I would love to see a version of the Pico PC with an AMD processor.  AMD makes a few lines of embedded processors, but I think something in the R series would be ideal.  I know that the whole idea behind the Pico PC is a very small computer, but with enough power to handle whatever you want to do on it.  Since keeping the small form factor is important, you have to choose a processor with a relatively low power consumption so that the cooling won't take up too much space.  The Celeron J4125 that the first version of the PicoPC uses has a 10 W TDP.  The AMD Ryzen R1505G can be set to a TDP anywhere from 10 W to 25 W.  The R1505G also is more efficient than the Celeron J4125, so it can do more with the same or very similar amount of power.  It is 2 core, 4 thread (2 more threads than the J4125), with a higher base clock AND boost clock than the Celeron J4125.  I backed the PicoPC project on kickstarter, and I'm super excited to get mine, but I don't know exactly what I will use it for.  It is capable of a lot, but so is my old Macbook laptop.  I think that the PicoPC is totally awesome, but it is being held back by the not amazing Celeron J4125.  I believe that using a AMD Ryzen processor would be a substantial upgrade, and it would be be a huge step in making the PicoPC a true full-size desktop replacement.

P.S.  RGB would also be really cool.

In view that ARM is developing fast in some platforms and Microsoft now is interested in such architecture for the low consumption and possibilities would be a nice development of a mini PC compatible 100% including drivers of all included devices for Windows ARM64.

also we have to start thinking of being ride of old USB connectors and include only USB-C together with a wired LAN connection or one adaptor USB-C>LAN.

with a RAM size of 8 to 16 GB and HD SSD too.

I really wonder to see one of these devices working.
