    Intel released a new ultra-low-power AtomGemini lake processor. The launch of the Gemini lake processor is an upgrade ofthe Apollo lake processor. Intel's processor for low-power applications did not“squeeze toothpaste” as it did before. Instead, it was a brand-new upgrade..The performance of each specification isgreatly enhanced.isgreatly enhanced.

Gemin lake processor is divided into twoseries, J series for Desktop products, as long as the performance, processorfrequency 1.5G-2.8G.N series for Mobile mainly reflect the low-power processorfrequency 1.1G-2.7G. There are some important specification upgrades. Pleasecheck the details specifications on the Intel official website www.intel.com
A, Processor's secondary cache is upgraded to4M, and Intel's eighth-generation Kaby R I3-8130U secondary cache is also 4M;
B. The graphics card was upgraded to Graphics605 and the frequency was upgraded to 800MHz. Intel eighth generation Kaby RI3-8130U graphics Graphics 620, frequency 1000MHz.
C, Memory is upgraded to DDR 4 2400MHz, thesame as Intel's eighth-generation Kaby R I3-8130U/I5-8250U;
D. The display interface supports dual HDMI2.0a 60Hz with a resolution of 4096*2160P 4K. Specifications same as Intel'seighth-generation Kaby R I3-8130U/I5-8250U;
E. The video codec supports H.265 10bit, VP910bit,
With the upgrading of such importantspecifications, some of the specifications are already the same as those ofI3/I5, and there will be a qualitative leap in performance. The Gemini lakeprocessor will become an important member of the low-power MINI PC family, andit will also better meet the needs of users in the office and homeentertainment.
  
1We have been fortunate to get the Beelink Gemini X Series MINI PC, Theperformance of Intel Gemini Lake processor is tested in detail.
First Specification
There are 3 versions of the Beelink Gemini Xseries, as follows: INTEL Gemini lake Pentium and Celeron processors are used. Pleasecheck the form

Both the Basic and Premium use the Geminilake Celeron J4105 processor. The difference is in memory and storage. Thebasic of the standard storage is On Board 3D EMMC Flash. Users can expandMsata's standard SDD and SATA 3.0 standard mechanically hard disks. Premium ofmemory increased to 6G, storage is using Msata 128G SSD, the user's ownexpansion SATA 2.5-inch technology hard drive.
The Ultimate version of the CPU is upgradedto the Pentium J5005 with a frequency of up to 2.8G and comes standard with 8Gof memory. Storage Msata 128G SDD is also standard, Users can expand their ownSATA 2.5-inch mechanical hard drives

2、Second appearance

The middle frame and the bottom shell aremade of metal aluminum, which can increase the heat dissipation without losingthe high-end atmosphere. The size is very small, 115MM*102MM*43MM, It’sbelonging the extremely product in the Mini PC.

3、Third WIFI antenna design

It is well known that metal has a shieldingeffect on WIFI signals. Gemini X solves this problem very well. The top shellis made of transparent plastic and direct acrylic cover. The WIFI antenna ismounted directly on the luminaire and then the acrylic panel is installed. Thereis no effect on WIFI.

4、Fourth rich interface
Intel Gemini lake mini pc Beelink Gemini X45 X55  review atom J5005 J4105 pentiu.jpg
Two HDMI 2.0a, output 4K image resolution, supportssimultaneous display of different task modes. So that we can work and deal withother tasks at the same time. Four USB 3.0 interfaces can basically meet theneeds of customers. Others also support Gigabit LAN, Audio R L/MIC.

5、storage expansion

    Gemini X stores three configurations,namely 64G/128G/128G. If you want to expand the storage of a larger capacity,you can configure the 2.5-inch mechanical hard disk 1T/2T by yourself. The mechanicalhard disk is used only for storage and is not used as a system startup driver.Doesn’t affect the performance of the machine. However, the 2.5-inch hard diskis not a standard configuration and requires the customer to purchase andinstall it. The customer's own installation design is quite simple, only needto remove the bottom shell, install the hard disk on the bottom shell, andconnect the data cable.

6、accessories

The accessories on the Gemini X comestandard with two HDMI data cables, which can be used in two environments: oneis to use the device on the desktop, and the HDMI cable is 80MM. The second isto install the device to the back of the monitor through the bracket, then usethe 30MM data cable. This ergonomic design also reflects Beelink mini PC'scustomer-centric philosophy.
   
After introducing the overall machine, I testthe performance of the machine

   PC mark is use for officeperformance testing software, such as web browsing, Office software, PS,pictures and video processing, VP9 216P4K video.

Let's take a look at the results of the threeconfigurations.

Storage speed test
Intel Gemini lake mini pc Beelink Gemini X45 X55  review atom J5005 J4105 pentiu.jpg From the above test data, it is knownthat the GeminiX Basic Edition Onboard 64G 3D EMMC flash reads and writesslower than the advanced 128G SSD. The read/write speed of the mechanical harddisk is 76MB/s, the read/write speed of the basic version is quadruple that of the mechanical hard disk, and the read/writespeed of the advanced version is 6.3 times that of the mechanical hard disk.With the speed of these solid-state SSDs, there is no case of stalling inoffice documents and video.
  GeminiX uses On Board 3D EMMCFLASH and solid-state SSD flash. It doesn’t use cheaper 2D flash. It doesconsider the use of office environment. It is the same as INTEL's promotion ofAo Teng's solid-state SSD.
Heat dissipation/power consumption
  Heat dissipation is a problemthat all computers will face. High temperature machines will cause variousproblems. Intle designs the CPU and protects the CPU. If the temperature ishigher than the safe value, the CPU will automatically reduce the frequency,but this will affect The performance of the device,  all heat dissipation is a crucial part. TheINTEL Gemini lake J series is designed for a maximum power consumption of 10W,which is 5W less than the INTEL's eight generation Kaby R I3/I5. The thermaldesign of the Gemini X product is a pure copper fin plus a fan for activecooling. The heat generated by the CPU is introduced into the copper throughthe copper sheet, and the fan is used to take the heat away from the air toachieve fan heat.
   There are two technicalindicators of heat dissipation, thermal conductivity and heat dissipationcoefficient. The GeminiX uses copper as the heat-conducting medium and the heatdissipation uses the fan to actively dissipate heat. Both of these are the bestheat dissipation solutions.

Temperature test
Test environment: The Intel thermal Analysistool tool runs at full load and the hard drive reads simultaneously
Temperature result: 73 degrees Celsius
With such a small MINI PC, this temperatureeffect is well controlled.

Noise
On the GeminiX, notebook heat dissipation wasused. The CPU was heavily loaded and the sound was measured at a distance of 10cm from the PC, which was about 57 dB.

Although our products use desktop-class CPUsand notebook cooling methods, they do not emit the kind of low-pitched hum ofnotebooks. Even at full load, the sound is still very low. The contrastingambient sounds are only With a rise of about 7dB, the fan's noise is almostnegligible and will not cause any impact on the user.


Sum up

Intel Gemini lake mini pc Beelink Gemini X45 X55  review atom J5005 J4105 pentiu.jpg
MINI PC is very petite in product design,which also allows it to adapt to more use of the environment, very easy tocarry, Due to the restriction of size, many consumers are worried about theirperformance. However, we can see from the test that our Gemini X is still excellentin terms of performance.Although it can't be compared with traditional desktopcomputers, it doesn't lose to some laptop products on the market. Therefore,users don’t have to feel for our product performance concern, because it isfully able to meet the daily needs of users, whether it is home audio and videoentertainment, or daily mobile office, are fully able to support, but also hasa notebook does not have low power consumption, low temperature and low noise.
