The GK3V is a mini-PC based on Intel's Gemini Lake Refresh platform. Specifically, the machine contains a Celeron J4125, which features four cores that can boost to 2.7 GHz. The chip does not support Intel Hyper-Threading, limiting it to four cores, but it does come with a built-in UHD Graphics 600 GPU that can drive a 4K display at 60 Hz.
The GK3V is available with 8 GB of RAM and a 128 GB or 256 GB SSD, but the latter can be supplemented with a 2.5-inch HDD or SSD. It is unclear if the built-in storage is replaceable or soldered, though. However, the specification sheet suggests that the SSD is an M.2 SATA one. Nonetheless, Windows 10 Professional comes pre-installed.
The GK3V supposedly supports Linux too, according to the manufacturer WooYi. The machine has built-in dual-band Wi-Fi installed too along with four USB Type-A ports and three video outputs. There is an Ethernet port and a microSD card reader, too.
The machine measures 128 x 128 x 45 mm, making it small enough to fit on most desks. The GK3V starts at US$179.39 on AliExpress, but its price rises to US$194.99 for the version with 256 GB of storage. The mini-PC is available with AU, EU, UK and US plugs.
