Habey's Fanless Nettop Quietly Supports 2560x1600 Streaming

Habey USA opted to pair a dual-core Intel Atom processor with Nvidia's Ion 2 GT218 GPU to give its latest nettop that old-school one-two punch. We say "old-school" because all-in-one processors like AMD's Llano platform and Intel's Sandy Bridge architecture have emerged as the popular solution for HTPCs and other embedded applications, but by going with a low power Atom chip, Habey was able to ditch the fan and use dual-heatpipes to build a noiseless, compact system.

The BIS-6564 comes housed in Habey's ICEFIN case. Fan failure is one concern that's obviously negated by using heatpipes, and Habey promises the system will remain operable in temperatures up to 60C. Other features include:

  • 4GB DDR3 memory
  • Two internal mini-PCI Express expansion slots for Wi-Fi, SSD, or 3G/4G
  • Two SATA 3Gbps ports
  • HDMI and VGA connectors
  • S/PDIF
  • GbE LAN
  • Three USB 3.0 ports
  • Supports Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows Embedded, and Linux

None of that is going to blow anyone away at first glance, though Habey says its little PC is capable of displaying full 1080p broadcasts and supports up to a 2560x1600 screen resolution via HDMI, as well as dual independent display output.

You'll have to contact Habey for pricing based on your exact configuration.
