Another day another Rockchip RK3566 based device with an unnamed mini PC/thin client running Ubuntu 20.04, equipped with 2-4GB RAM, 16GB-32GB eMMC flash, HDMI video outputs and VGA, Gigabit Ethernet, optional wireless module, etc. …
- SoC – 1.8GHz Rockchip RK3566 Quad-Core Cortex-A55 Processor with Arm Mali-G52 EE GPU, 0.8 TOPS NPU/AI Accelerator
- System Memory – 2GB to 4GB DDR3
- Storage – 16GB or 32GB eMMC Flash
- Video output
- HDMI up to 1920×1080 (odd because RK3566 supports 3840×2160 natively, so probably an error)
- VGA up to 1920×1080
- Audio – 3.5mm audio out jack, 3.5mm microphone jack
- Networking – Gigabit Ethernet RJ45 port
- USB – 4 USB 2.0 ports, 1 USB 3.0 port
- Miscellaneous – Power button, auto power-on support
- Power – 12V/1A via DC power socket
- Dimensions – 105 x 105 x 25mm
If the screenshot above is legit, the motherboard is called “Jieyun Zhilian T50 Board”. I couldn’t find anything on the T50 board, but the Shenzhen Jieyun Zhilian Technology company specializing in thin clients, and the J50 thin client has the exact same case and port assignment as the mini PC described above, except that it comes with a 2.0 GHz quad-core Cortex-A53 processor.
We’ve already covered other Rockchip RK3566/RK3568 mini PCs running Ubuntu or Android with products like Zidoo M6 or Firefly EC-R3568PC, and one thing for the T50 mini PC above is its price, at least for the type Linux Device Manager, As Is sells for $89 with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of flash memory (no WiFi), and up to $109 with 4 GB of RAM, 16 GB of flash memory and WiFi. But that should probably be avoided by most people, because the Aliexpress seller “Thin Client Store” doesn’t provide much information, no links, and even tells customers to “Pease (sic.) contact seller (sic. ) for more details, before you place the order”. I did this yesterday, but haven’t heard back yet. It’s also not 100% clear if it’s a thin client preloaded with software such as Citrix HDX, VMware PCoIP or RemoteFX, or simply a mini PC running Ubuntu 20.04.
