The Beelink SER6 is a 5″ x 4.5″ x 1.7″ computer powered by 45-watt AMD Ryzen 5 6600H processor, while the Beelink SER6 Pro is basically the same computer with higher-performance Ryzen 7 6800H processor and a metal chassis (instead of plastic).

Both models are expected to begin shipping by the end of December, and they’re up for pre-order from the MINIXPC store with prices starting at $549 and $649 respectively. Update 12/21/2022: The MINIXPC Store has dropped those starting prices by $100 each by offering barebones configurations. Meanwhile if you’d rather buy one from Amazon, a SER6 Pro model with 32GB of RAM and 500GB of storage is selling for $699.

AMD’s Ryzen 5 6600H processor is a 6-core, 12-thread chip with support for speeds up to 4.5 GHz and a 6-core Radeon 660M GPU, while the Ryzen 7 6800H processor is an 8-core, 12-thread chip with speeds up to 4.7 GHz and 12-core Radeon 680M graphics.

The Beelink SER6 and SER6 Pro come with a 500GB PCIe 4.0 x4 M.2 2280 SSD and 16GB or 32GB of DDR5-4800 memory. But Beelink says the computer is upgradeable: it supports up to 64GB of RAM, the M.2 2280 slot supports SSDs up to 2TB, and there’s room for a 2.5 inch SATA 3 hard drive or SSD.

In addition to the metal or plastic chassis, the computers have a “breathable fabric” cover on top, and under the hood there’s an aluminum heat sink and a cooling fan to keep the system from overheating.

Ports include:

  • 2 x HDMI 2.0
  • 1 x 2.5 Gbps Ethernet
  • 1 x USB4
  • 3 x USB 3.2 Gen 2 TYpe-A
  • 1 x USB 2.0 Type-A
  • 1 x 3.5mm audio
  • 1 x DC power input

The system supports WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity.

While the SER6 and SER6 Pro don’t have quite as much horsepower (or quite as many ports) as the company’s recently-launched GTR6 mini PC, it does have a smaller chassis and a lower starting price.

  1. HDMI 2.0?! Nooooooooo!! Why not 2.1?! This would make so much sense as a media PC, for 4k 24fps movies. Without that it’s useless.

    1. unfortunately 2.0 can be classified as 2.1 now so even if it says 2.1 you don’t know what you’re getting unless they provide more information like claims of 8k or such.

  2. I’m not going to spend over $500 for one of these, only to find out the hardware is incompatible with Linux. I bet the Wifi adapter isn’t supported natively by Debian or Ubuntu Linux for example. No Wifi support? No Deal!

    1. I’d look into what card is used, you might just be surprised – I have a low-end Beelink Mini-S (Celeron N5095) and the Intel wifi card in there is easily supported by any sort of recent linux distro I have thrown at it so far.
