micro-STX

Small form-factor machines have emerged as a very significant chunk of the PC market. Building on the success of the UCFF NUCs, Intel introduced the mini-STX platform in 2015. We have seen multiple mSTX PCs from vendors such as ASRock (DeskMini 110), ECS (LIVA One), and MSI (Cubi 2 Plus). ASRock took things a bit further by creating the micro-STX form factor that could accommodate a discrete GPU (MXM card). The DeskMini Z270 was introduced last year, and the Z370 version with support for Coffee Lake CPUs was launched a few months ago. Today's review takes a look at the DeskMini Z370 GTX1060 version.
