Gigabyte Metal Gear Plus ITX minicomputer has hit the market

Gigabyte has released Metal Gear Plus ITX, a new mini-PC powered by AMD Ryzen 8000G series desktop processors that deliver a significant performance boost over traditional mobile processor-based mini-PCs. This model is designed to fill the gap between the compact size of a mini-PC and the power of desktop computers.

Although the aluminum chassis makes it slightly larger than the smallest mini-PCs, it only takes up 3 liters of space. It comes with a high quality AORUS B650I ITX motherboard that allows you to use the latest DDR5 RAM. This means you can also upgrade its parts just like a large desktop computer. The mini PC comes with three processor options: Ryzen 5 8500G, Ryzen 5 8600G, and Ryzen 7 8700G.

An interesting choice by Gigabyte is not to use an internal power supply (PSU). Instead, the mini-PC uses an external power supply to help it manage the power requirements of its powerful 65-watt desktop processors.

Price and availability

Metal Gear Plus ITX is currently available in China in three versions. The base model comes with a Ryzen 5 8500G processor, 16 GB of RAM, and a 512 GB SSD, and costs 4,499 Chinese yuan, which is about $633. There are two other variants, with the highest specification including Ryzen 7 8700G, 16GB of RAM and a 1TB SSD priced at around 4,799 Chinese yuan (~US$831). Details on global availability and pricing for Gigabyte Metal Gear Plus ITX have not yet been announced.
