Interesting... Bristol Ridge w/ DDR4 on an ITX board may not be too shabby if the price is right.
Performance-wise it's approximately near Ryzen 3 2200U, but iGPU is painfully slow (about 1/2 the perf. of puny Vega 3).

Decent board. Would make a good HTPC or budget system.
Definitely, but there are some caveats. As far as I know, it's GCN3 w/ UVD6.0, which means you get lackluster HEVC decoding at higher resolutions, no HDR, and no VP9 support.

Not a deal-breaker for many. HDR is still not universally supported by LCD panels in TV's and VP9 is easily replaced by H264/H265.

Yeah, those chips do support HEVC, but only 8bit.
Stoney ridge APUs did get improved hardware decoder with 10bit HEVC, but it would be a really questionable choice to get one-and-a-half core today.

Can i exchange the stinky VGA port for a true RS232 Port or something useful like Displayport/USb-C?

When i read the comments above me, it means i need a nvidia 750ti or 1050ti to have some power for cs:go/AgeOfEmpire/Office/YoutubeHd ..

Biostar = Budget oriented Motherboards so this fits just the marketing blabla is cancer...
Gigabyte and Asus where the most reliable/robust ones with asrock slowly rising in my reputation. Maybe some people here feel otherwise?


Does this sell in europe for less than 150€?
I can buy the A10N-8800E for 85€ in a VS Fight

Why? You have a serial header, just buy a "stinky" RS232 bracket.
VGA is more useful, since more people are likely to plug this into an old monitor, rather than having an unused serial port or Type-C that's still barely adopted.
DP would be nice, but it's not for the target audience.

BIOSTAR is usually the easiest to repair and the cheapest to replace. It breaks just as often as anything else (except AsRock embedded boards, which suck balls since BayTrail).

Yes. Should be the same as A10N-8800E (~90EUR).

Neat idea for a cheap price, but a 9630p? Yuck. Excavator in 2020. At the least use the A12- 9730p.

One of these with a ryzen 4800u or 4900u would be awesome for a small set top casual gaming box.

Biostar probably got all the a10-9630p orders from Atari.

. Excavator in 2020.
When I looked it said Stony Ridge, the last of FX before Ryzen.

Edit: It's Bristol Ridge/Excavator

Why would they get them from Atari? The SOC's Atari are using are Ryzen based not FX based like the board in this article.
No the orders slotted for Atari VCS, before they switched to R1606G. I believe the FX-8800P in the A10N-8800E, there was also a project using it. However, they switched to AMD Ryzen™ Embedded V1000 family of products instead.



So, those pre-planned orders were probably given to Biostar and at a lower price.

AFAIK, Atari has based it's new VCS on Ryzen from the start.

More like 1+ year down the road on the 2nd re-start.

Good to see some refreshment in this segment,
But sad to see D-sub VGA connector, why no DP and HDMI only?
Also only 2 SATA where the SATA2 is disabled if the m.2 is occupied...
Hoping that ASUS and Gigabyte not abandoning this market.

@Baum YES!
And I love my ASUS E35M1-M PRO mobo for low consumption file server for home (I know it is mini ATX size actually)
But, supports 6 SATA the mobo uses around 20W max, my board is getting old it' ~9 yrs - and might fail sometime
So I already looking for replacement options... would like to have m.2 with 4 SATA and a at least 2 cores (4 preferably) with passive cooling.
Still waiting for it...

Target audience of these boards is much more likely to use VGA.

The SoC itself doesn't provide more than 2 SATA ports. Anything more would need to be done using additional chip... and that means cost.
Seeing how storage I/O is organized on bristol+ family the SATA port should be getting disabled only when an M.2 SATA SSD is used.
