Voyo V3 Mini PC is Powered by Intel Atom x7-Z8700 Processor, Comes with 4 GB RAM, 128 GB Storage

Orange Pi Development Boards

After Zotac ZBOX Pico T4 mini PC unveiled earlier this week, we now have another Cherry Trail mini PC with an Atom x7-Z8700 processor thanks to Voyo V3, that also includes 4GB RAM, 128GB eMMC storage, USB 3.0 ports, dual band 802.11ac WiFi and more.

Voyo_V3Voyo 3 specifications:

  • SoC – Intel Atom x7-Z8700 “Cherry Trail” quad core processor @ 1.60 GHz/2.40 GHz (turbo) with Intel Gen8 HD graphics @ 600MHz with 16EU (2W SDP)
  • System Memory – 4 GB LPDDR3
  • Storage – 128 GB “SSD” storage + micro SD slot up to 128GB
  • Video Output – HDMI up to 4K resolution
  • Audio I/O – HDMI,  3.5mm audio jack
  • Connectivity – Dual band 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 4.0
  • USB – 2x USB 3.0 host ports, 1x USB type C port, 1x USB 2.0 port
  • Misc – Power button
  • Power Supply – 12V/2A
  • Dimensions – 13.00 x 13.00 x 0.99 cm
  • Weight – 200 grams

Intel_Atom_x7-Z8700_computerThe mini PC runs Windows 10, most probably not activated for the model sold now. The same “armored” glass found on Voyo V2 is used, so it will also be a pain to open it, but that’s something most people won’t need to do. Voyo V2 often had a manufacturing defect with the battery wire soldering, but since there’s no battery in Voyo V3, this should not be an issue. Some Chinese websites claim the 128GB storage is a SATA3 SSD, while other simply refer to 128GB “ROM”, but it’s likely a soldered eMMC flash.

Contrary to the Zotac device, we already have some price information, as it is sold for 1399 CNY ($212) in China, and $235.51 with free worldwide shipping on EverBuying. I could not find it listed on any other English websites at this stage. [Update: It’s also listed on GeekBuying, but the company told me that “The factory haven’t confirmed the shipping date, So it’s not READY FOR SHIP. “] [Update 2: Listed on GearBest for $211.99 with coupon GBV3]

Thanks to godmd5 for the tip!

Finally, 4GB RAM and good amount of storage.
Can this thing run Linux?

Does “USB type C port” means that it has USB 3.1?

@klassiker
“Type C” can transport a bunch of protocols (USB 2.0/3.0/3.1 1st/2nd Gen, DisplayPort and even PCIe or Thunderbolt) or is used as in VOYO’s case just for DC-IN (perpetual motion machine still not invented): http://image3.geekbuying.com/content_pic/201601/20160107175752914.jpg

I doubt that also USB and Displayport will be available on the Type-C port. But if so you could power it through new displays like the recently announced Acer H7 or Lenovo ThinkVision X (while the displays will be fed with the monitor signals through the same cable)

Very nice…for the slim boby and finally 4 GB Ram .
Interested to see the BIOS, if capable to boot-up other distro from USB port.

It’s UEFI, just do a web search for »cherry trail uefi linux x7« to get an idea what to expect.

No Ethernet? I think geekbuying list it in the spec but seems like a mistake as there is no physical port. Such a shame otherwise would have snapped this up.

Geekbuying claims they can do 4K. But that probably means 4K30p, right? How about 4k60p?

Actually, googling suggests that the 8700 has HDMI 2.0 but I just figured that 75″ HDMI 2.0 TVs are still extremely costly (more so than I thought, turns out the halfwaz affordable ones are all HDMI 1.4) so I’ll keep waiting for the 4k upgrade

Hi, Ive opened my Voyo V3 many times, contrary to most of the Take apart web sites, you do not have to remove the glass to disassembled the unit. the screws for the clamshell case are underneath and the unit comes apart easily.

The 128GB SSD inside the Voyo V3 is in fact an SATA-M configuration, the mainboard has a SATA-M connector on one edge, and the SSD is fastened with screws on the end of the SSD. The SSD is removable and I have mounted an SATA-M adaptor and installed a Regular SATA2 SSD inside a custom 2din case for my Car PC configuration.
