Minisforum recently unveiled their newest budget-friendly Mini-PC ‘HX77G’ tailored for gamers. Initially equipped with the AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX CPU featuring Zen3 architecture, a CPU switch has been made, leading to a modest price decrease.
Unlike the 6900HX, the new 7735HS CPU runs at lower clock speeds, reaching a maximum boost of 4.75 GHz and a base clock of 3.2 GHz, in contrast to the 6900HX’s 4.9 GHz and 3.3 GHz, respectively. These changes are unlikely to have a substantial impact on performance, as the other specifications closely resemble those of the high-end HX99G Mini-PC model. What remains crucial is that both processors make use of the Zen3+ architecture.
This system sets itself apart by marrying a discrete Radeon RX 6600M graphics card with a potent processor. Unlike numerous other Mini-PCs available, this product is distinctly designed for gaming. Although the Navi 23-based graphics might not be geared towards high-fidelity 4K gaming, they should prove more than capable of running most AAA titles at lower resolutions.
Minisforum has officially stated that the upcoming HX77G PC will retain its dual-fan cooling system and liquid metal for improved efficiency. It’s important to mention that dismantling the system could pose a challenge, but accessing storage and memory should still be relatively straightforward.
The system is presently available at $639 for the base model. If you opt to include 32GB of DDR5-4800 memory and a 512GB SSD for storage, the price will be increased to $779. This represents a saving of $100 and $116 compared to the 6900HX-based model, respectively.
