New Mini-PC comes with a fast AMD Ryzen processor and four DisplayPorts
The Maxtang AIV1605 is a particularly compact PC based on an AMD Ryzen V1605B. With four cores, the Zen microarchitecture processor has a boost frequency of up to 3.6 GHz, 4 MB of L3 cache and a configurable TDP of up to 25 W. The V1650B also supports SMT, allowing it to execute up to eight threads simultaneously.
Maxtang has paid particular attention to image outputs, with the AIV1605 featuring four 4K DisplayPort 1.3 connections that support HDR. The AIV1605 relies on its processor's Radeon Vega 8 GPU for graphics, and can be configured with up to 32 GB of DDR4 RAM spread across two SODIMM slots.
The AIV1605 features an M.2 port too, along with a SATA connection for installing 2.5-inch drives. Maxtang has provided the mini-PC with eight USB Type-A ports, of which two operate on the newer USB 3.0 standard. There are dual Gigabit Ethernet ports and a second M.2 slot that is intended for a Wi-Fi card, too. The machine measures 182 x 180 x 37 mm and weighs around 1 kg.
The AIV1605 starts at US$466.39 without any RAM or storage, with prices rising to US$600.79 for 16 GB of RAM and a 512 GB M.2 SSD. Maxtang also sells a version with a 1 TB HDD and 16 GB of RAM for US$608.45. All models can be configured with a TPM chip too, which typically costs US$11 depending on the configuration chosen.
