Another one of those? They must've gotten their hands on some huge doomsday silo of old AMD low-power APUs....:eek:

More of these??

I always wonder how many of these they manage to sell.

While I'm sure most will poo-poo this as old, slow, and dumb; I'm intrigued if the this goes for no more than $75. Something to get my daughter online for school work so I can finally get rid of her Core2Duo based iMac, or for a machine that will be out in my garage/shed where I don't need much but to get online, play some music and read pdf's or how-to videos. I've been eyeing their older on, the A10N-8800E for a while for that very purpose, and as a test run for a MAME cabinet project that I just never seem to start beyond some rough sketches.

Personally, I think a system based on this could get a lot of years out of it: AES, FMA3, AVX2, it could easily still be "supported" and usable 10 years from now

Gigabyte to Biostar - Hold my beer.

That isn't a very good comparison. The Gigabyte is a dual core with R2 based IGP, whereas this Biostar board is a quad core with R7 based IGP. Not even in the same ballpark..

Micro-ATX one looks cooler.
I have to agree. Couple this with a low profile GTX 1650 from Galax or MSI and you have the makings of a solid HTPC or casual gaming system.

Ugh, a solid pass.
I once had a onboard cpu for an HTPC and it was horribly slow. I waited and bought the Ryzen 2200G and boy is that a change.

ninja edit: I just noticed the pci-e slot is only x4. Also if the M.2 slot is occupied the SATA2 port work no more.

I was trying to imply that Gigabyte could do worse than Biostar, as that board was recently announced as well...

I'm just wondering how large stock of this obsolete trash they have? I'm not even lying but I wouldn't take a motherboard like this even for free, I just can't figure any use of a hella slow system. I'd rather use an old AM2+ system and underclock it for better efficiency.

Still waiting for Biostar releases this kind of board with ryzen 2500U or 2700U in the next one or two year. That would be perfect to replace my old fm2+ athlon 880K as my main rig. Yes...I'm that poor

I actually have one system like this one but with weaker A8-5545M on it. Connect it to our family main TV as monitor and so far it's perfect for its purpose as HTPC and local media server for the entire family member using Emby.

My Children even use it to do their school homework that include light video editing with VSDC. For 19 watt TDP it just work verry well for us.

It is definitely better than any AM2+ system that doesn't even support SSE 4.1 or AVX.

I wonder if nvidia GT440 is more powerful than that onboard graphics :confused:

I was thinking the same, just a HTPC or like a casual home pc. Not sure what to go for though, why were you consdering the older A10N-8800E? Price?
