Thanks to liquid metal and a smart fan in thermal design, MINISFORUM's UM690 can run at low noise even at full speed. UM690 supports a total of up to 64GB dual-channel DDR5-4800MHz memory, also different types of storage expansions—1×M.2 2280 PCIe 4.0 SSD and 1×2.5 inch SATA HDD Slot (SATA 3.0 6.0Gb/s 7mm).

The USB4 port on MINISFORUM UM690 supports a maximum transfer speed of 40 Gbps and Alt Mode for Display Port and Thunderbolt. It also allows users to connect a discrete graphics card with a docking station to the machine.

With one USB4 port and two HDMI ports, UM590 can connect to three monitors simultaneously with a maximum resolution of two 4K@60Hz and one 8K@60Hz (via USB4). The MINISFORUM UM690 Barebone kit is listed for $499 US which is $50 US higher than the AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX option but packs more punch in terms of performance and efficiency. The GPU side also gets a huge upgrade to the RDNA 2 graphics core versus the Vega iGPU featured on the older Cezanne model.
