PCPer is reporting that Sapphire Tech is now partnering with AMD to offer up a 5"x5" embedded system using the Ryzen V1000 SoC APU. While the website does not specify what model APU Sapphire is using, the small board packs quite a few features such as dual channel DDR4 3200 SODIMM slots, two M.2 slots, dual ethernet, and four DisplayPort outputs that can handle four 4k displays, and USB 3.1 Type-C. The V1000 SoC has up to 4 Zen cores / 8 threads, and a Vega-based GPU with up to 11 CUs. Check out the video Awesome little bit of kit. I can see it making a great HTPC. I was originally excited for it to build a NAS depending on pricing, but the single SATA connection and lack of PCI-E makes that a bit of a no go. Thanks to cageymaru for the story. The new platform is aimed at video gaming systems (think casinos, arcades, and video gambling machines in bars), digital signage, large display walls, point of sale systems, and medical imaging (high resolution display outputs for medical scanning and diagnostics devices).
