    Measuring 15cm Minisforum now offers their new and tiny HM80. A low-power PC that is so small that you can mount this fully fetched Windows 10 Ready PC behind your monitor, heck it will even fit in th...

    WOW - what a beauty!

    Now the Intel-NUCs get strong competition. :)

    Kinda funny how it manages to keep up with a 1800X. Sure shows how much progress AMD made.

    when my old core 2 duo in my living room dies this (or the successor) will be replacing it. i can toss out the old silverstone sff case (crap cooling anyways tbh) and gain space and spec where it counts. already ditched the blu-ray and i can stream games from my gaming rig to this. and vesa mount it to boot.

    Can you get it to work on an RV 12 volt system?

    I agree but then again you see the prices for some of the latest Intel NUC $1k

    I do not know, can you build a full pc with similar larger components for 760$ today?
    Do you give to saved space some added value?

    I tend to agree. It's probably about right for what it is but I can get by with quite a bit less. For my streaming uses I got a couple of mini-PCs for less than 300 and they do just fine for that purpose. Admittedly, not much more than that but I have other machines for other purposes.

    When my HTPC dies, or when I lose Win10 support in 4 years' times, I'd prolly look at something similar to this. Small enough to be portable as I might be shuttling between my country and Thailand (where if things works out, I'll be staying for extended periods) so having a small PC like this helps.

    Who knows, perhaps by then, the built-in iGPU may be capable of real 1080P gaming, 4K gaming would be better and I sure as hell hope hardware-wise, we'd have reached that state....at least, one can always dream, right?

    Two questions...

    1. Does this have, or can it accommodate, a TPM 2.0 jammie?

    2. What the hell is going on with the reported 1.518V and 1.656V Core Voltage numbers in CPU-Z and AIDA64, respectively?

    fTPM is on the CPU.
