  1. Huh, I'm surprised manufacturers are still putting out A320 boards though I'll admit I never paid them much attention. At least it looks like it has Zen2 support and HDMI out, I can see dropping in a 3200G for a cheap HTPC or basic office build.
    There are so many low end motherboard choices from bigger players that I would trust more. With just a quick google I don't see this board for sale yet in the U.S. If the price was right . . .
