PC Partner launches Linux mini PC with Tegra K1
PC Partner has introduced a small form-factor computer with a fanless case that measures 5″ x 5″ x 1.8″. It’s called the N2581N1-F, it supports Linux, and it doesn’t have an Intel or AMD processor.
Instead this little computer is powered NVIDIA’s Tegra K1 quad-core processor with 192-core Kepler graphics.
At this point it looks like the PC Partner N2581N1-F is only available in Japan. But if you want a machine that looks the same, it seems that PC Partner and Zotac shop for cases at the same place.
The PC Partner system features 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, HDMI and Ethernet jacks, two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, mic and headphone jacks, an SD card reader, and a serial port… which is a pretty good indication that this machine is aimed at industrial, enterprise, or point-of-sales systems.
It runs a version of Linux that’s been optimized for devices with NVIDIA Tegra chips.
