Giada’s latest compact desktop computer is a fanless PC that measures 7.5″ x 5.9″ x 1″. The Giada F105D is positioned as a solution for digital signage, but it could also be used anywhere you want a small, quiet computer… assuming you don’t need a lot of power.
The Giada F105D-BS200 features a Celeron N3350 dual-core processor, while the F105D-BQ200 has a Celeron N3450 quad-core chip.
While neither of those chips is a powerhouse, they should be able to drive 4K displays, which comes in handy whether you’re building a digital signage system or a home theater PC.
The computers feature up to 4GB of RAM, a 2.5 inch drive bay for a hard drive or SSD and support for M.2 or mSATA solid state storage. There’s also a microSD card slot, two Gigabit Ethernet ports, three USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, and a mini PCIe slot for a WiFi + Bluetooth card.
The Giada F105 also has DisplayPort, HDMI, and VGA ports for connecting multiple displays.
