Sapphire Pure Platinum A75 (PT-A8A75)

3 October 2011
  • Conclusion: For what it is designed for, the Sapphire Pure Platinum A75 is a solid nice mainstream board with a little extra bling that makes it stand out among the competition. The overall design for the board is nice with a few minor issues such as the SATA port placement and the 8-pinATX power connector placement. Other than that, there is no major problem with the board’s layout.
  • Pros: Onboard power, reset, clear CMOS buttonLED error readoutOffers good CPU performance, Includes USB 3.0 bracket, 8+2 power phase, Low profile heatsink, Good clearance around the CPU socket
  • Cons: Mini PCIE may have limited usageNo UEFI GUI BIOSSATA ports get in the way of long graphics cards, No CrossFireX support, BIOS extremely inconvenient to use

Sapphire PURE Platinum A75 motherboard

9 August 2011
  • Conclusion: It makes implicit sense for Sapphire, one of AMD's staunchest supporters, to release an FM1-based motherboard complementing the nascent range of A-series APUs. The £100 PURE Platinum A75 is an enthusiast-orientated board that's solid in most respects, though a UEFI front-end for the BIOS and a second x16 mechanical PCIe slot, availing two-card CrossFireX, would definitely help broaden its appeal.

Sapphire Pure Platinum A75 Motherboard Review

20 July 2011
  • Conclusion: Final ThoughtsYou will constantly see Sapphire products being reviewed here at eTeknix and that’s because we believe that they produce some top quality products, at least in terms of graphics cards. This was the first motherboard we’ve looked at from them so based off the Asus and Gigabyte boards we’ve looked at already, it was going to be some big boots to fill.
  • Pros: Great colour scheme, Good overclocking potential, Bluetooth, Mini PCI-Express, Variety of expansion slots, Great performance, Simple BIOS will be favoured by some, Functionality to CrossFire a discrete GPU with APU
  • Cons: BIOS update is definitely needed for stability, Some users may be expect a bit more from the BIOS

Test: Sapphire Pure Platinum A75

1 March 2012
  • Summary: Trots hyfsade möjligheter till överklockning och smart placering av portarna på moderkortet väljer vi en konkurrent före Sapphires A75:a.
  • Pros: Grafikkort med stor kylare får plats utan att blockera intilliggande kortplats.
  • Cons: Traditionell Bios snarare än den moderna Uefi-varianten. Tveksam prestanda.
