As a part of the lead as much as CES 2021, Akasa made a few fascinating bulletins associated to its lineup of DIY fanless circumstances and a second household of RGB lighting equipment.
We’ve coated Akasa’s Turing fanless circumstances intimately earlier – beginning off as a whole reimagination of a fanless Bean Canyon NUC (delivering glorious leads to our overview), Akasa additionally created the Turing FX primarily based on the identical design for the Frost Canyon NUC. Now, they’ve set their sights on one of many in style consumer-focused Ryzen-based mini-PCs out there – the Asus PN50.
The Asus PN50, primarily based on the Ryzen 4000-series cell APUs (Renoirs with a TDP of 15W), has a bodily footprint much like that of the NUCs (with a ~4in. x ~4in. motherboard). The I/Os are a bit completely different in comparison with the NUCs, however Akasa may simply rework that side of the Turing design to rapidly flip round a chassis able to working the PN50 with out followers. Given the success that the Akasa Turing had with the Bean Canyon NUCs sporting a processor with a sustained package deal energy consumption of 30W, it’s possible that cooling the PN50 board (sporting a processor with a configurable TDP between 10W and 25W) needs to be a stroll within the park. That mentioned, we are going to reserve our last judgement for a hands-on overview.
In different information, Akasa can be following up on their VEGAS sequence of RGB lighting equipment (CPU followers, case followers, and a RGB controller card) with a brand new SOHO sequence. It is a new set of addressable RGB (aRGB) merchandise together with case followers, LED lighting strips, a CPU cooler, and a controller card.
Akasa claims that the SOHO sequence case fan (SOHO AR) features a redesigned sickle blade design and rotor expertise to enhance airflow and cooling effectivity in comparison with its earlier case followers. The controller card ties all these equipment collectively with a purpose to create a unified RGB resolution for avid gamers trying to jazz up their system look. The important thing to any set of RGB lighting equipment is compatibility with functions from completely different distributors – Akasa signifies that the SOHO sequence aRGB controller and equipment are appropriate with functions from GIGABYTE, ASUS, Razer, ASRock, and MSI.
