The TOPTON VG combines a mini-PC form factor with IR remote control support, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 GPU and powerful processors
TOPTON sells plenty of mini-PCs, of which the VG is probably one of the most powerful. Specifically, TOPTON offers the machine with a choice of desktop-class processors ranging from the Core i3-9100F to the Core i9-9900. Unsurprisingly, TOPTON has included a sizeable fan and heatsink to cool the machine's powerful processors.
Additionally, all configurations come with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 GPU that has 4 GB of VRAM. This is the desktop version of the card rather than the laptop variant too, as the picture below shows. The card is replaceable, although the VG's dimensions of 265 x 185 x 45 mm will restrict what card you could use. The graphics card slots directly into the motherboard though, so no space is taken up by a PCIe riser cable, for example.
Accordingly, the TOPTON VG has two HDMI 2.0 ports, a DisplayPort and a DVI output, courtesy of its dedicated GPU. However, there are also two HDMI outputs connected to the motherboard that communicate with the Intel processor's integrated GPU. Moreover, TOPTON has included two SO-DIMM slots that support up to 64 GB of DDR4-2666 RAM, along with an M.2 2280 slot for a PCIe SSD and a 2.5-inch drive bay should you need more storage.
TOPTON has not skimped on other I/O either, with four USB 3.0 Type-A ports on the back and a further three USB 2.0 variants on the front. The company has also included dedicated headphone and microphone jacks, which is nice to see. The VG has a LAN connection, albeit the machine can connect to Wi-Fi via an M.2-2230 module.
The TOPTON VG starts at US$526.32 on AliExpress as a barebones PC with the Core i3-9100F, and increases to US$964.91 for the barebones Core i9-9900 model. TOPTON offers the VG in multiple storage and RAM combinations though, should you prefer not to purchase RAM and storage separately. All configurations are compatible with an IR remote, which is a US$14 surcharge.
