BIOSTAR has just introduced a mini-ITX motherboard with a built-in mobile processor, called the A10N-8800E. This Carrizo chipset based model uses an AMD FX-8800P quad-core processor, integrated Radeon R7 graphics and two memory slots capable of supporting 32 GB of DDR4-2133 memory.

The BIOSTAR A10N-8800E boasts an AMD FX-8800P quad-core processor with a boost core clock of up to 3.4 GHz from a base frequency of 2.1 GHz. The FX-8800P is more commonly found in AMD notebooks and has a TDP of just 15 W making it suitable for a low powered SoC system. Some of the main features of the A10N-8800E include a single full-length PCIe 3.0 x16 slot, a Realtek ALC887 HD audio codec and a Realtek RTL8111H 1G NIC. Due to the mobile processor, the BIOSTAR A10N-8800E has a small CPU cooler included. Storage options are limited to just two SATA ports and a single M.2 slot with support for both PCIe and SATA SSDs.

Focused on edge computing, the BIOSTAR A10N-8800E offers users two USB 3.1 Gen1 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, separate PS/2 ports for a keyboard and mouse and two video outputs consisting of a VGA and HDMI 1.4. Users can expand on the basic amount of rear panel USB connectivity by a further two USB 3.1 Gen1 and two USB 2.0 ports through internal headers. The board also has a basic looking power delivery with CPU power coming from a single 4-pin ATX 12 V input and the rest of the motherboard getting its power from a 24-pin ATX 12 V input.

The BIOSTAR A10N-8800E is suitable for small footprint systems due to the mini-ITX form factor. The condensed sizing and power efficient nature of the mobile AMD FX-8800P processor with Radeon R7 integrated graphics makes it an ideal candidate for users looking for a low powered and compact home or office based system.

At present, there is no information on the availability of the BIOSTAR A10N-8800E mini-ITX motherboard, with no details on the boards pricing either.

    I built a machine using an older version of this board (dual core) for websurfing/netflix purposes. It's pretty snappy and handles those tasks without issue, so I imagine this would work even better. Couldn't beat the price, got it on sale for I think $45.

    how did you get through this article without telling us the uarch of the cpu/gpu components?
  • Valantar - Thursday, January 24, 2019 - link

    The title literally says "BIOSTAR goes Carrizo". Carrizo = 8th-gen heavy machinery mobile APUs, pre-Ryzen, with GCN 1.3 graphics IIRC.

    Literally the first link is an explanation of the Carrizo uarch.

    How did this guy get through the first paragraph without picking that up?

    Can Carrizo do hardware h265

    Yes. Duckduckgo:

    Kind of wish they had gone with ddr3 for a value product like this.
  • IGTrading - Friday, January 25, 2019 - link

    True at first sight : maybe now DDR3 is still cheaper than DDR4.

    But in the past 2 decades, I saw how going from SDR to DDR , DDR to DDR2 and so on ... the older tech became more expensive than the newer one, because of the low production/stock numbers.
  • Jorgp2 - Friday, January 25, 2019 - link

    Yup, still have plenty of that laying around

    I find it strange to see a Carrizo these days and not Bristol Ridge.
