The latest SZBOX mini PC is a compact desktop computer with a 45-watt AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX processor featuring 8 Zen 3+ processor cores and Radeon 680M integrated graphics featuring 12 RDNA 2 cores. It’s a chip that’s about two years old at this point, but it’s still not a bad choice for a mini PC looking to offer decent performance in a small package.

But the most unusual thing about the new SZBOX S69 is probably the package itself: this little computer features an unusual design with rounded corners, several colorful case options, and a 7-color LED light around the logo on top of the system. Overall it makes the system look more like an appliance or game console than a traditional PC.

It is a PC though, with two SODIMM slots for up to 64GB of total DDR5-4800 memory and two M.2 2280 slots for PCIe Gen 4 solid state storage.

At time of publication, prices start at $458 for a barebones model with a Ryzen 9 6900HX processor but no memory or storage when you buy the S69 from AliExpress. But if you’d prefer to buy a pre-configured system, prices start at $543 for a model with 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD.

The computer measures 147 x 117 x 53mm (5.8″ x 4.6″ x 2.1″) and features a plastic shell that comes in six different color options )black, orange, turquois, purple, titanium, and champagne). Inside the case there’s a copper heat sink and fan for cooling.

The S69’s ports include:

  • 1 x USB4 Type-C (40 Gbps data with USB-PD support and DisplayPort 1.4 Alt Mode)
  • 1 x USB Type-C
  • 2 x USB 3.2 Type-A
  • 2 x USB 2.0 Type-A
  • 1 x DisplayPort
  • 1 x HDMI
  • 1 x 3.5mm audio combo jack
  • 2 x 2.5 GbE RJ45 LAN
  • 1 x DC power input

There’s also a wireless card with support for WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2.

While the SZBOX S69 is the first mini PC in this style that I’ve seen, I wouldn’t be surprised if virtually identical models start to pop up at AliExpress in the future.

  1. That old CPU 6900HX has USB4 ! nice
    2 x 2.5 GbE RJ45 LAN -> excelent
    2 x M.2 good but 4 will be better 😉

  2. The 6900HX supports ECC RAM as long as the “platform supports” (which AFAIK means the mobo designers hasn’t tried to skimp on the couple of pennies that or would have cost them to put the extra traces on the PCB): https://www.amd.com/en/product/11541

    So, does this SZBOX mini PC supports it? They don’t mention whether or not anywhere that I can find…
