The Ryzen 5000 series products are available in the laptop market but it has made no presence in the mini PC segment. Luckily, the news about Cezanne’ based Mini-PCs have started to surface.
The computer manufacturers, Morefine Focus and Minisforum, have announced the next-gen AMD Ryzen 5000 series based Mini-PCs.
The MoreFine S500+ MiniPC is based on the high-end Ryzen 9 5900HX. The unlocked processor has 8-cores and 16-threads, which allows it to achieve a boost clock speed of up to 4.6 GHz. Morefine offers two M.2 2280 SATA/NVMe drivers and additionally a single 2.5 inch HDD or SATA drive for storage. Please note that Morefine has incorrectly listed the “4-core 16-thread’ configuration on the Indiegogo website.
The mini PC can house up to 32GB DDR4-3200 RAM or LPDDR4 with up to 4266 MT/s. As far as the connectivity is concerned, it has Wifi-6, Bluetooth 5.0, a DisplayPort 1.4, HDMI 2.0 outputs, and dual RJ45 connectors (one supports 2.5 Gbit).
On the other hand, the Minisforum team’s teaser shows a slightly larger device equipped with AMD Ryzen APU. The capacitor layout indicates Renoir series , but the processor SKU label clearly lists ‘X,’ which suggests that the device might be powered by Cezanne silicon.
None of the manufacturers have officially confirmed the price yet.
VideoCardz has received a confirmation from Minisforum stating that they are indeed working on 5900HX based MiniPC.
