ASUS PN50 – The World’s First AMD Ryzen 4000U Mini PC

AMD Ryzen 4000-U Series family was announced in January with the 15W processors targetting ultra-thin laptops. It’s already been found in laptops and the first reviews of Acer Swift 3 were positive with the laptop being slim, fast, and offering long battery life.

But I had yet to see an AMD Ryzen 4000U mini PC until today, with ASUS PN50 mini PC shipping with a choice of five processors from AMD Ryzen 3 4300U to Ryzen 7 4800U, and a design identical to the company’s PN60 mini PC powered by Intel Kaby Lake Refresh processors.

ASUS PN50 specifications:

  • SoC (one or the other)
    • AMD Ryzen 7 4800U 8C/16T processor up to 1.8 / 4.2 GHz with 8-core
      Radeon Graphics; 12MB L2/L3 cache
    • AMD Ryzen 7 4700U 8C/8T processor up to 2.0 / 4.1 GHz with 7-core
      Radeon Graphics; 12MB L2/L3 cache

      Radeon Graphics; 11MB L2/L3 cache
    • AMD Ryzen 3 4300U 4C/4T processor up to 2.7 / 3.7 GHz with 5-core

Since this is a barebone mini PC, no operating system is specified, but it’s clear Windows 10 will work after drivers installation, while Linux distributions may have to be tested first.
