              From tomorrow Aldi Nord sells a "performance PC system" with AMD Ryzen 5 1600, Radeon RX 560 and 128 GB SSD for 600 euros: bargain or not?
            
            If we can buy a Medion Akoya P56000 tomorrow at Aldi in Hanover, we publish our test results here as an update in the course of Thursday. Medion's "Performance PC System" includes the six-core Ryzen 5 1600 AMD processor and an AMD Radeon RX 560 graphics card. Windows 10 Home is installed on a 128 GB M.2 SATA SSD; In addition, there is a 1 TB magnetic hard disk in the housing. The main memory is 8 GB in the form of a single DDR4 DIMM.
Even though the Aldi PC has passed its heyday and is no longer causing queues in front of Aldi markets, some of the Medion computers offered nationwide in Germany and Austria are still important for the local market. The current Akoya P56000 is especially important for AMD – it should prove that it can record the Ryzen with Intel's Core i. The Aldi offers in November of the previous years 2016, 2015 and 2014 were equipped with Intel processors.
Paper Form Aldi-Süd sold the Medion Akoya P56000 (MD 34030) two weeks ago; on the 30th of November he comes to Aldi-Nord and to Hofer in Austria. Already before our test is clear: For 599 Euro Aldi and Medion lace a package with barely beatable price-performance ratio. The Ryzen 5 1600 alone costs 200 euros, a comparable graphics card 100 euros, 8 GB of RAM 60 euros. If you add a motherboard, SSD, hard drive, housing, power supply, DVD burner, WLAN adapter, SD card reader, hard disk drive rack, USB keyboard, USB mouse, Windows 10 license and a three-year warranty, the hardly be beaten by Aldi.
If the Medion Akoya P56000 is not too loud and actually delivers the performance it promises on paper, it is an excellent offer. According to the Medion data sheet "in accordance with EU Regulation 617/2013", the power supply delivers at least 80 percent efficiency from 10 percent of its nominal power; When idle, the P56000 should record 27.2 watts of power and its sound pressure level should be below 26 dBA.

Drawbacks Although AMD has probably helped with a discount to make the prestigious Aldi offer possible, this price will need to be cut back. The meet especially the currently expensive memory chips, and in three aspects: The graphics card has only 2 GB of GDDR5 SDRAM, the SSD is a bit limited with 128 GB and on the motherboard is only a single memory module.
The most painful incision is the scarce graphic memory: this forces in some games to cutbacks. He who does not play will be able to live well with it; Limitations of the cards with 2 GB of RAM in terms of HDR videos – Nvidia supposedly works with Netflix only with GeForce 1000 with at least 3 GB of RAM – are so far unknown to AMD. However, AMD lags behind with the HDR-capable drivers.
In the face of the high DRAM prices, one can not expect more than 8 GB of RAM for a 600-euro PC. The capacity is sufficient for many applications. However, in some applications the six cores of the Ryzen 5 1600 certainly benefit from high RAM transfer rates, which would double a second module. The motherboard in the Medion P56000 has two DIMM slots, the second is free for upgrade. Maximum are two 16-gigabyte bars possible, so up to 32 GB of memory.
For the SSD is similar to the RAM: More than 128 GB are currently barely feasible at 600 € device price. The SSD could be exchanged, but you would then copy the operating system – a considerable effort.
Retrofitting unattractive Those who buy the Medion P56000 and upgrade or retrofit immediately leave the bargain zone quickly. Of course, the warranty is only valid for the original delivery.
If you do not like the Medion P56000, you'd better look elsewhere for the optional equipment that suits your own applications. If it should necessarily be from Aldi: On 4 December comes with the Medion Erazer X67015 (MD 34050) a much more equipped gaming PC, which, however, costs more than twice.
Upgrading is easy It is easy to retrofit another SATA hard disk or an SSD: There is a quick-change frame for 3.5 or 2.5 inch storage media. But you should not use a loud hard drive.
