Morefine M600 features Ryzen 7 7840HS at a lower price
A Chinese manufacturer specializing in small form factor systems has introduced a new AMD Phoenix system, expanding its lineup.
The company previously unveiled the 8-core Ryzen 9 7940HS APU model priced at $619 in the US. It is now accompanied by a more affordable variant featuring the Ryzen 7 7840HS Phoenix APU with Zen4 and RDNA3 graphics. The disparity between the two APUs is merely a reduction of 100 MHz in the boost clock. Thus, M600 system, priced at $549, offers a cost-effective option. It’s important to note that this is the price for the barebone system, excluding storage and memory.
The Morefine system provides convenient display and data connectivity with a USB4 Type-C (with Thunderbolt 3 support) and two USB 3.2 Type-A ports at the front, along with four additional USB ports and 2.5G Ethernet connectors at the back. Underneath, the system accommodates two DDR5 SODIMM slots supporting up to 5600 MT/s, along with support for two M.2 2280 PCIe SSDs. Interestingly, there’s also room for a 2.5-inch SATA SSD or HDD if required, offering ample storage and memory options.
Encased in a compact 149x145x5 mm chassis, the system features a single blower fan attached to two copper heatpipes. Users will find DisplayPort and HDMI ports, supporting resolutions up to 8K, further enhancing the display capabilities.
Notably, the system can operate at a 65W TDP, a feature shared with certain Mini-PC manufacturers like the Beelink GTR7 series. This ensures that the APU will maintain its highest CPU clock without throttling even when reaching the power limit. Moreover, such a TDP is typically associated with AMD Ryzen G-Series desktop CPUs, providing users with high power in a compact form factor.
According to the company, the system maintains good thermal and noise levels in the 65W mode, with temperatures not exceeding 70°C and noise levels ranging from 33 to 38 dB. These results apply to gaming workloads, while CPU-intensive benchmarks may yield different outcomes.
The system can now be purchased from the official website with optional memory and storage upgrades.
