ECS Liva Z Mini PC fanless Apollo Lake



Even if someone considers him a new Mini PC, for us ECS Liva Z is not a surprise. We were among the few, in fact, to see him live last June at Computex 2016, discovering in preview design and technical specifications. Pricing and release date are still a mystery, but the publication of the official page on the company website makes us think that the market debut is not far away. Indeed, it could take place in a few days.

ECS Liva Z

ECS Liva Z is a compact fanless computers (so no fans), as large as an Intel NUC (measuring 127 x 116 x 33 mm), but will be among the first to host an Intel processor Apollo Lake. Not surprisingly, the same Taiwanese company describes it as a Mini PC “quiet and reliable, can support 4K display”.

Unfortunately, ECS does not list the “Apollo Lake” chip that will be installed in Liva Z, but we know that the family is made up of Intel Celeron and Pentium dual-core and quad-core processors with TDP ranging from 6 to 10 watts, capable offer performance (CPU and GPU) 30% higher than the Braswell they replace. According to initial rumors reported by Fanless Tech, though, it would seem that ECS Liva Z will be equipped with 10-watt chip, since then the choice narrows to a few models, such as Intel Celeron J3355, J3455 Celeron or Pentium J4205. It will be available in two SKUs with 32GB or 64GB of eMMC ROM, in addition to a slot for SSD M.2 2280, and two slots for DDR3L RAM up to 8GB max.

Despite its size, ECS Liva Z is a complete computer also in terms of connectivity and there is a USB Type-C and three USB 3.0 full-size, Mini DisplayPort, HDMI, and audio jacks. Not lack of WiFi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 4.0 and two RJ-45 ports, Gigabit Ethernet
