ASRock’s Jupiter line of computers are little desktop PCs that measure about 7″ x 7″ x 1.3″ and which support 65 watt or lower-power processors. The company already offers a model with support for 8th and 9th-gen Intel processors. But this year ASRock is adding an AMD model to the lineup.
The company unveiled the ASRock Jupiter A320 at the Consumer Electronics Show this week.
The computer features a new motherboard with the AMD A320 chipset and support for AM4 APU processors up to 65 watts.
Open up the case and you’ll find a 2.5 inch drive bay for a SATA hard drive or SSD plus an M.2 2280 slot for solid state storage. There’s also support for dual-channel DDR4 memory, and ports include:
- 2 x USB Type-C
- 6 x USB Type-A
There’s also support for an M.2 wireless card and optional support for enterprise features such as TPM security.

With Ryzen 4000 APUs announced, I definitely will wait for a 4600H.
This is exactly what I’ve been waiting for. I’d like a home theatre PC with decent GPU power for playing emulators, and light PC games.
An Intel NUC or similar just isn’t cost effective choice. Sure the i3 models are priced okay, but if you want a good integrated GPU, you need to go for three expensive Hades Canyon model.
I’m currently on the Skull Canyon NUC and I have a ultra slim Lenovo Thunderbolt 3 GTX 1050 for an external GPU. However, the performance of the GTX 1050 (the mobile version in this case) hasn’t aged well. So I’m really thinking about upgrading to a Hades Canyon model since that integrated GPU is actually better than a GTX 1050. But like you said, it is quite expensive and I don’t think the price will go down much if at all.
Cool! I like when mobo manufacturers do PCs. I feel integration can be even tighter. Its not merely slapping together parts.
