New ASRock motherboard for FM2+ APUs and CPUs 

ASRock has rather silently announced its new motherboard based on AMD's A88X chipset for AMD socket FM2+ APUs and CPU, the ASRock A88M-ITX/ac.

Based on a standard mini-ITX form-factor and featuring support for AMD's socket FM2+ APUs and CPUs with 95W TDP, the new ASRock A88M-ITX/ac packs quite a few decent features on a small form-factor, including integrated 802.11ac dual-band WiFi and an M.2 slot. 

The board has a a 5-phase CPU VRM drawing power from a combination of 24-pin ATX and single 8-pin EPS 12V connectors and comes with two DIMM slots with support for 32GB of DDR3-2400 memory as well as a a single PCI-Express 3.0 x16 slot.

The ASRock A88M-ITX/ac also comes with six SATA 6Gbps ports, single M.2 port on the backside, single M.2 Socket (Key E) 2230 type slot already taken by WiFi/BT module, Gigabit Ethernet, plenty of USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports, 7.1-channel Realtek ALC887 audio, 802.11ac dual-band 433Mbps WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0 as well as HDMI, DVI and D-Sub outputs.

Although officially up on ASRock's website, the new A88X-ITX/ac is still not listed anywhere in Europe so we do not have a precise price or the availability date.
