Sapphire has announced two new miniature motherboards that AMD has built on Ryzen Integrated V1000 / R1000 APUs. The new platforms will be suitable for both commercial and personal computers.
Anyone who is interested in computers or wants to collect a computer knows how important motherboards are. Motherboards, which are one of the most basic parts of computer systems, are critical for achieving the performance you want.
As a result, new motherboards are needed with new processors and new graphics cards. Sapphire, one of the leading companies in the production of motherboards, aims to meet the need in this field with its NP-FP5 and BF-FP5 compact motherboards.
Two new 4×4 motherboards from Sapphire
Sapphire’s NP-FP5 and BP-FP5 compact motherboards are produced in 4×4 inches, while AMD’s Ryzen integrated V1000 and R1000 APUs are at the core of the motherboards. This means that APUs can host up to 4 cores with Zen technology, and can have an integrated Radeon VGA GPU. The systems that are actively cooled allow DDR4-2400 memory usage up to 32 GB.
The new motherboards also have an M.2 slot. Thanks to this slot, SSD can be used. In addition, there are 4 PCIe 3.0 or SATA interfaces on the card. There is also an M-2-2230 slot for the Wi-Fi module.
Technical specifications of NP-FP5 and BP-FP5
The basic NP-FP5 model supports two video outputs. There are two mDP 1.4 connections placed on the motherboard for this purpose. There is also a GbE port on the board and two USB 3.1 connections.
The more advanced model, BP-FP5, has a SATA 6 Gbps connection and three display outputs. The extra screen output on this model offers an HDMI connection. In addition, this card also includes the RS232 / 422/485 input header and Infineon’s SLB9670 TPM 2.0 module.
The systems where Sapphire’s new cards will be used first will be SimpleNUC’s Post Oak and Red Oak UCFF computers. The company will offer computers in different segments for different needs.
