MINISFORUM has begun taking pre-orders for a mini desktop computer powered by a 45-watt Intel Core i5-11260H processor based on Intel Tiger Lake architecture.
The MINISFORUM Elitemini TH60 has a retail price of $639 for a model with 16GB of RAM and 512GB of solid state storage, but it’s up for pre-order now for $539. The little computer is expected to begin shipping by the end of May.
The computer is powered by Intel’s 6-core, 12-thread processor with support for speeds up to 4.4 GHz. While that should help the Elitemini TH60 deliver decent CPU performance, this might not be the best choice for gaming or video and graphics work, as the computer features Intel UHD integrated graphics with 16 execution units rather than Intel’s higher-performance Iris Xe graphics.
The Elitemini TH60 measures 7.2″ x 7″ x 1.4″ and features room inside for up to 64GB of DDR4 memory (with two SODIMM slots) and a PCIe 4.0 x1 slot for solid state storage as well as an M.2 2230 slot occupied by a wireless card. There’s also a fan inside the case for active cooling.
