Mekotronics R57 is A Rockchip RK3576 Powred fanless mini PC with dual GbE Ethernet and 6 TOPS AI Power


Mekotronics R57 is a fanless AI mini-PC powered by a Rockchip RK3576 octa-core Cortex-A72/A53 SoC SoC. Other than that it has dual GbE Ethernet, 6 TOPS NPU RS232, RS485, and digital inputs and outputs, and in terms of RAM and Storage it includes up to 4GB LPDDR5, a 32GB eMMC flash.

Previously, we wrote about the Mekotronics R58X RK3588 mini-computer, Mekotronics LS1200 live streaming box, and many other mini-PCs like the AAEON de next-TGU8-EZBOX, MINIX Z100-AERO, MINIX NEO Z100-0dB and many others, feel free to check those out if you are looking for a powerful mini-pc for yourself.

While looking at the specifications of this PC it looked very similar to the Mekotronics R58X but upon looking it’s clear that it has some differences, like it has now got a HDMI IN port and a HDMI Out port and it also got h RS232, RS485, ports.
