Sapphire Pure Platinum A75

Filed under

While Sapphire Technology is a brand more commonly associated with graphics cards than motherboards, after having great experiences with the Sapphire Pure Black P67 Hydra motherboard, we accepted their offer to look at the Sapphire Pure Platinum A75 motherboard. The Sapphire Pure Platinum A75 is a motherboard for AMD Fusion "Llano" APUs and packs quite a number of features. Here's how the Sapphire Pure Platinum A75 works under Linux.

The Hudson D3-based Sapphire Pure Platinum A75 is compatible with AMD A-Series and E-Series FM1 APUs. If you're hoping to take advantage of the Radeon HD 6000 series graphics support found on these new Fusion APUs, the Sapphire motherboard has DisplayPort / DVI / HDMI outputs. There is also SATA 3.0 ports, USB 3.0 ports, Bluetooth 2.1, Mini PCI Express, and other features to be covered by this Phoronix review.
