The FM2 also in Sapphire

The Sapphire constructor also embarked AMD adventure with a motherboard under socket FM2.

It is the turn of Sapphire to show his new motherboard designed specially for the next APU "trinity" of AMD under the name Pure Platinum A85XT. Directly to the reading of his name, this motherboard logically embarks an A85 who will manage eight SATA III ports to be in format mSATA, four USB 3.0 ports including two on the Panel back and two via the front panel connectors.

The FM2 socket is surrounded by eight floors of food for the APU which will be accompanied by four banks memory in DIMM format without more precision on the supported frequency. At the bottom of motherboard is two ports PCI-Express 2.0 x 16 or x 8 / x 8 when both are occupied. In addition to these two-, Sapphire adds a port PCI-e 2.0 x 4, two PCI - e 2.0 x 1 ports and two conventional PCI ports. But we also note the presence of a mini port PCI-e placed between the two major ports. Useful in the case of a small card WiFi/Bluetooth, but it will become more embarrassing if the mini PCI-e card becomes too thick. Would it not have been better to remove a conventional PCI port to replace it?

On extra connectors, Sapphire motherboard provides a DVI port, a VGA port, a HDMI port and a DisplayPort port, there is something for everyone. In addition, it will be possible to the wire in Gigabit Ethernet and put sound on eight channels with the added bonus of Bluetooth. Step of price for the moment...
