Using a desktop PC in the form of a monoblock is the dream of any rational user. After all, its main advantage is to minimize the space occupied on the desktop and reduce the various cables that usually go from the system unit to the monitor and peripheral equipment. But manufacturers in most models use low-power equipment, focusing such products only on office tasks.
The ThinkView T-P3302C model is able to change the attitude towards monoblocks and prove that the future of the gaming industry is possible behind such devices. To begin with, we will briefly talk about the filling and configuration of this device.

Specifications:

  • Processor: AMD Ryzen R5-3600, 6 cores;
  • Video card: GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER, 8 GB;
  • RAM: CORSAIR 16GB RAM, DDR4, 3200 GHz;
  • Solid State Drive: SSD SAMSUNG 500 GB, M.2;
  • Display: 31.5″ curved screen, Full HD, Samsung SVA matrix;
  • Connectors: 2x USB 2.0 on the side, 4x USB 3.0 on the rear panel, LAN (RJ-45) Gigabit, 3 audio jacks.

As you can see from the configuration, the ThinkView T-P3302C has a powerful 6-core low power processor and a very powerful gaming PC set, which highlights the modern GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER graphics card, fast RAM and high-speed SSD.

The monoblock comes with a regular keyboard, a Logitech-branded mouse and a Sennheiser headset, which are suitable for office tasks, but for games it is better to choose something more comfortable. For example, the keyboard has a small left SHIFT, and there are no additional keys for controlling multimedia, volume and display brightness at all.

In addition, an external Wi-Fi antenna is supplied with the motherboard, which, as it turned out during the tests, can be very useful. The company’s website has a configurator of the proposed models, where the user can order a more powerful filling, or vice versa — weaker, but the total amount will be less. This will allow you to choose the optimal one-piece for work and games.

Case design and materials


Monoblock ThinkView T-P3302C has a fairly large size, and the curved display gives the appearance of a certain futuristic. I liked that in thickness it barely exceeds the size of old LCD TVs — this is admired by the design developers. The plastic of the back cover is matte, of high quality and very durable. The frame around the display is also white, but glossy.


Along the perimeter, to give the case elegance, there is a gold-colored edging. The stand, made of aluminum, looks solid and the monoblock is stable on it, although its weight is about 15 kg. Adjustment is carried out only by the angle of inclination in a limited range.

It is worth noting that for this screen size, you will need a lot of free space on the table, at least so that it can be moved away from you by about 700 mm. This will provide a better perception of the image as a whole, in addition, the Full HD pixels of the matrix will not be so noticeable.

Connectors and controls


Like most modern monitors, the ThinkView monoblock has a USB hub of two 2.0 ports located on the left side and four USB 3.0 ports on the back of the motherboard. The first two have good accessibility and are convenient to use for quickly connecting flash drives and smartphones. However, if you need high-speed ports, you will have to work hard to find the right connector — after all, it will be hard to deploy such a colossus weighing almost a pood. Therefore, in order not to perform this procedure every time to connect a high-speed external drive, you will have to get a USB 3.0 extension cable, the cost of which does not exceed . Interestingly, on the motherboard connector panel there is also a pair with support for the USB 3.1 standard, highlighted in red.


Connecting other peripherals — mice, keyboards, headphones and a printer is best done by placing the monoblock with the screen down. During this operation, you should be careful, because. a metal stand that, although it looks elegant, has sharp corners that can scratch the table.
By the way, having plugged all the necessary devices into the connectors, it is better to immediately connect an external Wi-Fi antenna — it is connected via two screw-on plugs. As practical tests have shown, the built-in Wi-Fi module has a very weak antenna and almost does not receive a signal if your router is in the next room.


Another important detail is the Display Port connector, into which you need to immediately plug the plug that goes from the motherboard to the video card. Otherwise, there will be no image on the screen. This feature is associated with the use of a discrete graphics card in the configuration.

The display is configured using a series of buttons located on the right side of the lower edge of the monitor. The menu has a correction of brightness, contrast and other typical parameters inherent in monitors. The interface supports different languages, including English, but Russian is not on this list.

Display quality is top notch


As we noted above, this model uses a curved display with a classic aspect ratio of 16:9. It uses a Full HD Samsung SVA matrix, which provides wide viewing angles, a fairly high brightness of 250 cd / m2 and a contrast ratio of 3000:1. As practical tests have shown, the level of 45% of both parameters is enough to comfortably work with graphics and view video content. The viewing angles of the screen will be 170 ° and when viewed from the side, the picture almost does not fade.

The matrix does not support HDR technology, but its color gamut is 125% sRGB, which allows it to be used for professional purposes. The display of color tones can be called ideal. Quantum Dot backlighting is used here, providing deeper blacks, and its uniformity is admirable. On such a display it is pleasant to work, surf the Internet, view photos and videos and, of course, play. No flickering or discomfort was noticed. And this is understandable, because. the pixel flicker frequency in this matrix is ​​148.5 MHz, and the maximum can reach 180 MHz.


At the same time, the display matrix demonstrated excellent dynamic characteristics with an excellent response time of 3 ms — we did not observe any loops or residual contours here.

Performance in benchmarks and in games


The monoblock can be supplied with both Intel and AMD processors. Our test unit is equipped with an AMD Ryzen R5-3600 processor. This is a very productive solution, suitable for both resource-intensive working graphics programs and modern 3D games. The CPU has 6 cores, its frequency is 3 GHz. In peak single-thread load mode, the frequency of a single core during overclocking can reach 4.2 GHz. According to the manufacturer, the maximum energy consumption of this stone is 65 W, but according to benchmarks in stress tests, the processor spent no more than 45 W, which is extremely economical.

The maximum temperature of the processor is 95 degrees, but stress tests showed a good heat dissipation system that does not allow the core to heat up more than 83°C.

As you know, the overall performance is affected by three more components: video card, RAM and disk system. Our copy of the monoblock is equipped with a GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER graphics system with 8 GB of RAM, GDDR 6. The card has a PCI Express 3.0 interface, while the GPU frequency is 300 MHz, and the RAMDAC frequency is 400 MHz. The maximum bus width of the graphics processor is 256 bit, which indicates the professional orientation of the video card.


This was confirmed both by synthetic tests in benchmarks and by practical tests in modern games. So, 3DMARK Time Spy showed a total result of 8049 points, where the graphics system scored 8367 points, and the CPU test showed 6625 points. At 100% CPU load, the temperature of the CPU and GPU did not exceed 75°C. The device has three large fans that provide effective cooling of the radiator with a small background noise under load.


In games, the monoblock showed absolute power, without hesitation reproducing the maximum picture quality in Full HD resolution. Features of the Metro Exodus engine ensured the highest possible FPS in this game — 61, which did not decrease in any dynamic scenes. And in the updated game Call of Duty Modern Warfare Remastered FPS ranged from 260 to 350, which more than covers all conceivable requests for comfortable gameplay. The video system and monitor produce a photographic image, although for such a large monitor and such a powerful video system one already wants 4K quality.

As for RAM, our configuration uses CORSAIR 16GB RAM, DDR4 (2×8 GB in dual-channel mode). Its AIDA64 Extreme latency scores are 22-21-22-50 CR1, and it handled any kind of workload superbly.

Of course, in the high-speed processing of big data, it was well supported by the SAMSUNG 500 GB SSD. It has an M.2 interface and is connected to the motherboard via a high-speed PCI-E 3.0 x16 bus and is equipped with a powerful and nice heatsink that obviously comes with the motherboard.


In the CristalDiskMark benchmark, he scored record speeds of 3500 MB / s for reading and 3249 for writing data. Similar data was shown by the ATTO Disk Benchmark application. In the ASSD Benchmark test, a slightly different measurement algorithm is used and the values ​​\u200b\u200bin it turned out to be slightly lower — 2930 for reading and 2614 for writing. In it, the disk showed excellent access time — 0.020 ms.

The HD Tune Pro test program allows you to evaluate the real speed of copying files, which for this drive averaged 1732 MB / s.


Sound system

Due to the absence of a separate system unit and the use of a case combined with a monitor, this monoblock is psychologically perceived as a television system, in which, as we are used to, there must be built-in speakers. However, in this model, they, alas, are absent, which at first can be confusing. Of course, headphones are included, but putting them on every time you want to quickly watch an interesting video on the Web is not very convenient. Although, it must be admitted that the built-in sound card produces a very detailed and rich sound with support for Dolby Atmos technology. At least in games and movies with an appropriate 7.1 headset, you will be provided with natural surround sound.

Is it possible to upgrade

The manufacturer has provided convenient access to the system components, where you can install almost any components yourself. This can be, for example, a processor, video card, RAM, for which there are two slots, or simply install an additional drive — a capacious HDD. For the latter, the corresponding cable is included.


In general, the design of a monoblock is the same desktop PC, only with a more convenient (accessible) placement of all components. According to the company, the user can even choose a configuration without components and buy them on their own, and the company’s specialists are ready to help with the selection of all components.

Product Conclusion

The monoblock makes a pleasant impression of a solid all-in-one gaming kit, which successfully combines elegant appearance, a huge panoramic display and a very powerful filling that can cope with any work and gaming loads. However, Full HD resolution may seem small for such a large diagonal. But do not forget that a 4K display costs a lot of money. I liked the matrix with excellent color reproduction — the picture is juicy and contrasting both when working with photos and in games. At the same time, the performance of the system as a whole and separately is at a very high level. It is important that the manufacturer has well thought out the CPU and GPU air cooling system: heated air is blown out from the back of the case, while the noise from the coolers is almost not noticeable in normal mode. Under load, the sound of the fans becomes more noticeable, but does not irritate the ear. Of the minuses, we note the lack of built-in speakers and the inconvenient location of connectors for connecting peripherals. For a quick connection, you will have to buy a USB 3.0 extension cable. The built-in Wi-Fi module, although it supports the 5 GHz band, has poor sensitivity, so connecting an external antenna that comes with the monoblock in a wireless home network is strongly recommended.

The KANIN ThinkView T-P3302C monoblock has already gone on sale at a price of about 1450$ and can be ordered on the company’s website. There is also an option to change the build configuration.
