Mini forum GameMini
A gaming PC from China? This could soon become a reality, because the manufacturer “Minisforum”, known for ultra-compact mini PCs, is working on a special kind of gaming PC.
The Minisforum GameMini is an open-case gaming PC that has it all. This was only recently shown by Minisforum on Twitter, where the GameMini was presented for the first time in a video. The following components make up the open gaming PC:
- GIGABYTE B550I AORUS Pro AX motherboard
- AMD Ryzen 5 5600X (6 CPU cores, 12 threads, clock speed of 3,70 GHz - 4,60 GHz, 32MB L3 cache, 65W)
- AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics card
- 32 GB dual-channel DDR4-3200 RAM
- 1TB Kingston KC2500 M.2 SSD
- SilverStones SX650-G power supply
In principle, the GameMini is a barebone in mini-ITX format that can be equipped with any components. Due to the open structure, the components can be reached directly and are comparatively easy to cool.
But you also have to be aware that the design tends to become a dust catcher, which can have a detrimental effect on cooling performance and noise development.
Price and availability
The GameMini is already available in the Japanese Minisforum online shop. There the gaming PC costs an impressive 269.000 yen, which at the current exchange rate corresponds to 2.018 euros. A fair price if you take the current hardware prices into account. It is not yet known whether and when the GameMini will come to Europe.
