ASRock is preparing the next generation of DeskMini and DeskMeet desktop computers that will be equipped with AMD X600 and Intel B760 motherboards.
ASRock DeskMeet & DeskMini PCs with B760 and X600 Motherboards to support Intel Raptor Lake and AMD Ryzen 7000 CPUs
The ASRock DeskMeet and DeskMini PCs are designed as small form factor and barebone PCs that come in AMD and Intel flavors. ASRock gives you the option to get them in both barebones and pre-built configurations through their partners. These computers are currently available with AMD X300 and Intel B660 chipset-based motherboards that support the latest Ryzen 5000 and Intel 12th Gen CPU families.
Now, the listing in the EEC (Eurasian Economic Commission) confirms that ASRock is working on the next generation of its DeskMeet and DeskMini series which will include the following offerings:
- DESKMINI B760/B/BB/BOX
- DESKMINI X600/B/BB/BOX
- B760 office / B / BB / BOX
- X600 desktop computer / B / BB / BOX
As you can see in the list above, the ASRock DeskMeet and DeskMini computers will come in next-generation Intel and AMD flavors. Both Intel flavors will be available with the latest B760 chipset which will make its official debut on January 3rd and will include support for both 12th and 13th generation CPUs. The new PC will pair nicely with Intel 13th Gen CPU options launching on the same day as the B760 motherboards although we expect ASRock B760 DeskMini & DeskMeet PCs to be available in mid-2023.
AMD’s option from ASRock will come with a brand new X600 option. This will succeed the X300 series chipset and appears to be a completely new chipset option in the AMD 600 series lineup. We are aware of three chipsets so far, two of which have already been launched (X670(E) / B650(E). There is also an A620 chipset being launched in 1H 2023 and should perfectly align mainstream Ryzen Non-X CPU options with a Zen 4 architecture. Once again, we expect the AMD X600 DeskMeet and DeskMini to launch in the first half of 2023.
One must remember that while ASRock DeskMeet computers feature support for higher wattage CPUs, the DeskMini series is limited to only 65W options. Users should keep this in mind when purchasing these computers. The DeskMini also does not feature any support for discrete graphics cards. Expect more information at CES 2023 on these new PC options.
