Sapphire Pure Platinum motherboard for A75 APU Llano

Sapphire Technology has presented its motherboard socket FM1 compatible with AMD's APU A-series, better known by the codename of Llano. This is the Sapphire Pure Platinum A75, full-size ATX solution based FC (Fusion controller hub) AMD A75. The board features a PCI Express 2.0 x16 Dual Graphics to enable configuration (iGPU dGPU +), four DDR3 memory slots, five SATA 6 Gbps, four USB 3.0, one eSATA, Gigabit Ethernet, Bluetooth, 7.1 audio subsystem, DVI video outputs, HDMI and DP, 7-segments LED display for degub, buttons, power / reset / Ccmos and offers a dual-BIOS upgrade el'overclock safe system.

SAPPHIRE Technology, the leading manufacturer and global supplier of graphics solutions, motherboards and multimedia solutions, has recently introduced a new motherboard that supports the latest AMD Fusion family of APUs A-series.

The APU-A series of AMD combine in a single chip, a quad core CPU, the interface circuitry equivalent to a Northbridge and a DX11 graphics core equivalent to a desktop-class graphics card, and incorporating a built in UVD (Universal Video Decoder) third generation for accelerated decoding of HD and Blu-ray player, including support for stereoscopic 3D.

This set of APUs, with the A75 chipset with native support for the latest industry standard interfaces such as SATA and USB 3.0 6G, as well as USB 2.0 and PCI-Express Gen2, creates a powerful combination that provides all the features required for a PC state of the art. Sapphire Pure Platinum is a ATX A75 that uses all the features of the chipset A75 and A-series APUs.

There are four dual channel memory sockets, supporting up to 16GB of DDR3 memory and able to support up to 32GB when available modules. The board has four USB 3.0 ports built-in (two in rear), four USB 2.0 ports (eight including the risers), as well as Gigabit LAN and Bluetooth connectivity with EDR (enhanced data rate).

6G has five SATA ports, including support AHCI and RAID, and a SATA port on the rear panel of 3G eSATA connector. Three video output options provided for graphical output of the APU - DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort, which can be used simultaneously and interchangeably in pairs. The HDMI 1.4a provides support both video and audio, including stereoscopic 3D output.

The rear panel has the configuration of I / O standards for the built-in 7.1 HD audio. Full support for expansion is provided by two standard PCI slots, one PCI-E Gen2 x4 and two x1 PCI-E Gen2 and a mini-PCI-E x1 (Gen2) module with this new format, such as a card wireless network. All in addition to a PCI-E Gen2 x16 compatible graphics card add-in.

Installing a graphics card such as a suitable series or HD6600 SAPPHIRE SAPPHIRE HD 6500, Pure Platinum A75 Dual Graphics supports the feature, which means that the graphics performance of the APU are combined with those of the add-in card, to bring to 175% performance of the APU alone graphics card.

Many user friendly features were incorporated in the Sapphire Pure Platinum A75, as the digital display debugging and a reset button for the BIOS, as well as launchers and reset the system. In particular, these buttons are very popular with fans interested in optimizing the performance or overclocking.

The card has Dual BIOS that allows experimentation and updates, for hard-core fans, on the edge of the board are prepared pad control voltage to the voltages on the APU is critical that the memory circuits. Sapphire Pure Platinum A75 offers high quality construction. It has a black PCB and multilayer uses high quality gold plated connectors for USB 3.0 and LAN.

It incorporates many of the high-end features typical of SAPPHIRE products, such as the use of reliable solid capacitors. The multiphase voltage regulation circuitry for the APU and memory modules incorporate inductors Diamond Black Sapphire with a patented cooling systems already used for some of the high-end graphics cards SAPPHIRE.

The tools for monitoring hardware and proprietary software SAPPHIRE Mainboard Trixx allow users to monitor and adjust many parameters of the system, optimizing the performance of the APU and the A75 chip. Sapphire Pure Platinum A75 is already in production and available at SAPPHIRE channel partners and resellers.
