Minisforum NAG6 Melds i9-12900H and RX 6600M in 2.7-Liter Case

Posted on

Minisforum has revealed a new high-end mini-gaming PC destined to join its Neptune series. Dubbed the Minisforum NAG6 mini PC, the design packs an Intel Core i9-12900H and AMD Radeon RX 6600M into a very compact 2.7-liter chassis. At the same showcase event in Japan, PC Watch mentions that the Hong Kong-based mini PCs maker also updated its HX90G with a newer gen AMD Ryzen ‘Rembrandt’ processor.

The source publication says that the Minisforum NAG6 is still being developed, so the specifications and design shared may change before the release date. However, the specs we know at this stage already make the design an appealing pre-built or barebones mini PC choice – as long as the price is right

The new Minisforum NAG6 looks in some ways like the established HX90G. The HX90G is a member of the Neptune series and was announced in May before going up for sale in September. The new NAG6 is also shown standing on a pedestal mount and appears to be almost the same size (2.7 liters) which means it might also be 8 x 8 x 2.5 inches (without a stand). However, there are some notable differences in this Intel-powered design, like the more powerful array of fans (three rather than two) and larger heatsink. The case looks extensively vented to help with cooling.

Some may comment on the resemblance between the Minisforum NAG6 and the new Intel NUC 13 Extreme ‘Raptor Canyon‘. However, Intel’s compact PC is a much larger (less NUC-like) dual-chamber 13.9-liter design and offers the flexibility of desktop parts like socketed CPUs and discrete GPUs. Minisforum users have similarly limited upgrade options to laptop users, which is fair considering the 2.7-liter size and the laptop parts used.
