World’s Smallest Mini Desktop With Discrete Graphics
Compact computers are often difficult to call efficient. In most cases, they are comparable to Ultrabooks in this regard. MinisForum decided to prove that even in a miniature case, you can get a powerful filling with Minisforum EliteMini H31G.
EliteMini H31G is positioned as the world’s smallest PC with a discrete graphics card. Precisely, the MinisForum EliteMini H31G measures 154 x 153 x 62 mm and weighs about 1 kg.
In such a small package, the manufacturer managed to accommodate an eighth or ninth-generation Intel desktop processor with a TDP of up to 65 W and a discrete NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics card with 4 GB of GDDR5 memory (TDP 75 W).
Even in its small size, there is space for two memory slots, an M.2 slot, and a 2.5-inch SSD. This space is located under the motherboard. GPU is the MXM standard used in notebook computers.
The ports include HDMI, mini Display Port, Gigabit RJ45, 3.5 mm audio jack, 4 x USB 3.0, and a slot for memory cards up to 128 GB. The computer supports Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1.
The price is $399 for a barebone with no CPU and only a GPU, and $629 for a model with a Core i5-9500F, 8GB RAM, and 256GB SSD, which doesn’t look bad considering the specs. It sounds like interesting stuff for anyone interested in a mini PC.
