ASUS ExpertCenter PN53 announced with AMD Ryzen 6000H APUs and DDR5 RAM in mini-PC form factor
ASUS has announced another ExpertCenter machine, days after introducing a modular desktop PC. Not only is the ExpertCenter PN53 another product in the ExpertCenter, but it is also another member of its mini-PC series. While the machine is rather small, it should pack a punch regardless of the configuration chosen.
According to ASUS, the ExpertCenter PN53 comes with the Ryzen 5 6600H, Ryzen 7 6800H or the Ryzen 9 6900HX, all members of AMD's Rembrandt-H series. Hence, all versions of the ExpertCenter PN53 contain Zen 3+ CPU cores, 45 W TDPs and RDNA 2-based iGPUs. For reference, all but the Ryzen 5 6600H feature eight CPU cores and the Radeon 680M; the Ryzen 5 6600H makes do with six cores and the lesser Radeon 660M instead.
Additionally, ASUS equips its new mini-PC with two M.2 2280 slots that support PCIe Gen4 NVMe drives, a 2.5-inch drive bay and two SODIMM slots that can handle 32 GB of DDR5-4800 RAM. Incidentally, all configurations are available with WiFi 6 or WiFi 6E connectivity and feature the following ports:
- 1x 3.5 mm audio jack
- 1x Configurable port (COM/DisplayPort 1.4/HDMI 2.1/VGA)
- 1x Ethernet (2.5 Gbit)
- 2x HDMI 2.1
- 5x USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-A
- 1x USB 4 Type-C (DisplayPort 1.4/USB Power Delivery)
- 1x USB 4 Type-C (DisplayPort 1.4)
For some reason, ASUS has not confirmed pricing details yet. However, the company provided more details about the mini-PC on its website.
