The GIGABYTE E2500N Mini-ITX motherboard is a fully integrated PC motherboard featuring the AMD Dual Core E1-Series APU with Radeon™ HD 8240 graphics (DX11.1). Designed for compact, small form factor PC systems and devices, the GIGABYTE E2500N is mission critical systems, as well as extreme efficiency digital entertainment systems. Connectivity includes digital and analog display outputs via HDMI and D-sub ports, while the HDMI port offers native support for 4K resolution displays.
The AMD E1-2500 APU with Radeon™ HD 8240 Dual-Core processor is the system on chip (SoC) from AMD, which combining CPU, graphics and memory controller in one package. Based on the 28nm manufacturing process, the AMD E1-2500 uses the smallest package of any desktop processor within a low thermal envelope of on 15 watts. The AMD E1-2500 APU boasts excellent performance including DX11.1 gaming on Radeon™ HD 8240 graphics, plus a dedicated hardware motion video decoder for smooth HD video playback.
With superfast transfer rates of up to 5 Gbps, users are able to experience an almost a 10x improvement over USB 2.0. Additionally, backwards compatibility with USB 2.0 assures users legacy USB 2.0 devices will still work.
* USB 3.1 Gen1 10x performance is a maximum theoretical value.Actual performance may vary by system configuration.
There is nothing more harmful to the longevity of your PC than moisture, and most parts of the world experience moisture in the air as humidity at some point during the year. GIGABYTE motherboards have been designed to make sure that humidity is never an issue, incorporating a new Glass Fabric PCB technology that repels moisture caused by humid and damp conditions. Glass Fabric PCB technology uses a new PCB material which reduces the amount of space between the fiber weave, making it much more difficult for moisture to penetrate compared to traditional motherboard PCBs. This offers much better protection from short circuit and system malfunction caused by humid and damp conditions.
GIGABYTE motherboards use Low RDS(on) MOSFETs which reduce energy wastage through unnecessary residual heat dissipation. This all amounts to tangible energy savings which are beneficial for both end-users and the environment without impacting system performance.
GIGABYTE motherboards raise the bar in terms of protecting your system, providing advanced electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection for both your Ethernet LAN and USB ports, both common sources of ESD-related failures. With pairing the dedicated protection filters, the Ethernet LAN and USB ports can withstand high electrostatic discharges, protecting your system from common electrical surges and even direct lighting strikes.
GIGABYTE also uses Anti-Surge ICs to protect the motherboard against power surges.

GIGABYTE Ultra Durable™ motherboards feature GIGABYTE DualBIOS™, an exclusive technology from GIGABYTE that protects arguably one of your PC's most crucial components, the BIOS. GIGABYTE DualBIOS™ means that your motherboard has both a 'Main BIOS' and a 'Backup BIOS', protecting users from BIOS failure due to virus, hardware malfunction, improper OC settings or power failure during the update process.
4K resolution is the next technological milestone in high-definition content delivery, utilizing approximately 4,000 pixels on the horizontal axis, more than four times today's standard HD pixel density. GIGABYTE motherboards provide native 4K support with integrated AMD Radeon® Graphics via HDMI.
HDMI™ is a High-Definition Multimedia Interface which provides up to 5Gb/s video transmitting bandwidth and 8-channel high quality audio all through a single cable. Able to transmit superior, uncompressed digital video and audio, HDMI™ ensures the crispest rendering of digital content up to 1080p without the quality losses associated with analog interfaces and their digital-to-analog conversion. In addition, HDMI™ is compatible with HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection), allowing the playback of Blu-ray/HD DVD and other protected media content.
