Fanless 3-watt PC with Dual Core ARM CPU, HDMI and Linux

Filed under

Now, Intel's Atom also has competition from ARM in the desktop PC arena. Israel's CompuLab has presented the Trim-Slice, a tiny, fanless PC using NVIDIA's Tegra 2 platform. The System-on-Chip (SoC) has two ARM Cortex-A9 CPU cores with clock rates up to 1 GHz, offering roughly the same computing power as an Intel Atom. But the multimedia equipment is even better. Two HDMI ports are provided, and Tegra 2 also includes an HD video accelerator.

The Trim-Slice reportedly only consumes an average of 3 watts at 8 to 16 volts. 1 GB of RAM (DDR2-800, but probably running at 333 MHz) is on board. Up to 64 GB of SATA-SSD can reportedly be used, but CompuLab has not announced the size – mSATA or 1.8 inches is likely.
