We found a new micro PC on AliExpress called XCY-X66. It surprises us this time with its small size and the inclusion of four 2.5GbE Ethernet ports.
A PC that fits in the palm of your hand with its dimensions of only 75 x 75 x 52 mm. In addition, thanks to the Intel Celeron N5105 processor that integrates we will be able to move any program of daily use without problems, since it is quite more powerful than the previous generation Celeron J4125. The difference between this pocket PC and other variants comes from its four 2.5GbE Ethernet ports controlled by the Intel i225V chip, ideal for network routing functions.
This is a mini PC suitable for office, industry, multimedia playback and web browsing among many other things thanks to its unique hardware.
Integrated in the motherboard of the XCY-X66 is an Intel Celeron N5105 processor, manufactured in 10 nm. This chip is a Quad Core capable of reaching 2.9 GHz in turbo and in which we find an Intel UHD Graphics GPU with support for h.265 and VP9 video playback with resolutions up to 4K60fps. Cooling is active, as we have a fan that draws air through the sides of the case in the lower area.
The RAM memory soldered on the board and not expandable is 8 GB LPDDR4X, while with respect to storage we have an SSD M.2 2242 with 128/256 GB. We also have an SD card reader compatible with capacities up to 128 GB or more.
This small low power PC does not indicate if it includes for wireless connectivity, perhaps only focuses on wired network ports. In terms of ports we find on the perimeter of the case four Gigabit 2.5GB network connectors, two USB 3.0, USB-C 3.0 data, USB-C power supply and HDMI 2.0 video output allowing video resolutions up to 4K @ 60fps.
The supported operating system is Windows 11 Pro, we can also install Linux distributions and includes a small external power supply that connects to USB Type-C.
