Gigabyte is launching yet another nettop powered by Intel’s low-power and low-performing Atom processor. As the semiconductor giant has established the EOL for the D2700, the best Gigabyte can do is the Atom D2550 processor.
The new Gigabyte
GB-TCD thin mini-ITX desktop PC is built around Intel’s N10 chipset and comes with a single SO-DIMM slot supporting up to 4GB of DDR3-1333 memory
Graphics is handled by one of Intel
’s most basic controllers, the extremely low performing GMA X3650.
Gigabit LAN is handled by Realtek’s RTL8111E PHY and sound is provided by Realtek’s ALC887-VD2+ALC105-VE.
There is one 2.5” storage bay available along with a SATA 2 connector and a Mini-PCIe slot along with an additional mSATA slot.
The mSATA connector is very welcomed as a small SSD
would do wonders for the otherwise modest performing system.
There are four USB 2.0 ports on the front along with a 4 in 1 card reader while the back side comes with another four USB 2.0 connectors, one HDMI-out, one SPDIF-out, a VGA port and three audio jacks.
Pricing has not yet been announced.
