Minisforum has just released the UM733 Venus Series Mini PC, the first to support the AMD Ryzen 7000 CPU, and the Ryzen 7 7735HS. AMD recently introduced its new Ryzen 7000 Mobility CPU range, and Minisforum is now taking pre-orders for its latest Venus UM733 Mini PC.
The Mini PC is a somewhat improved version of the UM690 and the AMD Ryzen 7 7735HS CPU, which is part of the Rembrandt-R (Refresh) family, powers the Minisforum UM733. As a result, the CPU is extremely comparable to the Ryzen 9 6900HX that we received with our UM690 Mini PC.
The AMD Ryzen 7 7735HS CPU has eight cores, sixteen threads, sixteen megabytes of L3 cache, and four megabytes of L2 cache. The CPU uses a 6nm fabrication node and is based on the Zen 3+ core architecture. It operates at 3.2 GHz base frequency and 4.75 GHz boost frequency, which is significantly lower than the Ryzen 9 6900HS. The CPU has a TDP of 35-45W and a Radeon 680M iGPU with 12 Compute Units that runs at 2200 MHz, which is 200 MHz slower than the 6900HS.
The Minisforum UM733’s I/O is rock strong, with two HDMI ports, a USB4 port, one USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C port, and four USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A ports.
A 2.5G Ethernet LAN port, a CMOS switch, and a 3.5 mm combo jack are also included. The power is supplied through the DC 19V adaptor. In terms of speed, the new AMD Ryzen 7735HS CPU will provide excellent single and multi-threaded performance, while the Radeon 680M GPU is more than capable of running practically all of today’s titles at a fair frame rate with reasonable quality settings.
The Minisforum UM733 Mini PC’s other characteristics are uncomplicated, with a metal chassis that contains a 120-fin heatsink with heat pipes and an active cooling fan to keep the PC cool. The UM733 is available as a barebone or with a 16 GB DDR5-4800+512 GB SSD combination. There is no information on pricing yet, but it should cost approximately $550-$700 US, same to the UM690.
