Other Neptune mini-PCs on the way

MINISFORUM will soon introduce a new mini-PC powered by the AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX.

We already knew that the outfit was selling the Neptune HX90G which uses the Ryzen 9 5900HX and a Radeon RX 6600M GPU, however not it looks like it is putting out a Neptune HX99G too.

The Neptune HX99G has a Ryzen 9 6900HX, a change that should deliver better GPU improvements than CPU performance upgrades. The Ryzen 9 6900HX outperforms its predecessor by approximately six per cent, despite its reliance on newer Zen 3+ CPU cores, a die shrink, and a 300 MHz higher boost clock speed.

The Ryzen 9 6900HX also contains the Radeon 680M, AMD’s most powerful integrated GPU. Still, the Radeon 680M managed just over 40 per cent of the Radeon RX 6600M's performance which might explain why MINISFORUM’s is still including the Radeon RX 6600M. Additionally, the Neptune HX99G will launch with up to 32 GB of RAM, 512 GB of storage, plus the following ports:

1x 2.5 Gbit Ethernet
2x USB 4
3x USB 3.1 Type-A
1x USB 3.0 Type-C
1x USB 3.0 Type-A

The Neptune HX99G will hit the shops in Japan with a $1,316 price tag. There is no word how much it will sell for outside the Land of the Rising Sun.
