Minisforum, a company that specialized in assembling mini PCs, announced the EliteMini HX90, a small powerful PC equipped with AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX, a mobile APU that has Radeon RX Vega 8 graphics. The mini PC supports up to 64GB of DDR4-3200MHz memory in dual channel, in addition to different expansion settings.
The Ryzen 9 5900HX features an 8-core, 16-thread CPU based on Zen 3, and base frequencies of 3.3GHz and boost up to 4.6GHz. The Vega 8 that integrates the APU has eight Computational Units and reaches 2100MHz.
The APU is manufactured in 7nm from TSMC and allows overclocking. All this power will be cooled by an air cooler using premium liquid metal, and a fan that reaches around 30 dB at full speed.
Storage and Port
In terms of storage and expansions, the EliteMini HX90 comes in up to four different configurations: without RAM and SSD; 16GB of memory plus 256GB of SSD; 16GB of memory plus 512GB of SSD; and 32GB of memory plus 512GB of SSD. In addition to the M.2 2280 PCIe slot, the mini PC has two 2.5″ SATA 3.0 slots for SSD/HD up to 7mm thick.
The mini PC offers a generous amount of ports for its size: two HDMI ports, two DisplayPorts, one Gigabit Ethernet port, five USB 3.0, one USB-C, one Clear CMOS button, and four 3.5mm audio jacks. Wireless connection is handled by the Intel AX200 Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0. Meanwhile, the entire system is powered by a 119.7-watt external source.
The EliteMini HX90 has a carbon fiber body with a grainy texture on the surface. “As a high-performance, recyclable material, carbon fiber is not only rich in texture and delicate in hand but also has high strength, good thermal conductivity, and corrosion resistance,” the product page describes.
Price and Availability
The mini PC is on pre-sale and is priced at between $649 for the model without RAM and SSD, up to US$909.00 for the more complete one with 32GB of RAM and 512GB of SSD. All four models are currently $100 off.
The small computer comes with a stand for standing up. Minisforum says the EliteMini HX90 comes with Windows 10 installed and is set to receive Windows 11.
