We have been presenting you a few weeks of low power mini PCs of numerous brands, and today it is the turn of the new Minisforum EliteMini H31G.
A PC with a small form factor that comes in a box that we have already seen in other models of this brand although this one in particular stands out for including an integrated NVIDIA GTX 1050Ti GPU that will allow us to play many games with a more than acceptable graphics quality and resolution. The Minisforum EliteMini H31G also stands out for NOT having a soldered processor, but for including an LGA 1151 socket in which we can mount processors ranging from a simple Celeron to an Intel Core of the Coffee Lake generation with a maximum TDP of 65W.
A very attractive mini-PC thanks to its GPUs and socket and which also has very good storage and RAM installation options.
Processor, RAM and storage
The Minisforum EliteMini H31G has an LGA 1151 socket so we can choose to buy with Intel Core i5-9500F or Core I7-9700F processors or without any and mount it to our liking. The GPU is a NVIDIA GTX 1050Ti with 4 GB of GDDR5 RAM.
For RAM we have 2 DDR4-2400 SODIMM slots available while for storage we find many options, as we have an M.2 MVMe 2280 SSD connector, another M.2 2242 and a free bay for a 2.5-inch SATA3 drive.
