ASRock VisionX mini PCs coming to Europe

by on18 February 2015

Killer specs, premium pricing

ASRock’s VisionX series of mini PCs is coming to Europe, with impressive spec sheets and relatively high prices.

So far we’ve come across three SKUs, with prices starting at €613 for the entry level Vision HT 421D with a Core i5-4210M, 8GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD, sans discrete graphics.

It’s a relatively good spec, but it gets better. There’s an alternative SKU with 1TB mechanical storage and Radeon HD 8850M 1GB graphics shipping for €661. Another even more potent version version, this time in silver, comes with a Core i5-4210M, 4GB RAM, 128GB SSD and Radeon R9 M270X 2GB graphics. It’s already shipping in Germany and the price is €654.

We should also point out that ASRock has a few more SKUs, including cheaper models based on Core i3 Haswell silicon, as well a flagship version with a Core i7-4712MQ processor and 256GB SSD. However, we haven't found them in Europe, at least not yet.

Don’t be fooled by the mini PC moniker. All three versions ship with optical DVD RW drives, six USB 3.0 ports, Gigabit LAN, eSATA 6Gbps, S/PDIF, one MHSL port, wireless and Bluetooth 4.0.

The aluminium chassis measures 200x200x70mm, and is obviously available in silver and black. ASRock is also throwing in an MCE remote controller in the box. In terms of appearance, well, it’s a bit Appleish to say the least, just like some of Streacom's mini-ITX chassis.
