Product Features:

Performance at Low Power Consumption

The 64 bit Dual Core CPU (Atom D525) and 80 cores from the DirectX 11 GPU (ATI 5430, 512 MB GDDR3) offer your applications the performance needed at the lowest possible power consumption. The ATI Stream Technology allows applications like Internet browsers or media players to use also the GPU and thus improves the performance significantly.

Moreover, the fact that it supports up to 2 x 4GB DDR3 memory allows it to fulfill the hardware requirements of the latest operating systems.


Passive Cooling – Inaudible Operation

The MC001 is passively cooled to enable silent operation while maintaining the hardware at optimal temperature. Even operating in the most noise-sensitive environments, either the living room or bedroom, it won't be heard.

Living Room Design

MC001 features a small form factor to fit in a 1.5L aluminum chassis with piano black finishing and brushed silver polish. With a thickness of merely 4 cm, the exquisite MC001 fits elegantly anywhere.


Multi-Port Interface

MC001 is equipped with a 4-in-1 memory card reader, two USB 3.0 ports, five USB 2.0 ports, an HDTV interface and 7.1 analog outputs to offer the utmost connectivity.
