Logitech Revue Google TV BOX FCC

The Logitech’s Revue Google TVbox showed up at the FCC today thanks to Logitech’s OEM partner, Gigabyte.  Gigabyte’s FCC filings show us some interesting internal photos that give us a good look at the Revue’s innards.  There’s no surprise that the box is essentially a nettop.

The Revue’s motherboard is dominated by its processor, an Intel Atom 1.2GHz which is cooled by a large heatsink.  There’s a (hopefully quiet) fan built into the lid of the nettop.  The processor 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.

No word yet when we’ll see this on the street, or for what price, but we’re optimistic that this will bring the nettop, and the idea of the nettop, to the masses.
