The ECS LIVA Q3D is presented as a new compact mini PC that measures only 7.3 x 7.3 x 3.5cm, and that despite its small dimensions it has a quite capable hardware configuration. The brain of this team is an Intel Jasper Lake chip, it can be configured with different amounts of RAM and storage and can work seamlessly with two screens, thanks to its HDMI and DisplayPort connectors.
The base configuration of the ECS LIVA Q3D integrates a processor Intel Celeron N4500, which adds two cores and two threads at 1.1 GHz-2.8 GHz, has 4 GB of LPDDR4 RAM at 2,400 MHz and comes with 64 GB of eMMC memory. We can configure it with a Intel Celeron N5100which has 4 cores and 4 threads at 1.1 GHz 2.8 GHz, and with a Intel Celeron N6000which maintains the 4 cores and 4 threads but has a maximum frequency of 3.3 GHz.
RAM and storage options hit the ceiling in 8 GB of 2400 MHz LPDDR4 and 128 GB of eMMC storage. The ECS LIVA Q3D comes with a microSD card slot that we can use to expand the available storage, but even if you are going to give it a very basic use, I recommend you opt for the 128 GB version, since otherwise you will find yourself with a capacity very limited, since Windows 11, the operating system that comes pre-installed, already consumes a good amount of space.
For the rest, the ECS LIVA Q3D has a network card that offers Wi-Fi 5 connectivity, it has two USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-A connectors and one USB 2.0 Type-A connector. We still don’t know when it will arrive in Spain, but we do know that this team will be present at the Integrated Systems Europe event, so its launch should be very close. I remind you that this type of equipment is interesting for creating very cheap office PCs that take up very little space.
