Most mini PCs with Intel Atom Z3735F only come with HDMI output, while a few others feature both HDMI and VGA like MeLE PCG03, but if you need a cheap mini PC with both HDMI and DisplayPort as found in Intel NUC, Artway W8 Plus is worth a look especially since it sells for just $99 on Aliexpress.

W8_PlusW8 Plus specifications:

W8_PLus_HDMI_DisplayPortThe mini PC comes pre-loaded with Windows 8.1 (Which has got to be unlicensed at that price), but you should probably be able to run Linux based operating systems like Ubuntu, especially since there’s now a fix for HDMI audio. The computer supports dual independent displays via HDMI and DisplayPort. W8 Plus ships with an HDMI cable, a user’s manual, and a 5V/2A power adapter. If you plan to connect an external USB hard drive, you may have to replace the latter with a more powerful one (e.g. 5V/3A) to avoid potential stability issues.

Do we have a clear status on Linux support on these platforms?

Still uefi 32bits?


HDMI 1.4b really? would allow 1080p 120Hz / 60Hz 3D


What is the maximum video pixel clock I wonder. Does it support 3840×[email protected] Hz over DisplayPort?

I just purchased one of this. It has no IR, but most frustratingly , no Audio is coming from the HDMI out. There isn’t even a HDMI sound device, there is just one RealTek Playback device. This is from Windows 8.1.
