BMW’s design group DesignworksUSA announced that it was undertaking another design project for a computer company. Previous designs, like Thermaltake’s Level 10 case, proved to be a stunning success. This time, the designers are bending pencil to paper for ASRock, who commissioned the company to help create the M8.
Designed to be a small form factor PC, the ASRock M8 was created to help show off the design of the motherboard inside – no real surprise, considering ASRock’s product portfolio and intended market for the design. Magnetic side panels can quickly be popped on and off to make changes or add a drive, while a knob placed front and center features an integrated OLED screen.
This “A-Command” knob can control and display various system stats, like the system’s workinig temperatures, fan speeds, etc.
While most of the specifications are completely up in the air at this point, ASRock did offer that the new systems would include 802.11ac wireless networking, Bluetooth 4.0 and a discrete Creative sound card.
As yet, there’s no word as to how much this tiny titan will inevitably cost, but we might see more details at next week at Computex.
