Beelink has unveiled one of the first compact desktop computers with AMD Ryzen 7040 “Phoenix” chips. These processors are designed for high-performance thin and light laptop and compact desktop computers and support up to 8 of AMD’s Zen 4 CPU cores, up to 12 RDNA 3 compute units, and up to 24MB of cache.
The Beelink GTR7 and GTR7 Pro were announced earlier this month, and they’re now available for pre-order for around $680 and up. The standard model ships with an AMD Ryzen 7 7840HS processor, 32GB of RAM and 1TB of storage, while the Pro has a Ryzen 9 7940HS chip. Both models should begin shipping in early June, 2023.
The systems are up for pre-order from AliExpress for $750 or $850, respectively – but there’s a $70 store coupon that knocks those prices down to $680 or $780.
You can also pre-order directly from Beelink, where prices start at $789 for the GTR7 or $869 for the GTR7 Pro, but you can shave $100 off those prices by using the coupon codes GTR7100 or GTR7PRO100.
Both versions of the little computer measure 6.6″ x 4.7′ x 1.9″ and feature 8-core, 16-thread chips with Radeon 780M integrated graphics as well as support for up to 64GB of DDR5-5600 memory (thanks to two SODIMM slots) and up to 8TB of PCIe 4.0 NVMe storage (thanks to two M.2 2280 slots).
The little computers are pretty powerful, with support for up to four displays and integrated graphics that rival entry-level discrete GPUs, potentially making the GTR 7 a relatively inexpensive option if you’re looking for a compact, affordable PC for light gaming.
The company says its latest mini PC has a metal chassis and an active cooling system that Beelink says allows the processors to consume up to 65 watts of power demanding applications, although this is an optional feature that needs to be enabled in the BIOS. Out of the box the chips are configured to use up to 54 watts.

It’s possible that Beelink could offer lower-priced configurations in the future that ship with less memory or storage. But so far the only models available for purchase ship with 32GB of RAM, 1TB of storage, and
This article was first published May 1, 2023 and most recently updated May 24, 2023 with pricing and availability details. The article originally mentioned much higher prices, which were apparently placeholders on the AliExpress page, and a barebones version, which is not currently available.
a bit expensive
fanless please, make it fanless!
That would be very nice! However, it would have to have a pretty chunky heatsink to dissipate 35 W of heat…
Prices are too high. I would rather build my own, even if it isn’t this small. Until they make reasonable prices, these machines will only be for those who have money to throw away.
Only DP 1.4? Why? Beelink has usb 4 so that port should be DP2.0 integrated
I suspect this is an error in the article
I’m not buying a Mini PC from a foreign-market brand with a proprietary magnetic DC cable like that. Not a chance.
What a stupid design decision. Magnetic power cables are beneficial for repeated disconnections/reconnections. Why would I need that on a stationary PC?
The USB port shares the DC label indicating it could also be used to power it.
That would excellent if true, but to my eye the label is not centered between the usb 4 and the door for the magnetic connector, so I would be inclined to think it can’t be powered through both.
The listing says the price isn’t final, and the GTR6 6900H with 32GB of RAM and a 500GB NVMe drive is $889 on Amazon, and Beelink tends to ship their mini PCs with RAM and SSDs already, so the GTR7 will probably be cheaper than the listed price, and with components.
I should hope so! Not sure who would spend $1300+ on a mini PC with no memory or storage! Way to discourage potential customers (that I count myself among). I would honestly not pay more than $800.
So what do you do with it?
i will be waiting for the beelink Ser 7840HS Version if there is any, price for this is too high and i still dont like that clear cmos button in the front.
Waiting on the Ryzen 9 7945HX. Pricing will depend on supply of the actual APU and right now its tight, so prices are high.
Is that price final? The Aliexpress description does say the price showing on page is not the final price, or is that outdated?
Good catch. I’ve updated the article to make it clear that the company says the mini PCs will go on sale around May 7th and the pricing hasn’t been finalized yet.
Lol no. I love mini PCs as much as the next guy, but their pricing is absurd for this. Makes me wonder if AMD is overcharging them. I can’t imagine anyone looking at a 6900hx mini pc for less than half that price and thinking they could sell a 7940hs for double. If so, they should be fired lol.
The tacky text on the front of the thing doesn’t really help either.
Agree on the text, these Chinese makers don’t seem to know when to say when on labeling. It’s ridiculous and they never learn that for the most part…minimal labeling sells well.
I don’t understand it. With the labeling and pricing of this model…why even bother.
I thought we’d have a good NUC counterpart by now. As a lover of AMD mini pc’s…it’s unbelievable at this point.
Well, GTR7 has officially launched today, and the text is gone 🙂 Also, the price is much more reasonable – €789 for 7845HS and €869 for 7945HS, both with 32 GB RAM and 1 TB of (unspecified) NVMe SSD. There is no barebone version.
Oops, I thought I was responding to the original article about the preorder where the price was like $1300 or something like that.
You were. I updated and republished the article rather than writing a brand new one, but I should probably amend the update to make it clear what I changed. Sorry about that!
