Minisforum has announced the MC560-A, a new mini PC that features a 2.5K QHD HDR webcam, beamforming microphones, dual speakers, and a Ryzen 5 5600U processor with Radeon RX Vega 7 integrated graphics. It is the first member of a new lineup called the Mars series.

MC560 is powered by Ryzen 5 5600U, a 6-core/12-thread chip that clocked at 2.3 (guaranteed base clock) to 4.2 GHz (turbocharged) with 16MB of level 3 cache. It integrates a Radeon RX Vega 7 integrated graphics card with 7 CUs at up to 1800 Mhz. Measuring 4.2 x 2.7 x 6.0 inches, this computer is super compact and has a lower TDP at 15W.

Adding a 2.5k working camera to a Mini PC design makes it a useful meeting assistant. Thanks to HDR optimization, MC560 has better picture quality than a laptop camera. The 93.8° wide angle display and 10° tilt change offers more flexibility in a virtual conference. In addition, the 180° dual beamforming microphone and dual speaker design create directional or noise-canceling vocals, with accurate speech capture and good delivery.

MC560 supports max 64GB of DDR4-3200 memory, an M.2 slot for PCIe 3.0 NVME SSDs storage, Wi-Fi 6e connectivity, and Bluetooth 5.2. A dual 4k @ 60 Hz display is possible via the HDMI and USB-C ports.

  • 1 x HDMI 2.0 (4K @ 60 Hz)
  • 1 x USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-C (Alt DP, Data Transfer, PD)
  • 2 x USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-A
  • 1 x RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet
  • 1 x 3.5 mm combo jack
  • 1 x DC 19V power input
  • 1 x Clear CMOS

Minisforum will provide pricing and release date information for the MC560-A at a later date.
