The MINISFORUM HX200G is a compact desktop computer with the guts of a gaming laptop.

Unveiled at CES 2024, the little computer features a AMD Ryzen 9 7945HX 16-core, 32-thread processor and a AMD Radeon RX 7600M XT discrete GPU with 32 RDNA 3 compute units.

While the 7945HX processor has a default 55 watt TDP, MINISFORUM says the HX200G has enough cooling power to allow that chip to use up to 85 watts while the GPU consumes up to 120 watts of power. That’s possible thanks to a combination four fans and application of liquid metal

The MINISFORUM HX200G is also one of the first mini PCs announced to feature support for PCIe Gen 5 solid state storage, and the little computer has two RGB backlit panels for decoration because… gaming, I guess.

MINISFORUM hasn’t announced pricing or other detailed specs yet, but promotional pictures show the system has at least one USB-C port and one USB-A port on the front, along with an audio jack, power button, a large vent, and what looks like a microphone array.

  1. Considering that it’s just laptop without battery, keyboard, screen and touchpad the price should be competitive, they will probably make it like 2000$+ or something, while I got Laptop brand new, same GPU with only lower tier CPU for 900$ xD

  2. To Minisforum: drop the damned ugly LEDs, drop the price accordingly, and then I’ll buy it.

    1. I know I’m in the minority when it comes to stuff like this, but on the other hand, if they let you put a (sufficiently monochrome) custom design on the panels, it might sell more. Like, if the panel is made of clear plastic covered in less clear plastic that can be blasted off with a laser there’s no reason it couldn’t have something with personal appeal that everyone else would totally give you weird looks for having on your computer.

        1. Doesn’t match my dim, RGB-lit gamer room from those ads for gaming things. :^)
          But really if they’re zapping the plates with a laser engraver to get the images seen in this article anyway, it doesn’t cost more to feed a different image file into the engraver.

  3. “The MINISFORUM HX200G is also one of the first mini PCs announced to feature support for PCIe Gen 5 solid state storage, and the little computer has two RGB backlit panels for decoration because… gaming, I guess.”

    That’s the first thing I’m going to figure out how to disconnect. The last thing I want on my mini room-heater is multiple RGB LED panels.

  4. How loud is this system? Especially when under full load. Could it reasonably be used in a studio, for creation, rather than gaming?

    1. According to the press material, 45db, though as some people on reddit point out, 45db of a high pitched whine is much worse than a 45db rumble so we also need to find out what kind of noise.
