Tiny PC maker Giada has unveiled a new small form-factor desktop computer that’s powered by an Intel Haswell processor. The Giada D330 is a barebones PC which is about 2 inches thickand which support sup to an Intel Core i7 processor.
Giada’s targeting system builders and DIY-minded folks interested in building their own little desktop computers. While you’ll need to supply your own hard drive, storage, processor, and operating system the kit includes a case, motherboard, and power supply.
The Giada D330 can support Intel Celeron, Pentium, Core i3, Core i5, or Core i7 chips based on Intel’s 4th-gen Core architecture. It also has 2 DDR3 memory slots for up to 16GB of RAM, a 2.5 inch drive bay for a hard drive or SSD and a mini PCI Express slot for mSATA II solid state drives.
Other features include 2 USB 3.0 ports, 4 USB 2.0 ports, Gigabit Ethernet, HDMI and VGA ports, and a few other ports which suggest Giada envisions this computer finding its way into industrial and point-of-sales type situations. It has 2 COM ports and 2 PS/2 ports.
The Giada 330 measures 9.3″ x 7.2″ x 2″ and while it’s a small PC that might make an interesting media center, note that it’s not fanless.
The system is expected to sell for about ¥ 16,500 in Japan, which is about $157 US, but I haven’t seen official US pricing for this model yet.
