Sapphire Edge-HD3 Nettop with AMD Fusion

Sapphire, known for its exclusives AMD graphics cards has recently launched in the mini Pcs with its Sapphire Edge-HD series. It is interesting to note that previous versions of the nettop, were based on an Intel Atom processor and Nvidia ION graphics chipset. For an exclusive manufacturer of AMD (former ATI) graphics cards, the choice has been dictated by the fact that AMD at the time did not offer solutions to low energy worthy of the name.

This is now done, AMD has realized that this segment was carrying and that’s why the Sapphire Edge-HD is back, this time with a fully AMD solution. Presented in a design that is reminiscent of the Zotac nettop, the Edge-HD3 is equipped with an AMD E-450 APU, a dual core running at 1.6 GHz and the graphics is provided by a Radeon HD6320 all supported by 4GB of RAM. You may add a 2.5″ hard drive whose capacity can not exceed the 500GB. Operating systems are supplied as standard (Edge-HD3 or FreeDOS), but you are free to acquire a license from another operating system if they do not fit your use.

Weighing less than 1 kg, the Edge-HD3 is equipped with WiFi, an Ethernet port, dual VGA/HDMI video output, headphone and microphone jacks, two USB 2.0 ports and two USB 3.0 ports. The Edge-HD3 is not stingy in terms of connectivity, although the addition of a multi-card reader was granted.

The price and date of availability of the Sapphire Edge-HD3 are not yet known.
