At the annual CeBIT rade show in Germany, ECS showcase the 2 newest members to its LIVA class of tiny PCs. The new models are the ECS LIVA X2 and ECS LIVA Core.


The LIVA X2 is the new member of the LIVA X family. The LIVA X2 spots a new processor, the INTEL SoC Braswell-M (LIVA X used the Bay Trail-M). Both LIVA X and LIVA X2 has 4GB DDR3L on board with Gigabit LAN and Wireless combo card.

Instead of using mSATA for SSD on the LIVA X, X2 uses the M2 for SSD. The LIVA X2 also spots 3 X USB 3.0 ports compared to 1 X USB 3 + 2 x USB 2.0 on the predecessor. Both uses the eMMC 32G or 64G as storage. Both ahs 1 HDMI / 1 VGA output port.

As for the higher end model the LIVA CORE, it uses the Intel SoC Core M and has 4GB DDR3L. It has GbE, wireless Combo with 802.11ac and BT4.0 support. As for expansion it suppot 1 M.2 for SSD of up to 1TB. It has 4 USB 3.0 ports with 1 HDMI 2.0 / 1 HDMI 1.4 out put port.

As for the design,  the LIVA X2 departs from the traditional and looks more stylish with a glossy finish. I am just wondering will the retail product comes with a BT keyboard and a USB stick for drivers installation or does it still come with the usual CDROM.
