MINISFORUM UM580: AMD Ryzen 7 5800H-powered mini-PC presented for US$439
MINISFORUM has introduced the UM580, a more powerful version of the UM560. While the UM560 features a Ryzen 5 5625U APU, MINISFORUM includes the Ryzen 7 5800H with the UM580. Although the Ryzen 5 5625U is a newer APU, the Ryzen 7 5800H is the more powerful of the two, thanks to its superior core count, higher TDP and faster iGPU. Still, the Ryzen 7 5800H should be eclipsed by its successor, the Ryzen 7 6800H.
According to MINISFORUM, the UM580 contains an improved heatsink over the one in the UM560 to keep its 45 W APU in check. By contrast, the Ryzen 5 5625U only has to keep a 25 W APU under control. Separately, the UM580 measures 128 x 126.6 x 46.5 mm, which is tall enough to include a 2.5-inch drive. For reference, MINISFORUM populates the device's M.2 2280 slot if you opt for a model with pre-installed storage. Additionally, the MINISFORUM UM580 is compatible with up to 64 GB of dual-channel DDR4 RAM. Moreover, the mini-PC contains the following ports:
- 1x 3.5 mm combined headphone/microphone jack
- 1x DMIC
- 2x HDMI
- 1x RJ45 (2.5 Gbps)
- 2x USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A
- 2x USB 2.0 Type-A
- 3x USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C
- 1x Clear CMOS
Currently, the MINISFORUM UM580 starts at US$439 as a barebones system. Alternatively, a configured machine starts at US$499 with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage. Moreover, the UM580 rises to US$519 with 16 GB of RAM, or US$549 with 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage. Finally, there is a 32 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage option that sells for US$599.
