PC Partner has introduced a small form-factor computer with a fanless case that measures 5″ x 5″ x 1.8″. It’s called the N2581N1-F, it supports Linux, and it doesn’t have an Intel or AMD processor.

Instead this little computer is powered NVIDIA’s Tegra K1 quad-core processor with 192-core Kepler graphics.


At this point it looks like the PC Partner N2581N1-F is only available in Japan. But if you want a machine that looks the same, it seems that PC Partner and Zotac shop for cases at the same place.

Update: As MiniPCGuy correctly points out, PC Partner is Zotac’s parent company, which explains the similarity. 

Update 2: Zotac may offer this model in the United States as the ZBOX N258N1-Q.

The PC Partner system features 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, HDMI and Ethernet jacks, two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, mic and headphone jacks, an SD card reader, and a serial port… which is a pretty good indication that this machine is aimed at industrial, enterprise, or point-of-sales systems.

It runs a version of Linux that’s been optimized for devices with NVIDIA Tegra chips.

  1. Lol it better not cost more than 200-220USD. The Jetson K1 devkit is 192USD and all it needs is a harddrive and case to be complete (memory is onboard), and that is an unsubsidized tray price.

    I was excited for a moment and thought this was Dual-Denver K1, but it is just the Jetson board in a Zbox Nano case.
