News Sim Tools


And … the Compact 🙂

It’s again about Hardware. Mini factor.
I’m here to say what I bought. Just hands-on experience, which was for me, for almost a year, a mistery.
Now I can say: mostly happy with HP Elitedesk G2 Mini.
Yes a bit old: i5 6500, 8Gb Ram, 256 Gb SSD.
And of course Intel 530 HD videocard
(by the way – almost like GT 730), on which most hope were.
All this compact did the thing!

There are also to mention: Intel NUC (the very first in history)
Dell Optiplex micro, Lenovo ThinkCentre, Fujitsu Esprimo.
My choice was between HP and Dell. Just HP did the trick.
There was worry about overheat, but no, nothing similar to that or I’m just playing good old Half-Life 2 on max settings, but on 1024px wide screen. 🙂

Dell Optiplex
Lenovo ThinkCentre
Fujisu Esprimo

Speed, framerate in Racing sims? Quite nice, with darken videocard taste, good joy, works abs well in RaceRoom multiplayer (22 players in one track).
Also all tidy in Grid, GTR 2, will try with F1 2018.
That’s for future, the saddest part of course, small hard drive.

It’s SSD, but it’s quite small, for me 256 Gb is minimum.
But for now it’s all ok, with O at start.
So, I recomment those PCs, they 1. Small – handy in a way that 1.3kg with size of 17cm is a good chooice to pack and grab into almost any trip and plug it into other country (for cases of course need adapter to other plug systems).
2. Powerful – I would say a Good value / Small Factor.

In overall, good piece of nice PC. Recommend for those, who enjoy well designed sims/games with modest video settings and likes to travel.
Thank you for your time,
Enjoy the life!
