Next week, the smallest desktop PC with NVIDIA GeForce 1050 Ti graphics will hit the market. The MINISFORUM H31G will launch with the Intel Core i5 9500F (US$659) and Intel Core i7 9700F (US$799) processors inside, both setups also featuring 16 GB of memory, a 256 GB SSD, and the aforementioned video card.

Launched in July, the MINISFORUM H31 is a compact mini PC that comes with a single processor option — the Intel Core i3-9100. The only hardware choices spin around the memory and storage configuration, nothing more. Next week, the H31G will come to address this issue by throwing i5 and i7 processor options into the mix, alongside an improved cooling system and a dedicated graphics card — the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti with 4 GB of GDDR5 memory.

Advertised as "an ultra-small high-performance mini desktop PC that is especially designed for game enthusiasts and advanced content creators alike," the MINISFORUM H31G is scheduled to hit the market on September 29 in the following two configurations:

The video below shows how MINISFORUM's engineers have managed to get so much computing power in a tight space — both the mainboard and video card are custom solutions, the cooling system uses 4 copper pipes and two silent fans that can have their speeds adjusted in the BIOS. When it comes to storage, the H31G can handle TF cards, M.2 SATA SSDs, PCIe x4 NVMe SSDs, as well as a 2.5-inch hard drive. Lastly, I should also mention support for WiFi 6 wireless internet support with a maximum transfer rate of 2.4 Gb/s.

If everything goes as planned, we should be able to take the H31G for a spin before the end of the month and we will be sure to give you some test results and first-hand impressions in the first part of November. If there's anything you'd like us to throw at the little beast, let us know in the comments section.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
