Giada has announced the A51 PC. The A51 is essentially a nettop PC but instead of Intel’s Atom processor, the tiny PC is sporting AMD’s E450 APU. For those who don’t know, the AMD’s Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) combines the CPU and the GPU in one processor. The GPU is a Radeon HD 6320 which supports DirectX11 application including 3D games as well as FullHD 1080p video playback.

With that power, it is a pleasant surprise that the A51 PC only sips 30W of power. Additional specs include a 320GB HDD as well as a USB 3.0 port with the 4 USB 2.0 ports. The A51 also features Gigabit Ethernet, WiFi-N, Bluetooth, plus VGA and HDMI ports.

All this computing power in a Black or White box that is small and unobtrusive anywhere, including in the living room as a Home Theater PC.
