generally do not support them. You can get a mic and headphone combiner online, and that might work if you really needed one.

4 pole jacks are all but non-existent on the desktop side. Mainly because 4 pole is much more expensive and it's only benefit is space saving.

You can get adapters to combine or split the line in/out.

Just to clarify, sorry for the necro, but from an electronics standpoint 4 pole is much cheaper. You can streamline the input on the mobo PCB layer and reduce the amount of hardware used. It's not much more expensive, it's quite cheaper.
