Foxconn’s fanless, AMD-powered mini-desktop now available for $250
The Foxconn AT-5570 is a small form-factor desktop computer with a low power AMD C-70 processor and Radeon HD 7290 graphics. First introduced a few months ago, the AT-5570 is is now available for purchase in the US.
Newegg is selling a barebones model (without memory, storage, or an operating system) for $250.
While that might seem like a high price for a low power computer that’s useless unless you spend money to equip it with storage and RAM, what you get is a tiny desktop that can run Windows, Linux, or other operating systems. It also has a fanless design, which means that if you use a solid state disk instead of a hard drive, there won’t be any moving parts to make any noise at all.
The Foxconn AT-5570 case measures 7.5″ x 5.3″ x 1.5 and features 2 USB 3.0 ports, 4 USB 2.0 ports DVI and HDMI ports, an audio jack, a memory card reader, and Gigabyte Ethernet.
It supports up to 8GB of DDR3 memory and has a SATA 3.0Gb/s port for a hard drive or solid state disk.
The AMD C-70 chip is a low-power, dual-core x86 processor that’s most commonly used for inexpensive laptops. It’s about as powerful as an Intel Atom chip, but offers higher-performance graphics capabilities.
