Yes, you read that correctly – Mini PCs are now a viable platform for PC gaming, a revelation that has likely eluded many.

In this article, we will delve into the Beelink SER7 Mini PC, armed with the AMD7840HS processor, to shed light on the evolving landscape of Mini PCs. We will subject it to rigorous testing, exploring its capabilities and potential use cases, to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of what the Mini PC of today truly represents. So, if you've ever wondered whether a Mini PC could replace your larger desktop computer, or if you're simply intrigued by the latest innovations in the world of compact computing, read on as we embark on this journey to demystify the Mini PC.


The Mini PC, known as the Beelink SER7, is a remarkable device that takes advantage of laptop hardware to achieve a remarkably compact size. Measuring just 12.5cm by 11cm by 5cm in overall volume, it exemplifies portability without compromising on functionality. This Mini PC is designed to adapt to various usage scenarios, seamlessly pairing with monitors, keyboards, and mice to provide a versatile computing experience. Moreover, it caters to individual preferences with a choice of four elegant colors: classic black, sleek gray, vibrant jet green, and striking orange. Whether you need a powerful yet compact computing solution for work or play, the Beelink SER7 is a versatile choice that combines style and functionality.

Although the sparrow is small, it has all the internal components. This sentence can also be used to describe the Mini PC. The Beelink SER7 is relatively rich in interfaces. First of all, on the front, it is designed with commonly used headphone interfaces, type-C interfaces, and USB 3.0 interfaces. This compact yet versatile Mini PC packs a surprising amount of functionality into its diminutive frame, much like the resilient sparrow that, despite its size, manages to house all the necessary components for survival. The Beelink SER7's front panel showcases its thoughtful design, offering users easy access to essential interfaces for seamless connectivity and performance.

Then on the back of the fuselage, there is also a LAN port (2.5G), two USB2.0 interfaces, a DP video interface, an HDMI video interface, a rear audio interface and two USB4.0 that support the graphics card dock. The interface is sufficient for ordinary people without the need for a docking station. In addition, some people may ask, why not put two USB3.0 interfaces here? In fact, these two interfaces are mainly used to install the wireless mouse adapter. USB2.0 can effectively avoid signal interference and make the wireless mouse more stable to use.

To enhance heat dissipation capabilities, the fuselage incorporates a clever hollow design along its sides.

The identical metal filter serves a dual purpose, as it is also employed on the upper section of the fuselage. Upon closer inspection, one can discern a faint outline of the cooling fan concealed beneath it. Extending further below the fan, a substantial VC vapor chamber occupies a significant area. It can be asserted that the heat dissipation design in this aircraft is truly exceptional, leaving no room for doubt in its efficiency and effectiveness.

The bottom of the fuselage uses a closed metal cover, and a magnetic power supply interface can also be seen here. It seems that several recent Mini PCs from Beelink have adopted this bottom magnetic interface design. The reason for the design seems to be to reserve more space for the expansion interface on the back of the fuselage. Of course, if you don’t like to use the magnetic interface, you can also directly use a PD charging head greater than 100 watts to power the Beelink SER7.

Performance and Benchmarks

Regarding the placement of the Mini PC, I think it can be directly fixed on the back of the monitor, so that the monitor can be used as an all-in-one computer.
