PowerColor Readies Entry-Level AMD Brazos Mini-ITX Motherboard

PowerColor is ready with its mini-ITX motherboard based on the AMD "Brazos" platform. The unnamed motherboard that is yet to get its heatsink(s) on, uses an AMD Fusion "Zacate" E-350 APU that embeds a dual-core x86-64 processor clocked at 1.60 GHz, and an AMD Radeon HD 6310 DirectX 11 compliant GPU. The APU is wired to two DDR3 SODIMM slots (notebook memory). Power is drawn in from a standard 24-pin ATX connector. The lone expansion slot is a PCI-Express 2.0 x4 with an open-end (to let you fit x16 graphics cards).

Storage connectivity includes four internal SATA 3 Gb/s, other features include 8-channel HD audio with optical SPDIF output, gigabit Ethernet, two USB 3.0 and a number of USB 2.0 ports. Display outputs include DVI and D-Sub. The motherboard is best suited for entry-level home PCs and office PCs.

Nice Board.


PS. TPU could use a standard comparison table for CPU's... with a footnote link. It would be useful for us punters to be able to quickly compare/reference all these new mobile CPUs

Love the little "Foxxconn" stamped on the metal housing for the rear panel sound connectors (I think)[Upper left]

Almost every mobo I owned got the foxconn logo over at least one connector.
That's how the foxconn logo got burnt in my retina. Everytime I built a system I wonderer wtf was foxconn until I received their first mobo models for reselling.

lol foxconn makes the audio connectors.
Foxconn makes the socket for my cpu, nic audio connector, so so much.
its asus boards btw.
My DFI also got foxconn connectors.

Nothing new.... foxconn probably makes a complete board for asus, really wudnt suprise me, or any other brand.
foxconn doesnt like making complete boards, they do have some, but mostly component production (designing themself too)
Production based on drawings from others, like iphone as an example..

Foxconn is the worlds biggest manufacturer of pc parts, and PC's.
HP, Dell etc..

It's something that actually isnt widely known, foxconn is a giant, no doubt..

The owner of Foxconn is the wealthiest man in Taiwan. Worth a few billion as I understand. It's just slightly amusing to see.
