VOYO Mini PC: Design & first impression
Instead of a gray or black box, the VOYO mini PC is optically real. It is available in 5 poppy colors (blue, yellow, red, white, green) and is made of quite stable plastic. For better ventilation, several holes are present on the underside by the waste heat.
The VOYO Windows PC is started with a small switch on the front side. A blue light illuminates. The boot time is really fast, after hardly 15 seconds the PC is high. Of the integrated 64GB memory, the user is still scarce 48.5 GB available for free. The memory can be expanded with normal micro SD cards with up to 128GB or any USB hard disks or USB sticks.
The installed Windows 8.1 version (Bing) is already activated and updateable. Whether an update for Windows 10 is provided, can not be said yet.
VOYO Mini PC: Power & Graphics
The built-in Intel Baytrail Atom Z3735F is a very economical SoC with four cores. It clocks up to 1.83 GHz and thus offers a very good performance with good energy efficiency.
Thanks to the 4 integrated cores, the performance of the VOYO Mini PC with Intel Z3735F significantly exceeds the performance of previous Intel Atom models.
The integrated Intel HD Graphics supports Direct X11. With a maximum of 646 MHz clock rate and 4 EUs, the graphics performance is rather modest. If you really want to play, you will not be happy with the VOYO Mini PC.
In the current 3DMark, the compact Mini PC reaches 6667 points, in the PCMark 8 Home, it is quite good 978 points. It is still better with 1429 points still in the PCMark 8 WorkConventional.
The integrated memory reaches a reading speed of nearly 83 MB / s and a write speed of 37 MB / s. These are good values for pure office applications.
The power consumption is very low, in the switched-off state only 1W was measurable. In standby and idle, it is 3W, with the full load only 10W.
Unfortunately, the compact Windows PC has problems with cooling under full load. If the temperature under normal load is completely ok after 10 minutes with a tight 40 ° C, the temperature rises quite quickly to 85°C at full load (for example with the game Asphalt 8). The integrated processor then switches to a mode with only 500Mhz power, which naturally leads to strong Framerate intrusions.
Similar temperatures are also achieved with 4K Playback or 1080p Playback after continuous operation.
Due to its very compact size, the VOYO Mini PC is ideally suited as a home theater PC in conjunction with KODI.
We tested the following video formats for you.
VOYO Mini PC: Network & Wifi
The quality of the signal at a distance of about 6m from the router is good. A file with 100MB is transmitted at about 23.5 Mbps. This is a good value in the midfield. Full-HD streaming to KODI is thus no problem.
VOYO Mini PC: Conclusion
The VOYO Mini PC is a really good office or HTPC, which can be equipped with KODI. The performance is very good for the compact design and is sufficient for standard applications.
A nice accessory is an integrated battery with 1000mAh, which maintains the operation for approx. 3 hours without external power supply.
