We found in stores a new low-consumption mini PC capable of functioning as a basic computer called BMAX MaxMini B5.
A small PC that surprises us by including an Intel Core i5-5250U processor as its engine, a Chip that came out no less than 6 years ago and that BMAX recovers from oblivion for this computer. It is not the first Chinese team that we see mounting a processor that is very outdated today, something that we can perhaps attribute to the shortage of more current processors.
The BMAX MaxMini B5 comes in a small metal box measuring only 280 x 156 x 72mm with the typical design of this brand and in which we see that we have 3 video outputs on its perimeter. Globally, the configuration with 8 GB of RAM will allow us to use this PC for navigation, multimedia, office automation and other basic work, of course with its GPU we can forget to use it for graphically complex games.
Processor, RAM and storage
The BMAX MaxMini B5 includes an Intel Core i5-5250U processor, a Dual Core manufactured in 14nm with 4 threads that reaches 2.7 Ghz in turbo mode and an Intel HD 6000 GPU with 48EU capable of reproducing video up to 4K resolution at 60fps. The RAM memory is 8 GB of RAM and includes a 256 GB capacity M.2 2280 SSD that we can replace with another.
Regarding networks, we have Dual Band Wi-Fi aC with internal antenna, Bluetooth 4.2 and an RJ45 Gigabit network port. The connection interfaces are a 3.5 mm audio jack, 2 USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, an HDMI video output port, a mini DisplayPort and a USB Type-C for data and video.
