Taiwanese device manufacturer Quanta builds computers, cameras, and other electronic devices which are then sold under different brand names. So while you’ll probably never be able to buy a PC-on-a-stick called the Quanta NH2, don’t be surprised if you see a lot of tiny computers that look like this in the future:
Quanta’s NH2 is a PC stick with an Intel Atom x5-Z8300 Cherry Trail processor, 2GB of RAM, and anywhere from 16GB to 64GB of built-in storage.
The company says the new model should offer about 30 percent better performance than the Quanta NH1, which had an Intel Atom Z3735F Bay Trail processor.
Other features for the NH2 include 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, a micro USB 2.0 port for power, and a full-sized USB port (which can be either a USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 port).
Models with USB 3.0 will need a 3 Amp power adapter, while the USB 2.0 versions will be able to use 2 Amp adapters.
The new PC stick is the same size as its predecessor, measuring 3.9″ x 1.5″ x 0.4″.
