Mini PC's Time

[Date] 2016-10-13 18:11:30   [Author]   [Come From]www.minicase.net   REALAN   Font Size:Small Medium Large

The PC industry after rapid developing, is gradually declining. According to market research firm Gartner released the next few years, global equipment shipments forecast data show that in 2016, global PC shipments fell 3% year on year, while in last year's report fell 0.75%. As a result, PC industry is already a sunset industry, and PC sales performance seems to corroborate the validity of this argument. But what the truth is, let us take a closer look.

From the market point of view, the current PC market there is considerable stock market, that is still a considerable base of users in the use of very old PC, which means that the market still has a potential replacement for PC needs, after all, users still need it with office , Learning, games, computing and other tasks. How to further meet the PC in the intelligent, interactive, lightweight and other aspects of the requirements, it is the future of PC products, innovation challenges, it is an opportunity.

As a notebook evolved from the desktop, from the beginning has been the concern, as opposed to mobile inconvenience, bulky desktop, the emergence of notebooks to the mobile office, light application, with it, anytime, anywhere to complete the office, design, drawing and other needs, so its development is so smooth, and desktop computers together prop up the PC market one day. Today, the traditional PC industry comes to the innovation period.

The traditional desktop computer market after years of development, the market has been saturated for many years, the face of increasingly sluggish PC market, PC chip industry Intel has not stopped the process innovation, technological innovation, semiconductor technology from 22nm to 14nm and NUC is the abbreviation of the next generation of computer (Next Unit of Computing), the board size is only 10 * 10cm, the product size is only the palm of your hand. This mini-computer both desktop processing power and laptop portable, less power consumption and so on. As high hopes for Intel's NUC products, it is necessary to analyze its product development ideas. The mini-computer is based on solving the following problems:
1. Overcapacity: With the progress of recent years, the hardware production process and software optimization, the performance of desktop computers have excess functionality. Most of the PCs use only 20% of the performance, which is equivalent to killing a chicken with a chopper, a waste of effective resources;
2. Space is relatively large: The traditional desktop on the main desk, both space, not beautiful;
3. Power consumption: For enterprises, it is a considerable expenditure costs. 4. Mobile inconvenience: Due to large and cumbersome chassis restrictions, to move the computer to create a certain degree of difficulty;

Since the introduction of Intel NUC, Gigabyte also develops their own mini-computer Brix series, for the mini-computer market with a fire, with the market for mini-computer attention and recognition, the heat rise, as to Mini itx product origin Realan, also launched in 2014 based on the concept of Mr. NUC products, from low-end J1900 to high-end i7 version of the product line. From CES and Taipei computer show , the market for the emergence of mini-computer is still recognized. Mini pc production has its inevitability, its advantage is obvious:
1. Low energy consumption: Mini computer CPU can be J1900, I3, I5, I7 and other different configurations, using the U version of the CPU, this design is conducive to control energy consumption, the machine's energy consumption does not exceed 30W, compared to the traditional Desktop computers, power-saving effect is very obvious;
2. From the output side, the display interface can support HDMI, VGA and other interfaces, and can support 4K display output (in HDMI mode), greatly expanding the user's actual use needs;
3. Mute effect: As the mini-computer uses a fanless design, and the fan is the noise of the device, so that the mini pc with a quiet effect, to the user a static posthumous use of space;
4. The small appearance: it will be placed in the living room to do HTPC, so small and exquisite products is beautiful on any table, at the same time, for the office, is also very suitable choice; 5. The appearance of fine: aluminum body, together with the cover of the piano paint, smooth and delicate, both in the office or living room; 6. Wide range of applications: Due to its advantages, it can be used to replace the advantages of ITX small host, IPC, video surveillance, toll factory system, monitoring security, digital signage, office learning, HTPC, retail industry and others

Needless to say, although the mini-computer has the above advantages, but the mini-PC market as a rookie in the market to further improve the degree of acceptance also need to solve the following aspects:
1.The desire is not high: the existing PC use is considerable, but for the upgrading of the computer is not a much-needed;
2. The misunderstanding of the mini-computer: to customers the most problem encountered is the computer cooling problem, Realan is based on Mini ITX chassis manufacturers cut into the mini-computer industry, in solving the heat problem can be said to be handy, while using the heat Excellent fruit of the aluminum material, the use of passive cooling principle, a good solution to the heat problem.
3. Product positioning: From the concept of mini-computer, its positioning is used to replace the traditional desktop computer, but for the product price range, it cannot give customers a shine of feeling;
4. A high degree of product integration: At present, most of the mini-computer is in the form of barebones, CPU curing to the motherboard, only the hard disk and memory available, but it also avoids the hardware compatibility issues, reduce the probability of problems, availability, the user, this is a good news.

MacArthur has been poetic in the speech declared "veterans die, only slowly withered it," the rapid development of the Internet today, it can be said, PC market is not dead, only a new generation to replace the old generation, but the mini-computer Of the host, it now appears, still need time, hope this day, not too far!
