After launching the Intel-powered AtomMan X7 Ti a few weeks ago, Minisforum has now announced the X7 Pt mini PC with AMD at its heart and liquid cooling. Although the lack of an internal discrete GPU might be a concern for many, the system's inclusion of a high-speed OCuLink port might be enough to ease such worries.

Minisforum, a company that is well regarded for its impressive lineup of mini PCs, recently unveiled the AtomMan X7 Ti, featuring up to the Intel Core Ultra 9 185H processor and OCuLink support. Now, at Computex 2024, the company announced yet another addition to the AtomMan family, dubbed the X7 Pt, which happens to be the first mini PC from the company with support for liquid cooling.

Unlike the X7 Ti which is Intel-based, the AtomMan X7 Pt is powered by the AMD Ryzen 9 8945HS processor, which can be paired with up to 64 GB of DDR5-5600 memory. The 8-core Ryzen 9 8945HS belongs to the Hawk Point family of APUs and boasts 8-cores and 16-threads of Zen 4 goodness, and is a hair faster than the Core Ultra 9 185H found in the X7 Ti. Interestingly, this mini PC includes a liquid cooling system which Minisforum claims will be able to keep the temperature and noise levels below 75°C and 40 dB respectively.

Although the system lacks internal discrete graphics, users can leverage the included OCuLink port, which offers speeds of up to 8 GB/s, substantially faster than the 5 GB/s that Thunderbolt 4 offers. Minisforum offers options such as the R3GAF eGPU and DEG1 graphics dock, both supporting the OCuLink interface for faster connections. For those not willing to splurge extra on eGPU-based solutions, the integrated 12-CU RDNA 3-based Radeon 780M GPU should be plenty fast for non-intensive graphics workloads.

As for connectivity, the AtomMan X7 Pt features a generous selection of ports, including 4x USB 3.2 Gen 2 (Type-A), dual USB 4, dual 2.5G ethernet, HDMI 2.1, DisplayPort 1.4, and an audio jack. For storage, it features dual M.2 2280 PCIe 4.0 slots, while for wireless connectivity an M.2 2230 slot is present for WiFi 6E and Bluetooth 5.3 support (WiFi 6E + BT 5.3 AX210 NGW Wireless Card curr. $27 on Amazon).

There is no word on pricing or availability yet, but more details can be expected in the upcoming weeks.
