Today we find in the large bazaar of Aliexpress.com a new miniPC in the Kingdel store with dimensions a little larger than normal and that stands out for its good-sized fan that we assume will not give too much noise. This new miniPC comes with a nice and well-ventilated metal case with a small plate that inside integrates welded Intel i5-7300HQ or i7-7820HK processors, some Kaby Lake manufactured in 14nm that today still have excellent performance even for demanding tasks. Yet another option of miniPC that allows to replace any obsolete tower that we have for a small price and with a much higher performance.
Processor, RAM and storage
We have two versions of this KingDel miniPC, one with an Intel Core i5-7300HQ processor, a Quad Core with four threads with x86 processors capable of reaching 3.5Ghz and an Intel HD 630 GPU. The second version available is more powerful and has a powerful Intel Core i7-7820HK processor, an Quad Core with eight threads that reaches 3.9Ghz with an Intel HD 630 GPU.
For RAM we have a SODIMM socket where we can install up to 16GB of DDR4L memory, while for storage we find an M.2 port and a SATA3 connector inside with space to install a 2.5 “disk storage unit.
This miniPC has enough connectors as it has a pair of 3.5mm audio jacks, a USB Type-C, 4 USB 3.0, 2 USB 2.0, gigabit network connector and HDMI 1.4 and DisplayPort 2.0 video outputs that supports up to resolutions 4K at 60fps. We also have a pair of internal WiFi antennas and a mini-pcie connector where it seems that we have a Dual Band WiFi card, although we are not 100% sure of this since the description is not at all clear.
