The upcoming Beelink SER6 Pro+ is a compact desktop computer with a metal chassis, a fabric cover, and an AMD Ryzen 7 7735HS processor, making it one of the first mini PCs announced to feature a Ryzen 7000 mobile processor.

But that chip is so close to the Ryzen 7 6800H processor that powers the Beelink SER6 Pro (which launched in late 2022), that the two computers are nearly identical in most respects.

That’s because not all Ryzen 7000 mobile chips are created equal. AMD’s rather confusing naming scheme means that the first digit gives you an idea of the year a chip was released, but you have to look at the third digit to find out what kind of CPU is at the heart of the processor. And you have to consult a spec sheet to discover anything about the graphics.

So I’ll save you some time: the Ryzen 7 7735HS and Ryzen 6 6800H both feature eight AMD Zen 3+ CPU cores with 3.2 GHz base frequencies. They both feature 2.2 GHz Radeon 680M integrated graphics with 12 RDNA 2 GPU cores. And they both have 20MB of total cache.

One thing setting the chips apart is that the Ryzen 7 7735HS has a top burst speed of 4.75 GHz while the Ryzen 7 6800H tops out at 4.7 GHz. I doubt you’ll notice much of a difference in real-world performance.

AMD also notes that the newer chip can be configured to run at 35 to 54 watts and supports both DDR5 and LPDDR5 memory, while the Ryzen 7 6800H is a 45-watt processor that only works with DDR5 RAM. But Beelink says the SER6 Pro+ will have two SODIMM slots for DDR5 memory, just like the SER6 Pro.

It’s unclear whether the company will make any changes to the default TDP, but according to the folks at MINIXPC, one of the reasons Beelink is launching the new SER6 Pro+ is to address overheating issues that affected the original SER6 Pro, so it’s possible the PC maker could decide to lower the default power level to 35-watts.

Like its predecessor, the new Beelink SER6 Pro+ is expected to feature an M.2 2280 slot for PCIe Gen 4 storage, a 2.5 inch bay for a hard drive or SSD, a fan for active cooling, and a wireless card with support for WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2, and a set of ports that includes:

  • 1 x USB4
  • 3 x USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A
  • 1 x USB 2.0 Type-A
  • 2 x HDMI 2.0
  • 1 x 3.5mm audio
  • 1 x 2.5 GbE Ethernet
  • 1 x DC power input

Beelink says the SER6 Pro+ will be available in mid-February for $689 and up, but MINIXPC is already taking pre-orders for the Beelink SER6 Pro+ with prices starting at $499 for a barebones model or $649 for a version with 32GB of RAM and a 500GB SSD.

  1. I think I understand what is going on here. The 7735HS is a Dragon Range chip, which is only a refresh. What people are waiting on are the Phoenix chips. That would be the AMD Ryzen 7 7940HS, which is made on TSMC 4, not TSMC 6. It also has the RDNA 3 Radeon 780M iGPU instead of the RDNA 2 Radeon 680M iGPU. (There is also the AMD Ryzen 7 7840HS, which is the same chip but with lower CPU and GPU clock speeds that are probably better for small form factor/passive cooling devices like mini-PCs.)

    That is what everyone is waiting on, because – according to AMD’s marketing – a mini PC with Dragon Range chips should have the same performance and power efficiency as the new Mac Mini with the M2 and M2 Pro. But I guess we will have to wait until a company finally makes one.

  2. I guess the similarities are they it only merits a “+” at the end of the previous model’s name
    and why they haven’t bothered to change the chassis (or get more than one type C port)
