Sapphire Pure Mini 785G AM3: Multimedia Mobo of Decent Performance
 
The demand for PCs packing low power consumption and solid performance is hardly in decline. Intel struck big time with their Atom platform. However, although it had solid CPU power, sufficient for most everyday office tasks, the graphics system wasn’t truly able to provide full multimedia enjoyment. The “inheritor” in the form of Nvidia’s ION platform rectified this drawback, but CPU performance remained the same, since the very heart of the system was still based on Intel’s Atom. More demanding users, who didn’t find Atom’s performance satisfactory, had to turn to other solutions with better performance, but also higher consumption. One of those was based on AMD’s well-known 785G chipset, which brought good performance and an excellent integrated DirectX 10 graphics card…

This motherboard is a good purchase for anyone trying to build a good multimedia or HTPC configuration with decent performance. Its capabilities and dimensions give it advantage over competing solutions (especially as far as CPU power is concerned), although this will cost you a somewhat higher power consumption
