Based on Intel’s N100, a French startup claims to have created the smallest fanless PC in the world, and it is shockingly affordable even in red.

Intel’s N100, a French startup claims to have created the smallest fanless PC in the world:For less than $250, you can support the next-generation Bleu Jour small PC.

In order to construct the most recent iteration of its KUBB micro PC, Bleu Jour, the manufacturer of some of the best mini PCs to ever cross our desks, is looking for significant interest from backers.

The company claims that this 8 cm x 8 cm fanless PC is the world’s smallest fanless PC running an Intel N100 CPU. The company claims that the gadget is completely silent. It also has up to 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM and up to 1TB of NVMe M.2 SSD storage. Along with the four-core, 3.4GHz CPU, this is also included.

With the release of its 12cm x 12cm cubic KUBB small PC in 2014, the company first gained notoriety. Since then, it has released a number of well-liked successors, including the superb Bleujour Kubb Gen 8 and the Gen 11.

Why the most recent KUBB Mini is entirely silent
The KUBB Mini is in its last phases of development. It was first conceptualised in January 2023, and a prototype was produced in March. In August, it underwent thermal testing, and in September, a post-production sample was created.

It is currently attempting to gather more than $52,000 (or $43,204, to be precise) in order to put its most recent prototype into production. You may support the project and reserve a device for less than $250 (exactly £203), with delivery scheduled for December 2023.

Bleu Jour established since 2002, in Toulouse (France) is a French I.T. manufacturer, specialises in Mini PC,” Blue Jour wrote on its Indiegogo page. “The goal of our crowdfunding campaign is to increase brand recognition and forge relationships with computer enthusiasts. The bulk production of our small PC has begun. We will begin shipping in December 2023, and throughout this time we will continue to improve the product.

A microSD card storage unit, two USB 3.2 ports, USB-C, two HDMI 2.0 connectors, an ethernet port, and a 3.5mm audio jack are also included in the most recent KUBB Mini. It supports Bluetooth and Wi-Fi 6 connections, and it can connect to two monitors at 4K resolution at 60Hz. Additionally, the device comes in six different colours: graphite, white, red, bronze, orange, and blue.

Beyond its size, one of its most notable features, in the manufacturer’s opinion, is that it is completely silent. Even the quietest PCs make 40dB of noise, compared to 20dB for small PCs. Heat is reportedly transported via the chassis of the KUBB Mini, which results in a noise level of 0dB.
