Minisforum announces B550 mini PC with Ryzen 7 5700G APU

MinisForum gave us a little taste of its B550 mini PC last year and today it has finally launched with a pre-sale campaign. This will be the company’s most powerful mini PC yet.

The new mini PC will feature AMD’s B550 chipset and will be available with two different CPUs. One is the 4700G with a base clock of 3.6GHz and a boost clock of 4.4GHz. The other option is the 5700G with a base clock of 3.8GHz and a boost clock of 4.6GHz. Beyond these two options, customers have even more flexibility; they will be able to replace the CPU with the one they would like. The mini PC supports the AM4-socket Ryzen 4000/5000 series CPUs with TDP less than or equal to 65W. The B550 also supports PCIe4.0, but it depends on the CPU you choose for the PC.

There is one thing to note that not all supported CPUs have an integrated GPU. This means that in such a case in the absence of an integrated GPU, the PC will have to make do with an external discrete GPU. Therefore, the whole package gets an expansion dock that can be connected to the PC and the discrete GPU. Please note that users will need to purchase the GPU separately along with the PSU required to power the GPU.

Going to the specs, the B550 mini PC will measure 20.859cm x 24.088cm x 12.813cm and weigh 3208g. The interfaces include 2xHDMI ports, 1xDisplay port, 4xUSB3.2 ports, 1xUSB-C port, 1xRJ45 2.5Gb Ethernet port, 1x line out and 1x microphone.
