Minisforum makes some amazing mini PCs, and they don’t just look good, they offer a lot of performance for the price. AtomMan, Minisforum’s new high-end brand, offers G (gaming) and X (eXploration/AI) systems, and the latest product from this label is GT Pt, the world’s first AMD Advantage certified A+A Mini PC.

It comes powered by an AMD Ryzen 9 7945HX Zen 4 processor with 16 cores and 32 threads, backed by a Radeon RX 7600M XT GPU with 8GB of GDDR6 graphics memory.

The G7 Pt comes with up to 96GB of DDR5 5200MHz dual-channel memory and is fitted with an M.2 2280 PCIe5.0 SSD, supplemented by an M.2 2280 PCIe4.0 SSD expansion slot.

Ports galore

Although it’s part of the gaming sub-brand (and looks it with its arty dual RGB backlighting panels), the G7 Pt is perfect for pros and creatives. The device features one USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-A Port on the front, three USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-A Ports at the back, one data-only USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C Port on the front, and another USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C Port at the back.

The HDMI 2.1, DisplayPort 2.0, and USB-C ports allow it to drive three 4K displays simultaneously. There’s a RJ45 2.5G Ethernet port and it supports Wi-Fi 7.

If you're worried about it potentially overheating, AtomMan's Cold Wave Ultra system achieves a maximum of 205W of cooling thanks to a double-sided four fan design, dual liquid gold heat dissipation, and enhanced DDR/SSD active heatsinks.

There’s no word on pricing yet, but the AtomMan X7 Ti (part of the eXploration/AI brand) has just gone on sale priced at $669 for the barebones  version (down from the usual price of $829), so you can expect the G7 Pt to be priced similarly.
