Meet Beelink Ser5 Pro Mini PC
Would you like to get a great compact gaming mini-PC, which, due to its size, will significantly save space on the desktop, and it also has very good features? Beelink took care of this request by launching a new model called Ser5 Pro Mini PC. The Beelink SER5 Pro 5800H mini PC comes in a black cardboard box that features red and white lettering. Inside we find the mini PC itself along with power supply and power cable, as well as a manual, a wall mount and an HDMI cable to connect to the monitor, which turns out to be quite manageable with a length of one meter.
Like other members of the Beelink SER family, the SER5 Pro is a gorgeous piece of tech. Its aluminum chassis is well-vented and offers lots of connectivity options. This mini PC weighs only 1 pound, but it still feels surprising hefty in the hands as all the weight is concentrated in a small area. The perforated top panel, a long with many vents on the other sides, allows efficient airflow to keep the mini PC cool and stable. The Beelink and AMD logos, as well as a few stickers here give the SER5 Pro a very professional look.
On the front panel of the SER5, you will find the following: a power button with status LED, a 3.5mm audio jack with mic support, a Clear CMOS pinhole, a USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-C port, two USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-A ports. The rear side plays host to two HMDI 2.0 ports, a DisplayPort, a USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A port, a USB 2.0 Type-A port, a Gigabit Ethernet jack, and a DC-in port. The two HDMI 2.0 ports and the Type-C port all support 4k@60Hz video output, so you can connect the SER5 Pro to three displays at the same time. The Type-C port also supports Power Delivery 3.0.
The hardware expansion in the SER5 Pro consists of an M.2 Type-2280 slot for PCle3.0*4 NVMe SSDs, a traditional 2.5-inch drive bay, and two laptop-style SO-DIMM slots for the RAM. The wireless card is also accessible under the pre-installed NVMe SSD. To access the rest of the PC, you will have to remove more screws, but there’s really no need for that since nothing else is replaceable or upgradable. The SER5 Pro also supports WiFi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2, making it perfect for streaming games and VR content wirelessly.
The Beelink Ser5 Pro Beast Mini PC lives up to its name. It’s truly a beast of a machine – at least in terms of power. The AMD Ryzen 7 5800H processor is as fast as they come, and the integrated graphics aren pretty good. The SSD drive offers blazing fast read and write speeds, and you get an absurd amount of RAM. In terms of size, it’s small enough to place just about anywhere, and the VESA mount makes positioning a breeze.

Wi-Fi 6 is the most recent iteration of the Wi-Fi network protocol and is a substantial upgrade over its predecessor. Wi-Fi 6 can be faster due to technologies like traffic prioritization, OFDMA, and beamforming. This new protocol is also more secure and uses new encryption technologies such as SAE. Wi-Fi 6 is a substantial upgrade over previous generations, though the differences may not seem immediately obvious to the average user. These changes might not dramatically change the way we use wireless routers or wireless networking but instead consist of many incremental improvements that stack up to be a substantial upgrade. The first big change is that Wi-Fi 6 allows for potentially faster connection speeds. Overlapping Basic Service Sets (OBSS) is another Wi-Fi 6 feature that can help to improve network congestion. With older versions of Wi-Fi, devices trying to connect to a network used a “listen before talk” process, which meant they had to “listen” for any noise on a channel before transmitting. Another forward-facing development incorporated into Wi-Fi 6, Target Wake Time (TWT), has the ability to potentially increase battery life on some devices. Wi-Fi 6 has a dramatic impact on the way we interact with our wireless devices. Between the faster speeds, better traffic prioritization, and added security, Wi-Fi 6 is a significant step forward in wireless network technology.Whether you’re gaming, working, or just streaming video, upgrading to Wi-Fi 6 is worth considering. The WiFi speed in our test was pretty good, up to 430 Mbps.
Bluetooth 5 provides an increased transfer rate of 50 Mb/s. It also extended the connection range up to 240m. What’s more, the 5.2 version also comes with Low Complexity Communication Codec (LC3). This new codec transfers audio data at lower bitrates without sacrificing audio quality. Other notable improvements include: less power consumption, increased message capacity, backward compatibility with Bluetooth 4 versions, dual audio feature that allows you to connect to two different devices at the same time & addition of Slot Availability Mask (SAM), which further lessens interference with LTE.
HDMI 2.0 was developed by the HDMI Forum to provide new functionality for this widely adopted technology. Released in September 2013, the specification includes support of increased bandwidth up to 18 Gbps, resolutions up to 4K @ 60 Hz, simultaneous delivery of two video streams and up to four audio streams, 32 channels of audio, as well as other key enhancements. It is backward compatible to earlier specification versions, simplifying integration within existing AV systems. HDMI 2.0 is designed to enhance the video and audio experience for the audience. HDMI 2.0 includes support of High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection – HDCP, an encryption protocol for copy-protected video content. HDMI 2.0 includes support of BT.2020 colorimetry with 10-bit color depth or higher. HDMI 2.0 provides additional Consumer Electronics Control – CEC extensions to enable control of AV devices through a single control point.
Beelink Ser5 Pro Mini PC BIOS
The American Megatrends BIOS of Beelink Ser5 Pro Mini PC is very rich in features and options, with many items enabled. There are 6 tabs in settings, with douzins of options each: Main, Advanced, Chipset, Security, Boot, Save & Exit.
I have made a BIOS back-up, you can download it from here. I advise everyone to make a copy of a working BIOS, if possible, before doing BIOS experiments. To do that you can simple use the provided Aptio AfuWin64 software. If you disabled USB in the BIOS, or if you did another mess in device BIOS, only overwriting NVRAM can reset BIOS settings. In this way, there is no need to open the case, to teardown the device to be able to reset the CMOS. All the actions are made from Windows environment, so your Mini PC has to be able to boot into Windows. All the following actions that are you will do next are entirely at your own risk.
