The ECS Liva One A300 is a Mini PC Brings AMD A4 Sockets
Elitegroup Computer Systems (ECS), the global leader in motherboards, mini PCs, notebooks, mobile devices and smart city solutions, is proud to announce the powerful, energy-efficient and multitasking Mini PC LIVA One A300 present. The ECS Liva One A300 takes a lot of the design of these nettops released in the wake of netbooks. But the brand has swapped the brave processors of the time for a more efficient and above all more scalable solution. The proposal is indeed built around a Socket AM4, a proposal that will allow the integration of AMD Athlon and especially Ryzen chips with sufficient dissipation efficiency to withstand up to 65 watts of TDP.
Depending on the chip you want to integrate, ECS offers two types of panels for the machine. A solid metal model that will work with 35 watt TDP chips. Another, more perforated, will allow greater ventilation and therefore to collect up to 65 watts of TDP. The design of the ECS Liva One A300 is slightly turned upside down and the machine is a little larger than the brand's classic solutions. With 20.5 cm high for 17.6 cm deep and 3.3 cm wide, the machine is less compact than the LIVA which usually fit in the hand.
The machine is pierced with a rich connection with, on the front, two USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A ports and two USB 3.2 Gen2 Typer-C ports. Two separate headphone and mic jacks are also visible. At the back, there are two other USB 3.2 Gen1 ports and two USB 2.0 Type-A, a 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet port and some variations on the machine's video connections. By default, the ECS Liva One A300 will offer a basic HDMI port. Some versions will offer two additional DisplayPorts. Another version will ship a DisplayPort and VGA combination and another iteration will even support an RS-232 COM port.
Excellent Multitasking Engine
The LIVA One A300 is equipped with an AMD chipset and supports Ryzen™ and Athlon™ processors. It offers extraordinary and varied alternatives to take over the selective configurations for your everyday tasks. M.2 PCIe 2280 interface for SSD and 2.5″ SATA interface for HDD/SSD allow users to upgrade the system smoothly to meet various needs at work or entertainment. The 64GB* DDR4 dual channel memory is also the booster for improving the overall performance.
Accelerate the Speed
The latest 802.11ax* wireless technology in the LIVA One A300 increases speeds up to 10 Gbps and boosts performance by 40%*. Users can enjoy the comfort of a dynamic world at all times. There is also another 2.5Gbps wired RJ45 port that offers 2.5x faster speed for any occasion. The comprehensive network settings and the advanced Bluetooth 5.0* perfectly support the user to surf the Internet without latency.
Expand Your Horizons
Compact enough to be placed anywhere, the LIVA One A300 supports an impressive 4K resolution at 60 frames per second to provide users with an excellent audiovisual experience. It also offers versatile interfaces, including HDMI, DisplayPort and VGA options*, and simultaneously projects content to three displays with 4K resolution*. This systematic deployment is best suited for various business areas such as video conferencing, digital advertising, information broadcasting and more in a variety of environments.
As it is a barebone system, it is up to the customer to get the memory, storage, operating system and processor. The ECS Liva One A300 will be commercially available soon, but it has not yet been revealed exactly how much the novelty will cost.
