Cherry Trail Mini PC’s – Best Affordable Windows Powered Mini PC’s

The most powerful of the bunch, but also cost more, the V3 mini is the successor to the V2, the designs are exactly identical except for some additional interfaces and hardware boost.

The Mini PC bares the fastest X7 Cherry Trail Chipset clocking at 2.4GHz, but this also questions the type of cooling design, since the V2 is passively cooled, and does run hot on load.

Anyway, it comes with 4 GB RAM and a speedy 128 GB SSD Sata3 storage, which is a great addition and considerably faster than the standard eMMC storage on the other Mini Pc’s here on the list. Another main feature is the addition of 2x USB 3.0 Standard ports. And judging from the pictures lack of DC Power Port, the USB type C connector might be the port to use.

Video output readily supports 4K 2160p, and in terms of connectivity, the V3 supports Dual Band WiFi 5GHz. However, it does not have RJ45 LAN Port.

In terms of features, the Voyo V3 Mini is the fastest Mini PC yet, and is loaded with features like the SSD storage, which for me personally is great. However, premium features does cost a bit more and as you can see, it is the priciest of all the Mini PC’s here on the list.

  1. Im interested for Voyo V.3

    Do you think that mini pc would efficiently perform:

    1. more than 5 browser tabs?
    2. code programming using dreamweaver, intel xdk?
    3. Stream from xbox one to voyo?

    1. Hello Niko,

      1. It can handle up to 5 if you are using Microsoft Edge, for some reason Chrome doesn’t perform that well especially with low memory Mini PC’s (2 GB).
      2. Dream weaver will run fine, but performance might not be ideal
      3. Streaming is good up to 1080p, 4K streaming takes a bit of toll on the CPU and Atoms are not really great in terms of heavy tasks.

      Best Regards,
      Vince

  2. hello vincent,

    The latest x7 cherry trail platform doesn`t support SSD, only eMMC, so i think their advertising is not correct

    1. Hello jeroen,

      I have tested the Voyo V2 (baytrail version), it has SSD storage also 64 GB SSD, but it isn’t the main storage. It had 2 GB RAM and 32 GB eMMC storage and an extended 64 GB SSD. I didn’t have a chance to take the V3 for a spin but i think the storage is mostly extended and not like the built in eMMC storage of before. It is probably detachable and attaches to the Sata Connector, unlike the built in storage of the Voyo V2 (eMMC)

      Best Regards,
      Vince

    1. Hello jeroen,

      Basing on my experience of the Voyo V2 (i opened it). The Memory, Chipset, and 32 GB ROM are on one PCB. The 64 GB SSD is either on a SATA (similar connection to a laptop). Anyway, I’m not so sure, maybe they soldered the 128GB SSD on the Voyo V3.

      Best Regards,
      Vince

    1. Maybe, i havent tested it yet, but it is a big possibility. I only opened the V2 because i needed the SSD Card for other uses. Usually eMMC are attached to the PCB coupled with the RAM and OS

      Best Regards,
      Vince
