ASUS & AMD Mini-PC features Ryzen 6000 APUs

The discovery was made by Reddit “eyeoncomputers” who literally had eyes on a new MiniPC featuring AMD Ryzen 6000 series.

ASUS VIVO PN52 (Ryzen 5000) Mini-PC

Redditor found that ASUS is preparing a new VIVO PN53 system featuring 6000H-series processors and are, in fact, already listed by some retailers. The system will be available either as a barebone or already equipped with memory and storage.

The VIVO PN53 will be avaialbe with 6-core Ryzen 5 6600H processor, 8-core Ryzen 7 6800H and even Ryzen 9 6900HX. These are the latest AMD Rembrandt APUs with Zen3+ CPU and RDNA2 GPU architecture. A preconfigured PN53 systems with 16GB of RAM and 512GB SSD and 6800H APU will cost around 1000 EUR (with VAT). The same system without memory and storage will cost less than 800 EUR.

The flagship configuration featuring 55W Ryzen 9 6900HX will cost around 100 EUR more, here’s detailed info as listed by retailers:

  • ASUS PN53-S5020MD (90MS02H1-M000M0)
    • Ryzen5 6600H/8GB/256GB SSD/black/without OS
    • Price: ~ € 840.00
  • ASUS PN53-S7021MD (90MS02H1-M000N0)
    • Ryzen7 6800H/16GB/512GB SSD/black/without OS
    • Price: ~ € 1000.00
  • ASUS PN53-S9022MD (90MS02H1-M000P0)
    • Ryzen9 6900HX/16GB/512GB SSD/black/without OS
    • Price: ~ € 1100.00

What is important to note is that this will AMD’s first Mini-PCs with DDR5 memory (even some Intel NUC 12 still don’t have it). This is simply because Ryzen 6000 series do not support DDR4. Furthermore, VIVO PN53 is equipped with the latest 2.5G Ethernet and WiFi 6E and networking (either Intel AX211 or MediaTek MT7922).

The VIVO PN53 has USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C connector that supports Power Delivery and DisplayPort 1.4 standards. It also has two HDMI 2.0 outputs (not HDMI 2.1), but there is an option to configure one rear I/O slot with HDMI 2.1, VGA, serial or additional Ethernet port. There is no sign of USB4, though. Definitely, customers will need to pay attention to the exact system configuration they are buying to ensure it meets their criteria.

Unfortunately, there are no photos of the PN53 system yet, but there is a good chance it will look very similar to the PN52 with Ryzen 5000 (pictured above). The pricing appears to be similar as well, with around 50 EUR higher price for AMD Rembrandt.
