AMD 4800S Desktop Kit leaks with a Zen 2 CPU and support for at least a Radeon RX 6600 GPU
In July, AMD introduced the 4700S Desktop Kit, which MINISFORUM has since released as the CR50 with a Radeon RX 550 GPU. The AMD 4700S first appeared in April though, at which time it was only available in China. Now, VideoCardz has received photos of an AMD 4800S, along with its retail branding.
Unfortunately, it is unclear on what AMD has based the 4800S Desktop Kit. If the company's Ryzen branding is anything to go by, the 4800S contains a higher clocked SoC than the 'Ariel' one in the 4700S. The 4800S does have a Zen 2-based processor, mind you, mirroring the original Desktop Kit.
Additionally, the 4800S will arrive as a microATX board, rather than the Mini-ITX form factor in which AMD offers the 4700S Desktop Kit. One picture suggests that only half the 4800S' PCIe slot is populated too, implying that the Desktop Kit supports PCIe x8 Gen 4.0.
Apparently, the 4800S Desktop Kit will support the Radeon RX 6600, with which it will be bundled. AMD is expected to release the Desktop Kit Q1 2022 with MSI manufacturing the board. Availability and pricing remain unknown, but AMD will include a PowerColor-branded graphics card.
