Beelink GTi11 mini PC workstation review

30-second review 

The GTi11 is the most powerful Intel-based mini PC from Beelink and it struggles to tip the value-for-money scale favorably towards it, especially as it doesn’t offer the only major advantage that an Intel platform can currently offer, Thunderbolt 4. Put it simply, Beelink’s AMD-based workstations offer much better value for money albeit at a slightly higher premium. 

That doesn’t mean the GTi11 is a bad product, far from that. It is powered by one of Intel’s fastest quad-core mobile processors, has a generous amount of memory and storage plus some great features like dual 2.5GbE LAN port, support for 8K video, a fingerprint reader, dual microphones and much more. 

The issue is that for a small premium, Beelink offers the same PC but with an AMD Ryzen 9 4900H, a CPU that’s almost twice as powerful than the Core i5 in the GTi 11 and obliterates it in most benchmarks. This makes it unlikely to make any best workstation (opens in new tab) list, unless you’re dedicated to using Intel.
