Beelink-U59 dual HDMI, GbE, 4x USB

The mini PC ships with Windows 10 Pro and supports Ubuntu Linux. Accessories include 20cm and 1m HDMI cables, the power adapter, and a wall-mount bracket.

There’s no information about the USB-C port function (e.g. DisplayPort Alt Mode), we don’t know if there’s a TPM 2.0 security chip for Windows 11 compatibility, and cooling is achieved with a thermal board and a “quiet big fan” for “efficient heat dissipation”.

Jasper Lake mini pc cooling design

Beelink explains the design is similar to the GK55 mini PC powered by Celeron J4125 Gemini Lake processor, but with only one Ethernet port instead of two, and U59 comes with the exact same accessories. It looks like the long promised Jasper Lake devices are here, after various delays including the Newsmay AC8 that was supposed to start mass-production in mid-May 2021, and the Chuwi Hi10 Go tablet that has shipped since August. We’ll soon find out how it performs as Ian should get a sample for his usual review with Windows and Ubuntu.

It would be interesting to see Intel phase out quad-core Atom-only chips in favor of 1 big core + 4 small cores, like Lakefield and Alder Lake ultra mobile. However, I believe the 1+4 Alder Lake chips are cut down from 2+8 dies and heading to low TDP premium devices, so they might not be suitable as a cheap replacement for Jasper Lake.

At some point, heterogeneous should be the answer, delivering a big single-thread performance boost from 1 big core without increasing the die size much.

Wouldn’t that be more relevant for mobile solutions?

Tell that to Intel, which is not only putting 8 small cores in Alder Lake desktop CPUs, but will double that to 16 small cores for Raptor Lake desktop CPUs. And maybe double it again after that while keeping the number of big cores the same.

Also, this mini PC has Jasper Lake Atom in it. I’m saying give these kinds of boxes 1 big core in addition to the 4 small ones they already have.

I only need 1 HDMI. An extra USB on the back would be much more useful. I have keyboard, mouse and camera for video conferencing.

The main use for 2 HDMIs is what — maybe gaming? This is clearly not a gaming box.

2 displays can be useful for web browsing and productive work. Have video playing on one while you’re focusing on the other, or a spreadsheet on one and something else on the other.

Raspberry Pi 4’s BCM2711 is a considerably worse choice for gaming than a Celeron N5095 box and it has two HDMI outputs.

A lot of people *need* a video camera for remote work. Some people may use an extra monitor for web browsing but how many really *need* it?

It’s all about priorities I suppose.

If I was a hardware vendor, I would look at offering 2 different models so customers can choose the one that fits best. If Beelink don’t do it, someone else will.

Did you ever consider maybe your use case is atypical?

The computer I’m typing on currently has 2 external displays connected, i.e. 3 screens including the laptop’s internal display. For productivity, not gaming.

Multi-head extended desktops really aren’t that uncommon.

When was the last time you walked into an office and saw desks with single monitors?

If , 4x USB 3.0 ports + 1x USB-C port, not enough for you, buy a USB hub.

this is a standard amount of slot in in most mini PC manufacturer, and its enough for most people.
alot people need camera, but alot more need dual display for productivity.

If I was a hardware vendor, I would look at offering what most people need. more sku means more cost.

I wouldn’t want to work without a second screen anymore.

Outlook/teams on one rest on other

Or work on one and reference docs on other

Saves a lot of printing and task switching

Probably for work, I use 2 monitors for work and can’t imagine a PC with just one video output unless I was just connecting it to a TV, and PC meant to run as a PC should have at least 2 monitors for productivity nowadays.

Not bad but I would have liked to have seen NVME on the M.2

It seems only to be a small jump on the J4125.

I hope that Jasper lake will fully support HDR.

Brand new PC but the CPU N5095 seems not to be on the Windows 11 compatibility list, so I fear it’s very soon only electronic scrap 🙁

Electronic scrap? Run Linux on it instead of spyware.

Couldn’t agree more. Like not working with Windows would be an issue lol. This joke is common nowadays, and gets even worse when people mention Windows 11.

Linux & Celeron are a perfect match.
Running windows 10 are a pain only Celeron machosist(that know linux) would choose.

I’m still maintaining a N3150 desktop at work(admin pc) that run great on Xubuntu for 8 years now.
I just recently tried running windows 10 21H1 on it for demo comparison purposes, it was horrible. idle pc usage ~40% (after all updates installed), without ssd, running on hdd disk usage often @100% (win 10 indexing & superfetch).

Pure torture, even juts for browsing on ssd.

Is there « wake up on rtc alarm » on this one ? Because I have buy some beelink recently and this option was missing in the bios : very annoying for professional use !

If you are looking <wake up on rtc alarm> alternative, you can use scripted automated WOL. I prefer this since its more flexible.
i use it to do midnight upgrades every other days.

For retail store rtc alarm is more reliable
