You like ARM processors more than Intel and would like to have a small, power-saving but powerful MiniPC with ARMv8 processor?
Now is your chance to get your hands on one!
Important information about the pre-order:
|Since we don't know yet how much interest there is in such a mini-PC, here's a pre-order.
If there are enough orders until December 10th, they will be shipped this year - probably before Christmas (if the shipping companies play along).
If there are not enough preorders, you will receive the full payment back!
Here's some information about the PC:
The Phytium D2000 ARMv8 Mini PC offers not only a fast processor but also a dedicated AMD RX 550 (MXM 3.0a)graphics card with 2GB VRAM installed in the PCIe slot.
This makes it suitable not only as an Internet, office or graphics editing PC, it is also great for gaming and emulation.
Thanks to the x86/64 emulator Box86/Box64 from ptitSeb you can also run many closed source Intel programs. In combination with WINE you can even run many Windows programs.
2% of the sales price of each Mini-PC goes directly to the developer of Box86/Box64. This then also benefits other ARM devices (e.g. the Pyra).
The recommended Linux distribution for the small PC is Ubuntu Kylin but OpenSUSE or Debian can also be installed without problems.
The UEFI bios allows a standard installation of the distribution via a bootable installation USB stick.
Since the Qualcomm AR 8035 Gigabit Ethernet card integrated on the board doesn't work well with all distributions yet, an additional USB Ethernet adapter is included with the computer.
The Mini-PC offers one PCI Express8x slot for expansion cards (which is where the RX 550 (MXM 3.0a) is installed, but you could upgrade it, if you like).
