On sale is Beelink's new barebones Mini PC that is packed full of features not commonly found in others like the Intel NUC series. It has received a very positive indepth review from Chris over at TechTablets.

Under the hood it's powered by the AMD Ryzen 5 3550H CPU with 4 cores and 8 threads, as well as Radeon Vega 8 Graphics with dual fan cooling. For storage there is a 2.5" SATA slot, an M.2 2280 NVMe slot and an M.2 2280 SATA slot. It supports 4 displays via the 2 HDMI ports, DisplayPort and the USB-C port on the front. For connectivity it has dual Gigabit LAN, WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1.

Other features include 6 USB 3.1 ports, 3.5mm audiojack, 2 inbuilt micrphones, a CMOS reset button (with fully unlocked BIOS), fingerprint reader and VESA mounting. Like other barebone kits all you need to provide is the RAM, storage and OS. It supports Windows and Linux distros with Intel Wireless driver support.

The GT-R comes with 2 HDMI cables, VESA mounting and a 16GB USB flash drive for OS installation.

    Looks like a great little pc. Unsure how price compares with others but this could be set up to be quite powerful. Maybe not for gaming but a good all rounder.

    Important to note this is a 12nm Picasso Apu (Zen Plus) for mobile systems, not the latest Ryzen 3000 Matisse 7nm architecture.

      Was about to say it's 12nm and not 14nm. Nice edit there :)

      Despite that it's still a better choice than similar priced ones in the market. There are heaps with the i3-5005U and other 4th/5th gen CPUs that won't handle 4K like this one does. Chris' review has the 3550H handling the 4K 10bit content smoothly.

    Use of GT-R… Hmm..

    Clear CMOS button on the front, hmmm….

    • +1 vote

      Makes you wonder where the inspiration came from.

      Not bad idea having the CMOS clear button considering the BIOS has been unlocked so you can change anything and potentially screw it up. Much easier than removing the battery.

        If anything clear CMOS should be at the back. Having at the front would suggest it needs to be done regularly.
        I am pretty sure 99.0% of average users have never needed to clear the CMOS in their life. This case 99% of users of this device will press it because it has a bright green or has young kids.

          Yup that's an oversight. Considering they get a lot of attention from the niche market they probably assumed people would know.

      Both things I very much want in my life.

      •  

        Just one of those things for me.

        •  

          Which one?

          •  

            @El Psy Kongroo: Green Clear CMOS button on the front of course.

            I will only have both if the PC is installed into a GT-R. But not a GT-R with with the PC installed. The GT-R must have a Green Start Button as well.

    It'll be interesting to compare with 7nm 4c8t at 15W, like this one at $499 excluding delivery:
    https://www.pccasegear.com/products/50883/asus-pn50-ryzen-r3...

    The base freq for the 15W part is 2.7GHz compared with 2.1GHz in this product's 35W CPU.

      4300u is 4c/4t , no smt

      ASUS will offer the PN50 with four different APUs: the Ryzen 3 4300 and the Ryzen 5 4500U are coming to the UK market on September 7th, while the Ryzen 7 4700U and Ryzen 7 4800U will be available on September 21st. The kit will be a barebones system, requiring the user to add in memory and a storage drive. The PN50 supports dual DDR4-3200 SO-DIMMs, up to 64 GB, along with an M.2 2280 SATA/PCIe drive and a single 2.5-inch SATA drive.

      The Vega graphics on the mobile APU means the PN50 will support a single 8K display at 60 Hz or up to four 4K60 displays through HDMI, DisplayPort, and dual USB-C ports. On the front there is a USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C port with battery charging support, a USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A port, a 3-in-1 card reader, and an audio jack. On the rear is a USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C port, two USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-A ports, the HDMI 2.0 port, a ‘configurable’ port (DP1.4/COM/VGA/LAN depending on region), gigabit Ethernet, and the DC-in connector. Inside the system is an Intel AX200 Wi-Fi 6 module for wireless connectivity. The system includes a VESA mount kit in the bundle.

    I'd take the cited 5-8 business days with a grain of salt. The last order I placed was on 22 July, which was supposedly shipped on 30 July, shipping info received by Australia Post 1 August, last update being the item was "processed" today.

      It's said by GeekBuying in your order that you should use 17track.net/en for tracking your order as the China arm is handled by UBI. They'll give you significantly more accurate tracking than Auspost will. Tuesday next week will be the 9th business day for your order. See what UBI tracking shows.

      Besides it is an estimate but will certainly be quicker than the other free shipping that has a 30-45 business day estimate.

        17track gives me exactly the same information as auspost.

        Also, by my count Tuesday next week will be the 14th business day since I ordered.

        Not seeking to make a big deal out of it, just flagging the timing estimates might be optimistic

        •  

          The delivery time does not include processing time. The delivery estimate starts from when your order was shipped.

            @Clear: Got it. In which case, take my comment as a heads up that even with the faster shipping time, it could still take GB a week or more to process it so click-to-door time could be 3 weeks

    Is this a good one for setting up as a proxy server for home internet?

    • +1 vote

      Personally would go with Intel NIC if you're going with pfsense.

      Kinda overkill if you're just doing gigabit traffic routing/proxy but openvpn/wireguard should work nicely.
