AMD gaming computers with miniature desktop hardware


from Maurice Riebling
With GameMini, the manufacturer Minisforum shows a particularly compact and ready-to-use PC for gamers that uses AMD for both CPU and GPU and comes with an open-shell design.

With GameMini, the manufacturer Minisforum wants to make an attractive offer for gamers who prefer ultra-compact gaming PCs. The open box format is likely a matter of taste, while only AMD hardware is installed, there is no room for your own upgrade, and cable clutter cannot be avoided.

Mid-range computer with an open mini case

If you take a look at the built-in hardware first, there is a mid-range computer with Ryzen 5 5600X and Radeon RX 6700 plus 32 GiByte of Kingston HyperX DDR4-3200 RAM, split into two RGB-illuminated modules and 1TB of storage via M.2 SSD. Meanwhile, power is supplied by a Silverstone SX650-G.

The hardware is divided by a PCI-E riser, which organizes Gigabyte’s full-size graphics card in the form of the Triple-Fan XT Gaming OC on the right side. On the left is the rest of the hardware in the form of a power supply unit, as well as installed on a Gigabyte B550 Aorus Pro AX Mini-ITX motherboard.

In the middle, the components are separated by a semi-open wall, which also houses the I / O box and a decorative panel. Meanwhile, it gets troublesome with the external connections of the motherboard and graphics card. They are located at the top.

Therefore, cable clutter could be pre-programmed if many connections are used or if cables are not fixed in place for quick repositioning. Internal power connections should also be another problem if the manufacturer is not working properly here. What still looks good in the product image may turn out to be the opposite in practice, as the Minisforum lab images show.

Therefore, interested parties should attack carefully or wait for the first images of the finished product. The GameMini cannot be purchased yet. According to the manufacturer, the first step is to evaluate the overall system performance. Only then should pre-orders be possible.
