A small form factor PC with lots of power. 

If there exists an ideal form factor for 55W mobile CPUs, it extends beyond the limitations of a laptop chassis. A compact PC with a 6-liter chassis offers the advantages of accommodating a full-sized Mini-ITX motherboard and an efficient cooling solution that operates quietly, avoiding excessive noise.

Minisforum has just unveiled their latest system based on AMD’s Ryzen 7045HX Dragon Range and Intel’s 13th Gen Core Raptor Lake-HX product series, which feature desktop-class processors in a mobile form factor. Users can expect up to 16 Zen4 cores or alternatively a hybrid 8P+16E configuration from Intel. Both series come with a default power rating of 55W, but with the improved cooling, users should enjoy prolonged boosts and higher performance compared to traditional small laptop configurations.

Furthermore, the company has confirmed that both systems will support PCIe Gen5 specifications, which is now available on both platforms. This is to be expected, considering we are dealing with a Mini-ITX board, and it confirms the use of at least the B650 chipset for AMD.

The PCIe slot is conveniently placed at the top of the chassis, which may lead to support of all kind of discrete graphics, providing a powerful MiniPC for gaming.

However, Minisforum has not yet disclosed the release date or pricing of this new system. The departure of Intel from the NUC product series has created a void that would be well-served by competing Chinese manufacturers like Minisforum.
