The MINISFORUM Mercury EM680 is a new low-power mini PC that is already arriving in stores that basically stands out for its AMD Ryzen 7 6800U processor.
This is a chip with a high performance and that we see for the first time in a mini PC, since until now we had only seen it in different portable consoles that are so fashionable and that benefit from its AMD Radeon 680M graphics. This Minisforum is really compact, since it measures only 1/4 L, minimal and far from the size of any tower. We are also struck by the presence of a pair of USB4 ports capable of reaching a data transfer rate of 40 Gbps, allowing video output up to 8K@60Hz resolution and PD power that can reach 100W.
A mini PC that has nothing to envy to many towers, with a high level configuration despite its tiny size.
