PC Partner N258N1-F is a Linux mini PC Powered by Nvidia Tegra K1 Processor

Nvidia has done a great job porting Linux to their Tegra K1, and it’s one of the only ARM processor with a GPU supporting OpenGL, which helps a great deal with Unity for example. Nexus 9 supports Ubuntu (somewhat), and platforms like Jetson TK1 board are suitable to developers, but as I and others wondered why nobody ever made a Tegra K1 mini PC, I’ve been informed that such device existed already with PC Partner’s N258N1-F mini PC.

I commend Nvidia he has everything, Kernel 3.10.40, and even the “VPU” (GStreamer) ! : http://developer.download.nvidia.com/mobile/tegra/l4t/r21.2.0/sources/gstomx_src.tbz2

Too bad that other manufacturers do not invest as much (eg Rockchip).

It looked pretty much like a “clone” of ZBOX CI321 nano and ZOTAC turned out to be under PC Partner Group as shown below:

They’re a local company here so I’ll ask them directly if N258N1-F were available in Hong Kong or otherwise:
