HP has introduced the Elitedesk 800 G6 Mini, a mini PC in the so-called USFF (Ultra Small Form Factor). According to the manufacturer, it is the most powerful system with a volume of just over one liter. The Elitedesk 800 G6 Mini measures 177 x 175 x 34 mm and can be used horizontally or vertically.
There is a USB-C and a USB-A socket on the front, both are designed as USB 3.2 Gen2 (10 GBit / s). There is also a USB-A 3.2 Gen1, which can charge devices with 15 watts and an audio jack. At the back there is an RJ-45 for Gigabit Ethernet, two Displayport 1.3 and five USB connections. Two of them can be converted via Flex-I / O module through USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 including power delivery and Displayport alternate mode. The power supply is external – 65 watts, 90 watts or 150 watts.
Inside is a socketed Intel processor, exactly: a 10th Gen model like the ten-core Core i9-10900K (test), probably as a T version with 35 watts. In addition, there is the Q470 chip for vPro and two SO-DIMM slots for up to 64 GB DDR4-2666 memory. The Elitedesk 800 G6 Mini has an M.2-22300 slot for a Bluetooth / WiFi card, whereby HP also equips the system with WiFi6 (802.11ax). Two M.2-2280 slots for up to 4 TB of SSD storage are available for permanent storage, and there is also a 2.5-inch slot for Sata HDDs / SSDs.

The Elitedesk 800 G6 Mini can optionally be equipped with a dedicated Geforce GTX 1660 Ti (test), although we do not know in which form it is installed. A daughter board with a soldered TU116 graphics chip and the associated GDDR6 memory would be conceivable. HP plans to sell the 1-liter system in Germany from September 2020, prices are not yet available.
