Today, ASRock has launched its new Ryzen-based Jupiter X300 Mini PC. The Taiwanese manufacturer's X300 DeskMini is a popular barebone mini-PC lineup based on AMD's X300 mini-ITX chipset. The new Jupiter X300 appears to be a smaller one-liter version of the DeskMini, and measures 178mm long, 178mm wide, and 34mm high.
Like on the DeskMini, the Jupiter supports 35/65W Ryzen 4000 Renoir APUs with non-ECC SODIMMs capable of running up to 3200MHz speeds and capacity of up to 64GB, while older Ryzen 3000 (Picasso) and Ryzen 2000 (Raven Ridge) series APUs support 2933MHz memory clocks. These Mini PCs do not have the option for adding a dedicated GPU, so an APU is crucial for display output. Speaking of which, the Jupiter X300 comes with three display outputs, one each being an HDMI, a DisplayPort, and a D-Sub(VGA port). They are capable of running up to three monitors at a time.
For storage, it has an Ultra M.2 2280 slot, which is based on PCIe 3.0, as PCIe Gen 4 is exclusive to 500-series AM4 chipsets. A 2.5" SATA drive bay is also present.
The USB connectivity of the Jupiter X300 is fairly expansive with two USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-C and two USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-A ports on the front, as well as two other USB 3.2 Gen1 and two USB 2.0 slots on the back, a total of eight USB ports.
For network connectivity, an RJ45 Gigabit LAN port is present, and for wireless connections, there's also an M.2 Type 2230 Key-E slot. Keeping enterprise security in mind, ASRock has added the option for DASH LAN for secure remote accessibility and TPM 2.0 protocols.
The Jupiter X300 is powered by a 90W/19V adapter which is 30 watts lower than the DeskMini counterpart. Pricing of the Jupiter hasn't been stated.
