Biostar is a long time maker of mini-ITX boards for industrial and embedded applications, but at Computex this year they revealed a new mini PC for consumers, which they claim is the world’s smallest. At 129 x 82 x 29.6mm the Racing P1 is small, but we’re not sure it’s the world’s smallest.
Spec wise you’re looking at:
- SoC – Intel Atom x5-Z8350 (up to 1.92GHz)
- System Memory – 4GB onboard DDR3
- Storage –64GB eMMC flash, MicroSD card slot
- Video Output – HDMI
- Audio –HDMI and 3.5mm combo jack
- Connectivity – 1x Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0
- USB – 1x USB 3.0, 4x USB 2.0 ports
- Power Supply – 5V/4A
The Racing P1 also has an RGB LED hiding behind the logo on the top of the unit and apparently this has some kind of user control via software. It might not be the most exciting mini PC out there, but it’s one of the first available with the updated Atom X5 processors that Intel announced earlier this year. Biostar estimated the retail price, sans OS to be somewhere around the $170 region.
