Beelink GT-R Mini Desktop Review

Mobile Ryzen in a tiny desktop. The Beelink GT-R is a pluck Ryzen-powered mini desktop that has a lot to offer. Its build quality is excellent, and its performance is fairly good for a small-form-factor PC, but some small quirks and a high price tag may keep it off some people's desks.
Sam Medley, 👁 Allen Ngo,

Beelink is a small Shenzen-based company that manufactures mini desktop PCs and tiny Android TV boxes. Today's review device, the GT-R, is one of their latest small form factor (SFF) Windows desktops. While technically one of the largest devices Beelink makes, the GT-R is a compact computer that takes up about a third of the desk space of a full-sized keyboard. 

The GT-R runs on an AMD Ryzen 5 3550H with an embedded Radeon RX Vega 8 GPU. This APU is designed for laptops, notably the Asus TUF Gaming FX705, but we will see if it feels at home in a small desktop PC and examine how much power can fit in such a small case.

Beelink does not sell the GT-R directly, opting instead for third-party sellers like Geekbuying and Gearbest. Most of these sellers offer the GT-R in various configurations, allowing buyers to choose what RAM and storage options they want. The GT-R can also be bought as a barebones kit for about US $400. This option requires the buyer to provide their own RAM and storage drives. All options come with the Ryzen 5 3550H/Radeon RX Vega 8 APU, which is soldered to the motherboard. 

The mini PC market has some notable devices that stack up well against the GT-R. We will compare the Zotac ZBOX-CI660 Nano (i7-8550U), Intel NUC Kit NUC8i7BEH (i7-8559U), and the Intel Hades Canyon NUC8i7HVK (i7-8809G).

Case and Connectivity

The GT-R's case is well-made, aesthetically pleasing, and hewn from a magnesium alloy. The top panel is covered with glass, giving a bit of extra pop. The case feels sturdy and holds firm under direct pressure. Its neutral gray color gives a professional look, and the matte finish on the side panels resists fingerprints. The top glass shows smudges easily, though. The GT-R's case is beautiful and strong.

The GT-R's footprint is fairly small, taking up about a third of the space of a standard-sized keyboard. It's smaller than some mini PCs, like the Hades Canyon NUC and Zotac ZBOX Nano, but it is a fair bit larger than most Intel NUCs.

Beelink includes a VESA mounting bracket with the GT-R for mounting the device to the back of a monitor.

Beelink fit quite a few ports onto the device. The front of the GT-R has two USB 3.0 Type-A ports, a headset jack, and a single USB 3.0 Type-C port that supports display out. To the left of these are a bright red power button and a small green button for clearing the CMOS (more on that later). There are also two microphones flanking the front I/O.

The rear boasts two gigabit LAN ports and three display hookups (two HDMI, one DisplayPort), and four more USB 3.0 Type-A ports. With the three display outputs on the back and the USB-C port on the front, Beelink says that the GT-R can support up to four displays.

The GT-R features a fingerprint reader on the front panel. Unfortunately, our unit appears to be defective; the reader does not work reliably and consistently registers phantom swipes.

Maintenance

The GT-R has several options for upgrades. After removing four #00 Phillips Head screws, the bottom panel easily lifts away thanks to a handy built-in pull tab. Once inside, users are first greeted with a 2.5-inch drive bay (populated in our review unit). Unplugging a cable and removing a few more screws, users can then lift the shelf for this drive out of the way and gain access to two M.2 drive bays and two DDR4 RAM slots. Keep in mind that the left M.2 drive slot is for NVMe SSDs; the right slot only supports SATA III.

The wireless card appears to be soldered on. The Ryzen 5 3550H is also soldered and requires further disassembly to access it.

Performance

Beating at the heart of the Beelink GT-R is an AMD Ryzen 5 3550H mobile APU. The quad-core, 8-thread chip is coupled with a Radeon RX Vega 8 GPU and offers decent performance for such a small package. Beelink mixes in speedy NVMe storage, two additional bays for SATA drives, and support for up to 64 GB of RAM. In sum, the GT-R makes for a fine office machine with some media skills and light gaming chops.

Processor

While designed for laptops, the AMD Ryzen 5 3550H performs well in the mini desktop. The 3550H utilizes four multithreaded Zen+ (12 nm) cores clocked at 2.1 GHz. The CPU can burst to 3.7 GHz on a single core for short periods.

The GT-R allows users to easily "overclock" the system through the BIOS. Essentially, the BIOS contains settings to increase the overall power envelope from the stock 35 Watts to 54 Watts with a single option change. Users can also lower the TDP to 12 Watts if desired. We will measure performance in some benchmarks at both 35 Watt and 54 Watt.

The GT-R is in line with most 3550H-powered devices in the single-core test in both Cinebench R20 and R15. However, it falls behind in multi-core tests by about 7-10%. Upping the power limit to 54 Watts grants about a 7% bump in Cinebench R15 and roughly 11% in Cinebench R20.

These numbers fall behind Intel's Comet Lake-U platform; the GT-R performs about 15-20% worse than the Intel Core i5-10210U in the Intel NUC10i5FNK and about 20-30% worse than the Core i7-10710U used in the Intel NUC10i7FNH.

Over long workloads, tested by looping Cinebench R15's single-core test 50 times, the GT-R sees an initial dip in performance before spiking back up to about 670 cb and staying steady. When set to 54 W, the CPU remains stable at about 740 cb with on dip about halfway through the test.

System Performance

Overall system performance is good. Applications open quickly thanks to the speedy NVMe drive, and office tasks are easily handled. The GT-R can chew through some lighter graphical work thanks to the onboard Radeon RX Vega 8 GPU, but heavier workloads will slow it down. 

The 54 Watt mode offers negligible improvements in overall system performance as measured by PCMark.

DPC Latency

Audio latency doesn't present a significant problem. In our standardized latency test (streaming a 4K YouTube video, web browsing, and running Prime95), the GT-R shows reasonable numbers. However, the GT-R dropped 35 out of the 3683 frames during our 4K YouTube video stream test. As such, users may notice some choppiness when streaming 4K media.

Storage Devices

The GT-R supports an M.2 NVMe SSD, and M.2 SATA drive, and a 2.5-inch SATA drive. The generic NVMe drive included with our review unit is lightning fast and offers performance on par with high-end drives from Samsung and Kingston. Beelink also included a 1 TB Western Digital Blue 7200 RPM drive (2.5") for mass storage. It performs as expected.

GPU Performance

The Radeon RX Vega 8 GPU is a decent option for lighter graphical work. The GPU features 8 CUs clocked at 1200 MHz. As it is built onto the CPU die, the Vega 8 GPU relies on the PC's RAM for its video memory; as such, faster RAM in a dual-channel configuration generally increases performance.

The Vega 8 GPU is about twice as fast as Intel's UHD Graphics 620, which is used in most Comet Lake Ultrabooks and NUCs. It even bests the more powerful Intel Iris Plus Graphics 655 by a fair margin (21%) in 3DMark's Fire Strike. However, the Vega 8 graphics cannot keep up with entry-level GPUs like the Nvidia GeForce MX330. More powerful GPUs, like the Radeon RX 5300M used in the MSI Bravo 15, blow the Vega 8 out of the water.

Interestingly, switching the GT-R to its 54 Watt mode does not increase GPU power in any noticeable way; the Vega 8's max clock speed stays locked at 1200 MHz. In fact, increasing the wattage to the CPU seems to hinder graphical performance, perhaps due to thermal throttling; Fire Strike recorded lower scores when the CPU was set to 54 Watts.

Gaming Performance

The Radeon RX Vega 8 GPU is adequate for light gaming. Older titles like Bioshock Infinite can be played at Medium/High settings at 1080p and still hit 30 fps or more. For a solid 60 fps, the resolution will need to be turned down to 1366x768. Lighter titles like Rocket League are likewise enjoyable at reduced settings and lower resolutions. Newer and more demanding titles like Doom Eternal struggle on the GT-R at all but the lowest settings.

As mentioned above, pushing the CPU to 54 Watts does little, if anything, to improve framerates in games. Some CPU-reliant titles may benefit, but GPU-driven games see no benefit.

Long-term gameplay is steady as shown by an hour-long playthrough of The Witcher 3. There are no unexpected frame drops or stutter.
