    Sapphire launched a small motherboard that has been fitted with a built-in Ryzen-SoC. The 5 by 5 inch PCB reveals a motherboard with Ryzen V1000-series-soc, which is available in a two or four core...

    This is the segment where AMDs APUs can really shine.

    Are these actually available for consumers?

    What's the point of having three USB 2.0 ports and no 3.0 ports? If there's anything wrong about this tiny thing, it's that. Or are they perhaps thinking that someone will buy this 2018 device and connect it to a really picky usb gizmo straight from the year 2000? One 2.0 and two 3.0 would seem like wisdom.

    Edit: Actually, if Vananovion is correct and these aren't available to consumers at all, it doesn't really matter. Not like it would make a difference inside some POS terminal (it being a POS and all).

    The real question is: Can it run Crysis?

    So tired of these silly Crysis statements.

    My understanding is the game was a horribly optimized mess. Please correct me if I am wrong.

    Crysis was definitely horribly optimized, but it also looks incredible (especially with mods) even a decade later. On modern hardware it still doesn't run great but I can actually run it now on the highest settings with playable framerates, which I couldn't have dreamed of back in 2007.

    Seems very awkward. With the RAM mounting method and a few of the pin headers, this may require a relatively tall chassis. There's also the 4-pin EPS connector, but no other "traditional" power connector. Where are you supposed to get a PSU that only has this? Or is it optional (I noticed it is sitting next to a power jack for an external PSU)?
    I also find the common usage of USB 2.0 a little strange. Surely having a second XHCI controller wouldn't have been that hard to fit.

    Anyway, it's still a cool product. The last time we saw an AMD board of this size was the Gizmo 2, and this is much better than that.

    Well, if you have x86 needs then sure. Otherwise, ARM has a very firm grip on this particular market.

    Judging from the configuration I guess its designed for very specific purposes, like running a 2x2 video wall. A lot of display outputs, and noone would ever care about anything else on it.
    These sort of devices are not meant to replace consumer PCs.

    Is shame Sapphire stopped making motherboards. The last models were not that good, but early 2000s had some pretty good boards.

    This is pretty normal for this kind of machines(they usually also have 2 pins next to the 4-pin EPS connector for 12v/Ground)
    What i find weird is that it doesn't have DB9 conectors, or more RJ45 if they want to sale this thing for POS.
