Minisforum UM890 Pro, mini PC with AMD Ryzen 9 8945HS and OCulink

The new Minisforum UM890 Pro has just been introduced. A computer with the powerful AMD Ryzen 9 8945HS processor and offering an Oculink port.

This mini PC thanks to its OCulink port is a good alternative for users who want to connect an external GPU using this port. In addition, thanks to the new AMD Gen8 processors we have an IA core up to 16 TOPS to accelerate that kind of work. These chips include an interesting RADEON 780M GPU that also offers a good base power as we saw in our Review.

This mini PC also features two slots for SDD M.2 NVMe PCIe 4.0, two slots for SODIMM DDR5 and an Intel M2 Wifi 6E card of last generation.

Minisforum UM890 Pro Mini-PC Specifications

The new Minisforum UM890 Pro computer has a version in which we can opt for a powerful AMD Ryzen 9 8945HS processormanufactured in 4 nm with a TDP of between 35 and 54 W and cooled by a fan. This chip is an Octa Core with 16 threads that reaches 5.2 Ghz in turbo mode. For graphics we have an integrated AMD 780M with 12 GPU RDNA 3 that reaches 2.8 Ghz maximum speed.

In the lower model Minisforum UM880 Pro we have the AMD Ryzen 7 8845HS with Zen 4 CPU cores manufactured with TSMC 4 nm FinFET technology and with the same 780M GPU that reaches 2.7 Ghz. A chip that has 8 cores and 16 threads that can reach 5.1 GHz in turbo mode and has a base frequency of 3.8 GHz.

In these two processors we have an IA core that offers a performance of 16 TOPS to accelerate these processes. In addition, we have two highly efficient active fans, which are very quiet.
