Risun D05 mini PC powered by unusual Rockchip CPU

rk3068Risun is another of the mini PC brands you may not have heard about before, but it’s managed to put together a very unusual USB stick-style mini PC called the Risun D05.

The mini PC features the standard HDMI plug-style chassis but is powered by a Rockchip RK3068 SoC CPU. Cnx-software found this one online but hasn’t been able to find much information on the chip. However, according to Chinese-language site PCOnline, the chip is basically an RK3066 but with added 3G wireless support, which means it’s designed to go in smartphones and tablets to make data and phone calls.

It’s certainly an unusual choice and it’s not clear why Risun would’ve chosen this SoC CPU over the more common (and you’d think cheaper) RK3066 option.

As it is, the D05 features 1GB of RAM and 4GB of flash storage, preloaded with Android 4.1.1 (Jelly Bean) operating system. There’s no Bluetooth, but you appear to get 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, according to Risun’s Alibaba store page for the device. You get a MicroSD card slot, good for up to 32GB per card and there’s a Type-A USB2.0 host port. The microUSB port appears to be for power only.

Given the similarities between the RK3066 and RK3068 SoC CPUs, we’d expect this to perform similarly to any other RK3066-based mini PC.
