ASRock Industrial 4X4 box -7840U Mini-PC performance

Regarding AMD, the company introduced the 4X4 BOX-7735U, which is based on the Rembrandt Refresh, earlier this year A few quarters later, the 4X4 BOX-7040 series, which is based on the Phoenix architecture, was released

AMD’s most recent Zen 4 CPU cores and an RDNA3-based iGPU are added to the 4X4 BOX-7040 series, which expands upon the I/O and iGPU enhancements found in the 4X4 BOX-7735U

The base clock is lowered due to the lower power limit I/Os, other operating parameters, and the configuration of the iGPU stay the same

The 4X4 BOX-7840U is shipped by ASRock Industrial in “Normal Mode,” with AMD’s recommended TDP of 28W

Both home consumer and industrial settings have seen growth in this category, with the latter driving the B2B / industrial computing arms of many motherboard vendors to give such systems more attention

The Ryzen 7 7735U’s 8C/16T configuration is carried over to the Ryzen 7 7840U The CPU cores are now based on Zen 4, and the fabrication process has switched from TSMC’s 6nm FinFET to a 4nm 

There are just two models in the 4X4 BOX-7040 series from the company: one is based on the Ryzen 5 7640U and the other on the Ryzen 7 7840U

Nonetheless, in AMD systems, the two Type-C ports on the front panel support all USB4 features, including PCIe tunneling
