ECS LIVA X2 Mini-PC Review  - PCSTATS.com ECS LIVA X2 Mini-PC Review
Sat, Dec 05 2015 | 9:01AM | Filed under: Computer / SFF PCs| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

When the ECS LIVA Windows Based Mini PC Kit came out in the summer of 2014 it was a pretty nifty little system that ran pretty good considering it only cost $135. Without breaking the bank you could purchase an ECS LIVA, assemble the included hardware and then put on the Windows copy that you wanted to run. It came with everything you needed to get up and running out of the box when it came to hardware, but the initial reviews and consumer feedback was that people wanted the units to be fully assembled and more powerful. ECS heard the feedback and answered with the ECS LIVA X 64GB Mini PC Kit just a few months later that was a larger, fully assembled system that just needed the OS installed. The ECS LIVA and LIVA X models are powered by the 22nm Intel Bay Trail-M SoC, which was a decent part when it came out, but those processors have been succeeded by the Intel 14nm Braswell SoC. Braswell is basically Bay Trail's die shrink and has some new features sprinkled in along with improved efficiency, better thermals and much better graphics thanks to the inclusion of Intel Generation 8 graphics technology. The ECS LIVA series aren't very powerful systems, so we are glad to see that ECS is staying current and putting Intel Braswell N3050 SoC's into the latest LIVA system, the ECS LIVA X2.
