Computex: Sapphire Show R-Series APU A75 CPI Format Motherboard

Sapphire doesn’t just cater for the DIY or enthusiast market and at Computex today they took the time to show us some of their more enterprise/industrial products. The Sapphire IPC-FS1r2A75 motherboard is a CPU format motherboard based on the rev 2.0 FS1 AMD socket. This motherboard supports an AMD R-Series APU with Radeon E6000 dedicated GDDR5 memory and the AMD A75 chipset, which is found on more consumer orientated motherboards. This motherboard provides two DDR3 SODIMM slots, four mPCIe slots, five SATA III 6Gbps ports, and a PCI Express Gen 2.0 X4 slot.

Over on the rear we’ve got two gigabit ethernet ports, HD 6 channel audio, four USB 2.0, four HDMI display outputs and six mini display port outputs. This is certainly a motherboard aimed at powering commercial signage systems and other uses to a similar effect. Its amazing to see how far technology has now come and that we can power 10 displays of such a small motherboard with such a low power APU solution.
