ASRock’s upgradeable desktop Mini Max SFF PC makes room for 16-core AMD CPU and discrete GPU


Modern high-performance small form factor (SFF) PCs have many indisputable advantages: despite their compact size, they still provide a good level of performance. However, for audiophiles, they have a big disadvantage: they are generally not scalable or upgradeable. ASRock decided to resolve this limitation with its DeskMini Max 10-liter concept PC.

ASRock’s DeskMini Max It is a custom-designed PC, powered by AMD’s Ryzen processor, with up to 16 cores and up to 105W TDP (all available now) or an APU with built-in graphics. The system is equipped with a Mini-ITX motherboard, which can be equipped with up to 128 GB of DDR4 memory, discrete graphics (up to 20 cm or 7.87 inches), M.2 SSD, and all the connection technologies you need. Look forward to modern PCs.

Unlike most SFF desktops, ASRock’s DeskMini Max provides a certain degree of freedom in configuration. Buyers or system integrators who purchase DeskMini Max as a barebones kit can install various storage devices, add-on cards, and configure high-end CPUs or low-power APUs for the system. ASRock stated that, like the previous generation of DeskMinis, the Max version is easy to use and can assemble a system in “a few minutes”. As for the size, the PC size is 168 (W) x 220.8 (D) x 268 (H).
