Foxconn introduces small, fanless desktop with AMD C-70 CPU

Manufacturer Foxconn is best known for building devices for Apple and other PC makers. But the company also sells a few computers, motherboards, and other products under its own name. One of the latest is the Foxconn AT-5570, a  small form-factor PC with an AMD C-70 low power processor.

This tiny desktop features a fanless design which means that it should be able to sit on your desk or near your TV without making any noise.

The computer has a 1 GHz AMD C-70 dual core CPU with a TDP of 9W. It doesn’t generate a lot of heat, and allows Foxconn to use a passive cooling solution.

But the chip also feature AMD Radeon HD graphics with support for HD video playback and DirectX 11 graphics.

The computer has a 2.5 inch bay for a hard drive or solid state disk and supports up to 4GB of RAM.

Interestingly, Foxconn says the system has Radeon HD 7290 graphics. Up until now I’d only seen the C-70 processor described as a chip with Radeon 6290 graphics. But if Foxconn’s product page is accurate, it looks like the difference between the AMD C-70 and last year’s C-60 chip may be the newer graphics core.

    DX11 is great but what Graphics intense games will run on a 1Ghz CPU? any?

    • Craig

      DX11 is shit. It’s all about OpenGL, son.

    150$ or more?

  • Clive

    LOL its not meant to play games. This would run as a home theater pc/media server. Good luck playing graphics intense games on any of these low power solutions

      I’ve got an Acer 522 laptop with the older, slower C-50. I’ve used it to play all the Half-Life 1 and 2 games, Crysis 1 and 2, Portal 1 and 2, Oblivion, Halo 1 and 2, and the Mass Effect trilogy. I also use it for Photoshop CS5 and some other miscellaneous graphics stuff. It won’t run any of the games at top settings, but AMD’s low-power APUs do a pretty good for the price.

      The days of discrete cards being the only feasible way of gaming are over. You can play many recent AAA games on laptops with integrated graphics. Are you stuck in the past or just cluelessly repeating what you heard?

    my unit look just like this one but with e-350. I take it Mine is faster but with a crappier graphics chip.

    Why do PC Gamers always want to play games on PC hardware no matter what? Just unrealistic, #SMH. This is perfect for console emulation, windows media center (Windows 7 or Windows 8). It will support Blu Ray and Flash HD no problem, low power, low power usage, save money. Borrow a Kill-A-Watt from the local library.

      What the fuck are you even talking about? Don’t you worry your little head over what other people prefer.
