Chinese PC maker NVISEN has released NVISEN MU04, a mini-PC with Core i5 8265U and GeForce MX230 GPU; with MX230, gaming and image processing are its forte.
The MU04 is an Intel Core5 8265U machine with middle-level performance, but its most distinctive feature is its GeForece MX230 graphics board.
Although benchmarks have not been published, the MX230 is capable of assisting with graphics processing and should perform better than onboard graphics for image/video editing. However, heavy games will probably be tough, and information on the Internet suggests that FF15 and other games will be judged heavy.
Memory is 8GB and storage is 256GB/512GB PCIe (NVMe) SSD. The inside of the unit has not been disclosed, but due to its thinness of 3.3cm, 2.5″ HDD/SSD may not be able to be added. Up to 64GB of memory is supported by the refill. It has 2 HDMI x2 and 1 DPx, so you can have multiple displays with up to 3 displays.
Expansion ports are not so different from those of other manufacturers’ products, but they are abundant enough.
The chassis design itself is not much different from the MU02 and lacks freshness, but the price is initially around $599.99 for a Core i7 + 16GB + 512GB configuration. With a current-level Core i7, 16GB of high-capacity RAM, 512GB PCIe high-speed storage, and Win11 pre-installed, this price is honestly too good to be true.
