We discovered on AliExpress the new compact SZBOX NBook Ultra laptop, one of the first of its kind to mount AMD Ryzen 8000 and we hope to see it soon on a mini PC.
SZBOX NBook Ultra with Ryzen R7 8845HS Processor
As we have already seen, this AMD Ryzen 8000 maintains the characteristics of the 7000 series, but includes an NPU core for AI. In this laptop we find the powerful AMD Ryzen R7 8845HS with eight cores, sixteen threads and one NPU.
This computer stands out for its aluminum design with a lid that opens up to 180º. On the front it mounts a 16″ IPS 2.5K touch screen with no less than 165 Hz.
In addition, it has two USB-C 3.2 connectors with support for 100W PD charging and video output. A laptop with quite small dimensions for the screen it offers.
