Due to different Linux support condition provided by chipset vendors, please download Linux driver from chipset vendors’ website or 3rd party website.
The board ships with the driver disc, a user’s manual, one COMA/B port cable
one audio cable, two SATA cables, one SATA power cable, one USB cable, and one heatsink.
I could not find pricing anywhere at this stage, although it’s listed on a German reseller but without price info. The board targets the industry and the embedded space, so it won’t be as cheap as a consumer board.
More details, including the user’s manual, BIOS and Windows drivers, can be found on the product page.
