Minisforum Mercury Series EM780 review: Extremely compact mini-PC with AMD Ryzen 7 7840U, 32 GB of RAM and 1 TB SSD

Small and mighty! The Mercury Series is Minisforum’s line of mini-PCs that are tiny and yet offer compelling performance. The latest model, known as the EM780, comes with an AMD Ryzen 7 7840U and is a solid performer despite its compact design. The mini-PC shines with its 32 GB of RAM and modern USB4 interfaces and is thus almost unrivalled. In this review, we’ll take a closer look at the performance of this pint-size device with the help of many measurements and benchmarks.

Minisforum has given the Mercury Series EM780 a newer SoC as an upgrade over the EM680. The AMD Ryzen 7 7840U similarly boasts eight native cores but is equipped with a much newer iGPU. The manufacturer hasn’t skimped on memory either, packing 32 GB of LPDDR5 RAM into the device, though it is non-upgradable. Other than storage capacity, the base specs are always the same. The configuration with a 512 GB SSD is currently available for €699 (US$619) on Minisforum’s online shop. For €30 more (€729, or US$639), you can also get the Mercury Series EM780 with 1 TB of storage, which is the model we are focusing on here.

In this review, we’ll be taking a look at the performance gain over the Minisforum EM680. The new Mercury Series model will also go head-to-head with other powerful mini-PCs that we’ve previously reviewed in depth. An overview of the comparison devices can be found in the table below.

Case - Lots of plastic, but extremely compact

The Minisforum Mercury Series EM780 uses the same chassis as the EM680, meaning the new model too is extremely compact. With a footprint measuring just 80 x 80 mm (3.15 x 3.15 in), the Minisforum EM780 also only takes up very little space. Moreover, the device is fairly slim at just 43 mm (1.69 in) thick. In terms of material, Minisforum has chosen to give the device a mostly plastic construction. The plastic is remarkably sturdy thanks to the compact design. Only the air vents are fitted with metal mesh, which is meant to let the components inside get sufficient fresh air.

Specifications

Despite being one of the smallest mini-PCs right now, the Minisforum Mercury Series EM780 has an impressive selection of I/Os. Whilst you certainly have to put up with some limitations, everything important is essentially present. There are a total of five USB ports, two of which offer USB4 speed. Other than the two Type-C ports, which are capable of video output, you can also connect another display via HDMI. This means up to three monitors are usable with the device simultaneously. But there is something else to take note: peripherals must support Power Delivery because the EM780 is powered over the USB-C port.

Connectivity

Inside the Mercury Series EM780, an Intel Killer Wi-Fi 6E AX1675w ensures stable and speedy wireless connection. In our realistic test, the Wi-Fi module delivered consistently good performance. That said, it wasn't quite able to reach the level of performance shown by the MediaTek RZ616 in the EM680 when connected to a 6 GHz network. The results were obtained with the help of our Asus ROG Rapture GT-AXE11000 reference router.

Accessories

The mini-PC is shipped in a relatively small box. Other than the device itself, you’ll find a small 65-watt power adapter and a USB-C cable in the box. The company has also included an RJ45 LAN adapter as well as an obligatory HDMI cable and some documentation.

Maintenance

The amount of user maintenance that can be done on the Minisforum Mercury Series EM780 is limited to a minimum. Only the bottom cover can be removed with relative ease if you ever need to replace the SSD underneath. There is no room for a second storage drive in the mini-PC anyway. It is not recommended to take the device further apart, let alone dismantle the CPU cooler. Inside the box is also a note that says liquid metal is used for heat transfer.

Performance - AMD Ryzen 7 7840U with 8 cores and 16 threads

All variants of the Mercury Series EM780 come with the AMD Ryzen 7 7840U. As the successor to the Ryzen 7 6800U, the newer SoC can run at slightly higher clock speeds and features the latest Radeon 780M iGPU. The mini-PC should be able to handle more demanding tasks well judging by these specs. The SoC is flanked by 32 GB of LPDDR5 RAM (6,400 MT/s) and a 1 TB SSD.

Test conditions

We selected the “High Performance” power mode during all performance-related tests involving this device. The only exceptions here are the power usage and noise level measurements, which were carried out in accordance with our test criteria.

With the AMD Ryzen 7 7840U, the Minisforum Mercury Series EM780 has received an efficient SoC with adequate performance. However, one thing that stood out is the comparatively low single-core performance. But the Zen 4 SoC can deliver solid results in multi-thread performance tests. Almost all the devices in our comparison are neck and neck when it comes to their averaged performance score. Only the Geekom A7 with an AMD Ryzen 9 7940HS managed to take a slightly larger lead over the rest of the pack.

Even though the Mercury Series EM780 is exceptionally tiny and thus has a much smaller cooling unit than most other mini-PCs, the level of CPU performance is still outstanding. This is clearly reflected in the AIDA64 benchmarks, where our review unit firmly took second place.

Minisforum Mercury Series EM780 in Cinebench R15 Multi loop

Running Cinebench R15 in a loop is quite demanding on the Ryzen 7 7840U. As a result, it allows us to take a peek at how well the cooling unit works. The results obtained after 50 runs show that performance remained very stable over time. With an average score of 1,896, the Minisforum Mercury Series EM780 was similarly able to secure the runner-up position in this test. Analysis of the CPU data revealed that the SoC managed to maintain a power usage of 28 watts consistently. We recorded a peak CPU temperature of nearly 70°C (158°F), which suggests Minisforum has given the EM780 an highly effective cooler.

System performance

The Minisforum Mercury Series EM780 left a positive impression in everyday use. Results from PCMark 10 also echo this sentiment. However, our review sample couldn’t keep up with the competitors in Crossmark. We repeated the test several times to ensure there wasn't any issue with the test, but this didn’t drastically change the results. Even so, the AMD Ryzen 7 7840U still delivered fantastic results in conjunction with the onboard memory.

DPC latency

When used for basic web browsing, the Minisforum Mercury Series EM780 had no issue at all with increased latency. The review unit also effortlessly handled playback of our 4K test video, though we did notice a few dropped frames. Latency only shot up when Prime95 started running. We think the EM780 would nevertheless still make for an excellent streaming client.

Max latency when several browser tabs are kept open and during 4K video playback
