BeeBox bee, because we wanted to create something that was small, quiet, fast and powerful all at the same time. In order to make the exterior incarnate the characteristics of a hard working bee, black stripes and curves were applied, but the real challenge lied in how to contain all that power in such an ity bity space. As anyone may point out, size is normally contradictory to power, performance, dissipation and having more features. Luckily, we had Intel® N3000 Series to go with our uniquely designed motherboard for building the tiny yet powerful core parts.
After countless hardware tailoring and tweaks, Beebox turned out to be the only model in the segment to pack serious processing power for supporting 4K playback and triple monitor with a DisplayPort and two HDMI ports, and is also the only one to support dual channel memory. To add icing on the cake, Beebox is also the world’s first NUC to come with a Type-C USB interface, featuring a reversible design so that connectors may fit either way, plus it supports 3.0 ampere fast device charging, and its durability has been enhanced so that it may withstand over ten thousand plugs and removals. Additionally, this little fellow comes with an 802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0 module, and may serve as a wireless access point. Lastly, to add a cherry on top, ASRock has also prepared a tiny remote controller so that users may operate their HTPC just like an ordinary telly.
This looks like a competing product to the successful ECS LIVA and LIVA X.
