After a week of using the AMD Betin Branded thin client PC, here are the highlights.
Windows 10 genuine license
Fast boot (around 2~3 seconds)
Runs butter smooth.
Apps open up fast. I guess that NVMe SSD is doing wonders.
Yet to notice any lag from opening countless of tabs on Brave and Chrome running at the same time with MS Excel with tons of data and I mean tons of data, and media player playing HD videos.
All these running at the same time. My laptop freezes if I do that, especially when you try to switch tabs or apps.
I noticed that the AMD Radeon R1E does the heavy lifting for media or anything that requires graphics processing. And it does well with flying colors. The processor
Power consumption. The thing consumes around 3 amps of power. That’s what most laptops consume.
Doesn’t overheat. It get’s warm. But will keep monitoring this. Probably use an intense software like a video editor and see how it will perform.
It feels plasticky* especially the power button. But that’s okay anyway.
The fan is silent but can feel noisy in a silent room. It’s the same feeling when you buy a laptop and it’s silent for months then after a while you notice that fan noise. I solved mine on the laptop by cleaning and oiling the fan. I guess with time I’ll open the PC and do the same.
I don’t like the sound quality. It has the same hardware as my laptop. Realtek soundcard but I’m not sure why the treble is too high.
I saw there’s separate audio hardware for AMD but I’m yet to try enable it. Will dig deeper with time.
Other than that, I love it. My bro has seen and he’s going to buy one too to replace his tower PC.
I’m looking forward to editing some videos. Will post an update.
