It's Mini-ITX rather than Mini-ATX.

Gemini Lake is also current gen rather than last gen as far as I'm aware.
These integrated systems are great for what they are (don't expect a powerhouse!) and this seems a decent price.

Just remembered I'm actually using one of these right now (the previous gen Apollo Lake one with 16GB RAM) Currently 100+ tabs on Chrome and it's still not chugging

Last - I mean of the available. Definitely, there will be new in the future

Latest would be a better description.

I have a Beelink S2 with the Gemini Lake and I'm struggling to get it to play videos smoothly. It's awful with 4K and struggles with 1080P.

Think I may try a fresh install of windows
A lot of hardware for peanuts!

Wish they’d have squeezed in a proper m2 slot for an SSD though. Much more elegant for a tiny system.

What software are you using? I would try with different software to see if there's any difference, I'm not saying that's definitely the problem, but it's surprising how much of a difference it can make. From my experience (not with this chipset though) is that Kodi, MPC-HC and VLC are the best all-rounders. Plex can be OK, but have also seen it struggle even with a dedicated GPU and a 16 thread CPU, so mileage can vary with that greatly.

I've tried kodi VLC and MPC. All very stuttery. Even a 720p video won't play smoothly. I think a full wipe and try again is in order.
anyone know what size psu I would need for this if i am to use it as a nas with freeNas 2x 4TB drives and 16gb ram?

Yes, I think that's the way to go maybe. Were you playing from local storage or through the network? if local then I would also check the source drive, it should be able to playback much better than that I would think. Also check that you're syncing display to source framerate for better visuals IMO, I hate watching 24Hz video on a 60Hz display personally, or the other way around, the panning shots always look terrible to me. Sorry if you've already checked these things, just want to try and cover the bases for troubleshooting.

It's off a USB 3 hard drive connected to the USB 3 port. It worked fine on my old mini pc that died.

Don't know then mate, could figure it out if in front of me. One thing you could try is loading on a linux build and see if that gives you problems with playback. If it doesn't then it'd be either windows itself or drivers is my guess... some USB controllers can be a pain, especially older ones.
