Chinese mini PC maker Beelink plans to launch its first compact desktop computer with an AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX processor. The upcoming Beelink GTR6 is powered by AMD’s 8-core, 16-thread processor with a 45 watt TDP and Radeon 680M integrated graphics.
It also supports up to 64GB of DDR5-4800 memory and features two M.2 2280 slots for solid state storage.
One of those M.2 2280 slots supports a PCIe 4.0 x4 SSD with sequential read speeds up to 7,000 MB/s, while the other supports SATA 3 SSDs.
- 4 x HDMI 2.1 (up to 8K/60Hz)
- 1 x USB 3.0 Type-C
- 3 x USB 3.0 Type-A
- 2 x USB 2.0 Type-A
- 1 x 2.5 Gbps Ethernet
- 1 x 3.5mm audio
There’s also a wireless card with support for WiFi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2 and a DC power input for the included 120W (19V/6.32A) power adapter. And there’s a fingerprint reader on top of the computer for biometric security.
While this a desktop computer with a laptop-class chip, it’s one of AMD’s most powerful laptop processors to date and a relatively small system by desktop standards. So it does have a fan for active cooling, but Beelink says the fans runs at just 2600 RPM for quiet operation.
The Beelink GTR6 is available for pre-order now, with prices starting at $539 for a barebones model with no memory or storage or $749 for a system with 32GB of RAM and a 500GB SSD.
It’s expected to begin shipping in late November, 2022.
