SER4-X Mini Linux PC Review

Today we are going to take a look at Beelink’s brand new Manjaro Linux-powered mini PC which is known as SER4-X. It is also employing AMD Ryzen 7 8 core, 16 thread APU with built-in Radeon graphics. We definitely have a  super small form factor PC that already has its prequel known as SER4. It is widely available in online retail stores by the way.

Mini PC’s Ryzen 7 4800U has got 8 cores, and 16 threads that proudly present the base clock of 1.8GHz and boost power up to 4.2GHz. Inside the APU we have Radeon 8 graphics that work at 1750MHz. The RAM comes in the form of 16-32GB DDR4 with a frequency of 3200MHz. Without a wireless connection, mini PCs couldn’t be so popular when laptops were able to replace them. SER4-X does have a WiFi 6e-BT 5.2.

Since the Steam Deck release, there was an enormous interest in Linux gaming. So we are definitely going to get into that but using this as a decent desktop. This works out fine even if it has 8GB of RAM. The 4800U has more than enough power for your daily tasks such as web browsing, document, spreadsheet creating, and many more. However, you can also play on this mini PC.

In YouTube video playback we witnessed 4k 60 FPS video was pretty smooth and clear in image changes. A few minutes later we tried playing Elden Ring which was so lagging in all settings at most 30 FPS. Testing Project Cars 2 delivered poor results too. We concluded that gaming on this PC isn’t strongly recommended unless you want to play low-end user games that require budget hardware specs.

Overall, SER4-X is perfect for office tasks and retro gaming. Soon it will arrive at major online retailers. Final thoughts from its end users we will surely get immediately then.
