ACEMAGIC S1 – A Processor N95 mini PC with a built-in LCD information display

ACEMAGIC S1 is a mini PC powered by an Intel Processor N95 Alder Lake-N processor whose main highlight is its LCD information display that shows CPU and memory usage, CPU temperature, fan speed, and other information, and works in both portrait and landscape modes.

The mini PC also comes with 16GB RAM and an SSD with either 512GB or 1TB capacity, as well as two HDMI video outputs up to 4K resolution, two gigabit Ethernet ports, WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2 wireless connectivity, and four USB ports.


ACEMAGIC S1 specifications:

  • SoC – Intel Processor N95 quad-core Alder Lake N-series processor @ up to 3.4 GHz (Turbo) with 6MB cache, 16EU Intel HD graphics @ 1.2 GHz; TDP: 15W (up to 20W)
  • System Memory – 16GB RAM
  • Storage – 512GB or 1TB “dual-channel” M.2 SATA+NVMe SSD (whatever that means)
  • Video Output – 2x HDMI ports up to 4Kp60; dual independent display support
  • Audio – 3.5mm AUX audio jack, digital audio output via HDMI ports
  • Networking
    • 2x Gigabit Ethernet RJ45 ports
    • Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2
  • USB – 2x USB 3.2 ports, 2x USB 2.0 ports
  • Misc
    • Power button
    • LCD screen for system status
    • Kensington lock slot
    • Copper pipes and fan for active cooling
  • Power Supply – Via DC jack
  • Dimensions and Weight – TBD

There’s also a magnetic detachable casing design to facilitate SSD upgrades, and the mini PC can be placed horizontally or vertically on the desk as needed.

It ships with Windows 11 Pro installed, but the company also lists OpenWrt and pfSense to make use of the two gigabit Ethernet ports as a soft router, but it’s unclear whether the small LCD display will work with operating systems other than Windows.

Some may feel like the LCD information display may be a silly and superfluous addition to a mini PC, but there’s a market for this, as external HDMI and/or USB information displays such as the “Turing Smart Screen“, have been sold to technology enthusiasts for years.

The ACEMAGIC S1 mini PC is sold for $239 with a 512GB SSD (out of stock at the time of writing) or $269 with a 1TB SSD.

It’s an overpriced Alder Lake-N quad-core with a gimmick thrown in. I won’t deny that a little info display is cool, but it’s probably wasted on something this low-power. I guess it could be good if you make a server out of it.

I saw someone else complain about the USB2 ports, so I’ll mention that here.

The design looks better than the dumb trapezoidal shaped mini PCs w/ knobs that they make, but it’s still ACEMAGICIAN at the end of the day, another mystery brand from Shenzhen.

How would the display be useful on a server? You need to display stuff on a client, not the server. Clients have humans physically co-located and humans have eyes that could see the display.

You could check server load at a glance, with one you can see, for example a home server. Yes, I am throwing them a bone.

Having such information can be useful. I can’t see many wanting it in the vertical position with the USB ports on top.

But with it being the N95, it does seem a little overpriced. An N100 would potentially be a different matter.

I suspect that the dual channel reference is with regards to the RAM.

I do wish that these machines could get away from USB 2.0 ports.

Alder Lake-N is only capable of using single-channel memory, so that’s impossible. The N95 has a higher TDP than the N100, 2/3 the graphics EUs, and higher clocks. It’s not clear to me that N95, N97, and N100 should be priced differently. N95 has no “recommended customer price” (RCP) for some reason, but the dual-core N50 has the same RCP as N97/N100. N200 is higher because it has higher turbo and the full graphics, but it’s probably not worth paying another $100 for as it’s still a quad-core. 8-core N300/N305 prices are too high, but it seems you can get… Read more »

What is impossible?

You: “I suspect that the dual channel reference is with regards to the RAM.”

Alder Lake-N chips like the N95 and even the flagship N305 only support single channel memory, not dual channel.

The reference was probably marketing Engrish.
