Lets take a moment to forget the technical nonsense. Seriously. Besides, we only really know the broad strokes about Mullins, AMD’s next-gen ultra-low voltage APU. Instead lets just gaze upon the tiny wonder that is the Nano PC for a bit and soak it all in.
This reference design from the Sunnyvale company packs enough power to run Windows 8.1 pretty seamlessly and even get in a quick game of FIFA 14 at 1080p. Inside, in addition to a Mullins chip, is a 256GB SSD, a camera, Bluetooth, WiFI and a DockPort connector. And, it’s really not much larger or thicker than a Note 3 – it’s a pretty much a marvel of engineering.
It’s the last of those things is pretty important, since it allows you to connect to a tiny breakout box with HDMI and USB ports. Obviously you’ll need one of those to connect it to a TV, which the Nano PC is designed to sit atop.
Here’s hoping that a company or two picks up on the design and starts making absurdly thing machines of their own.
