ASRock DeskMini A300 (Ryzen 5 2400G) Review

Packaging & Contents »

Introduction


ASRock was established in 2002 with the sole focus on motherboards. From their humble beginnings, they have stuck with the 3C design concept of "Creativity, Consideration, Cost-effectiveness", which has allowed them to grow into an industry juggernaut. Since then, they have expanded their product range to include PC systems, motherboards, graphics cards, networking components, and more. With a solid portfolio of products and a reputation for exceptional motherboards that keep PC enthusiasts coming back for more, it is no wonder ASRock is now well-known worldwide as a premier PC-component manufacturer.


In today's review, I look the ASRock DeskMini A300 barebones system, which has been outfitted with a Ryzen 5 2400G, 16 GB of DDR4, and a 240 GB M.2 SSD. While it does not have enough space for a graphics card, the Ryzen-based APU means integrated graphics are adequate for the majority of today's tasks. Even lightweight gaming is entirely possible as long as expectations are kept in check.
