Sapphire Edge VS8 Mini-PC Review

Sapphire Edge VS8 Mini-PC Review


With the release of Intel's ATOM and more recently the E-Series APUs from AMD we saw a new generation of systems released by various manufacturers. These mini-PCs offered many of the features available in larger systems but with a much smaller footprint and right at the forefront of the market was Sapphire with their Edge systems. Not only were these systems similar in size to a DVD case they were also relatively low cost solutions which, with some decent features, meant that the product as a whole was well balanced.

Now Sapphire are back with their latest generation of mini-PC, the EDGE VS8. Based around AMDs A8 APU we get quad core processing and DirectX 11 graphics, all in an ultra-compact chassis.

Packaging and Bundle

Sapphire package their EDGE VS series in a reasonably plain box which focuses on the APU model used as well as a note that a VESA mount is provided. Inside the box we find the system wrapped in a protective bag, surrounded by cardboard and foam.

Bundled with the EDGE VS we get the VESA mount, desktop stand and 65w PSU. Also included is a HDMI cable, HDMI to DVI convertor, optical audio cable and documentation/drivers.
