We already have available in store one of the most powerful low power mini PCs available today, the Minisforum EliteMini HX90.
A mini PC that undoubtedly stands out for mounting a powerful AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX APU, a chip for high performance laptops with Zen 3 architecture (Cezanne), a TDP of 45 W and an integrated Radeon RX Vega 8 GPU with 512 stream processors that will allow us to run many games in 1080p resolution adjusting graphics quality. The hardware details accompany this Ryzen 9, as we have a good configuration of connectors for RAM and storage expansion and wireless connectivity with WiFi 6.
Its external design is not far behind either, as we have a case made of carbon fiber that gives it a very modern look and has a good perimeter grille to promote good ventilation. A powerful mini PC, but for the moment at a very high price.
