We had reviewed Logic Supply's fanless LGX AG150 Cedar Trail-based PC last year. Though a majority of fanless x86-based PCs are based on the anemic Atom platform, there has been a sudden spurt in industrial PCs based on more powerful CPUs. The Aleutia Relia and the Habey BIS-6922 are examples of the general direction in which this market space is moving.

Logic Supply is the latest entrant to the non-Atom based fanless PC market. The LGX ML250 is a Socket G2 (mobile Sandy Bridge / Ivy Bridge)-based high-performance commerical-off-the-shelf computing unit in a silent, compact, fanless chassis. The unit is quite configurable and the following options are available right now:

It is exciting to see fanless computers move to more powerful platforms. With both Intel and AMD realizing the need for reduction in power consumption while maintaining / increasing performance, the future looks exciting for the fanless industrial PC market. Logic Supply's LGX ML250 offers plenty of redesign / reconfiguration options compared to other fanless industrial PCs and starts at less than $1000. It is a welcome addition to the family of fanless off-the-shelf PCs.
