According to a recent report Apple may possibly contract AMD to design a semi-custom x86 SoC for its iMac products in 2017 and 2018. This deal would allow Apple to secure a high performance x86 SoC design at a significantly lower cost than competing Intel solutions.
It looks like Intel has started selling its first complete NUC mini-PC, not a barebones unit. The unit is the NUC5PGYH and is priced at $255. The unit includes a Pentium N3700 “Braswell” SoC board, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of SSD storage.
ASUS has just rolled out a new value Micro-ATX motherboard in their N3150M-E. It is based on the new Intel Celeron N3150 SoC “Braswell.” This 14nm SoC has a quad-core CPU based on the “Airmont” architecture, an integrated GPU with 12 execution units, and a dual-channel DDR3L-1600 memory controller.
Elitegroup Computer System (ECS) is proud to introduce the latest mini PC – LIVA X, a fan-less design, quiet and low power consumption small-size computer. Adopting Intel Bay-Trail M SOC and 15W ultra-low power design; supporting Windows 8.1, Windows 7, Linux, and Ubuntu operating systems, as well. LIVA X supports USB 3.0 port, Wi-Fi & Bluetooth wireless connection technology.
The New ECS LIVA MINI PC Kit runs a fully dressed Intel BayTrail-M SoC (Intel Celeron Processor N2807), which has a full 1MB cache with turbo mode of up to 2.16 GHz. The little Intel Celeron is a dual thread, dual core 64 bit 4.3 watt TDP laptop processor with normal operation wattage of 2.5 Watts and will max out at 4.3 Watts. ECS LIVA MINI PC KIT also uses SKHyniex 2GB DDR3L 1333MHz speed memory soldered on-board RAM. The all black PC board uses either a 32GB or 64GB of eMMC memory which is like the main hard drive and also can use M.2 form factor combo wireless card that supports 802.11b/g/n wireless and Bluetooth 4.0 and also has a Gigabit LAN connection to boot.
There have been many rumors circulating around about upcoming Apple devices, but not that much has been said about the processor that will be powering these devices. Apple’s A8 Processor, which will power these devices will is said to have a clock speed of 2 GHz or higher.
Gigabyte has just announced the J1800N-D2H Mini-ITX motherboard. With this release they join a number of companies offering Bay Trail D compatible motherboards. This board features Intel’s Celeron J1800, which belongs to the Bay Trail D family. It uses the Celeron brand name and is part of the Silvermont architecture. This low-powered SoC is designed for small systems such as HTPC setups.
We spotted at few of AMD socket FS1b motherboards at CES 2014. These motherboards are meant to support AMD’s “Kabini” APUs which have the chipset integrated into the SoC. So these motherboard have CPU sockets, memory slots, PCI-Express, display, SATA, power, and other legacy I/O interfaces. AMD has decided to rebrand this socket as AM1.
Intel has launched the all new ‘Bay Trail’ which is the name for its newly developed family of low power systems on a chip (SoC). By the end of this year, all the leading brands such as Lenovo, Dell and Toshiba will be incorporating these chips into their tablets, two in one and other mobile devices.
