The fanless industrial mini PC comes with a 12V power adapter, wall & VESA mounting brackets, and supports Windows 10 and Linux 4.18 or greater. ASRock claims they are the first company to design a NUC 4″x4″ form factor computer with an AMD processor.
Pricing has not been announced, and it’s unclear whether it’s available now. More details may be found on the product page. If you’d rather get the board only, and integrated into your own design, you can do so with ASRock NUC-R1000 board instead.
As a side note, ASRock released a similar mini PC last week, but based on Intel Whiskey Lake-U 15 Watts processors, and called iBOX-8265U.
