Beelink has teased a new GK Mini, or a GKmini as the company calls it. The new model measures just 115 x 102 x 43 mm, which is a fair bit smaller than the company's GK55 (affiliate link). Beelink has equipped the GKmini with an Intel Celeron J4125 processor, which did not impress us when we reviewed the GMK NucBox. Incidentally, the GKmini is a lot larger than the NucBox.
According to Beelink, it plans to equip the GKmini with 8 GB of RAM and an M.2 2280 slot that can host up to 512 GB SATA drives. There will also be a 2.5-inch drive bay too though, should you wish to add more storage. Additionally, the machine has four USB 3.0 Type-A ports, dual HDMI connections and a LAN port.
Beelink also claims that the GKmini has a 'built-in silent fan', a statement that would only be true if that fan was not running. However, the company states that the fan peaks at 4,500 RPM, which would be audible. Nonetheless, the presence of a fan and heatsink will not necessarily allow the GKmini to outperform the GMK NucBox.
Beelink is yet to announce how much the GKmini will cost, nor when it will be available. We imagine that the company will do so on Twitter, though.
