“Compared to V/R1000 APUs (Accelerated Processing Units) from AMD, it delivers higher performance. Besides the lower price, the new model also convinces with Windows 11 support and a long life cycle of seven years. Like all Kontron motherboards with the denomination D3xxx or K3xxx, the D3723-R is produced in Germany.”
“The the Mini ITX motherboard is compared to the previous model based on the R1000 and V1000 series, the R2000 shows similar features to the V1000 SKUs. These include 16 PCIe lanes, up to four display ports and scalability of the available APU SKUs (R2312, R2314, R2514 and R2544) from 12 to 54 W (TDP – Thermal Design Power). Windows 11 support and an attractive price/performance ratio clearly speak for the R2000.”
