Mini PC systems had become all the rage recently and rightly so. They can carry a ton of power within such a tiny frame and that’s what makes them super convenient and attractive. Most of the mini PCs have been sticking to Intel as far as their hardware is concerned and let’s not forget that there are mini PCs out there that are powered by AMD. In a recent announcement, Minisforum has announced that it will be releasing its first model which will come with an AMD graphics card.
Minisforum has announced the HX90G. They haven’t listed it on the company’s website but thanks to the press release which was emailed, we have the pertinent specs. The HX90G comes as part of a new products series which has been termed as Neptune.
It will feature both the Intel as well as the AMD hardware with options of 12th Gen Alder Lake going all the way up to a Ryzen 9 6900HX Zen 3+ CPU. The new mini PC is going to get the Neptune series started by pairing the Ryzen 9 5900HX with the Radeon RX 6650M. Both of these will be packed inside the tiny form factor of the mini PC which is a total of 2.8L in volume.
Although the Ryzen 9 5900HX is an old story now, it still remains to be a top mobile processor. The RX 6650M on the other hand is equipped with the Navi 23 GPU which is based on the RDNA 2 architecture from AMD. It comes with 28 compute units and 1,729 stream processors. It offers a game frequency of 2,222MHz and a GDDR6 memory of 8 GB.
Minisforum says that the CPU will consume 50W when it’s performing at its full load and the GPU takes 100W.
