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

By - Source: FanlessTech | B 11 comments

CompuLab's new Fit-PC4 machines pack AMD APUs and are passively cooled.

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....

    The answer lies in this question: do you spend more time making drawings or "selfies"?

    Main reason people are sticking with XP is because of compatibility and hardware. NO F*CKING WAY Windows 9 will require as little hardware as XP or even Linux. Even a simple transparent window border takes 10x more resources on Windows than it takes in Linux. On the compatibility side, I have my doubts as well. If it was that simple, Windows Vista and 7 could've had all XP software running perfectly stable. If Win 9 is getting rushed out like an EA game, it is even more unlikely to happen....

    Why's there no permalink on these articles? I don't know how to share from this infinite-scroll list.

    Nevertheless I took it to China, after it crashing more days than i had it...I then took i to a Chinese shop, the guy was a amazing he told me...'it's a piece of crap too many faults...So what did he do? He installed a fake windows 7...which worked non stop without a virus, without crashing and without freezing...Christ even my media player 12 worked like a charm..He also installed a super fast version of the 'Chinese XP' which was breathtaking in starting and closing.....Now for three years I had that fake windows 7 installed and never once did it fail..I shared an apartment with four other foreign teachers all who had various windows 7 which kept crashing..I told them about mine and showed them..next thing I called the tech guy up, he came to the apartment and installed everything on theirs which he installed on mine......Amazing...microsoft are nothing more than a bunch of crooks selling crap software, and amazingly getting away with it, make no mistake when i return to China soon ...I will be installing the fake 7 once again.....Thank God for Chinese techs...
