Deskmini Max : a mini ASRock PC that can be used as a workstation

Deskmini Max : a mini ASRock PC that can be used as a workstation

No kidding, big PCs are good, there is space, you can install what you want, but they are still bulky and heavy. Fortunately, there are small format machines like the Deskmini Max from ASRock. A small machine of 10l volume that can embark a workstation configuration!

Deskmini Max: small PC, but big capacities!

ASRock Deskmini MaxThis new model has very compact dimensions. Indeed, it measures 168 (W) x 220,8 (D) x 268 (H) mm, that is to say a volume of 10l. In spite of this compactness, we can enjoy the configuration. Indeed, the motherboard, a reference in ITX format with four memory slots (are we in the presence of an E-ITX card?) will be able to accommodate a Ryzen CPU. We are talking about Ryzen 2000, 3000, 4000 and 5000 CPUs and APUs. However, there will be a small restriction on their TDP: 105W maximum.

As we said, the motherboard is somewhat singular since it embeds four memory slots. This proprietary reference will be able to take up to 128 GB of DDR4 U-DIMM of ECC and non-ECC type. As for the chipset, we are talking about an AMD X300.

The cooling part will be the most limited aspect of this machine. With the power supply (500W 80+ Bronze certified) taking place above the CPU… Inevitably, the impact is negative. You should not be greedy on the height of the heatsink, top flow format obliged… Unless you turn to a 120mm AIO, which is rather recommended.

In the same vein, the graphics card cannot be too long, since it is 20 cm long. However, via references intended for ITX PCs, one can indulge oneself.

ASRock Deskmini MaxWe end quickly with the storage aspect which includes two 2.5″ slots and a third in M.2. Of course, the storage can be configured in RAID mode. Let’s not forget to mention the possibility of integrating an optical drive via a 5.25″ slot. This slot can be used to integrate a 3.5″ HDD if necessary, provided that the AIO is not used. In short, we find a certain modularity at this level.

Unfortunately, ASRock has not yet mentioned the price or the launch date of this very interesting machine.
