Zotac FUSION350-A-E Mini-ITX Motherboard Review

Today we are reviewing the Zotac FUSION350-A-E Mini-ITX motherboard, which comes with an on-board AMD E-350 CPU, four USB 3.0 ports, Wi-Fi as well as additional features. Check it out!

The E-350 is a dual-core CPU with embedded graphics. Actually, AMD calls it an APU (Accelerated Processing Unit). In our articles and reviews, we will still be calling these products “CPUs.” AMD first announced that they would be creating a CPU with an integrated graphics chip in 2006, and gave the name “Fusion” to this idea. Intel, however, copied this idea and released CPUs with integrated video controllers in the beginning of 2010, within its Core i series.

While the A-series are aimed at the mainstream desktop computer market (you can read our review of the A8-3850 CPU here), the E-series is aimed at low-power computers. This platform is called internally “Brazos,” while this family of CPUs has the call-sign “Zacate.” The CPU cores are code-named “Bobcat.” There is also an “Ontario” series (C-series) which has an even lower TDP (and lower clocks).
