Expert Review

 

The Sapphire Edge HD3 succeeds in delivering a fully-capable multimedia experience in a svelte form factor. It offers superior energy efficiency and CPU performance compared to Atom/ION configurations. Rounding out the package are connectivity options...

Sapphire Edge HD3 review

 

Silent, but deadly? AMD replaces Intel in the newest mini PC

Tiny form factor ; USB 3.0 support ; Improved graphics ; Decent performance ; Connectivity

USB 3.0 driver issues ; No OS installed ; Performance could be better

Sapphire Edge HD3 Mini PC review

 

The HD3 is the successor to the Sapphire Edge HD2, a mini computer that we awarded three stars to last year.

It’s good for a mini-PC, but it’s underpowered by any other standard; worth buying if you’re really struggling for space

Sapphire EDGE HD3 Mini PC Review

 

We review many high end, power sapping systems destined to power through a variety of intensive Direct X 11 games at super high resolutions. They also cause a huge dent with your electricity bill. Not everyone wants or needs such a high powered system...

Almost silent.

very slow hard drive installed.
