DeskMini X35G: New Mini PC comes with an Intel Ice Lake processor, 16 GB of RAM, Thunderbolt 3 and Dual Gigabit Ethernet
MINISFORUM has introduced its new Mini PC, the DeskMini X35G. Unlike the S40, the DeskMini X35G includes an Intel Ice Lake CPU among many other potent components. The machine measures 136.5 x 121.5 x 40.5 mm and weighs around 500 g - MINISFORUM is yet to provide a specific weight. At the heart of the DeskMini X35G is a Core i3-1005G1 processor, which features two cores and Intel Hyper-Threading support. The 15 W chip can Turbo Boost up to 3.4 GHz and integrates Intel UHD Graphics.
Also on board is 16 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM, along with an M.2 2280 NVMe slot that supports Intel Optane memory. Additionally, there is a 2.5-inch drive bay that could also be utilised for an M.2 2280 SATA SSD. The inclusion of an Intel CPU allowed MINISFORUM to provide a Thunderbolt 3 port, which it has supplemented with four USB Type-A ports. Dual Gigabit Ethernet ports have been included too, as has a memory card slot. If wired internet is not your thing, then you could use the machine's Wi-Fi 6 modem instead.
The DeskMini X35G has two dedicated video outputs, DisplayPort and HDMI 2.0, but it can also utilise DisplayPort Alt Mode to output in up to 5K and 120 Hz via its Thunderbolt 3 port. CNX Software claims that MINISFORUM will bring the DeskMini X35G to Indiegogo in October. The machine will start at US$399 on the crowdfunding website with 16 GB of RAM and 256 GB of SSD storage.
