Well, i was thinking of getting this one because it's fan less and needs no heat sink or fan. I may need one for anti heat or radiation. I can get mini ITX but have no room in my cara van. Dont live in a house. I have a proper case for it though. My van is small and has a home in it too.

Please tell me if the processor is quad core and 2 threads (octa core) and the speed of the cpu and gpu and if its suitable for gaming of AAA titles like Battlefield 4 on high settings (video) mode.

Also tell me if it has vega 11 GPU RX.

What is the main differance between this board and the BP-NP5 ? I think it's the amount of displays you can attach but still it could be the processor speed. I still want to know it doesn't tell you over there. Mini ITX is good form factor but i like the smallest pc size with an APU with integrated graphics and central processing unit all in one also known as AMD fusion. I don't need it to do power saving but if it can switch mode to power saving it could be wonderfull and i need it to have high performance graphics engine and cpu mode so if it doesnt have it please let me know. Thats because if you game on low power mode video is not good enough.
