Today we found on AliExpress a new board called Topton N17, which integrates the powerful high-efficiency AMD Ryzen 9 processor.

This board offers us a good platform to assemble a mini PC with high performance. We have a lot of ports, with them we can install several disk drives and also connect a discrete GPU in its PCIe x8 slot.
