Today's review sample is the ASRock E350M1, which as the name indicates is an AMD E350 Fusion APU with the Hudson-M1 (A50M) FCH. This is an mITX desktop board aimed at anyone interested in building a powerful, yet power conservative, HTPC or Nettop system. With the dual-core 1600MHz E350 being fused together with a Radeon HD 6310 GPU, it makes for the perfect platform with enough horse power for either task. Should you want to make a light TV gaming machine, a digital TV box for DVR, or want the best sound possible for your movies, then there is also a full length PCIe slot that can be filled with a discrete card to match your needs. Having four internal SATA-III ports could easily turn the E350M1 into a massive storage DVR or media storage HTPC. Join us as we see what this little APU equipped board is made of and what it is capable of handling.
