Minisforum Launches EM680 Mini PC
Minisforum announces the introduction of the innovative Mercury series EM680 mini PC. This diminutive machine, only a quarter of a liter in volume, can be comfortably placed anywhere from desktops to handbags, and even in larger pockets, making it an absolute convenience for those who require portability.
According to TechPowerup, the EM680 mini PC measures a mere 80×80×43 mm in size and weighs in at 238 grams. It is powered by an AMD Ryzen 7 6800U processor, manufactured using TSMC’s advanced 6nm process. Equipped with cores based on the “Zen 3+” architecture, it boasts 8 cores, 16 threads, a base frequency of 2.7 GHz, a boost frequency of 4.7 GHz, a 4MB secondary cache, and a 16MB tertiary cache. Its configurable TDP ranges from 15W to 28W. The integrated graphics are provided by the Radeon 680M, which houses 12 CUs or 768 stream processors operating at 2.2 GHz.
The EM680 mini PC comes equipped with dual-channel LPDDR5-6400 memory, available in either 16GB or 32GB variants. Due to its onboard design, the memory is not replaceable. It features an M.2 2230 slot for PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD. It also supports Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.3, again using an onboard design instead of the commonly used, replaceable M.2 2230 slot module. Three 4K@60Hz display outputs can be achieved via an HDMI port and two Thunderbolt 4 ports.
The device also boasts two USB4 ports (with Alt PD support), three USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-A ports, a 3.5mm audio jack, and a TF card reader. It supports the Windows 11 Pro operating system and comes packaged with a 65W GaN Type-C adapter.
Minisforum claims that the EM680 mini PC heralds a new era in the realm of ultra-compact mini PCs. Despite its palm-sized dimensions, it competes with traditional desktops in terms of performance, meeting everyday user demands. Effortlessly handling office tasks and light gaming, it exemplifies the charm of technological advancement.
