I have this board and an A12-9800 Bristol Ridge APU. I want to try to do GPU passthrough with that, but I wasn’t able to try anything of the sort yet because I’m still saving up for the m.2 ssd I want to use as the root drive (had some unexpected expenses crop up and had to delay getting the drive so far…)
Two things I noticed right off the gate when poking around the UEFI: absolutely no way to OC the Bristol Ridge APU, even though the APU itself is unlocked…no CPU OC, no iGPU OC, memory only goes to 2400 (which, to be fair, was to be expected since that is all BR officially supports) and no BCLK OC either.
I’m really kind of disappointed in this board, here is hoping that the upcoming ASUS board will have better support for APUs and hopefully allow for some BCLK overclocking. Or maybe there’ll be some other decent mITX board in time for the Raven Ridge launch, when I plan to retire this ASRock board and the Bristol Ridge chip into an HTPC build for my mother.
