CompuLab's New Fanless Fit-PC's Packs AMD APUs

CompuLab has released its new Fit-PC's the Fit-PC4 Value and the Fit-PC4 Pro. Both of the units feature similar specifications, but have a couple of differences.

For starters, the Value labelled machine comes with an AMD A4-1250 APU. This unit carries a TDP of just 8 W. The Pro labelled machine carries AMD's GX-420CA SoC, which packs a 2 GHz quad-core CPU along with Radeon HD 8400E graphics, and has a TDP of 25 W. This is reflected in the design of the fanless enclosures.

Both of the units have support for up to 16 GB of DDR3-SODIMM memory through two slots, a single 2.5" HDD, a single full-size mPCIe or mSATA drive, a single half-height mPCIe device (populated by the wireless adapter), and they both have a Micro-SD card slot.

Connectivity is taken care of by two USB 3.0 ports, six USB 2.0 ports, two HDMI 1.4a ports, 7.1 channel SPDIF digital audio along with stereo analog audio, and dual Gigabit Ethernet. The Pro labelled machine carries wireless connectivity for up to 802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0, while the Value labelled machine will connect to networks up to the 802.11n WiFi standard, and has a Bluetooth 3.0 adapter.

Pricing is set at $299 for the Fit-PC4 Value, and $380 for the Fit-PC4 Pro, though the storage and memory banks arrive unpopulated at this price.

  • These are lot more enticing than the expensive Brix machines IMO, though they're not much to look at, I suppose it doesn't matter if you can just hide them away. The pro model might even make a pretty sweet lightweight Steam Machine if the specs of the Radeon HD 8400E are anything to go by, as it looks to be a lot better than even the Iris Pro, though I'll wait for reviews to see for sure (Crystalwell's cache memory is hard to factor in).

  • 7.1 channel SPDIF digital audio ey? I'd be interested to hear the specs (codec) and confirm that this does on-the-fly encoding for that over SPDIF. Otherwise you may be missing a comma in there....
