Sapphire has been one of the biggest ATI/AMD players in the graphics card business for over five years now and it's no surprise to see them finally merge out into motherboards. After all, AMD does want as many boards for their own processors based on their own chipsets and their AIB's are the answer to this.
Following a somewhat reference design, the Sapphire board does what it's supposed to; it packs everything you need to get a Dragon system up and running and while there's nothing outstanding about this particular board, it's a good solid robust design with all the necessities in place.
Now, let's see if they will start to bring in any Intel boards. My guess is probably not.
