Following the success of its Edge HD series mini PCs, Sapphire has launched a fourth version, the Edge HD4. This time around, Sapphire decided to go for Intel's platform, rather than AMD APU seen in the Edge HD3.

The Edge HD4 is based on pretty much the same chassis as the Edge HD3 that we had a chance to review here, but instead of AMD's E-450 APU, the Edge HD4 features Intel's dual-core Celeron 847 CPU clocked at 1.1GHz. In case you missed it, the Celeron 847 is actually the first ULV budget CPU based on Sandy Bridge architecture, has 2MB of L3 cache and does not support Hyper-Threading or Turbo Boost. It has a 17W TDP, supports dual-channel DDR3-1333 memory and comes with integrated graphics controller that runs at 350MHz (800MHz Turbo).

The rest of the Edge HD4 features are pretty much standard as you get Gigabit Ethernet, integrated 802.11bgn WiFi, VGA and HDMI outputs, three USB 2.0 and one USB 3.0 port, and according to Sapphire, consumes less than 30W under full load.

Currently it is only available equipped with 4GB of DDR3 So-DIMM memory and a 320GB HDD but we pretty sure that we will see a barebone option as well. Unfortunately, the price or availability date have not been announced.
