We can now reserve the first low power mini PC that we see with an AMD Ryzen 5 4500U APU that until now we had only seen in laptops.
The MINISFORUM HM50 debuts the Hexa Core AMD Ryzen 5 4500U a chip that has a very balanced performance and low power consumption that make it very suitable for a desktop PC. This new Minisforum arrives in a small size case, 149.6×149.6×55.5 mm, with a typical design of this brand, but this time allows the inclusion of up to 2 SATA3 2.5 mm storage drives. We are also positively attention to some details such as its RJ45 Gigabit Gaming 2.5G network port, its Wifi 6 and the inclusion of Windows 10 Pro as OS. Is a very interesting solution for day-to-day use that will allow us to move any program smoothly and even run many games at a decent graphics quality and will be available in late April.
