The Simply NUC Aspen is a new series of Mini-PCs based on AMD Ryzen 4000 Renoir APUs. The Aspen can be configured with up to 64 GB of dual-channel RAM and a 2 TB PCIe NVMe SSD.

Simply NUC has made the step up to selling AMD Ryzen-powered Mini-PCs, having relied on Intel's chipsets until now. The company has opted for AMD's Renoir architecture and offers four APUs ranging from the Ryzen 3 4300U to the Ryzen 7 4800U.

If the Simply NUC Aspen looks familiar, then that is because Simply NUC has based its new Mini-PCs on the ASUS PN50 - a product that ASUS unveiled this summer. Simply NUC differentiates the Aspen from the PN50 by offering customisation options, while it also promises to install the latest drivers and firmware on its machines before dispatching them.

All models start with 4 GB of DDR4 RAM and 128 GB of M.2 SATA storage. However, Simply NUC offers up to 64 GB of dual-channel RAM and a 2 TB NVMe SSD, should you need more memory. The company claims that it can build and ship custom orders within 48 hours. The Simply NUC Aspen is available in the following configurations:

Model Processor GPU (integrated) Starting price
ASPN50r3 AMD Ryzen 3 4300U Radeon Vega 5 US$479
ASPN50r5 AMD Ryzen 5 4500U Radeon Vega 6 US$579
ASPN50r7 AMD Ryzen 7 4700U Radeon Vega 7 US$679
ASPN50r8 AMD Ryzen 7 4800U Radeon Vega 8 US$779
