A sneak preview of several new mini PC models from ASUS featuring 6th Gen Intel Core processors
Continuing with the coverage of ASUS’ booth where you can find tons of interesting new tech. In this article we will show you a sneak peek into what the company has planned for the rest of the year when it comes with mini PCs.
We start off with ASUS VivoMini UN45 and UN45H. Both devices support up to Windows 10 and include Intel Braswell CPUs. The UN45 sports quad-core Celeron N3150 while the UN45H packs the dual-core Intel Celeron N3000. The fanless motherboard supports up to 8GB dual channel DDR3L 1333/1600MHz memory and the internal storage can go up to 1TB with 2.5″ SATA HDD and in addition – up to 512GB M.2 SSD. The unit also supports 802.11ac Wi-Fi and supports seamless 4K playback through HDMI or mini DisplayPort. Four USB 3.0 ports are on board too, so no worries there.
Moving on with the more powerful solutions in this segment – VivoPC VM65N/VM65. Both machines will be released during Q3 or Q4 maybe, since they feature the upcoming 6th Gen Intel Core Processors which will emerge later this year. The VM65N carries inside NVIDIA discrete graphics card while the budget version (VM65) settles for the integrated Intel HD Graphics GPU. However, both variants have the same storage capacities – up to 2TB 3.5″ SATA3 HDD, up to 1TB 2.5″ SATA3 HDD, up to 512GB SSD and you extend these storage capabilities with the Vivo DualBay. The usual connectivity options are at hand – 4x USB 3.0, 2x USB 3.1 Type A, 1x HDMI, 1x DisplayPort and etc. You can also benefit from a 4-in-1 card reader.
And last, but not least, the VivoPC VC65 which is listed as the flagship of ASUS’ mini PCs. This one also boasts 6th Gen Intel Core processor and Intel HD Graphics card, but the interesting part is the variety of storage setups. You can use up to 1TB 2.5″ SATA3 HDD and/or 512GB SSD. In addition, the system supports RAID configurations and can be easily used for NAS with two storage devices or as a mini server. Ports are as follows: 6x USB 3.0, 1x HDMI, 1x DisplayPort, 1x VGA, 4-in-1 card reader. The VivoPC VC65 also carries optical drive which is a great plus for such small form factor.
