ACTE and ASRock presents AMD Ryzen™ NUC PC

ASRock has introduced what could be the world’s smallest system based on AMD Ryzen processor. The 4X4 Box-R1000 ultra-compact form-factor (UCFF) PC can fit on the palm of a hand, yet it packs everything needed to run a variety of software required for digital signage, kiosks, thin clients and other applications.

Measuring 110×118.5×67.3 mm and weighing 0.7 kilograms, the ASRock 4X4 Box-R1000 is based on AMD’s dual-core Ryzen Embedded R1000-series SoC (the R1606G or the R1505G model) with integrated Radeon Vega graphics.

The system can accommodate up to 32 GB of DDR4-2400 memory (using two SO-DIMMs), a 2.5-inch SATA storage device, as well as an M.2-2260 SSD featuring a SATA or PCIe 3.0 x4 interface.

When it comes to connectivity, the ASRock 4X4 Box-R1000 features two GbE connectors (controlled by the Realtek RTL8111G controllers), a Wi-Fi 5 controller (Intel Wireless-AC 3168), three USB 3.0 Type-A ports, two USB 2.0 Type-A connectors, one HDMI, two DisplayPorts, and a 3.5-mm audio connector for headsets.

While the small form-factor (SFF) 4X4 Box-R1000 can be used as a UCFF desktop PC, it is primarily aimed at embedded applications. As a result, it is equipped with a watchdog timer and is rated to run at temperatures of up to 40ºC.
