Everyone is teleconferencing right now, and working from home is becoming common. That's why Minisforum is introducing an unusual computer MC560 today, a mini PC comes with a 2.5K QHD HDR webcam. It also belongs to a new lineup called Mars.
MC560 is powered by Ryzen 5 5600U, a 6-core/12-thread chip that clocked at 2.30 (guaranteed base clock) to 4.2 GHz (turbocharged) with 16 MB 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 15 W.
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 64 GB 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.
