PIX NII is a pocket-sized mini PC powered by an Intel Pentium N6005 processor (Crowdfunding)

PIX NII pocket-sized mini PC features an Intel Pentium N6005 Jasper Lake processor that should provide a nice upgrade to existing 2.4-inch mini PCs based on Gemini Lake processors such as Larkbox.

The tiny computer is slightly larger (2.7×2.6 inch) than the previous 2.4-inch models, but ships with up to 16GB RAM, up to a 1TB NVMe SSD, and offers two 4K-capable HDMI 2.0 ports, Gigabit Ethernet & WiFi 6 connectivity, as well as a few USB 3.2 ports, plus a 3.5mm audio jack.

The specifications only list Windows 10/11 operating systems, but the company also mentions Ubuntu and Linux support in the description.

Three models are offered on Indiegogo with the following configuration and pricing options:

  • $159 for 8GB RAM, 512GB SATA SSD (Retail: $259)
  • $219 for 8GB RAM, 1TB SATA SSD (Retail: $359)
  • $249 for 16GB RAM, 1TB NVMe SSD (Retail: $399)

Shipping adds an additional $15 to the total cost, and rewards are expected to start shipping by December 2022. As noted by Liliputing, this is the first crowdfunding campaign by PIXCORE, and although they have a working demo, the hardware hasn’t been finalized yet, so there could always be delays. Considering the similar design of all those pocket-sized PC, I would not be surprised if one would just show up with an Intel Pentium N6000 CPU on Amazon or Aliexpress before December.

  1. They should also focus on BIOS
    as for example ZX01 has almost nothing to configure in BIOS
    configurable TPD will be nice
    start after power fail
    autostart on power on

    lots of nice stuff

    1. Which will likely be available as soon as dec 2024 if Intel keeps up with it’s current pace… 😉

  2. Why no Amd alternatives? I think they have Vega for a decent video and somewhat generic gaming but Intel is bismal.

    1. AMD does not seem interested in the low-end market. They don’t really have 10W TDP or lower processors that would work in that small enclosure, except some older processors, or some specific Ryzen Embedded processors, that are not usually that cheap.

  3. This is a scammer project. There is no company information, contact information, and address. The information is deliberately concealed, and it has not been announced. Be careful to be deceived!
