Minisforum has just launched its new B550 Mini-PC with the option of two AMD Ryzen CPUs, the space for a discrete GPU, up to 64GB of RAM, and so much more.
The new Minisforum B550 Mini-PC system packs the AMD B550 chipset, with the Ryzen 7 4700G (3.6GHz base, 4.4GHz boost CPU clock) or the Ryzen 7 5700G (3.8GHz base, 4.6GHz boost). There's a regular AM4 socket so you can upgrade the CPU up to a 65W TDP model (so, no support for the 5800X, 5900X, or 5950X).
Inside, you've got support for up to 64GB of RAM, 2 x M.2 2280 SSD slots, and depending on the CPU you put inside of it -- PCIe 4.0 support, so if you put in a discrete GPU -- making it a lean, mean machine. The discrete GPU uses an expansion dock that is connected with the compute and discrete GPU, which looks awesome anyway.
