ASUS presents Chromebit mini computer
The Taiwanese ASUS has combined the debut of the ASUS GeForce GTX 980 Gold Edition video card with the arrival of another ASUS device – the Chromebit mini computer that runs Google’s Chrome OS. The new device looks like a regular flash drive but packs powerful hardware. In addition the Chromebit can be plugged into a regular TV set with a HDMI port to give it additional functions.
The new ASUS Chromebit is based on a Rockchip RK3288 processor with four Cortex-A17 cores at 1.8 GHz. The chip also has support for 4K resolutions and packs ARM Mali-T760MP4 graphics as well. The rest of the specs include 2 GB of DDR3L memory, 16 GB of internal memory, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, a micro USB connector and a USB 2.0 port. The power consumption of the Chromebit is around 3W.
The new device will come out this summer and will sell for around USD 100.
