    Can't see that being used in a POS terminal at that price, unless the bulk discount is exceptionally deep. Quad 4K displays though, I suppose once you have paid for that many panels a few hundred dollars on top isn't that much.

    This will be used for all those digital advertising boards, and fruit machines and quiz machines.

    Nice to see a selection of tiny but powerful AMD boards though. I don't think the price here is too bad either.

    I didn't realise that mini-STX also determined the front-IO layout. Cases are dirt cheap - https://www.scan.co.uk/products/silverstone-sst-vt01s-vital-mini-stx-silver?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI4ePnmt2H3AIVxBXTCh1qvAxwEAQYAiABEgKJkfD_BwE

    Yup this is designed for digital billboards and score screens. Think those crickets screens or the screens for VAR at sporting events

    What's the point? They're designed for big systems which are hugely expensive anyway and probably have a long lifespan. Therefore, I'd have the space, budget and desire to have a modular system which can be upgraded to extend lifespan. You can't tell me a giant cricket scoreboard can't afford a standard PC case in terms of space and cost?

    Larger case is harder to weather-proof?

    That's like asking why do POS and other stuff have embedded processors. Most of the time they don't have modular stuff because it's designed to be stuck in place and never touched again (unless it goes wrong). This has 4 x 4k capable display outputs without any extras. It's simple and easy to just put together

    Last POS system I used had a giant PC case, a CRT monitor and ran.... on DOS. Ah memories. I suppose if it goes wrong it's likely to do so at such a time where the owner has to pay the bill so they don't really care about replacing an entire board for what is a single component failing.

    the AMD Ryzen Embedded V1605B is essentially a Ryzen 2500u, it has the same specs as my laptop

    sorry forgot to add the last bit...

    ... my laptop is genuinely incredibly powerful and fast. I'd love to find one of the top end ones for a little desktop system!

    I've been out of that industry for about 6 years, but at that point supermarket checkouts were still running that sort of setup with a 486 or original Pentium. Seems ideal fodder for an ARM+android setup to me, a Pi 3 with touchscreen could do the job better
