AMD Project Quantum now available for download
Can’t buy one? Then print one.
This is an update to our story from November. A fan-made complete 3D design for the never released AMD product codenamed Project Quantum. Even a few years since its announcement, some fans really liked the idea so much that it ended up making their own version.
As a reminder, the Quantum concept PC was designed for AMD Fiji GPU series. It was supposed to be a full PC with a custom liquid cooler. This was no doubt an ambitious project, but it was never made in large numbers. AMD only mentioned they made several of these systems for their own employees, so chances are one of them will eventually show up on eBay, but that still wasn’t the case as far as we know.
Redditor “stand_up_g4m3r” took the challenge of making his own Quantum. He just released full 3D STL files for everyone to download. Officially, this project is not supported by AMD, which might be important to note because Quantum design is patented. Hopefully though, AMD will see this as an issue.
With STL files now released, anyone can just print the parts themselves. But be aware that this fan made project is neither an easy nor cheap to make. It was built around existing hardware such as ASRock X300W STX Mini-PC. Advanced modifications to liquid cooling are also required. Of course, nothing should stop fans from just putting a Raspberry Pi inside and just enjoying how it looks, but that’s far from what Quantum was supposed to be.
There are 8 files in total, for each part. The files can now be downloaded and previewed on any STL compatible website.
