Google Reveals Chromebit, the Chrome OS Computer in an HDMI Dongle

/ 8 years ago


Google is entering the HDMI stick computer market with the Chromebit. It made the announcement in a blog post about its growing range of Chromebook devices which, like the Chromebit, run Google’s proprietary Chrome operating system.

The Chromebit, built by Asus, is a slim HDMI dongle – “Smaller than a candy bar,” as Google describes it – that plugs directly into a monitor or TV. It is powered by a quad-core Rockchip 3288 ARCM Cortext-A17 processor, and has an ARM Mali 760 GPU, 16GB of storage, 2GB RAM, USB port, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, and Bluetooth 4.0.

Google expected, as with Chromebooks, that other manufacturers will develop their own Chromebits. The device, which is due out this Summer priced $100, will compete with Intel’s Compute Stick, a slightly larger HDMI system which will hit stores this April for $150.
