The ECS LIVA Q3D is a tiny computer that measures just 2.9″ x 2.9″ x 1.4″. But it’s powered by an Intel Jasper Lake processor, supports up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, and can send video to up to two displays thanks to DisplayPort and HDMI ports.

It’s the latest entry in the ECS Liva Q line of mini PCs, which also includes two models previously announced models, the ECS LIVA Q3H and LIVA Q3 Plus.

The Q3H and Q3D are close cousins, featuring the same processor, memory and storage options. The key difference is that the Q3H model is designed for video conferencing and has two HDMI ports – one for output and the other for input. ECS positions the LIVA Q3D as more of a general purpose device with two video outputs for use as a digital signage system, media player, or general-purpose computer.

Both mini PCs are powered by 6-watt Intel Jasper Lake processors and feature LPDDR4-2400 memory and eMMC storage.

The LIVA Q3 Plus is a bit different, in that it supports up to a 15-watt Ryzen Embedded processor and has a slightly larger case that measures 2.1″ tall.

It’s unclear when you’ll be able to buy the LIVA Q3D, but this week ECS is showing it off (along with other recent mini PCs) at the Integrated Systems Europe event.

  1. Hmm, full-size DP and HDMI is pretty impressive given how small it is, but not having even one usb-c seems like a miss (personally I would prefer power via usb-c too, just to be more flexible).

    1. Yes, absolutely needs to be powered by USB-C

      Can someone Please tell me how the HDMI in works? What is it uysed for??? Thanks. Imight have a use for it, but now that usb-c and usb are so fast, and cameras can connect that way, not sure the advantage. 🙂
