Beelink GTR6 6900HX Mini PC Review
The flagship model GTR series of the Mini PC mainframe brand "Beelink" has ushered in a new generation, namely the Beelink GTR6. Compared with the previous generation GTR5, the performance of the Beelink GTR6 has been greatly improved. For example: In terms of graphics card, when the previous generation GTR5 played some games at 1920*1080 resolution, it could only achieve a good FPS by turning on the low and medium picture quality, while GTR6 can play at the highest picture quality at the same or even higher resolution. Play with quality. At the same time, as far as the current situation is concerned, Beelink GTR6 is also the model with the highest performance at present.
As for the product positioning of Beelink GTR6, there are multiple products, such as: stock machine, business office/design (with 4 HDMI ports, which can be connected to multiple monitors to watch stocks, design, office, etc.) and high performance, etc., which can satisfy many aspects Demanding users are not single-positioned Mini PC. So in this article, I will briefly talk about the appearance design, performance and other aspects of the performance and experience of the new Mini PC host of Beelink.
Design and Appearance
I won’t show you the unpacking part of Beelink GTR6 . In fact, there is not much to show. The things that come with the factory are basically the same as the previous generation. Let’s get to the point quickly. Removable cloth-covered top cover, rich interfaces, and fingerprint module
Beelink GTR6 's appearance size is not big, its length, width and height are: 168mm*120mm*43mm, it can be easily held with one hand, it is like a router on the table, it basically does not take up much space, and it is not a problem to carry it when going out. Not big, I think it lives up to the "mini" title. However, everyone may have a different opinion on "mini", so this is just my personal opinion.
Compared with the previous generation, the top design of the Beelink GTR6 has changed a lot, from the non-detachable metal mesh to the detachable breathable cloth-covered top cover, which further improves the design sense of the whole machine. At the same time, there is also a fingerprint module in the lower right corner of the top of the fuselage. It should be noted that this fingerprint module can be pressed down and integrates a power supply function. Press it with the finger that has entered the fingerprint, so that the fingerprint unlocking can be completed at the same time as the boot, so as to quickly enter the system, that is to say, the Beelink GTR6 has two power buttons, one is conventional and the other can be simultaneously Realize fingerprint booting and unlocking.
Here I use a moving picture to show you the fingerprint unlocking speed of the next Beelink GTR6 , which is very fast and unlocks in seconds.
Beelink GTR6 has two cooling fans , one of which can be seen after removing the top cover.
Beelink GTR6 also specially designed the top cover with breathable cloth covering in different colors, which is quite a taste of DIY gameplay. I personally feel that some patterned top covers can be produced in the future, or customization can be supported, so as to create an exclusive personal Beelink GTR6.
The Beelink GTR6 is replaced with a different color breathable cloth cover and the effect is real. In addition, I personally feel that this top cover should be better in terms of dust resistance than the previous generation of metal mesh.
There is not much to say about the bottom design of Beelink GTR6 , which is similar to the previous generation, with two non-slip silicone pads, some parameter information and holes for installing wall-mounted brackets (a bracket and several screw).
And after removing the bottom cover, you can see the fan bracket of Beelink GTR6 , here is another cooling fan of Beelink GTR6 , and the cooling bracket also supports disassembly, which is convenient for users to replace hard disks, memory and other operations. At the same time, the dual-fan design also allows Beelink GTR6 to have outstanding heat dissipation performance and run stably.
At the same time, I also used AIDA64 to test the "single-baked FPU" of the Beelink GTR6. After 10 minutes of testing, the CPU Diode temperature was at 70°C, and then continued to test for 10 minutes. After a total of 20 minutes of testing, the temperature remained at 70°C. It shows that the heat dissipation is very stable, and there is no situation where it cannot be suppressed.
Beelink GTR6 is designed with dual hard drives/memory slots, users can add or replace the pre-installed hard drives and memory sticks according to their personal needs. In addition, Beelink GTR6 memory supports up to 32GB single-channel and 64GB DDR5 4800MHz; the hard drive supports up to 2TB M.2 2280 NVMe SSD.
Beelink GTR6 is also "rich and comprehensive" in terms of interfaces as always. The front of the fuselage is equipped with a conventional power switch, RTC Key, USB3.0, Type-C and 3.5mm headphone jack, but it is a pity that this Type-C The interface does not support the video output function.
In addition, at the rear of the fuselage, Beelink GTR6 is equipped with 4 HDMI ports supporting 8K resolution 60FPS, 2 USB3.0, 2 USB2.0, LAN ports and DC power ports.
For users who need multiple screen displays, it can be said that Beelink GTR6 is very suitable for you.
It is worth mentioning that the package of Beelink GTR6 also comes with two 8K HDMI cables, one long and one short.
As for the body of Beelink GTR6 , it is made of metal material, and the overall workmanship is good. The hollowed-out metal mesh on both sides of the body is also very "appropriate" with the English landmark of GTR. Naturally, I don't need to say more about the meaning, everyone should understand it.
Equipped with AMD Ryzen 9-6900HX high-performance processor, you can play AAA games with high quality.
Simple installation and layout, creating a simple desktop can also be said to be one of the highlights of Mini PC such as Beelink GTR6 . For example, my current desktop is much simpler than when I used a laptop.
Having said so many exterior designs, what is the overall performance of Beelink GTR6 ? I used Master Lu to conduct a hardware evaluation, and I can see that the comprehensive performance score of Beelink GTR6 is 1113814 points. This score surprised me a bit. I really didn’t expect that a Mini PC mainframe can run out of a million points.
As for the specific hardware parameters, there are currently two versions of Beelink GTR6 , one of which is a barebone version, which has no memory and hard disk and needs to be installed by the user; the other is a 32GB memory/500GB hard disk version, the hardware parameters of this version Yes: The processor is AMD Ryzen 9-6900HX; the graphics card is AMD Radeon 680M core display with RDNA2 graphics architecture; the memory is composed of two DDR5 4800MHz 16GB; the hard disk is Kingston.
The official said that the reading speed of Beelink GTR6 is about 7000MB/s. I have also measured this in my experience. The reading results are close to the official results. If it is more realistic, it is actually faster than the official results.
Beelink GTR6 passed the Time Spy test of 3DMARK, and it can be seen that the score is 2640, and the graphics card score is 2358. This score is not inferior to some independent graphics cards.
The PCMARK 10 score of Beelink GTR6 is 6577 points.
The outstanding performance allows Beelink GTR6 to play various PC games with high image quality. Taking Genshin impact as an example, Beelink GTR6 can reach about 30 FPS at 2560*1440 resolution and high image quality.
When entering a scene with fewer textures, the FPS can reach about 40.
If the image quality is adjusted to medium, the FPS can reach 60, while the previous generation Beelink GTR5 can only be played at 1920*1080 resolution and low image quality, and the FPS can reach 60.
Beelink GTR6 plays Cyberpunk 2077 at 1920*1080 resolution and medium image quality, and the FPS can reach about 30.
If you keep the original resolution and adjust the image quality to the lowest level, the FPS can reach about 40.
Also at the resolution of 1920*1080, the FPS can reach about 30 when playing Elden’s Ring with the highest image quality, and the FPS will also increase in scenes with few textures.
In addition, this article is also a simple comprehensive experience, so I will not show more about the game experience. In the follow-up article, I will write a separate article about the experience of playing games with Beelink GTR6 , because the performance of Beelink GTR6 is really good. , if the previous generation Beelink GTR5 can play PC games, then Beelink GTR6 can play smoothly. At the same time, through the above-mentioned simple game test, it can also be seen from the side that the performance of the Beelink GTR6 is really outstanding. In addition to meeting business office, design drawing or video editing, it can also meet the moderate game experience and can completely replace some traditional ones Mini PC.
By the way, the above-mentioned Beelink GTR6 test games are all carried out under the power consumption of 35W, and the Beelink GTR6 can also be set to 45W, but the fan sound will be slightly louder after setting 45W.
Because it is small and mini, easy to install and install, there are actually many usage scenarios for Beelink GTR6 , and it does not have to be connected to a monitor. It can be connected to a smart projector or a smart TV, just like I bought one at home. The 4K TV system has stopped updating for a long time, and it feels stuck in daily use. At this time, the TV can be upgraded by installing the Beelink GTR6 .
Personally, I feel that the launch of Beelink GTR6 has pushed Beelink's Mini PC mainframe products to a new level. It is smaller than some traditional computer mainframes, and its performance is not inferior or even comparable. If you have multiple screens Display connection requirements, create a simple office desktop, or simply want to start a high-performance Mini PC host, for now, I recommend the Beelink GTR6 , and the highlights of the Beelink GTR6 are not only multiple interfaces, small appearance, High performance only, such as dual-fan design, stable operation, fingerprint unlocking, cloth-covered top cover, etc., these are the highlights of Beelink GTR6 .
As for the shortcomings, Beelink GTR6 has no speaker design, and the Type-C interface on the front does not support video output.
