Computer maker ECS has been selling Liva-branded mini PCs and has expanded its lineup to cover a variety of shapes, sizes and performance scenarios.
ECS unveiled its new Liva-branded mini PCs at Computex, including the company’s first models with 13th-generation Intel Raptor Lake chips.
The ECS Liva Z5 Plus is a compact computer measuring 148 mm x 120 mm x 38 mm (5.8″ x 4.7″ x 1.5″) that supports 15W Intel Raptor Lake-U series processors and up to 64GB of DDR4-3200 memory.
The ECS Liva Z5 Plus also has an M.2 2280 slot for PCIe Gen 4 SSD, an M.2 2230 slot for a wireless network card, a 19V / 90W power supply, and support for up to four displays through a set of ports that include
- 1 DisplayPort
- 2 HDMI
- 1 USB4 Gen 2 (with DisplayPort alternate mode)
- 3 USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A ports
- 2 x 2.5 GbE Ethernet ports
- 1 x 3.5 mm audio jack
ECS also showed the Liva Z5E Plus model, which is nearly identical in most respects, with a taller chassis at 54mm (2.1″) height to make room for an optional 2.5″ hard drive or SSD.
The Liva Z5E Plus also has some extra port space with the option of two COM ports or an HDMI input for video capture applications.
The third ECS model, the ECS Liva Z5F Plus, features a passive cooling system and has 242 mm x 120 mm x 30 mm (9.5 in. x 4.7 in. x 1.2 in.) case dimensions with a heatsink on top for passive cooling.
The Z5F has most of the same features as the Z5E, including support for the optional 2.5-inch drive and COM port, but without the HDMI input option.
ECS has not yet announced pricing or availability for these new products.
