MC001-BD Entertainment Center with Blu-ray Player 4x

The ARCTIC MC001 has more to offer than a PC or a multi media streamer – it’s a refined entertainment center which combines both devices. With the MC001, you can spice up your leisure time with movies, music, TV and radio programs and enjoy all sorts of web-based activities ranging from checking emails, reading news, shopping online, social networking and many more. Be inspired by the unlimited possibilities that an MC001 offers you.

Performance at Low Power Consumption

The 64 bit Dual Core CPU (Atom D525) in combination with 4GB DDR3 RAM (3.25 GB operating system, 0.75 GB RAMDisk) and 80 cores from the DirectX 11 GPU (ATI 5430, 512 MB GDDR3) offer your applications the performance needed at the lowest possible power consumption. The 32 bit Windows consumes fewer resources and offers lower loading time than its 64 bit counterpart while performing at the same level for most applications. Thanks to a special software, the RAM above 3.25 GB is used by Windows as a cache.

The ATI Stream Technology allows applications like Internet browsers or media players to use also the GPU and thus improves the performance significantly.

strong>Out-of-Box Experience

A full plug-and-play experience is guaranteed thanks to the pre-installed Windows 7 Home Premium, fully configured and optimized for multimedia use. The MC001 is building the heart of your entertainment at home – right out of the box.
