MINISFORUM Neptune HX90G: New details outlined for upcoming supercharged mini-PC
MINISFORUM has revealed more details about the Neptune HX90G, a mini-PC that it presented earlier this month. To be available with a Ryzen 9 5900HX, a Ryzen 9 6900HX and undisclosed Intel Alder Lake processors, the Neptune HX90G will be one of the most powerful mini-PCs when it arrives. As far as we are aware, the Neptune HX90G will only ship with the Radeon RX 6650M, a Navi 23-based graphics card with 8 GB of VRAM and 28 Compute Units. For reference, MINISFORUM has built the Neptune HX90G around a 2.8-litre chassis, which it will ship with a 260 W power supply.
While the company had already shown what the Neptune HX90G looks like from the outside, its new promotional video highlights the machine's internal layout. As the video below shows, MINISFORUM has included a substantial heatsink with three heatpipes cooling the CPU and another four to draw heat away from the GPU. Additionally, the CPU and GPU have dedicated fans, although they appear to sit adjacent to each component rather than directly above them.
Allegedly, the sizeable cooling solution will be capable of dissipating heat under 100% without any performance loss, in part thanks to the use of liquid metal. Incidentally, MINISFORUM will be applying liquid metal on the CPU and GPU, an unusual move for an entry-level GPU like the Radeon RX 6650M. Unfortunately, MINISFORUM remains quiet about when it will start selling the Neptune HX90G, let alone what Alder Lake processors will be available.
