Giveaway Week – DFI GHF51 Ryzen Embedded SBC

Let’s end this year’s Giveaway Week with a bang courtesy of DFI GHF51 single board computer, that’s about the size of the Raspberry Pi, but is powered by an AMD Ryzen Embedded R1606G dual-core processor coupled with 4GB RAM and 32GB storage.

DFI GHF51 Giveaway

With Gigabit Ethernet, dual micro HDMI output, and a single USB-C port, the board is clearly designed for industrial machines, digital signage, and robotics, but it can also be used as a standard computer via a USB-C hub. I tested the SBC with WIndows 10 Enterprise LTSC and Ubuntu 20.04, and it worked well in Windows, except for some issue with one of my USB hard drives where transfers would just stall from time to time. I had the same issue in Ubuntu plus some artifacts while running the UNIGINE 3D benchmark.

For testing, I set up dual-boot for Windows 10 and Ubuntu 20.04, so considering there’s just 32GB storage, the winner of the board may have to remove one of the operating systems to make it usable.

DFI GHF51 Unboxing

The board is already fitted with the heatsink, and will ship with all accessories including cables, documentation, and a 12V/5A power supply. The package is close to 1kg which explains why it’s a bit much expensive to ship than other giveaway items.

To enter the draw simply leave a comment with your country and whatever else you’d like to say. If the country is missing, I’ll consider the entry void. Other rules are as follows:

  • Only one entry per contest. I will filter out entries with the same IP and/or email address.
  • Contests are open for 48 hours starting at 11 am (Bangkok time) every day.
  • Comments will be closed after 48 hours. If comments are open, the contest is still going on.
  • Winners will be selected with random.org, and announced in the comments section of each giveaway.
  • I’ll contact the winner by email, and I’ll expect an answer within 24 hours, or I’ll pick another winner.
  • Shipping
    • $27 for registered airmail small packet for overseas shipping payable via PayPal within 48 hours once the contest (for a given product) is complete.
    • If airmail small packet shipping is not available, I’d contact the winner to provide another shipping option.
    • If Paypal is not available in your country, you can still play, and I’ll cover the cost of sending the parcel by Sea and Land (SAL) without registration if you win.
  • I’ll post all 7 prizes at the same time, around the 12th of November
  • I’ll make sure we have 7 different winners, so if you have already won a device during this giveaway week, I’ll draw another person.

Let’s beat the 320 entries we got for RockPi 4C giveaway. Good luck!

If you’d like to order DFI GHF51 Ryzen SBC yourself, the model above is sold for $378 with an upgraded 64GB eMMC flash, but without power supply, power cord, and other cables.

i suggest for Jean-Luc to correct terms from
“To enter the draw simply leave a comment with your country and whatever else you’d like to say ”
to
“[…] whatever (except links/URLs) else you’d like to say”
or
“[…] whatever else you’d like to say (except links/URLs)

(as de facto it in act)
