Asrock Launches Z390 DeskMini GTX Compact Gaming PC

Alex StevensDecember 4, 2018

ASRock, a brand that has been making motherboards since 2002, has recently announced the launch of their new Z390 DeskMini GTX series mini-PC.

The ASRock DeskMini PC crams up to an Intel 9th Gen Core i9-9900K and 32GB of DDR4 4,000MHz memory into a 2.7 liter case. The new DeskMini GTX series features USB 3.1 Gen2 Type-C and Type-A interface, achieving up to 10Gbps transfer rate. As with nearly everything else released this year, its built-in addressable RGB header allows connecting the LED strips to create unique lighting effects.

The motherboard is equipped with Intel’s latest Z390 chipset and a 5+1 phase power design. While this might sound anemic to users who are familiar with 8-phase power regulators in high-end motherboards, overclocking really isn’t an option in a PC this compact.

On the graphics front, the ASRock Mini PC packs a Nvidia GTX 1080 MXM board. The board is swappable by the user, which opens up potential upgrade channels. Though the chip itself is identical to full-sized variants, the MXM board in the ASRock Mini PC has less robust cooling, making it more prone to throttling.

ASRock also notes that the Z390 DeskMini has a USB 3.1 Gen2 Type-C and a Type-A font panel connectors. It also features a built-in RGB LED header with the ASRock Polychrome RGB software.  The new Z390 DeskMini GTX supports up to 5 storage devices with 3 Ultra M.2 PCIe Gen3 x4 slots and 2 SATA 6Gb in this 5.7” x 7.4” micro STX motherboard.
