Local startup Dreamcore has announced the Dreamcore Inspire, an ultra-compact workstation PC powered by AMD’s new Raven Ridge APUs and Vega graphics.

However, unlike Dreamcore’s other systems like the Dreamcore One, Reverie, and Reverie Pro, the Inspire is more of a productivity and workstation machine than a gaming PC.

Its small form factor and sleek aluminum finish will be right at home in a business setting, and it’s small enough to fit neatly under your monitor.

Here’s an overview of its specifications:

  • AMD Ryzen 5 2400G with Radeon RX Vega 11 Graphics (3.6GHz, 4MB L3 cache)
  • ASRock Fatal1ty AB350 Gaming-ITX/ac
  • Crucial 16GB 2,400MHz DDR4 RAM
  • 250GB Samsung 860 EVO SSD
  • 1TB Western Digital HDD
  • Windows 10 Home (64-bit)

The above configuration will cost you S$1,314, but the system actually starts at a more affordable price of S$999 if you opt for less powerful components.

The Vega 11 graphics serve up decent performance for an integrated solution, and are capable of handling most esports titles.

The Inspire also comes with plenty of connectivity options, including support for 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, and up to eight USB ports for all your peripherals. In addition, you can connect up to three monitors at once for a more expansive workstation.

That said, if you prefer an Intel-based system, Dreamcore offers that as well on the Inspire. You’ll find options for up to an Intel Core i7-8700 (3.2GHz, 12MB L3 cache) processor and an ASRock Z370M-ITX/ac motherboard, although that’ll cost you an additional S$235 on top of the specification listed above.

Elsewhere, Dreamcore is also introducing updates to its Dreamcore One and Reverie Pro desktops. The Dreamcore One Silver Edition offers a brushed aluminum silver exterior and a redesigned chassis that will take up to an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 and offer additional fan and storage mounts. 

Similarly, the Reverie Pro now comes in a new chassis with gull-wing tempered glass panels for easier access to your components.
