X500 mini pc evaluation, Ryzen 7 5700G office experience is full


AMD released the Ryzen 5000G series processors last year. As a new generation of APUs, the Ryzen 5000G series continues the strong ZEN3 architecture features. Its performance is second only to the conventional Ryzen 5000 processors, and because of the advanced 7nm process, the power consumption is reduced. It is further reduced, and it also comes with a core graphics card, which has become the new favorite of office users. Most of the Mini PC that are very popular in the office field are also integrated with the Ryzen 5000G series processors. The advantage of the Mini PC is that it basically does not take up space, and the Ryzen 5000G can improve the performance of the Mini PC. At present, most office scenarios have been changed to online. The Mini PC equipped with the Ryzen 5000G processor has low power consumption and good mute effect. The office performance is also excellent, which is suitable for the large environment of home remote office.

The EliteMini X500 we reviewed today is a mini pc using the Ryzen 7 5700G processor. The Ryzen 7 5700G is a high-end processor with 8 cores and 16 threads. It is also the flagship model of the Ryzen 5000G. Its performance in mini PC products is very exciting.

01 Small size, high integration

This EliteMini X500 is 15.4cm long, 15.26cm wide and 6.67cm high, which can be easily integrated into various office environments without taking up space. And because of the highly integrated interface features of mini pc, it is easy to manage cables on the desktop.

The power switch is on the front of the fuselage, below the heat dissipation vent, and a dual audio interface is provided on the left side, which can output and input audio at the same time.

A TF card interface is provided on the side of the fuselage, and photographers can directly transmit picture and video data through this interface, eliminating the need for a TF card reader. Next to it is a LINE IN audio input interface for capturing streaming audio, which is very helpful when performing live broadcasts. In addition, there is a MIC IN microphone input and a LINE OUT output interface.

The I/O interface on the back of the host is also rich. It is equipped with an HDMI and a DP interface, which can output 4K 60Hz pictures and expand two additional screens, which requires multi-screen function creators, or some data analysts can use it directly. In addition, there are two Gigabit Ethernet ports, and four USB 3.2 GEN1 ports are left. The power port and anti-theft hole are also located here.

02 All-round cooling

Except for the bottom, the EliteMini X500 provides dense heat dissipation holes on the other sides, which is convenient for quickly dissipating heat under high load. There are no heat dissipation holes at the bottom, and the four corners are reinforced with screws. It is easy to disassemble, because this mini pc also reserves space, and the simple structure is convenient for users to upgrade and use in the future.

03 Strong expansion, upgradeable

After disassembling the EliteMini X500 case, you can see that a large down-pressure air-cooled radiator is used inside, covering almost the entire motherboard. Below the radiator is the Ryzen 7 5700G, an 8-core 16-thread processor.

The EliteMini X500 has a 512GB M.2 2280 NVMe SSD on the bottom with memory and hard drives. At the same time, it can be seen that this mini pc also reserves a SATA hard disk position and an M.2 2242 SATA hard disk position, which is equivalent to a total of 3 hard disk positions. One has been used, and there are still two hard disk positions for everyone to upgrade. use.

Below the SATA hard drive are two SODIMMs. Most notebooks and mini PCs use this type of memory.

The wireless network card is not absent, saving some office environments without wired networks, and the Bluetooth function is integrated inside, and devices such as wireless keyboards and mice can be directly connected.

The accessories provide an HDMI cable, manual, dust filter and external bracket, which can be hung on the back of the monitor that supports this function to achieve "zero space" occupation to a certain extent.

04 Practical test

Next, let's start the actual combat test. First, use Master Lu to check the configuration of this mini pc and use Master Lu to run a score.

Master Lu's score

The new version of Master Lu has revised the running points rules. The final score of this mini pc is 878935. Master Lu shows that this mini pc can run LOL, DOTA and other online games and PS software smoothly, and this is indeed the Ryzen 7 5700G and VEGA 8 What nuclear can do.

CPU test:

Next, the CPU test is carried out. The test software is CINEBENCH R20, which can test the single-threaded and multi-threaded benchmark performance of the processor.

Power consumption

AIDA64 tested the FPU and CPU dual copying, and the copying machine took half an hour. At this time, the CPU diode temperature was 92 °C, and the load was extremely high. Generally, such a load pressure cannot be achieved in daily use. However, this mini pc is running stably without any adverse reactions. The TDP power consumption of the Ryzen 7 5700G itself is low, only 65W, while the standby power consumption of this mini pc is about 10.8W, and the power consumption of the copy machine has risen to 83.2W. This is a power-saving mini pc. Will bring power consumption pressure.

05 Worry-free office

In general, this generation of APUs did not disappoint everyone. Based on the new ZEN3 architecture and 7nm process, the Ryzen 7 5700G not only has powerful performance, but also has low power consumption. No wonder it will become the mainstream choice for high-end mini PCs.

The EliteMini X500 equipped with the Ryzen 7 5700G can meet the needs of users for daily office forms, documents, and creative applications such as graphics Adobe. Ryzen 7 5700G has low power consumption and has little pressure on heat dissipation. Usually, high-performance hosts will generate a lot of noise when used at home due to heat dissipation problems. Mini pc reduces the size as much as possible while ensuring quietness. Portability, but also reduce the footprint, it is very suitable for remote work at home. This mini pc itself integrates dual video interfaces, and the Ryzen 5000G's nuclear display can output two 4K 60Hz video images at the same time, which effectively improves work efficiency, and is easy to control in areas such as stock machines that require multi-screen expansion.

EliteMini X500 also provides a variety of configuration options, Ryzen 7 5700G is just one of them, it is the highest configuration, users with low budget can match Ryzen 5 5600G, which is also based on ZEN3 architecture like Ryzen 7 5700G, suitable for light content Creators and daily office fields.
