The upcoming mini PCs will support up to a Ryzen 9 5900X desktop-grade CPU coupled to a discrete GPU. MinisForum mentions that the power consumption can range between 120 W and 1000 W, so it also offers support for ATX SFX power supplies. For increased efficiency, the processors are cooled with liquid metal and the included power adapter features gallium nitride technology.

MinisForum was among the first OEMs to release mini PCs equipped with a Ryzen 9 5900HX processor earlier this year, and the company now intends to up the ante with more powerful systems that can accommodate desktop-grade Ryzen 5000X CPUs coupled with discrete GPUs.

This new mini PC does not have a model name as of yet, but MinisForum mentions that it will include an AMD B550 motherboard, which includes support for desktop-grade Ryzen APUs with integrated Vega graphics like the Ryzen 5 5600G and Ryzen 7 5700G, plus full-fledged CPUs like the Ryzen 5 5600X and Ryzen 9 5900X. Since the latter models do not come with integrated graphics, MinisForum offers dGPU options, although it does not specify the exact models.

Looking at the case that is still quite compact at 16.65 cm (6.5 inches) x 15.8 cm (6.2 inches) x 6.7 cm (2.6 inches), MinisForum could include laptop-grade dGPUs with TGPs of up to 160 W. However, the company does specify that the systems could consume between 120 W and 1000 W, so full-size desktop GPUs might still be on the cards. Additionally, MinisForum mentions that the new mini PC can support ATX(SFX) 12V PSUs, yet it is not immediately clear how the case dimensions could allow for this feature. There may be a larger case that could fit an SFX PSU along with desktop GPUs.

Other outstanding features for the new mini PC include support for PCIe 4.0 SSDs, a liquid metal cooling solution for the processor, plus a 120 W gallium nitride adapter. MinisForum will soon release more spec details as well as pricing and availability info.

MinisForum’s New Mini PC with Dedicated Graphics Card

Mini PC manufacturer MinisForum recently announced that they will launch a new mini PC that is based on AMD B550 chipset soon. According to MinisForum, this mini PC will support the latest Ryzen 5000 series APU including 5600G and 5700G and Ryzen CPU like 5600X and 5900X. Since 5600X and 5900X don’t support graphics output, this mini PC will be equipped with a dedicated graphics card. But MinisForum hasn’t release much information about how they put a dedicated graphics card on this mini PC yet.

What is clear is that this mini PC will use gallium nitride adapter for charging. The package will include a 120w gallium nitride adapter. In addition, the mini PC will also support ATX(SFX) power supply 12V only. With AMD B550 chipset, this mini PC will support PCIe 4.0 SSD. This mini PC will also use liquid metal for cooling, just like their previous products HX90 and HM90. The whole system will consume roughly from 120W to 1000W.
