Website VideoCardz was sent information from Minisforum that showed the "internal performance evaluations of the Ryzen 7 5700G in the X500 system in comparison to the already released HX90 MiniPC which features Ryzen 9 5900HX CPU."
The Ryzen 9 5900HX CPU is the flagship mobile model that follows the FP6 socket which has minimal differences to the default TDP and clock speed. The information provided to VideoCardz was screenshots of performance and various tests along with some information about the devices prior to release. Unfortunately, there are still no complete specifications for the system except for what could be found on public forums and databases. It is speculated that the two systems are utilizing sixteen gigabytes DDR4-3200 memory modules.
The AMD Ryzen 7 5700G appears to have a TDP range that is higher than the 5900HX model. The configurable TDP starts at 45 watts and reaches as high as 65 watts. The Ryzen 9 5900HX begins at 35 watts and reaches 54 watts. This information about the Ryzen 9 5900HX shows that the CPU has the ability for overclocking. It is also to be assumed that the CPU is "higher-binned" than other Cezanne mobile CPUs, for example, the Ryzen 7 5800H.

The AMD Ryzen 7 5700G showcases a higher clock base of 500 MHz and a turbo boost of 4.6 GHz, which is also seen on the Ryzen 9 5900HX. However, the 5900HX is more efficient in graphical power due to the 2.1 GHz clock maximum which happens to be above 100 MHz higher than the 5700G model.
When it comes to workload power, the 5700G performs slightly better than the 5900HX model, including graphical workloads. It is pointed out by VideoCardz that what is more important is the form factor and not necessarily the power of the MiniPC's APU chip.
