MINISFORUM HN2673, a mini PC with Intel Arc A730M GPU

We already have for sale on Amazon the MINISFORUM HN2673 one of the few examples of mini PC that carries an Intel Arc A730M GPU.

As we say, highlights its GPU in the MXM format, an Intel Arc A730M with ARC Alchemist Architecture in which we have 6 GB of GDDR6 VRAM and that we would put close to the NVIDIA RTX 3060 in terms of performance. In this MinisForum Neptune Series we have an Intel Core i7-12650H processor that has a TDP of only 45 W and has 10 cores that guarantee that we can move any app on Windows without performance problems.

The cooling system of the MINISFORUM HN2673 is maximized to support this processor and the dedicated GPU that accompanies it, as it has 4 fans. Its chassis, which as you can see comes with a slightly larger format than the one found in traditional mini PCs, can be placed horizontally and vertically thanks to a small foot. Thanks to its size, we have multiple ports such as 4 video outputs and ample storage expansion options.
