  • Sunchip Wintel CX-W8 PRO (x5-Z8300)

    So there is a new revision of Wintel miniPC with new CPU - Intel x5-Z8300 CherryTrail.
    I bought it and after 2 weeks finnaly arrived. So I made some benchmarks, and stability test (because of worries of overheating like previous model).

    I think its good result, considering my old 7200HDD perform similar.

    After that I run Aida64 stability test for 10minutes where temps wont rise anymore:

    75C for hottest core its good for mini passive cooling PC..
    PC runs 24 hours, streaming movies, browsing net etc, no problem.




    I then try install windows 8.1, which runs better than W10 but theres a problem:
    Cant get work this devices:
    Serial IO GPIO Controller
    Serial IO I2C ES Controller
    Serial IO SPI Controller
    Serial IO UART Controller

    (error 37, cant initialize driver)

    Its looks like theres no CherryTrail X86 Windows 8.1 drivers... X64 (of course) not working and drivers for W10 X86 dont work either...

    Tried install every driver that I found, manualy (.inf) or auto, tried my backuped original drivers from W10, still no luck.. Thats a shame because of that you cant really use PC, and Windows 8.1 even without drivers runs better, faster...

    So if someone will be sucessfully working W8.1 32-bit (x86) on this or other Z8300 device, it will be helpfull to share your drivers and how you made it work...

      I've got one of these running on x64 Windows 10 but I'm missing a single driver which I think is part of the audio system which is listed by device ID has being ES8316 AudCodec Device Driver, if anyone can assist it would be appreciated.

      Edit: scrub that I've now a full set of x64 Win10 drivers. I found the Onda Obook11 drivers were just the ticket.

        You have x64 ? because what I know this one is shipped with 32bit UEFI which you cant install x64 OS...

          Yes x64, it came with x64 Windows installed originally.
          The only difference I noticed was the base text.

              That website says the Windows 10 OS is not activated and cannot be activated. How do you get an activation key for it, and how much does it cost?

                  Mine came pre activated from the seller on ****.
                  i can confirm it was a legit copy as I've since reinstalled Win10 from scratch and it self activated.

                      HDMI is 1.4, the same as all other Wintel boxes (bar the Magicstick reputedly), so will only support 2560 x 1440 @30fps.

                              Will be great if someone dum his 64bit UEFI bios file and post it... Maybe it will be work to flash it on 32bit UEFI machines.
