    Taiwan-based Biostar Microtech has this week introduced the A68I-350 DELUXE, a HTPC-friendly mini-ITX motherboard based around AMD's Brazos 2.0 platform. This 17 by 17 cm board is powered by the AMD A68 chipset and comes equipped with one E-350D processor (two cores @ 1.6 GHz, Radeon HD 6310 Graphics), two DDR3-1066 memory slots, three SATA 6.0 Gbps ports, one PCI-Express x16 (x4 electrical) slot, Gigabit Ethernet, 5.1-channel audio, two USB 3.0 connectors and two display outputs (D-Sub and HDMI).

    The A68I-350 DELUXE is now shipping and has a recommended price tag of 66 Euro.

    E2-1800

    Why not give the board an E2-1800 Brazos 2.0 APU, if this is supposed to be a deluxe board, or at least an E450 APU. They could of at least made it passive as well, bet that fan is noisy as hell under load.

    DVI, where are you? No, I don't want an HDMI dongle that can't drive a high res screen.

    To all of you guys that are paying attention to this part:
    Also pay attention to this one:
    Doesn't make sense, but yeah, it's there. I would hardly call any motherboard below 100€ "DELUXE", but whatever...
    For its price, it isn't that bad.

    Actually, for the price, it's pretty damn good! I'd buy one. It's not perfect but what do you expect for 66 euro?

    A lot of APUs have the 16x slot running at 4x electrical. I wouldn't call this "Deluxe" though. I would call it "Econo-board".
