The Intel Core i5-12400 processor reaches Chinese mini PCs

Today we find in AliExpress a version of a Chinese miniPC that includes a 12th Generation Intel Core i5-12400 processor.

This is a chip that until now we have only seen present in desktop PCs and that is now making the leap to compact equipment. The Intel Core i5-12400 is a processor only suitable for being actively cooled and with enough power to move any program, although for games it is very limited, since its iGPU is an Intel UHD 730, quite limited in power,

About the rest of the miniPC little to comment, designed for productivity and little else, you just have to take a look at its connectors, quite basic in its range.
