ASRock Beebox is a noiseless mini PC

We have become used to associating ASRock with motherboards but soon we will have to link the brand name with mini PCs as well or so it seems.

Online reports claim that the plucky little Taiwanese motherboard maker, known for its super versatile motherboards, will soon release a new mini PC, called Beebox. The device is said to measure 118.5 x 110 x 46 mm (L x W x H) and on the outside it looks like the already released Intel NUC and Gigabyte Brix. The main task before the Beebox is to allow its users to work online or with office programs and play video, when this is needed.

Beebox is all about low power consumption but the hardware inside should not be underestimated – the mini PC includes a 14 nm Intel Celeron N3000 processor with two cores at 1.04 GHz (2.08 GHz Turbo) and 4W of TDP, Intel HD graphics, 2 GB or 4 GB of DDR3L-1600 memory (up to 8 GB), a 32/128 GB mSATA SSD, Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and a Realtek ALC283 sound chip. The chassis of Beebox makes enough room for two HDMI ports, a DisplayPort jack, one RJ-45 port, three USB 3.0 ports, a USB 3.0 Type-C connector, one infrared port, 3.5-mm audio jacks and a Kensington lock. The standard version of the Beebox, however, includes a 32 GB SSD and 2 GB of RAM as well as Windows 8.1. The computer is powered by a 36W external power supply unit.

No word on pricing or availability as of now.
