Asus unveils a NUC competitor with AMD Ryzen and Radeon hardware inside

Asus is launching a line of miniature PCs that are small enough to fit in the palm of your hand (see image above), but powerful enough to handle some lightweight gaming.

The new Mini PC PN50 series is built around AMD’s Ryzen 4000 mobile processors, which is what makes them so compelling. The Ryzen 4000 mobile series is based on AMD’s latest generation Zen 2 architecture (same as found within its Ryzen 3000 desktop CPUs), with onboard graphics based on Vega.

Ryzen 4000 chips are basically APUs (accelerated processing units), a term AMD doesn’t use anymore.
