It looks like Sapphire wants slices of not just the performance and enthusiast pies, but also the high-volume mainstream one. Its latest creation is a motherboard based on Intel's small business-oriented B75 chipset, the Pure White B75M-MA. Built in the micro-ATX form-factor, this board doesn't add too much over the B75's feature set. To begin with, its LGA1155 socket, which supports current generation Core "Ivy Bridge" and previous generation Core "Sandy Bridge" processors, is powered by a 4+1 phase VRM, which draws power from an 8-pin EPS connector. That's a giveaway that a performance/enthusiast design team was behind this mainstream motherboard.

The LGA1155 socket is wired to two DDR3 DIMM slots, supporting up to 16 GB of dual-channel DDR3 memory; and a PCI-Express 3.0 x16 slot. Three PCI-Express 2.0 x1 slots that are wired to the B75 PCH, make up the rest of the all-PCIe layout. Storage connectivity includes one SATA 6 Gb/s, and three SATA 3 Gb/s ports. The board provides a total of four USB 3.0 ports (two on the rear-panel, two via headers). 6+2 channel HD audio, a number of USB 2.0 ports, a keyboard/mouse combo PS/2, and gigabit Ethernet make for the rest of the connectivity. Display outputs include DVI and D-Sub. Expect competitive pricing.

Sapphire Pure White...sort of deceptive. Here I thought they actually went to a white PCB again:p

Does Sapphire realize that this motherboard is black?

Maybe the Eastern translation of the word white is brown?

During my skim reading I can't even see any reasoning as to why this is call pure white.
But then again, it does sound better than pure brown.

I actually wish they'd bring back the white motherboards. I'd like one in mini-itx...and a video card to match!

I have noticed alot of the motherboard/video card companies switching to brown...what is brown somehow cheaper than black?

Don, you nailed it...they look like crap.

Best,

LC

Why is there only one SATA 6Gb/s and three 3Gb/s on the board even though the chipset supports the standard 2+4?

It isn't truly brown. It looks that way due to the top layer of copper traces. The layer of plastic is so thin the copper peeks through making it look brown.

At Von, I would guess it is due to them only using 4 ports. Its still better than all Sata 3Gb/s ports;)

Their marketing team and their production teams seem to be severely out of sync.
Congratz, another Sapphire Board no one would want to buy! :toast:
