A new mini PC has been made available to purchase this week in the form of the MIPS Creator CI20 single board computer that is now available to purchase for $65 and is capable of running the Quake 3 game engine at 1080p while drawings less than 2.5 watts of power.
Even though the new MIPS Creator CI20 development board is more expensive than the hugely popular Raspberry Pi mini PC. It does include a number of features such as wireless connectivity and GPIO, UART, I2C, ADC, and other connectors.
The MIPS Creator CI20 has been designed specifically for developers and is fitted with a dual-core 1.2 GHz Ingenic JZ4780 MIPS32-based processor supported by PowerVR SGX540 graphics and 1GB of RAM.
Other features of the MIPS Creator CI20 include a 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, 10/100 Ethernet connectivity together with a handy SD card slot for further storage expansion when required.
Ports include a HDMI output, and USB and USB OTG and the mini PC is shipped with the Debian 7 Linux operating system already installed. But the mini PC will also support Google’s Android 4.4 KitKat operating system as well as other distributions of Linux-based systems.
