    Phoronix: Sapphire Pure Platinum A75

    While Sapphire Technology is a brand more commonly associated with graphics cards than motherboards, after having great experiences with the Sapphire Pure Black P67 Hydra motherboard, we accepted their offer to look at the Sapphire Pure Platinum A75 motherboard. The Sapphire Pure Platinum A75 is a motherboard for AMD Fusion "Llano" APUs and packs quite a number of features. Here's how the Sapphire Pure Platinum A75 works under Linux.

    I wouldn't expect any major difference in performance of 2 mainboards using the same APU and AMD Chipset anyway.
    But it's good to have some details on the "small" things like SuperIO Chips, sensors and so on.
    Good to hear that Multi GPU works in fglrx since with APUs it really makes sense to have it once you decide to put a dedicated card in.
    Still all of them are gaming desktop related and currently I'm looking for smaller office / HTPC like things.

    Nice to have proper Linux support. Shame it is not official...

    I wish Sapphire would be (one of) the manufacturer(s) that *is going to* sell motherboards with coreboot. Can't wait for those desks!

    Yeah!
    I saw USB3 benchmarks on Windows with several USB3 controllers. The same things under Linux would be great
