We previously wrote about XS LAB’s V-Raptor server equipped with SocioNext SC2A11 24-core Arm Cortex-A53 SoC, but the Korean company has been working on a different kind of project with V-Raptor Edge mini PC powered by Rockchip RK3399 processor and running Xubuntu 18.04 with an Arm EBBR-compliant UEFI bootloader.
The mini PC was designed to work as a thin client for Cloud PC VDI service from SK Broadband, but XS Lab appears open to expand its use to other applications depending on interest from distributors.
- SoC – Rockchip RK3399 hexa-core processor with 2x Arm Cortex-A72 cores @ up to 1.8 GHz, 4x Arm Cortex-A53 cores
- System Memory – 4GB LPDDR4
- Storage – 16GB eMMC flash or 32GB MicroSD card
- Video Output – HDMI 2.0 up to 4K, and DisplayPort via USB-C port; dual-independent display support up to 2x Full HD
- Audio – 3.5mm headphone jack, digital audio output via HDMI
- Connectivity Gigabit Ethernet, Wi-Fi/Bluetooth 5.0 module
- USB – 2x USB 3.0 ports, 2x USB 2.0 port, 1x USB Type-C port
Some of the software features include a web-based remote console, system setting & remote configuration, OTA firmware update, VDI Client for Windows 10 via SK Broadband service. The company had a demo of the mini PC on YouTube but as people must have seen Windows 10, many got confused, even though that’s what thin clients are for, so the company decided to simply delete their YouTube account!
The company is now prepared online sales and work with distributors to start selling the mini PC for around $300 by the end of April.
