ACEMAGIC S1 Mini-PC features Intel Alder Lake N95 and LCD screen

ACEMAGIC, previously known as ACEMAGICIAN, specializes in designing compact PCs built around Intel or AMD hardware. Their product lineup encompasses a variety of designs, but the company is best recognized for their distinctive trapezoid-shaped systems featuring magnetically attachable side panels, which simplify system maintenance. Additionally, they incorporate a physical switch for adjusting TDP settings.

In a departure from the norm in the Mini-PC market, ACEMAGIC has introduced a new concept with their “S1” system—a built-in LCD screen. This screen offers essential information about CPU operation, including TDP settings, fan noise levels, and CPU load. Furthermore, users can personalize the screen by selecting themes from a library available through the accompanying software.

One aspect that lacks clarity is whether this screen functions independently of a Windows application running in the background. This issue is reminiscent of graphics cards equipped with screens that require dedicated software to provide data to the screen. Regrettably, there are no reviews of the system available at this time.

The ACEMAGIC S1 is powered by an Intel N95 processor from the 12th Gen Core Alder Lake-N series. This CPU features four cores and four threads, making it clear that it’s not positioned as a high-end option. Furthermore, the CPU operates within a limited 20W TDP envelope and a 3.4 GHz frequency. Overall, it appears that the company is targeting this system as a network component rather than a dedicated standalone system.

The side panel of the ACEMAGIC S1 features a magnetic detachable design and offers two M.2 slots, facilitating SSD upgrades. It’s worth noting that one of the two slots utilizes the SATA protocol, while the other uses the NVMe protocol. The memory is onboard and cannot be upgraded. In terms of connectivity, the host includes two Gigabit network ports, two HDMI 2.0 video output interfaces (supporting a maximum of 4K@60Hz), two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, and 3.5mm audio interfaces.

The ACEMAGIC S1 is attractively priced, with the option sporting 16GB of memory and 1TB storage retailing at $269, with shipments starting on October 1st. The option with 512GB storage is currently unavailable, as is the option without memory and storage, but the former is anticipated to cost $239.
