Mini PCs Market

For instance, in March 2023, ASRock, a leader in small-form factor PCs, released a Mini PC Jupiter 600 line. The series delivers strong efficiency in a compact design. It provides comprehensive connectivity with nine USB ports including a USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-C on each front & rear panel, three displays, and a COM port, making it ideal for businesses, digital signage, and POS systems. The Jupiter 600 series can display videos and images in high resolution and supports two DisplayPort, and one HDMI connectors at the same time to increase productivity and efficiency at work.

Technological advancements in mini PCs are leading to miniaturization and improved performance. With fast processors and excellent capabilities, the user can utilize these PCs for a wide range of tasks. These PCs are increasingly being used as portable workstations for businesses or as gaming rigs for immersive gaming experiences. Their advanced processors deliver stunning graphics and unparalleled connectivity, providing an immersive display and fast wired & wireless connections.

For instance, in June 2023, Giga Computing, a subsidiary of GIGABYTE and an industry leader in high-performance servers, workstations, and mini-PCs, announced an ultra-compact, mainstream mini-PC for the GIGABYTE BRIXs lineup that adopts AMD Ryzen 7030 series processors. With AMD Zen3 architecture and TSMC 7nm process, AMD advanced its high-performance, efficient mobile processors for the mobile market to multitask and stay entertained. Even while adopting a compact size, all new mainstream BRIXs still deliver powerful computing that fits perfectly in any IoT deployment, whether for office use, education use, home use, digital signage, medical care, or KIOSK.

Limited upgradeability is a significant consideration when it comes to mini-PCs. While they offer compact sizes and high performance, their small form factor often comes with constraints on their ability to be upgraded or expanded over time. Several mini-PCs feature customized form factors and proprietary designs unlike those found in traditional desktop computers. This makes it challenging to find compatible upgrade components, such as RAM modules or storage drives, which fit within the limited space and interface specifications of the mini-PC.

Mini PCs Market Trends

The rising adoption of fast processors enables users to multitask efficiently, ensuring multiple applications can run simultaneously without experiencing slowdowns or performance bottlenecks in the mini PCs. This is particularly important for productivity-focused tasks such as office work, web browsing, and content creation. For instance, in February 2024, Intel announced the NUC 13 Extreme Beast Canyon Mini PC, with 13th Gen Core processors and dedicated graphics, suitable for demanding tasks such as gaming and content creation.

With the shift toward smart home automation, consumers are focusing on mini-PCs with IoT capabilities, which enable advanced functionalities, allowing users to create custom schedules, triggers, and routines for their smart devices. There is a demand for these PCs to set up automated routines to adjust the lighting, temperature, and security settings based on user preferences or specific events.

For instance, in September 2023, Dusun IoT released a highly versatile smart home mini-PC, DSGW-290 multi-protocol smart home controller, featuring exceptional multimedia processing capabilities suitable for both home & office media centers and entertainment purposes. This mini-PC offers a comprehensive selection of wireless protocol options, such as Zigbee 3.0, Z-Wave, BLE, and Sub-GHz, making it suitable for use as a smart home hub.
