With AMD E-450 APU


At CES 2012 in Las Vegas, Sapphire detailed its newest Edge HD3 mini PC that will finally get some AMD love and pack AMD's latest Zacate APU, the E-450.

Sapphire has been in the nettop business for quite some time with its Edge mini PCs but for some reason was sticking only to Intel Atom D525 CPU in combination with Nvidia's ION2 GPU (on the Edge HD2) or the Intel Atom D510 in combination with the same ION 2 GPU (on the Edge HD). Luckily, now it is all over with Intel as Sapphire is preparing the Edge HD3 with AMD's E-450 APU.

In case you missed it, the E-450 ticks at 1.65GHz, has 1MB (2x512KB) of L2 cache, features Radeon HD 6320 GPU working at 508MHz (600MHz in Turbo mode) with 80 shaders units, has support for DDR3-1333 memory and a 18W TDP. Actually, this will be the only nettop (at least in Europe) with E-450 APU, of course, if Sapphire launches it soon.

There aren't that many details regarding the full Edge HD3 spec, but according to our info, it could end up with 4GB of DDR3 memory, 320GB HDD and will feature USB 3.0 connectivity.

Unfortunately, the price or the actual release date haven't been announced. Pictures of the Edge HD3 are scarse but Techpowerup managed to score a pretty good one. You can find the original picture here.
