Teardown: Logitech’s Revue Google TV box gets torn down on the FCC
Logitech’s Revue Google TV box made an appearance on the FCC today thanks to Logitech’s OEM partner, Gigabyte. The company’s FCC filings include some interesting internal photos that give us a good look at the Revue’s innards.
The Revue’s motherboard is dominated by its processor, an Intel Atom 1.2GHz that also provides hardware video acceleration for HD decoding and 3D graphics. You can’t see much of the Atom, however – it’s completely covered by a heat sink. A fan on the lid of the Revue vents hot air out the right side of the device.
The Revue will sport 4GB of memory, which appears to be provided by eight Micron flash modules to the left of the processor. We also see what looks like Hynix SDRAM, to the right of the processor.
Overall, the innards of the Revue share quite a lot in common with an Atom-powered nettop PC. Gigabyte’s experience with this form factor makes them a good partner for Logitech in this respect.
