ASRock is ready to launch the new 4×4 BOX-4000 mini-PC on the market, a super-compact system that fits in the palm of your hand but does not compromise on performance thanks to the use of the Ryzen 4000 mobile U series processors, announced by AMD in March.
The Taiwanese company is not new in the compact mini-PC segment – see the ASRock Mars series unveiled last November – however on this occasion it opts for an even more compact solution – extreme if you will – especially if we consider the relationship with the performance offered. .
With a chassis measuring 110 x 117.5 x 47.85mm, ASRock 4×4 BOX-4000 is available in three different variants, with AMD Ryzen 7 4800U, Ryzen 5 4600U and Ryzen 3 4300U processors respectively. The more powerful variant with Ryzen 7 4800U will be able to count on an 8 core / 16 thread CPU component (up to 4.2 GHz) and an integrated Vega 8 GPU with a frequency of 1750 MHz; the TDP is only 15W.
The ASRock mini-PC supports up to 64GB of DDR4 3200 memory (SODIMM), a M.2 PCIe gen 3.0 x4 SSD and a 2.5 "SSD / HDD with SATA interface; as for the expansion we report instead USB 3.2 gen 2 (with USB-C), HDMI 2.0a, WiFi AX and 2.5G network card.
ASRock has not yet announced the price of the 4×4 BOX-4000 mini-PCs (more details in STREET), but waiting for information we remind you that it is not the only one to have bet on compact PCs with AMD Ryzen 4000 mobile processors. Last June, in fact, ASUS also presented the PN50, a mini-PC designed to counter Intel's NUCs. The price for the version with Ryzen 7 47800U is around 560/570 euros.
