New Asus EEE Box has Intel’s Bay Trail inside

Asus has rolled out a new mini-desktop powered by Intel’s Celeron J1900 Bay Trail 2 GHz quad-core processor with a TDP of 10 watts. 

Additional key specs include Nvidia GeForce 820M graphics (512MB of dedicated memory), 802.11ac WiFi, support for up to 8GB of RAM and up to 1TB of storage (traditional HDD) or 64/128GB solid state drive (SSD).

The fabless mini-desktop also features Gigabit Ethernet, VGA and HDMI ports, a flash card reader, two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports and Bluetooth 4.0.

As Liliputing’s Brad Linder points out, the Eee Box EB1037 is probably one of the most impressive small form-factor PCs to date from Asus. 

“Since the Celeron J1900 chip doesn’t generate a lot of heat, the EB1037 can use passive cooling. There’s no fan in the case,” said Linder. “The whole thing is powered by a 65W power adapter and the case measures just 8.6″ x 6.8″ x 1.15″ and weighs about 1.5 pounds.”

Unfortunately, pricing and launch date is not yet available, although you can access the official Asus EB1037 page here.
