AMD palms PCs with LiveBox miniature desktop

Size of relief

Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

AMD is making a splash at Computex this week with its own mini PC setup, the AMD LiveBox.

Powered by one of AMD's X86-based Fusion chips, the LiveBox boasts 1GB of RAM and Radeon HD 6200 graphics. The model on display features 64GB of SSD storage, which can be expanded through the Box's memory card reader.

One standout feature is the ability to plug the LiveBox straight into a power outlet through its two-prong connector, built directly into the case.

There are also two USB 2.0 ports, a Gigabit Ethernet socket and the customary HDMI slot. For good measure, the company has thrown in space for a 3G SIM card and includes Bluetooth 4.0 capabilities.

Sure, this particular prototype may currently run Windows 7 - no sign of Microsoft's upcoming Windows 8 just yet - and could only be sufficient enough for email, video and surfing the web, but it's not bad for a piece of kit you can fit in your hand, eh?

Here's a hands-on video we found from the guys at nDevil.

AMD hasn't revealed which company will brand its small form factor PC, or whether it is simply a reference design for future PC makers. We've asked AMD for more details and will let you know if we hear more. ®
