The Pure Platinum Z77i isn't the only new mini-ITX motherboard from Sapphire, the company also has one based on the AMD A75 chipset, supporting upcoming "Trinity APUs from AMD, in the socket FM2 package, called the Pure Platinum A75T. There are quite a few design differences between Sapphire's new mini-ITX motherboards besides the platforms they support. The most significant being, that the Pure Platinum A75T features two DDR3 SO-DIMM slots, instead of standard 240-pin UDIMM ones.

Great. Sapphire are filling nice their product catalog. I read somewhere that DFI engineers went there and may be Oscar Wu, but I am not sure. Maybe because of this we are seeing some great motherboards from them lately.

I think itx is slowly becoming the new standard for home computers, after matx overtook atx some 10+/- years ago.

this is the future of home computing: tv and internet.
good idea those SO-DIMM slots, together with APU, four SATA 6 Gb/s internal ports, USB 3, header on the board, HDMI and gigabit Ethernet.
what else would one want for a home PC.

Mini PCIe for SSD

I wonder if I can use the mPCIe for SSD for fast boot rather than for WiFi.
I use USB WiFi instead.
