Code on the package, 20W consumption and 95 FPS in League of Legends. All features of Xiaomi Host Mini desktop PC

A large review of Xiaomi’s first desktop computer, a device called Host Mini, has been published on the Web. It gives a complete picture of what Host Mini is and what it is suitable for.

To begin with, we need to recall that Xiaomi Host Mini is built on a 12-core Core i5-1240P processor, with 4 high-performance cores and 8 power-efficient ones. The CPU supports 16 threads. CPU TDP is 35W. The preconfigured version we reviewed has a 512GB SSD and two 8GB SO-DIMMs.

The package with seven lines of code on one side looks interesting.

The cooling system is hidden under the bottom cover. It looks like a laptop, only scaled up – four times larger. The large fan is complemented by two copper heat pipes. Given the TDP of the processor, we can say that such a system, unlike a laptop system, will definitely not allow it to overheat and go into throttling.

In the end, the reviewers conclude: Xiaomi Host Mini is definitely not suitable for playing AAA games, but its capabilities are more than enough for office work and entertainment (watching videos). At the same time, it consumes much less than a regular PC. With a slightly higher initial cost than similar traditional format computers, this PC wins in compactness and saves on electricity bills.
