Cooler Master has introduced the Mini-X mini PC, powered by Intel's Core Ultra series processors and up to 64 GB of DDR5-5600 memory. Although the mini PC packs a vapor chamber cooler, it lacks support for internal discrete GPUs. OCuLink is also absent from the otherwise healthy list of ports, making it rely solely on the Arc iGPU for graphics performance.

Interest in mini PCs has soared in recent years, with a slew of companies previously unseen in the market eager to capitalize on the trend. Now, Cooler Master has jumped on the bandwagon by unveiling its Mini-X mini PC, powered by Intel's Core Ultra chips.

As reported by VideoCardz, the Mini-X packs either the 14-core Intel Core Ultra 5 125H or the 16-core Core Ultra 7 155H, paired with up to 64 GB of DDR5-5600 memory. Despite featuring a vapor chamber cooler, the highest-end Core Ultra 9 185H SKU is seemingly missing from the spec sheet. There is also no support for any sort of internal discrete GPU, so users will have to settle for the performance offered by the 8-core Arc iGPU (7-core for the 125H variant), which performs at the level of an RTX 2050 Mobile, according to our performance ratings.

As for connectivity, the Mini-X includes four USB 3.2 Gen 2 (Type-A) ports, a 10G USB-C port, 2.5G ethernet, HDMI 2.0 and 2.1 ports, along with a fingerprint reader for biometric authentication. Unlike the Minisforum UM780 XTX (curr. $719 on Amazon), the Mini-X appears to lack support for OCuLink, which would've enabled the use of external GPUs, providing a much-needed boost in GPU performance. Wireless connectivity options include WiFi 6 and Bluetooth.

Although there is no word on the Mini-X's pricing or availability at the moment, we will, however, be sure to post any updates as soon as they become available.
