Size matters


When we flip the unit around, we see a small mini-pc of its kind; it measures only 17x 12x 4cm in size. The Beelink GTR6's body is constructed from a rigid material with holes on the sides and ventilation grills on the back to allow the internal fan to easily vent hot air. The saying fan takes cold air from the center and distributes it throughout the interior of the mini PC to maintain the optimal temperature of all components. Its cooling system also has an aluminum heatsink dedicated exclusively to the SSD NVMe units. This keeps the small PC's internal temperature below 80 degrees Celcius, even during the most taxing work or games. We were impressed by the mini PC's thoughtful design, especially the small rubber tab on the bottom that serves as a handle for removing the bottom cover when extra storage space is needed or additional RAM is desired. 


At the bottom you'll see rubber pads; remove these and you'll stumble into screws that needs to come out if we want to open it up.


The two slots for DDR5 RAM are preloaded with a total of 32 GB. One 512 GB M.2 2280 NVMe PCIe slot, with room for a second M.2 2280 SSD (NVMe or SATA) if desired. In addition, a third M.2 2230 slot was used to incorporate a WiFi 6E card. Intel is present inside this unit, the network card is configured by an I225-V Ethernet controller allowing a 2.5 Gbps connection. 



The Beelink GTR6 6900HX Ultra-compact desktop is among the most potent small PCs available.  The package includes an AC converter, a wall mount bracket, and an HDMI cable. It has two slots for SO-DIMM memory cards (currently using two 16 GB modules) and two slots for 2280 form factor M.2 NVMe solid-state drives.  WiFi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2 make up for reliable and swift wireless connectivity.


Now we had to look twice here, but that WIFI module originates from AMD as well, it registers back as RZ608, and that's AMD's Wi-Fi 6E module that's a rebranded MediaTek MT7921K module with an AMD logo on it.  We'll test this unit intensely on the 2.4, 5 and 6 GHz WIFI frequencies.


Small tip for Beelink. The buttons colors are too much out there; make them black ... also the stickers there don't look really nice.
