BIOSTAR has just introduced a mini-ITX motherboard with a built-in mobile processor, called the A10N-8800E. This Carrizo chipset based model uses an AMD FX-8800P quad-core processor, integrated Radeon R7 graphics and two memory slots capable of supporting 32 GB of DDR4-2133 memory.

The BIOSTAR A10N-8800E boasts an AMD FX-8800P quad-core processor with a boost core clock of up to 3.4 GHz from a base frequency of 2.1 GHz. The FX-8800P is more commonly found in AMD notebooks and has a TDP of just 15 W making it suitable for a low powered SoC system. Some of the main features of the A10N-8800E include a single full-length PCIe 3.0 x16 slot, a Realtek ALC887 HD audio codec and a Realtek RTL8111H 1G NIC. Due to the mobile processor, the BIOSTAR A10N-8800E has a small CPU cooler included. Storage options are limited to just two SATA ports and a single M.2 slot with support for both PCIe and SATA SSDs.

Focused on edge computing, the BIOSTAR A10N-8800E offers users two USB 3.1 Gen1 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, separate PS/2 ports for a keyboard and mouse and two video outputs consisting of a VGA and HDMI 1.4. Users can expand on the basic amount of rear panel USB connectivity by a further two USB 3.1 Gen1 and two USB 2.0 ports through internal headers. The board also has a basic looking power delivery with CPU power coming from a single 4-pin ATX 12 V input and the rest of the motherboard getting its power from a 24-pin ATX 12 V input.

The BIOSTAR A10N-8800E is suitable for small footprint systems due to the mini-ITX form factor. The condensed sizing and power efficient nature of the mobile AMD FX-8800P processor with Radeon R7 integrated graphics makes it an ideal candidate for users looking for a low powered and compact home or office based system.

At present, there is no information on the availability of the BIOSTAR A10N-8800E mini-ITX motherboard, with no details on the boards pricing either.

    That's a nice little motherboard and processor, though I do have misgivings about single threaded performance and the idea of going back to AMD's old quad core architecture using only one FPU per pair of integer units. However, if the price is right when these hit the shelves, one might make a viable ITX system around it. The use of DDR4 might help feed an otherwise bandwidth starved iGPU as well.

    Yeah, if they're around the same price as Intel Atom based boards this is a steal.

    Yeah, would far rather have this than any embedded Atom board.

    What year is this, 2004?
