[CEBIT 2012] Asrock hints an Ivy bridge refresh of current mini-pc’s is underway
Today at CEBIT, Asrock gave a us an interesting insight on the future of their current HTPC segment. The plan is to do an overhaul on the current i7, i5 and i3 compliant models and boost them with the upcoming Intel Ivy bridge architecture.
Asrock admits receiving complaints of pushing the HTPC trend too much, resulting in speculated dodgy performance and reliability. Asrock’s respresentative states that all bugs of the first gen lineup were taken care of. The new (soon-to-be-announced) Ivy bridge HTPC’s from Asrock will feature unprecedented performance gains with double the power on graphics.
Asrock made a statement saying these HTPCs are no longer restricted to the living room or hobby room for the avid tech geek, but are finding their ways into the office space. Main reasons are their small form factor making them unobtrusive, yet very potent machines for Office applications. Without the high power consumption and noise level of regular desktop PCs.
