CompuLab has released the smallest techie computer system in the world, fit-PC2 with most power-efficient Intel Atom PC to date. Fit-PC2 is designed around the Intel Atom Z530 1.6GHz and the ultra low power Intel US15W system controller hub, rather than the Atom N270 and 945G used in other nettop-PCs, thereby reducing power consumption by more than two thirds.
US15W incorporates hardware video acceleration. This allows fit-PC2 to run Windows XP or Ubuntu Linux at just 6W and to play full HD 1080p H.264 video using less than 7W. The most striking feature of fit-PC2 is its size – 4″ x 4.5″ x 1.05″ – smaller than a CD.
fit-PC2 may look like an appliance, but it’s a full PC including –
- 1.6GHz x86 CPU
- 1GB RAM
- SATA hard disk
- DVI with graphics acceleration
- High definition audio
- LAN and WLAN
- 6 USB ports
- Supports all major operating systems.
