Among the march of Intel Braswell-based motherboards of late, ASRock has a pair of AMD Kabini-based boards for fans of the red team. The Mini-ITX QC5000M-ITX/PH and microATX QC5000M each sport a 15W A4-5000 APU with Radeon HD 8330 integrated graphics.
The QC5000M uses the extra microATX real estate to add a pair of PCIe 2.0 x1 slots alongside its x16 slot, while the QC5000M-ITX/PH has the single x16 slot typical of Mini-ITX boards. Otherwise, these siblings are largely identical: both feature four USB 2.0 ports and two USB 3.0 ports in their rear clusters, as well as HDMI and VGA video outputs, a serial port, and Realtek ALC887 audio. A pair of SATA 6Gb/s ports handle storage duties.
The QC5000M is already available from Newegg for $55. The QC5000M-ITX/PH has yet to make an appearance, though its bigger brother's pricing should provide a ballpark idea of what to expect.
