    The latest addition to Sapphire's Pure Black family of mobos, the Pure Black FX990 represents the tippy-top end AMD chipset

    Hot on the heels of the top-end AMD chipset, the FX990, is a little Intel lovin' by way of Sapphire's brand new Pure Black X79N.

    Sapphire Pure Fusion Mini E350 review

    7  

    AMD's long-awaited, and even longer talked-about, Fusion technology has finally seen the light of day with a few motherboard manufacturers offering boards built around it. Fusion is the world's first APU (Accelerated Processor Unit); a combination of a dual core processor, Northbridge controller and a DX11 supporting graphics processor all built into the same piece of silicon and is AMD's belated riposte to Intel's dual core version of the Atom.

    Workhorse motherboards aimed at embedded and commercial applications tend not to make fine fillies in the context of home PCs. With that in mind, what chance has the Sapphire IPC-AM3DD785G in the Mini-ITX motherboard stakes?

    Seemingly from out of nowhere, here comes AMD heartthrob, Sapphire, with a top-end Intel motherboard, the Pure Black X58.

    An advanced motherboard with the latest features, but is it too advanced for its own good?

    Like Zotac's H55-ITX, the Pure Mini couples the cut-down form factor with a full power processor. It's a socket AM3 board which supports AMD's dual core Athlon or Phenom CPUs, and it comes with built in ATI 4200 graphics and Via VT1708S audio. There's even room for a PCI-Express graphics card, if you so wish.

    We don't usually concern ourselves with integrated graphics, but this is an intriguing proposition. It's a small form factor motherboard with an integrated HDMI out to connect it to a high-def TV.

    Spare a thought for this plucky little Sapphire socket-AM2 board. It's the only micro-ATX model in this gathering. Ironically, it's also the only board that comes complete with integrated graphics.

    So, you've bought an AM2 processor, or maybe you're thinking of buying one - they are cheaper after all
