The ECS Liva Q3 Plus is a desktop computer with an AMD Ryzen processor, support for dual displays and Gigabit Ethernet. But it measures just 2.9″ x 2.9″ x 2.1″, making it small enough to hold in the palm of your hand. Heck, you might be able to hold two or three at the same time.
The latest in a line of tiny ECS Liva Q computers from ECS, the Liva Q3 Plus is the first to feature an AMD Ryzen chip instead of an Intel processor. Just keep in mind that ECS has opted for a first-gen Ryzen Embedded processor rather than one of AMD’s more recent, more powerful chips.
Smaller than a typical computer mouse, the Liva Q3 Plus can be mounted to the back of a display with a VESA mount, stuffed under your desk, behind your TV, or used for digital signage, kiosk, or point of sales systems.
It will be available with a choice of 15-watt Ryzen Embedded R1505G dual-core or Ryzen Embedded V1605B quad-core chips, the little computer is actively cooled, with a small fan inside the case.
The mini PC supports 4GB to 8GB of DDR4-2400 RAM and 64GB or 128GB of eMMC storage. It also has a microSD card reader with support for up to 1TB of removable storage.
- 1 x HDMI 2.0
- 1 x mini DisplayPort 1.4
- 1 x Gigabit Ethernet
- 2 x USB 3.2 Type-A (the spec sheet says 1 USB 3.2 Gen 2×2, but images show two USB 3.x ports)
- 1 x USB 2.0 Type-A
- 1 x power (12V/3A)
ECS hasn’t announced a price or release date yet.
how much this higher variant cost anyway?
Hmmm. But its front view shows 3 USB Type A….
Never mind. It’s a wonderfull tiny Ryzen machine, despite the lack of option for an internal M.2 ssd.
According to its web page, it’s 1x USB 3.2 Gen2x2 (20Gb/s), not 2x USB 3.2 Gen2 (10Gb/s).
The website also shows an image with three USB ports on one side, not two. So I’m not actually quite sure what’s going on there. I’ll update the article to make it more clear that this is… unclear 🙂
Hmm maybe good to destroy the case and hack into a cubesat, but i wonder about durability in space.
