The Chinese manufacturer Beelink has decided to expand its offer of mini PCs with a new model, which this time does not use a processor from Intel, but AMD. Recently, Beelink released Barebone PC the Beelink GT-R with premium features like a fingerprint scanner, magnesium alloy case, and triple Heatpipe silent cooling system. Besides the Ryzen 5 3550H APU with Vega 8 iGPU, there is support for up to 32 GB of RAM, and the storage solutions can include PCIe 3.0 4x NVMe and SATA 3 SSDs, along with a 2.5-inch HDD.
The overall The Beelink GT-R Barebone MINI PC design is simple, using an integrated aluminum CNC process, seamless without screws, a large number of heat dissipation holes on the tail and sides. And a fingerprint recognition is also provided in the lower right corner of the top. The size is 168x120x39mm, which can be laid on the back or VESA wall behind the monitor. On the upper side of the chassis, we find a gadget, which we can meet more and more often on notebooks. But in the case of mini PCs, I appear very rarely. This is a fingerprint reader that, in combination with the Windows Hello service. Allows you to quickly log in to the operating system. However, thanks to the included software, this biometric data can also be used to log in to applications or secure sensitive files.
The Beelink GT-R mini-PC uses a 35-watt AMD Ryzen 5 3550H processor with four 10+ cores and eight threads. We can install up to 32 GB of 2400 MHz DDR4 RAM and for storage. We have slots for M.2 2280 SATA, NVMe, and SATA3 SSDs with space for a 2.5-inch drive. And a 256 or 512GB NVMe SSD. While the customer will have another free M.2 2280 SATA III slot available. The built-in Radeon Vega 8 graphics is said to allow you to connect up to four monitors at once. So the mini PC can also become a suitable office machine.
This equipment has two HDMI outputs, a DisplayPort connector, six USB 3.0 Type-A ports, a USB Type-C 3.1 connector, two Gigabit Ethernet connectors, and has a 3.5 mm jack for headphones and microphone. At the top of the chassis, we see a small space, just in the lower right corner. That is where a fingerprint reader is integrated. An unusual element in this type of equipment that obviously adds a very interesting security layer. And DP 1.4 video outputs with support for HDR 4K @ 60fps, which gives us a total of 4 simultaneously working displays.
The Beelink GT-R fits all of this in a slightly larger chassis than usual with 16.8 cm wide by 12 cm deep and 3.9 cm thick. It remains very very compact and as the machine offers a VESA type fixing. It will be possible to fix it on a piece of furniture or behind a screen easily. We can buy it from Geekbuying at $399.99 by using coupon code: 4GKNYMUX in Flash Sale.
