Sapphire introduced the FS-FP5V, a mini-ITX (147.3 mm x 139.7 mm) SFF motherboard designed for AIO desktops, digital signage boxes, and compact desktops. At the heart of this board is an AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 series FP5 SoC based on the 14 nm "Raven Ridge" silicon. Since this SoC also integrates a southbridge, the board is practically chipset-less. The Ryzen Embedded V1000 chip is configured with a 4-core/8-thread "Zen" CPU clocked at 2.00 GHz with 3.35 GHz boost, and 4 MB L3 cache. The iGPU is a Radeon Vega 11, which may look overkill, but is required to pull the four DisplayPort 1.4 outputs of this board (handy for digital-signage applications).

The Ryzen Embedded V1000 is wired to two DDR4 SO-DIMM slots, supporting up to 32 GB of dual-channel DDR4-2933 memory. Storage connectivity includes an M.2-2280 slot with PCI-Express 3.0 x4 wiring, an M.2 E-key slot with x1 wiring for WLAN cards; and a SATA 6 Gbps port. Networking options include two 1 GbE interfaces. USB connectivity includes two USB 3.1 gen 1 ports at the rear-panel, and two USB 3.1 gen 1 ports (direct ports) at the front side of the board, one each of type-A and type-C. Stereo HD audio makes for the rest of it. The board draws power from either 2-pin DC (external) or 4-pin ATX.

Definitely an mini-STX form factor. Still, it packs a lot of features for it's size.

Even though a cooler isn't pictured embedded boards come with coolers.

According to Tom's Hardware this board will have 4 different chip options see here. So I bet some coolers will be passive and some active depending on TDP.

Now I can't wait to buy a barebone based on this thing. Definitely a worthy contender for my "dream-machine" which I wanted to build based off Xeon D supermicro boards.

But there's one interesting question - how to cool this board and what coolers fit on it
From the looks of it the standard AMD box heatsink w/ through-hole mount will fit just fine (akin to AsRock STX boards w/ standard LGA115x mounts).

Even though a cooler isn't pictured embedded boards come with coolers.

According to Tom's Hardware this board will have 4 different chip options see here. So I bet some coolers will be passive and some active depending on TDP.
According to AMD's datasheet it's 12-54W range (which must read 24W max TDP for dual-core parts and 54W max TDP for quad-core parts), so even on the lower side I doubt just passive will suffice(unless you put a monstrous heatsink like on ye olde embedded Athlons of the past decade). Low-ball digits in that range are "scenario" TDP for downclocked SoC.

Very nice, board is great for it's target. While this specific board is not for me, I can see upgrading my G4600T / ASRock H110 STX build once more Ryzen Embedded configurations are available. Keep it up Sapphire! :)

I'm cooling with a Cryorig C7, but I have a standard socket. The hole pattern on the Sapphire board is definitely smaller. Early adopters (outside of the target) will most likely need to take what's given to them and focus on case airflow.

What's even more curious is that the platform features a dual 10GbE interface on the SoC itself (dual 1GbE for the lowest part), but I've just noticed that Saphire decided to opt-in for a pair of old and crappy RTL8111GR's, probably 'cause they have a "leftover" pair of PCIe lanes...
