Nice find,

Just a heads up, there's currently an issue with the NICs running openwrt.

Read ACEMAGICIAN T8PLUS (Intel N95) - #47 by devast and onward.

Adding Germany to both availability + cheap of this x86 dual-LAN:

  • 50€ coupon checkbox makes it 140€ at checkout
  • The 16GB version + coupon checkbox becomes 200€ at checkout

A German test though attributes it to have the highes latency in Windows among all their ever tested mini Celeron/Pentium devices:
(https://www.notebookcheck.com/Ace-Magician-T8Pro-im-Test-Ein-preiswerter-Mini-PC-fuer-den-Office-Einsatz.678417.0.html)

The same test claims

  • the fan to be almost silent in idle
  • the RAM to be soldered, non-changeable
  • the m.2 SSD module to be max 42mm long, SATA only
  • the (1) Wifi module to be outdated and slow, but changable
  • 8 Watt Windows idle

Somewhat true. It's not that the fan is loud. But there's no fan control/monitoring exposed in bios settings, or inside windows/linux. It will constantly spin up and stop if the machine is idling. This would not be a huge problem, but my unit has a quite loud rattle either when spinning up or stopping. Only when its in the "default" position. If i let it stand on its side, no problem.

True. Also, my N95 version had the ram set to 3200Mhz in the bios when i got it. You should set it to 4800 manually in the bios.

False. It is 2242, so 42mm long that part is true. But it takes nvme drives no problem. The factory included drive is a trash msata drive. It should be replaced if you care about your data safety, or power consumption.

Yep, its a quite bad one. Though it "works". For basic internet access its fine.

Most of that has to do with: 1, the msata drive 2, the wlan card 3, the low quality 12v power supply.
I'm pretty sure, without a wifi and using an nvme ssd with proper sleep states and a good power supply it can be sub 5W.

problem closed, the parameter should now be enabled in the x86 builds.

To be more precise, parameters are exposed in sysfs. You would still need to do:

echo 0 > /sys/class/net/eth0/device/link/clkpm
echo 0 > /sys/class/net/eth0/device/link/l1_aspm
echo 0 > /sys/class/net/eth1/device/link/clkpm
echo 0 > /sys/class/net/eth1/device/link/l1_aspm

This would properly turn off aspm:

LnkCtl: ASPM Disabled; RCB 64 bytes, Disabled- CommClk+                       

But after that everything will be fine, just tested.
