ASRock recently announced a new lineup of Ryzen 4000U powered Mini-PCs, the 4X4 BOX-4000 series. The new mini-PCs in the lineup include the 4X4 BOX-4800U, the 4X4 BOX-4500U, and the 4X4 BOX-4300U.
The names are fairly self-evident. These parts will feature the Ryzen 7 4800U, Ryzen 5 4500U, and Ryzen 3 4300U respectively. These 15W Renoir parts feature up to 8 Zen 2 cores and 16 threads, paired with Vega graphics. The 15W TDP means that the 4X4 BOX lineup can deliver high performance with minimal cooling requirements, making for a very low-profile SFF form factor design.
Apart from the inclusion of Ryzen 4000 APUs, the 4X4 BOX series has a number of other handy additions. You get a pair of LAN ports running at up to 2.5 Gbits and Intel WiFi 6 for fast wireless and wired connectivity. While there isn’t a lot of space inside the 4X4 BOX, you’ll still be able to add in an m.2 SSD and a 2.5-in SATA3 hard drive. In terms of memory, you’re looking at up to 3200 MHz DDR4 SODIMM in with a capacity of up to 64GB. Generous display connectivity (for the form factor), with HDMI 2.0a and DP 1.2a inputs, meaning that users can drive up to four 4K displays, making this a good fit for low-profile kiosks if you’re not in the market for a Matrox.
