The industrial-grade rugged enclosure made of aluminum featured with the Mini Multi Display PC does not come with any active cooling in order to protect against dust, debris and moisture. The system is powered by AMD's Ryzen Embedded V1605B APU with integrated Vega 8 GPU that supports four 4K video connections, and can be equipped with up to 32 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM and up to 2 TB M.2 SSD storage.

Ever since Intel got in trouble with the 14 nm CPU shortages, system OEMs started to explore the AMD alternatives. We have seen this happening with desktop and laptop systems, but not too much with mini PCs. British OEM Tranquil PC offers AMD as well as Intel-powered mini PCs, but thinks AMD’s embedded APUs are actually better suited for industrial environments where multi-display setups are a must. To this end, the latest mini PC model coming from Tranquil PC is equipped with AMD’s Ryzen Embedded V1605B quad-core / octa-thread APU that integrates a Vega 8 GPU, which allows it to handle up to four 4K display outputs.
 
Dubbed the Mini Multi Display PC, the AMD-powered system is encased in a fanless industrial-grade aluminum chassis that can easily withstand the weight of a car. The fanless rugged enclosure also protects from dust, floating debris and moisture. Users can add up to 32 GB of DDR4-2400 RAM via two DIMMs and the enclosure only allows for M.2 SSD storage with capacities ranging between 120 GB and 2 TB. Other features include:

  • 2x GbE jacks + optional dual-band Wi-Fi / Bluetooth kit
  • Port selection: USB-C 3.1, 3x USB 2.0, mic-in, 4x DisplayPort outs
  • Size: 54mm x 180mm x 157mm
  • Weight: 3.96 pounds

The basic setup that includes 8 GB of RAM + 128 GB storage is priced at ~US$1,130, while the fully maxed variant with 32 GB of RAM + 2 TB SSD + Wi-Fi kit + Windows 10 Pro costs ~US$2,250.

I first stepped into the wondrous IT&C world when I was around seven years old. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, whether they were from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I'm also an avid reader of science fiction, an astrophysics aficionado, and a crypto geek. I started writing PC-related articles for Softpedia and a few blogs back in 2006. I joined the Notebookcheck team in the summer of 2017 and am currently a senior tech writer mostly covering processor, GPU, and laptop news.
