Radeon RX 560 Aero ITX 2G OC and Radeon RX 560 Aero ITX 4G OC are Based on Short PC-Boards and Fit for Compact Cases

Recently the MSI Company has added two new graphics cards to its products range. These are the Radeon RX 560 Aero ITX 2G OC and the Radeon RX 560 Aero ITX 4G OC models. Having much in common, they differ in the memory volume only.



The MSI cards GPU features the 1,295 MHz boost clock, which is 20 MHz higher comparing to the recommended value. Memory operates at the standard 7,000 MHz frequency.


We should highlight, though, that MSI samples are constructed on the base of short printed-circuit boards of 155 mm length, which allow to install them into compact PC cases. The cooling system is not very complicated. It consists of a modest-sized cooler with an aluminium heatsink and a single fan. MSI specialties do not require additional power supply.


Radeon RX 560 Aero ITX 2G OC and the Radeon RX 560 Aero ITX 4G OC have a default interfaces set, represented by such ports as DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort.

New Mini-PC Foxconn AT-5570 from NanoPC Series

Foxconn introduces a new high-performance mini-PC intended basically at home media systems. Codenamed AT-5570, this computer is characterized by power-efficient, low-noise and compact (190x135x38 mm) properties. Thanks to a dedicated VESA fixing element, AT-5570 might be placed on a rear plate of TV-set or PC monitor; this will offer additional space on the working surface. All potential clients will find this PC either in black or silver casing coloring.



Mini-PC Foxconn AT-5570 is based on two-core AMD C-70 processor and employs AMD Radeon HD 7290 graphics core. The implemented graphics differs dramatically in terms of speed from Intel GMA built-in solutions which are frequently used in similar compact PCs. The model supports DirectX 11 technology and uses DVI/HDMI ports as imaging output; the customer is able to connect two monitors simultaneously to provide for better graphics effects.
