BIOSTAR Announces A68N-5600 SoC ITX Motherboard

Although Biostar geared up with gaming hardware at Computex 2017, they have not forgotten about their other budget solutions. They are announcing the launch of the Biostar A68N-5600 mini-ITX motherboard. It is an A10-4655 SoC APU based solution that is ideal for low-cost, low-power system builds. Since it is has an AMD APU, the A68N-5600 does not require a discrete graphics card. It has an HDMI port and a VGA-port in the rear IO to connect a monitor for display.

The A10-4655 APU is a quad-core solution that runs at 2.0GHz with a 2.8GHz turbo. The APU is manufactured in 32nm SOI and has a built-in Radeon HD 7620G GPU inside. Its dual-channel memory controller supports DDR3 memory modules up to 32GB at 1333MHz. The CPU cores themselves are based on Piledriver cores, and although they are not the latest, it only has a 25W TDP.

This SoC APU is paired with an A68H chipset on the A68N-5600, which is used on entry-level FM2+ boards. On a mini-ITX real estate, there is a PCIe x16 2.0 slot running at 8x and four SATA3 ports available. There are also two USB 3.0 ports at the rear, two USB 2.0 ports via header and two more at the back.
