ASRock today announced The Mars 4000U is the world’s thinnest mini PC based on Ryzen 4000U (Renoir) processors, she claims.
So, the system is enclosed in a 0.7-liter housing. Device dimensions – 194 (L) x159 (W) x26 (H) mm. Judging by the manufacturer’s website description, the novelty is not a mini-PC but a Barebone kit for assembling it. But they may also appear on sale in the form of ready-made PCs.
There are five configurations with energy-efficient Ryzen 4000U processors – from Ryzen 3 4300U (4 cores / 4 threads, 2.7 / 3.7 GHz) to Ryzen 7 4800U (8 cores / 16 threads, 1.6 / 4.2 GHz) … Simultaneously, there are no differences between the modifications, except for processors (and the GPU built into them). The system supports the ability to install two SO-DIMM DDR4-3200 memory modules, one 2.5-inch SATA 6Gb / s drive, and one M.2 SSD. There is also one M.2 slot for a Wi-Fi module, and an Intel AX200 (Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0) is offered as an option.
The set of ports includes USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-A (x4), USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C, USB 2.0 (x2), RJ45, 3.5 mm (x2), SD slot, HDMI and D-Sub. A 65W external adapter is used to power the computer.
Alas, there are no pricing details yet.
