Minisforum R3GAF: Unleash the Power of RX 7600M XT on Your Mini PC or Handheld

Mini PCs and handheld gaming devices are awesome, but let's face it, their integrated graphics can sometimes leave you wanting more. Enter the Minisforum R3GAF, a powerful new external GPU (eGPU) that injects your system with the graphical muscle of a Radeon RX 7600M XT. And the best part? It uses OCuLink for a lightning-fast connection that leaves Thunderbolt 4 in the dust!

Why OCuLink Matters

Most mini PCs and handhelds don't have the thermal or power headroom for dedicated graphics cards. That's where eGPUs come in, and the R3GAF leverages the speed of OCuLink to deliver the best possible performance. With speeds up to 64 GT/s, it's significantly faster than Thunderbolt 4, meaning you'll actually experience the full potential of that RX 7600M XT.

RX 7600M XT: A Mobile Gaming Beast

This isn't just any mobile GPU – the RX 7600M XT is based on AMD's powerful RDNA 3 architecture. With 12 CUs and a healthy 8GB of GDDR6 memory, it goes toe-to-toe with NVIDIA's RTX 4070 Laptop GPU, delivering impressive performance in games and creative applications.

More Than Just Graphics

The R3GAF is also a versatile connectivity hub:

  • Triple Display Output: With two DisplayPort 1.4 ports and an HDMI 2.1 port, you can connect up to three external displays for an immersive gaming experience or a productivity powerhouse.
  • USB Hub: Three USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports and a Type-C port let you easily connect all your peripherals.

Price and Availability

Minisforum hasn't released official pricing yet, but based on similarly specced eGPUs on the market (like the ONEXPLAYER eGPU at around $750), we expect the R3GAF to be competitively priced.

Want Even More Power?

If you're chasing absolute top-tier performance and have your own desktop GPU, Minisforum's DEG1 graphics dock with OCuLink support might be a better fit. It can handle behemoths like the RTX 4090!

The Future of Mobile Gaming and Productivity

The Minisforum R3GAF is a game-changer for anyone who wants to supercharge their mini PC or handheld. With the power of the RX 7600M XT and the speed of OCuLink, you can finally experience desktop-class graphics on the go.
