Giada i35G Mini PC with NVIDIA Graphics

Giada has released its newest nettop, or small form factor personal computer as the name goes, one that combines the processing performance of an Intel processor with the video capabilities of an NVIDIA GPU.

The central processing unit is a member of Intel's Atom D2500 series, while the graphics processing unit (GPU) is GT 610. Backed by 2 GB of DDR3 RAM (random access memory), these two chips perform pretty much every sort of operation a business or multimedia system can be expected to carry out. That includes high-definition graphics, up to and including 1080p Full HD video playback. Digital signage, brand promotion, digital menu boards, all should be an easy task for the nettop. Physically, the Giada i35G, as the nettop is called, measures 192 x 155 x 26 mm, which is the same as 7.55 x 6.10 x 1.02 inches. That small package somehow holds not just the CPU, GPU and RAM, but also a hard drive disk 320 GB, or an Intel SSD if prospective buyers decide it is worth it to pay extra for speed.

The rest of the spec sheet is filled by connectivity and I/O options, and it isn't precisely short. The USB 2.0 ports number five on their own, and the connection panel also boasts a card reader, one Gigabit LAN port, a line-out SPDIF, a VGA output, an HDMI connector and the obligatory DC-in jack. Finally, Giada tossed in two audio jacks (speaker/headphone out and mic in), 802.11n and Bluetooth. All in all, the small nettop consumes 35W of energy, a third of what a random light bulb needs. The price is of $274, or 221 Euro.

“The i35G keeps power consumption to a minimum at 35W, while still having the flexibility to provide high performance solutions for digital signage for advertising, hospitality, brand promotion and digital menu boards as well as for consumers looking for a compact work station that also allows for light gaming,” Giada says.
