HP launches EliteDesk 805 G6 compact PCs with desktop-grade AMD Renoir APUs and GTX 1660 Ti dGPU
HP is updating its business compact PC lineup with the new EliteDesk 805 G6 models that now support AMD’s desktop-grade Ryzen Pro 4000 Renoir APUs. These systems are not exactly as small as those palm-sized mini PCs, yet the increase in size is well justified by the CPU power and the addition of discrete GPU options, plus an impressive port selection. The new EliteDesk 805 G6 systems measure 7 x 6.9 x 1.4 inches and weigh around 3.2 lbs, which still allows them to be mounted on the back of larger monitors.
CPU options range between a 35 W Ryzen 3 Pro 4350GE and the top-of-the-line 65 W Ryzen 7 Pro 4750G that come with integrated Vega graphics. Still, the additional space inside the larger case now allows for a discrete Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti GPU. The CPU can be coupled with up to 64 BG of DDR4-3200 RAM via 2x SODIMM slots and there are 2x M.2 2280 slots for SATA or NVMe SSDs plus a 2.5-inch bay for a SATA SSD / HDD. Additionally, there is a smaller M.2 2230 slot for modules supporting Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth connections.
As far as ports are concerned, the non-dGPU versions come with 6x USB-A 3.1, 1x USB-C 3.1, 3x DisplayPort 1.4 connectors, and a GbE jack. HP also offers the “Flex IO” options when getting the dGPU variant. With this option, the back of the system gets 3 more mini DisplayPort connectors plus a mini HDMI video out.
Pricing and availability information should be revealed in the coming weeks.
