Compulab launched its first Mini-PC Fitlet X, Fitlet-I and B-Fitlet less than a year ago, more affordable and 30% smaller than other models in the family, which is then added Fitlet-H. Today, the company launched the new models to its family of Mini PC Linux-ready: Fitlet-T is priced at $ 386, while the two versions of Intense PC (IPC) will have a starting price of $ 638.
Fitlet-T runs on Linux or Windows, but, unlike the A-Series models, adopts a faster processor and a particular SoC quad-core AMD GX-424CC 2.4GHz with 2MB cache and 497MHz Radeon graphics from much more performance than the generation Steppe Eagles. This chip has a TDP of 25 watts and – according Compulab – make Fitlet-T more agile by 40% compared to Fitlet-H and 15% compared to PC4 Fit-Pro. You can configure it with up to 16GB of RAM and add a DDR3L 2.5-inch HDD or SSD. There are two HDMI ports, one mSATA and a microSD reader, two GbE LAN ports, eight USB ports including two USB 3.0, S / PDIF and RS232 connector. There is no lack WiFi 802.11ca and Bluetooth 4.0, but additionally we also find a slot for the SIM card.
In short, except for the CPU, the new Fitlet-T is identical to the Fitlet-H. In this model, however, the cast aluminum case provides an efficient external heat sink by increasing the size and weight of the Mini PC, equal to 19 x 16 x 4 inches 1.1Kg. Fitlet-T can be purchased as a barebones or with Windows or Linux Mint 17.2 on board. All models have a 5 year warranty.
The offer Compulab also grows with two new Intense PC: the IPC2 are updated with Intel Core (Broadwell) fifth generation. The first model IPC2 i7B offers an Intel Core i7-5600U from 2.6GHz and 4MB of cache, while IPC2-i5B is equipped with an Intel Core i5-5200U to 2.2GHz with 3MB of cache. Both processors are dual-core processors with TDP of 15W and Graphics Intel HD Graphics 5500, which is far superior to the graphics chip Intel Haswell, but also can support up to 32GB of RAM and DDR3L 4K screens.
Like previous IPC2, even new feature two SATA ports and an mSATA, two-port GbE LAN, Bluetooth and WiFi 802.11ac, two HDMI ports plus a DisplayPort, and support both audio S / PDIF and analog. Other features include four USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports and three RS232 ports. They are also aesthetically identical, with dimensions of 19 x 16 x 4 cm.
