ASRock new series of 4×4 BOX5000 mini-PCs now powered by AMD Zen 3 Ryzen 5000 processors

Apr 15, 2022 — by Giorgio Mendoza 903 views

ASROCK Industrial has recently unveiled three 4X4 BOX-5000 mini PCs(4X4 BOX-5800U, 4X4 BOX-5600U, and 4X4 BOX-5400U) equipped with AMD Zen 3 Ryzen 5000 U-series processors. By using AMD’s Zen 3 architecture, ASRock plans to capture business and home applications such as Kiosks, digital signage and other remote access applications.

ASRock’s newest mini-PCs incorporate AMD’s Ryzen 7 5800U, Ryzen 5 5600U, and Ryzen 3 5400U processors which feature up to 8 cores/16 threads to enhance computing performance. The newest architecture also features an improved AMD Radeon Graphics controller to increase the visual experience. According to ASRock, the mini-PCs integrated with Zen 3 processors achieve up to 17% single-thread and multi-thread performance compared to the previous Zen 2 processor architecture.

These mini PCs are enabled to support quad displays outputs and dual 2.5 Gigabit ethernet ports. The storage support is flexible since it provides access to one M.2 key M SSD as well as SATA 3.0 storage. The wireless interface consists of Wi-Fi 6E (supports 6GHz band) and Bluetooth 5.2 through M.2 module. Also, there are three USB ports available (2x USB 2.0, 1x USB 3.2) and one audio jack on the front panel.
