Another low power mini PC that we found on Aliexpress under the name of TexHoo DX-3 and that this time draws our attention by including an Nvidia GT 1030 GPU with 2 GB of RAM.
The Nvidia GT 1030 is an entry-level GPU suitable for gaming in 720p and up to 1080p resolutions by adjusting filters that we can compare in terms of overall performance with an integrated AMD Radeon RX Vega 11 present in the Ryzen 5 2400G or Ryzen 5 3400G APUs. The size of this mini PC stands out because its dimensions are 185 x 194 x 40 mm, a minimal size for a mini PC of these characteristics. The rest of its specifications are within what we can expect in a mini PC with enough power to run Windows 10.
Processor, RAM and storage
The TexHoo DX-3 mini PC is available with multiple 9th and 10th generation Intel processor options, from a Core i3-9100F to a powerful Core i5-10400, all with an Nvidia GT 1030 graphics card with 2 GB of RAM. From what we see in the advertising it seems that in this miniPC the GPU is not integrated and can be replaced by another.
The RAM memory is 8/16 GB DDR4 Dual Channel and for storage we have a 256/512 GB M.2 2280 SSD although we can install another 2.5 inch storage unit, as it has a SATA3 connector.
We also have inside the mini PC an M.2 card with Dual Band Wifi and Bluetooth with two external antennas on the back of the case. As connectors we have 6 USB 3.0 ports, 2 USB 2.0, 4 3.5mm audio jacks, RJ-45 Gigabit network connector and HDMI and VGA video outputs with support for up to 4K@30fps resolutions.
Pricing and availability
- The TexHoo DX-3 mini PC can be purchased on AliExpress only for $619 (€514.29) with free shipping on its Core i3-9100F version.
