CompuLab has just announced fit-PC4, a miniature fanless PC based on AMD GX-420CA G-Series SoC with four “Jaguar” cores clocked 2.0GHz,and Radeon HD 8400E graphics, and supporting up to 16 GB RAM, and storage via SATA, mSATA or a micro SD card. This if for the Pro version, but there’s also a Value version powered by A4-1250 APU.

There are five models for fit-PC4:

  • fit-PC4 Value barebone – A4-1250, no hard drive, no RAM.
  • fit-PC4 Pro barebone – GX-420CA, no hard drive, no RAM.
  • fit-PC4 Pro Linux – GX-450CA, 4GB (2x 2GB) RAM, 320GB 2.5″ internal hard drive, and Linux Mint 64-bit pre-installed
  • fit-PC4 Pro Windows – GX-450CA, 4GB (2x 2GB) RAM, 320GB 2.5″ internal hard drive, and Windows 7 professional pre-installed
  • fit-PC4 Pro SSD – GX-450CA, 8GB (2x 4GB) RAM, 120 GB internal mSATA SSD, and Windows 7 professional pre-installed

fit-PC4 Value will be available until 2016, and fit-PC4 Pro until 2020. You can find a detailed side-by-side comparison on fit-pc website.

I first got interested in AMD G-Series APU, then SoC because they integrated the CPU, GPU and then chipset in one chip just like ARM, but Intel has since done the same with their recent Bay-Trail processors for tablets, mobiles, and desktops, and I haven’t really found any compelling products based on AMD G-Series SoC. The 25W TDP for the model used in fit-PC4 is now relatively high too, at least compared to the competition.

fit-PC4 is available now starting at $299 for the Value-Barebone model and $380 for the Pro-Barebone model. More details should eventually surface on fit-PC4 page.
