Newsmay’s Latest Mini PC is based on Intel Jasper Lake

With the interest in Mini-PC growing thanks to the growth being experienced across application feeds like Edge computing and Digital Displays, Intel at the beginning of the year announced the launch of the Jasper Lake processors to provide a more powerful processor for Mini PCs, and China-based mini-PC manufacturer, Newsmay technologies, has tapped up the processors in the new family to power their latest Mini PC; The AC8 Series.

The Jasper lake processors are a more powerful upgrade to the Gemini Lake processors which had dominated the Mini-PC market, and while there have been leaks and hearsays indicating they several manufacturers have a Jasper lake processor-powered Mini-PC in the work, the first one to the market is the AC8 series.

Fitted into a portable 127 x 127 x 48mm chassis, the Mini-PC AC8 comes in 3 flavors which represent 3 different processors options from which users can choose from including; the Intel Jasper Lake Celeron Processors Dual-Core N4505, the Quad Core N5105 (2.0GHz-2.9GHz), or the Intel Pentium Silver Processor N6005 (2.0GHz-3.3GHz), each with different thermal design power options ranging from 6 – 15W TDP.

Irrespective of the processor and thermal design power choice, the Mini-PC AC8 comes with 3 Display Ports with support for VGA DP and HDMI(at up to 4kp60) making it the perfect solution for multi-display applications, 2 SODIMM DDR4 slots which allow RAM expansions up to 32GB,  multiple storage options including an M.2 SSD and an SD Card slot, multiple USB ports, multiple communication options including Ethernet, WiFi( 2.4G/5.2G), and Bluetooth 4.2 to mention a few features, all of which comes together to make the Mini-PC AC8 one of the “really complete” mini-PC on the market.

Asides from leveraging the Jasper Lake processors, one of the really cool features of the AC8 for me is the super quiet and cool fanless design. While the fanless design is definitely not new, the AC8 employs a honeycomb design for the top and bottom chassis which gives users the license to push the PC to its limits without worrying about heat.

Some highlight features of the Mini-PC AC8 include:

  • CPU: Intel Jasper Lake Celeron Processors Dual Core N4505; Quad Core N5105 (2.0GHz-2.9GHz); Intel Pentium Silver Processor N6005 (2.0GHz-3.3GHz).
  • chassis only 127x127x48mm; More space; Lower energy consumption; Environmental friendly; More Applications.
  • 3 Display Ports Support: VGA DP and HDMI
  • Mic and Audio
  • 4xUSB 3.0 ports

  • M.2 2280 2.5inch SSD/HDD
  • Gigabit Ethernet
  • 2.4G/5.2G Wifi

The AC8 is available for orders on the Newsmays page on GlobalSources at prices ranging from $195 to $215 depending on the type of processors you select and extra features you add, with a 7-30 days lead time depending on quantity.

In addition to the Mini-PC AC8, Newsmays also released a barebone version which features the Intel® Jasper lake Celeron® Processor N5105.
