The 10th generation Intel processors begin to flood the world of Chinese mini PCs, where lately we do not stop seeing new PCs equipped with these Chips that have passed without pain or glory in the market.
The AU45-I3C1011C mini PC includes a box made of aluminium suitable for vertical positioning and that includes a pair of external Wi-Fi antennas. Inside we have something interesting like its NVMe storage port or its two So-Dimm RAM slots that allow us to configure the always interesting Dual Channel. It mounts an Intel Core i3-10110U entry-level processor that supports 4K streaming for Netflix thanks to its certificates, although in this case it limits the HDMI video output limited to 30fps in 4K UHD resolutions.
Processor, RAM and storage
In the mini Pc AU45-I3C1011C we find an Intel Core i3-10110U processor, a Dual Core with 4 Threads capable of reaching 4.1 Ghz with an Intel UHD GPU. This mini PC has an internal fan and includes two SO-DIMM RAM DDR4 slots to configure it in Dual Channel and in terms of storage we have options to mount an M.2 NVME SSD disk and an internal 2.5″ disk drive in its SATA3 port.
As for wireless connectivity, we have an optional Wi-Fi adapter, although it is best to buy a Wi-Fi 6 (AX) + Bluetooth 5.0 module for less than $16 and be up-to-date in wireless connectivity. The connectors that we find in the box are 2 USB 3.0 ports, 4 USB 2.0 ports, 2 3.5 mm audio jack, Gigabit Ethernet connector, an HDMI 1.4 and a VGA.
Price and availability
- The AU45-I3C1011C mini PC can be purchased on Aliexpress.com from $ 554.51 with free shipping in its barebone version (without RAM or storage), a very unattractive price for what it offers.
