From Next, a credit card-sized mini PC with an AMD Ryzen processor

When we talk about very small computers, the idea usually comes to mind. Raspberry pie. This has hardware that meets basic needs, but in raw power it leaves a lot to be desired. Now thanks to INFINITE TIMEa subsidiary of Asuswe can have a AMD Ryzen or a Intel Core i7 in the credit card sizewe present to you Next.

AAEON, the ASUS subsidiary dedicated to industrial computing, announces two new single board computers which will bring enormous power in reduced dimensions. And we are talking about the possibility of installing a 8-core AMD Ryzen or a 4-core Intel Core i7 About the size of a credit card. Thus, we have in front of us much more powerful alternatives to the Raspberry Pi. under the brand NextAAEON expects these two small computers to enter a phase of mass production By the end of September.

AAEON from Next-V2K8: AMD Ryzen with up to 8 cores and 16 threads based on Zen2

Its dimensions are really small, occupying only 84 millimeters long by 55 millimeters widesimilar to a credit card. In fact, the Taiwanese company AAEON mentions that the version with Intel is even smaller. However, if we visit their website, both have the same mentioned dimensions. You could say that they thus become one of the smallest teams in the world to offer such power in their small size. Although these mini PCs were created to be used with industrial purposes or in roboticsit cannot be excluded that they are interesting for a personal use.

We thus speak of pure pottery, since more than one will want to have a computer with an AMD Ryzen that fits in the palm of your hand. So we start with amd-version call From Next-V2K8, which will accept two configurations. The first with a AMD Ryzen Embedded V2516 of 6 cores and 12 threads at a base frequency of 2.10GHz and a Turbo frequency of 3.95GHz. These cores are accompanied by an integrated graphics card based on the architecture AMD Radeon 6 con 6 CUs (384 stream processors) a frequency of 1500MHz.

The second version will use a AMD Ryzen Embedded V2718 con 8 cores and 16 threadswhich will go to a frequency of 1.70GHz base and 4.15GHz in turbo mode. As for the integrated graphic, it will be a AMD Radeon 7 con 7 UA (448 stream processors) at a frequency of 1600MHz. Both processor configurations will have a PDT between 10 and 25W and are based on the architecture AMD Zen2.

From Next-TGU8: up to 11th Gen Intel Core i7-1185G7E 4 cores 8 threads

In case we are not interested in the version with AMD Ryzen, AAEON also offers the possibility to opt for the version with Intel with From Next-TGU8. There are 3 11th Gen Intel processor options offered here. The first will be a Core i3-1115G4E of 2 cores and 4 threads at a base frequency of 2.20GHz and a Turbo frequency of 3.90GHz. The second option will be a i5-1145G7E of 4 cores and 8 threads with a base frequency of 1.50GHz and a Turbo frequency of 4.10GHz. Finally, you can install a i7-1185G7E of 4 cores and 8 threads who will go to 1.80GHz and which will rise to 4.40GHz in turbo mode.

All of these Intel processors will have a PDT Standard of 15W which can go down to 12W or be brought to 28W max. Both platforms, AMD and Intel, will support a maximum of 16GB LPDDR4X RAM. However, says RAM will go to 3733MHz at most on Intel and AMD will be content 3200MHz. Additionally, they will come with two video outputs in the form of HDMI 1.4b y Built-in DisplayPort (eDP) until 4K. They will also include two Ethernet ports, 2x USB 3.2 Gen 2 and a DC port for your external power supply.
