New mini PCs are coming to AliExpress with the new low-power chips from Intel 12th Gen, such as the Intel N100 that we discovered today in the miniPC D4.
This is a fairly modest miniPC in design and connectivity, but nonetheless, it surprises us with the inclusion of 4800 Mhz DDR5 RAM, something that we assume will become more widespread in the coming months. However, we don’t know if your RAM is soldered on the board or in one or two SO-DIMM sockets, a fact that is quite important for the future.
As we already mentioned, inside the D4 we find a quad-core Intel N100 processor with a TDP of 6W, manufactured in 10 nm (Intel 7) and Intel HD Graphics GPU that make it incapable of being used in games with minimal demands.
D4 miniPC Specifications
The D4 mini PC integrates as its engine the Intel N100 processor manufactured in 10 nm with four cores and four execution threads that reach up to 3.4 GHz. For the graphics section, we have an integrated Intel UHD Graphics GPU with 24EU compatible with VP9 video codecs and h.265 up to 4K@60fps. A processor and GPU that is not designed for demanding 3D titles, but that does allow us to use the device for many other daily multimedia or office tasks.
As for the 8 GB LPDDR5 RAM at 4800 MHz with support for up to 32 GB in Dual Channel. For storage, we have capacity for an M.2 2280 SSD that we find in different capacities and space for another 2.5-inch SATA 3 drive
For wireless connectivity, it includes an M.2 module with dual-band Wi-Fi aC and Bluetooth 4.2. In the connectors area we have a microSD card reader, 3 USB 2.0 ports, one USB 3.0, 3.5 mm audio jack, 2 Gigabit Ethernet ports and HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort video outputs that allow video to be played up to resolution 4K@60fps smoothly.
