Akasa Turing A50: A passive enclosure for the ASUS PN50, an AMD Ryzen-powered mini-PC
Akasa is well known for its custom cases, especially those for the Raspberry Pi. With the Turing A50, the company has created a passively-cooled case for the ASUS PN50, a mini-PC that is configurable with up to an AMD Ryzen 7 4800U APU. The Turing A50 may well be compatible with the PN51 too, which a Scandinavian retailer recently leaked.
The Turing A50 measures 113.5 x 95 x 279.9 mm, which is a fair bit larger than the PN50 (115 x 115 x 49 mm), but the former will be small enough for most home offices. Essentially, the Turing A50 is a huge heatsink through which it can expel waste heat. Akasa has included an aluminium core and thermal pads that connect to the aluminium body, which should yield excellent cooling performance despite the absence of any fans.
Access to all the PN50's ports is provided too, as is space for including a 2.5-inch SATA drive. According to Akasa, the Turing A50 will be available to order within a few days for £125.00 in the UK and €130.00 in Europe. The Turing A50 will be orderable in the US and other markets, too.
