8d163df9026e6b1cBasic module hardware

All components of the Revo Build mini computer are housed in a small case measuring 13.5 x 13.5 x 6.7 cm.

It houses a quad-core Intel Pentium N3700 processor, 2 GB of RAM and a 32 GB eMMC drive.

The performance of this configuration, unfortunately, is very weak and in the PCMark 8 Creative benchmark, this mini-PC scores only 1264 points.

The results of running the 3DMark Cloud Gate graphics test are also not impressive: 1903 points at 8-9 fps. Both of these results are among the worst in our respective rankings.

Interfaces

The interfaces available on board are also just a standard set. On the front of the Revo Build, only the «Power» button can be found. On the left side of the case are one USB 3.0 port, a headphone jack and an SDHC/XC card reader. On the right side there is a Kensington lock. On the rear panel there was room for two USB 3.0 ports, DisplayPort and HDMI outputs, as well as a LAN port.

Innovation

a__7_-afa8ee369d4cad4a

The innovative interface mentioned in the title is located on the top side of the case, under a removable cover. Thanks to it, the user gets a theoretical opportunity to expand the basic module with three additional ones. The choice of modules is as follows: with two microphones and two speakers, with a discrete graphics card, with an additional hard drive, as well as a power bank.

Nevertheless, even today, almost a year after the device was launched on the market, it is very difficult to find these modules for sale on the European market: on Amazon, for example, only an expensive expansion in the form of a 2TB hard drive is available. The remaining modules, with a certain amount of luck, can be found on the American market.

Alternative

An alternative to Acer’s Revo Build could be HP’s Elite Slice mini PC, which was unveiled at this year’s IFA. Just like Revo Build, it allows you to expand the main unit with additional modules. Elite Slice components are much more powerful.

The best alternative currently available for purchase is the Asus Vivo Mini UN65H-M043M. Its overall score in our mini-PC rating is 20 points higher, although the price is one and a half times higher — about 300$.
