ASUS has announced another ExpertCenter machine, days after introducing a modular desktop PC. Not only is ExpertCenter PN53 another product in ExpertCenter, but it is also a member of its mini PC series. Although the machine is relatively small, it should pack a punch regardless of the configuration chosen.
In addition, ASUS equips its new mini-PC with two M.2 2280 slots that support PCIe Gen4 NVMe drives, a 2.5-inch drive bay and two SODIMM slots that can handle 32 GB of DDR5-4800 RAM. Incidentally, all configurations are available with WiFi 6 or WiFi 6E connectivity and feature the following ports:
- 1x 3.5 mm audio jack
- 1x Configurable Port (COM/DisplayPort 1.4/HDMI 2.1/VGA)
- 1x Ethernet (2.5 Gbit)
- 2x HDMI 2.1
- 5x USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-A
- 1x USB 4 Type-C (DisplayPort 1.4/USB Power Delivery)
- 1x USB 4 Type-C (DisplayPort 1.4)
For some reason, ASUS hasn’t confirmed the pricing details yet. However, the company provided more details about the mini-PC on its website.
