Voyo V1 Apollo Lake N4200 & N3450 Mini PC’s Coming

Voyo V1 Apollo Lake N4200 & N3450 Mini PC’s Coming

Voyo are one of the first to release some Mini PC’s based on the new Apollo Lake. There are two models, one with what’s got a Pentium  N4200 with a maximum clock speed of 2.5Ghz, Intel HD graphics 505 GPU max frequency 750Mhz.

And the Apollo Lake Celeron N3450 version with a maximum turbo of 2.2Ghz and an Intel HD graphics 500 GPU clock of 700Mhz maximum clock rate. (This one will be mostly used as a tablet chipset)

Both share the same design and it comes with 4GB pre-installed, but looking at the press images it takes a SODIMM, so you should be able to add 8GB or a 16GB stick. It has a fan for active cooling, 3 x USB 3.0 ports, 1Gbit lan port, wireless AC and MicroSD card slot. Mini HDMI for up to 4k60hz output

Storage is 32GB of eMMC storage and a M.2 128GB of Sata3 SSD. The M.2 SSD can be upgrade to up to 512GB of storage.

I’ve ordered one, of the N4200’s ones to test out and review. I’m interested to see just how much better the Apollo late with a 6W TDP will fair again the old X7 Z87X0 Atoms. My guess is somewhere just below the performance of an Intel Core M3, so it should run quite well.

  1. The Voyo Vbook N4200 version seems interesting, have a look! http://www.gearbest.com/laptops/pp_589983.html

  2. What screen and keyboard can I use with this machine? Does it compatible with these items below? If they are not compatible, can you please recommend?

    1. Screen LED-Lit Monitor Full HD 1920×1080 – https://www.asus.com/Monitors/MB169BPlus/

    2. MoKo Folding Bluetooth Keyboar – https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01EHSLFAY/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A2VT4H683M5NNA

    3. Logitech keys to go – http://www.logitech.com/en-us/product/keys-to-go?crid=1221

    Can I install Ubuntu in this machine for dual boots?

    • Those will work, any monitor with HDMI any keyboard or BT keyboard mouse etc. You should be able to do dual OS I think. Mine will arrive next week.

      • Thanks! Please keep us updated how you get on with this machine!

        Oh btw, it has no bluetooth in it – how can you use a bluetooth mouse and keyboard?

        • It should have BT combo wifi card. If not use a BT USB dongle in one of the 3 x USB 3.0 ports.

  3. Only one Passmark rating for the N4200 so far, but it looks encouraging compared to Z8300, especially as it uses DDR3.

    I reckon Intel were selling Z8300 at low prices to keep a foothold in the tablet market and use up surplus fab capacity, without cannibalising lucrative M3 sales.

    Trouble is Z8x00 is too weak for mid range, and M3 prices too high for most so a decent mid range alternative is needed.

    BTW Thanks Chris for all the work you put into this site and the Youtube channel, it’s much appreciated. 🙂

    • Looks much better, guess I’ll find out when mine ships. Should be 30th of November I’m told.

  4. My wife’s Toshiba A215 seems to have died.

    So I’m thinking to get one these small boxes instead of a new laptop.

    As I will have to pay taxes when it gets to Brazil, it can’t be too expensive.

    Would this Voyo be a good option or is there any otherI should go for?

    • All depends on what you need it for. If it’s just light work it should be fine, but I won’t know till I get mine and full test it out. I’ve ordered the N4200 version, should have it in a week or two.

    Was also close to pull the trigger on the V1 a few minutes ago, but then I’ve noticed that they have good ol’ DDR3 built in.
    The most potential for a huge speed boost over the Z87x0 will be left on the table without DDR4, i assume…
    Anyway, it seems to be upgradeable but it puts a fair dent in the price/value ratio 🙁

    Maybe i’m just gonna wait for the UP2

  6. That RAM press shot…

    The M3 has also a TDP of 6W, right? My guess is, the N4200 will run not much faster then the Z87x0. Intel is just selling us the same old stuff with a 500% price increase.
    My guess is, the M3 will have much better performance then the N4200.

    • Yeah somewhere between the Z8700 and Core M3. But since it has a fan I think it will be close to the Core M3. All depends on the SODIMM speed too I guess.

      • Thanks! Please keep us updated how you get on with this machine!

        • Keep an on the site and YouTube channel Tuesday / Wens I expect to receive this one. (N4200 version)
