The body size is 117*112*45.6mm and the volume is 0.6L, which is not much larger than the ordinary set-top box. In addition to placing it on the desktop without taking up space, users can also use the VESA Mount bracket that comes with the product to hang the mini host on the back of the monitor. The shell of the fuselage is made of high-density ABS+PC material, and the interior uses a magnesium-aluminum alloy shock-absorbing frame, so the weight is not light, reaching 565g.
The interface of the fuselage is quite rich, including 2 USB4.0 Type-C interfaces, 3 USB3.2 Gen2 Type-A interfaces, 1 HDMI2.0, 1 Mini DisplayPort 1.4, 1 thousand Mega Ethernet port, 1 SD card slot, 1 3.5mm audio interface, and 1 DC-in power interface.
Both USB4.0 Type-C interfaces support video output, plus HDMI and Mini DP, GEEKOM Mini IT11 can support up to four 4K display outputs at the same time, which is very suitable for office and some productivity tasks.
There are two DDR4-3200 memory slots inside the fuselage, which supports up to 64GB of dual-channel memory. 1 M.2 2280 slot, can support up to 2TB PCle/SATA SSD. One 2.5-inch SATA hard disk interface, which can support up to 2TB HDD/SSD, and the internal expansion capability is quite good. However, the current official pre-sale memory/storage combination is 16GB DDR4+512GB NVMe SSD, and no other storage options are provided. The inside of the fuselage uses a silent fan for active heat dissipation, and the shell is also equipped with a lot of cooling holes.
In terms of processors, the GEEKOM Mini IT11 has two specifications for consumers to choose from, including Intel Core i5-1135G7 and i7-1165G7. The leading processors all adopt a quad-core and eight-thread CPU architecture and integrate Iris Xe Graphics core graphics card. In terms of absolute performance, the i7-1165G7 has a 20%-30% lead over the i5-1135G7, but the price of the i7 version is also $100 higher than the i5 version (about 667 yuan). In fact, for most users, the comprehensive performance provided by the i5-1135G7 can already meet the needs of use. After all, it is also the chip chosen by many thin and light notebooks in 2021.
GEEKOM Mini IT11 is pre-installed with genuine Windows 11 professional operating system, which has more functions than the ordinary home version. At the same time, this mini host can also support the installation of Linux-based operating systems including Ubuntu, Android x86, UOS and FydeOS, etc.
