Realtek RTD1195 products are now shipping

If you visit this blog regularly you might have read about the new Realtek RTD1195 chipset – I was one of the first to mention this back in May.
And it looks like I will be one of the first to actually test one – and it’s not from one of the manufacturers confirmed their RTD1195 products : Mele or Mede8er.

It’s actually from a newcomer called Eweat.
I will be receiving their Eweat EW902 item in a few days and I will be posting the test results here on the blog.

If you want me to test something specific, please leave a reply to this post.

Next Minix product will run Windows 8.1!

News surfaced today about the next Minix product – and it is NOT RK3288 based!
If you watch Chinese sites you might have noticed that some have “for sale” a RK3288 product called “Minix Neo X9” – that’s just a scam, do not buy it.

But be ready for Minix Neo Z64, the newest Minix mini PC (details below).

– LAN: 10/100 (not Gigabit, sadly)
– SD Card
