MINISFORUM has launched the EliteMini UM780 XTX, a compact featuring an AMD Ryzen 7 7840HS processor pushed to 70 watts, a notable increase from its standard 35-54 watt operation. Priced at a promotional rate of $479 for the base model and $629 for a version with 32GB of RAM and a 1TB SSD, the listed prices represent a launch promotion with a standard starting price of $579.

Under the hood, the UM780 XTX boasts two SODIMM slots supporting up to 96GB of DDR5-5600 memory and two M.2 2280 slots for PCIe 4.0 solid-state drives. It includes an M.2 2230 wireless card supporting WiFi 6E and Bluetooth 5. The magnetic top cover, removable for easy access, features an RGB light panel that can be customized or disabled through BIOS settings.

Connectivity options include 1 x HDMI 2.1, 1 x DisplayPort 1.4, 2 x USB4 (with DisplayPort Alt Mode and USB Power Delivery), 1 x Oculink, 2 x 2.5 GbE Ethernet, 4 x USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A, and 1 x 3.5mm audio. Notably, the two USB4 ports support 40 Gbps data transfer speeds, while the Oculink port can handle speeds up to 63 Gbps.

Additional features comprise an enhanced cooling system with liquid metal applied to the CPU, active cooling via a fan, and a TDP boost for the AMD processor. The UM780 XTX supports two power modes: a Balanced mode with a TDP configured to a maximum of 54 watts and a Performance mode allowing operation at up to 70 watts for improved sustained performance.
