Centered around the quad-core AMD A4-500 'Kabini' SoC, these two new beauties from ASRock are the mini-ITX QC5000M-ITX/PH and the micro-ATX QC5000M. Both designed to battle Intel's 'Braswell' boards, these new ASRock releases feature heat sink-laden passive cooling.
Almost identical in design, the micro-ATX QC5000M contains two more PCI-E 2.0 x1 slots than its mini-ITX baby brother. With both boards brandishing two DDR3 DIMM slots and a power draw thanks to the help of a 24-pin ATX connector they also offer display options including D-Sub and HDMI.
Other features include the basic additions of 6-channel HD audio, gigabit Ethernet and two USB 3.0 ports.
