Game lovers! May I have your attention, please. What is a good configuration of a gaming PC which is also maybe at least 2 years future-proof? Asrock Desk Mini ticks the boxes of gaming PC, compact design, style and of course performance.

Under the hood of Asrock Desk Mini, it has got all latest hardware by Intel as well as Nvidia. Now you may think that since it has got a compact design it may be equipped with 7th gen Intel Processor and GTX 1050. Well both of them are false. Under the hood, it is equipped with i7-8700 processor with a GTX 1060 of 6GB GDDR5 memory. Yes, the processor is not unlocked (doesn’t have a K as the suffix) but it still delivers best possible performance. It is just awesome as you can think. We will discuss its specs later.

Coming on to the form factor and build, it is nicely built with a black brushed aluminum exterior and a very small size. The volume of the case is only 2.7 liters which just very small. Its just great performance coming in small size.
