Details and pics of Sapphire's new Pure CrossfireX 890GX motherboard have surfaced. The board is full ATX sized and uses the 890GX+SB850 combination.


It's interesting that Sapphire has done away with its iconic white PCB this time around.




The AM3 socket is given 10-phase VRM power and is wired to four DDR3 slots. The integrated Radeon HD 4290 IGP is given 128MB of Sideport memory alongside the ability to share system memory.




Expansion slot wise, there are two x16 PCI-E slots (which operate at x8 electrically when both are used), a single PCI-E x1 and legacy PCI slot.


Other features include six SATA 6Gbps ports (thanks to the SB850 Southbridge), additional controller for an IDE connector, 8 channel audio with optical and coaxial S/PDIF, USB 3.0 support and DVI, D-Sub and HDMI display connectivity.


While the board will be available very soon now, we're not sure at what price point just yet.
