In addition to the 990FX based Pure Black motherboard, Sapphire decided to show its A75 FM1 APU socket motherboard that will be a part of its Pure Platinum lineup.

The new Pure Platinum A75 motherboard features 8+2-phase VRM, has four DDR3 slots, single PCI-Express 2.0 x16 slot paired up with single PCI-Express x4, two PCI-Express x1 and one plain PCI slot. Sapphire also decided to throw in a mSATA slot in case you want to go for system SSD, as well as, four SATA 6Gbps ports and single eSATA port. It also comes with 8-channel HD audio, four USB 3.0 and bunch of USB 2.0 ports, Gigabit Ethernet, Bluetooth and D-Sub, HDMI and DVI outputs.

Yummy! But wait the article says 1 plain PCI slot but the picture shows two PCI slot. Unless the other one is not working :-*

So they remove the IDE socket which is rarely used now. Nice clean design and spacious compared to other 8+2 phases board.

Looks impressive. When I heard about this board I was hoping they might make another board with white PCB. great specs though.

Uhh, you sure that isn't 6+2? count the caps, and the chokes.
P.S. Yeah, a white PCB would look pretty cool, especially in a white case with a HALE90 PSU...

I was hoping for a white board also, but since most of these boards won't see the light of day in many systems, I guess it's a moot point.

That's exactly what I was thinking. NZXT Phantom case in white. White PCB mobo. White NZXT PSU and black braided cable extensions to set it all off.
