About this deal

Gamers who are looking for a light gaming machine will love this device, with the power of the Ryzen 9 chip offering a buttery smooth experience.

You have no choice but to like the color scheme from a purely visual point of view because there aren't any other color combinations offered. The market is simply too small for that. The Minisforum EliteMini HX90 doesn't look that bad in reality, though. Overall, we cannot discover any negative points of criticism in the looks and workmanship. The omission of piano lacquer, which some competitors use, prevents visibility of any micro scratches. Also on the gaming front the performance in terms of FPS of the AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX is good. 4K Display Our review sample is equipped with 16 GB of RAM and a 512 GB SSD. The device also comes with Windows 10 Professional, unless it is the barebone version. Everything is installed in a 195 x 190 x 60 mm compact case, which makes the Minisforum EliteMini HX90 slightly bigger than the MinisForum EliteMini HM90. Intel's NUC 10 is much more compact in terms of dimensions. Need more storage? Have no fear, as the HX90 also supports not one, but TWO2.5 inchHDDs/SSDs of your choice with its built-in SATA III drive bays. With the Wi-Fi 6 card and 2500Mbps LAN networking, the HX90 is the perfect home game streaming console. Set this tiny machine next to your TV, connect controllers via Bluetooth and game away! Pricing and ConclusionNeed more storage? Have no fear, as the HX90 also supports not one, but TWO 2.5 inch HDDs/SSDs of your choice with its built-in SATA III drive bays. How about screens? The HX90, despite its small size, comes as equipped as a full office computer . Capable of supporting up to four monitors simultaneously at up to 4K@60Hz (2x DisplayPort, 2x HDMI 2.0). Game, chat, binge and surf all at once with the HX90. A single fan takes care of the temperature in it, but between the heat sink and the CPU's IHS there is no thermal paste, but liquid metal, which ensures even better heat transfer. Hence, the noise level is only about 30 dB under full load, which is not a bad result for a 2.65-kg structure enclosed in a 195 x 190 x 60 mm housing. Connectivity

Except for the barebones version, all versions come with Windows 11 pre-installed. The barebones version does not include RAM and SSD; therefore, it does not have pre-installed Windows 11. Compared to the AMD Ryzen 7 5700G, the Ryzen 9 5900HX shows only a slight performance difference. Both processors are almost identical. Nevertheless, the AM4-based processor can use up to 87 W for a short time, which makes the performance advantage clear. The Minisforum Neptune Series HX90G is an attractive compact gaming device for uncompromising Full HD gaming.

Connectivity

The hardware brands may vary from batch to batch. Please rest assured that they all meet Minisforum's standards and are all covered by the warranty.

In terms of noise, in the video we had the unit held up to the microphone so you can hear it. At idle and lower power it is quiet, bot silent. At 100W+ it gets quite a bit louder.” The MinisForum HX90 is a high-performance mini PC that combines a futuristic, practical design and high performance into a sleek, miniature form factor.

Communciation

Minisforum is a Chinese system builder that specializes in ultra-compact mini PCs. We recently had the chance to take a look at the Minisforum EliteMini HM90 and were positively impressed. Now the manufacturer has sent us the EliteMini HX90, the current flagship of its portfolio. The EliteMini HX90 is aimed at a different target group and should also appeal to gamers. We will find out if this is true when we take a closer look at the gaming performance. Nevertheless, other users should not feel completely left out because the installed AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX offers excellent performance that is also very well received in everyday use. Services like XBOX Cloud Gaming, Nvidia GeForce Now and Google Stadia allow PC gamers to stream their favorite games from the internet – just like with movie streaming with services like Netflix.
