Any guesses as to price? I almost don’t want to know lol.
The prices will be quite horrifying.
Around $500-$600, based on previous generations.
I don’t understand why amd leave the consumer NUC market to intel
AMD’s supply situation is poverty tier.
I can only warn everyone to use the 4X4 BOX 7000 PC for Linux. This is a product made exclusively for Windows. AMD has not yet internalized Linux.
There are too many restrictions.
I can’t turn it on remotely, nor can I administer it via Ubuntu, yet via Windows, just to name a few things.
The PC is very very fast, but that’s about it.
I also didn’t like the mechanical workmanship inside with adhesive strips etc.
My favorite is and still remains the INTEL NUC for Linux.
The (limited) remote admin (e.g. turning it on remotely) is provided by Realtek DASH. AMD has nothing to do it with this.
I run Linux on a 4x4BOX 4800U, no major issues compared to other SBC.
Thanks for pointing that out, but that was just the tip of the iceberg.
This PC doesn’t have much in mind with video either: Either you take the resolution it suggests or it switches after a while anyway.
Screen savers turn the screen black, as set, and back on after a short while.
The thing is not usable, except for Windows, there you hardly have any problems, except for the fact that it then runs slower and it makes fan noise.
Either its industrial or its for consumer, a mix seems odd, maby the industrial tag is just commercial?
The 4 display out could be quite useful in display panel scenarios.
I want the 7735U. But cannot find a seller. Who sells this?
Try to contact distributors in your country. They can be found in the “Where to buy” section on the ASUS Industrial website.
