Still compatible with full-size video cards thanks to an external mounting dock, the MINISFORUM B550 only supports up to 65 W TDP processors. The configurations available for pre-order start at US$499, the price of the barebone variant with a Ryzen 7 4700G processor. The retail package will include the expansion dock for an external GPU.

Although it was supposed to handle a Ryzen 9 5900X, the MINISFORUM B550 will only be able to support up to 65 W TDP processors. Fortunately, the wait is now over and those interested can finally place their pre-orders for no less than eight hardware configurations driven by the Ryzen 7 4700G and Ryzen 7 5700G processors from AMD.

Without further ado, these are the configurations up for pre-order and their prices:

  • Ryzen 7 4700G barebone, US$499
  • Ryzen 7 5700G barebone, US$599
  • Ryzen 7 4700G 16/256 GB, US$619
  • Ryzen 7 5700G 16/256 GB, US$699
  • Ryzen 7 4700G 16/512 GB, US$639
  • Ryzen 7 5700G 16/512 GB, US$729
  • Ryzen 7 4700G 32/512 GB, US$719
  • Ryzen 7 5700G 32/512 GB, US$809

The motherboard used in the B550 supports up to 64 GB of DDR4 memory and has two M.2 2280 SSD slots. PCIe 4.0, Bluetooth 5.2, and WiFi 6 are also supported.

The retail package includes the expansion dock for the use of an external full-size GPU, but the PSU needed to power the card will have to be purchased separately. Obviously, the mini PC works without an external video card as well. A small hard case for carrying the B550 is also present, alongside a VESA mount, an HDMI cable, power adapter, power cable, as well as a SATA cable.

If everything goes according to the schedule, MINISFORUM should start shipping the orders at the end of May.
