Simply NUC has made three Moonstone models available for pre-order, with prices starting at $699. The top-tier CBM3r9MS model, powered by the 45W AMD Ryzen 7940HS processor, is suitable for heavy-duty tasks like workstation applications and AAA games. In addition, for different budget ranges, the CBM3r7MS model with AMD Ryzen 7735U processor, and the CBM3r5MS model with AMD Ryzen 7535U processor are also available. Moonstone units are expected to start shipping in July.
With Radeon graphics at its core, Moonstone promises an unparalleled visual experience for a compact PC. It supports features like DirectX 12 Ultimate for ray tracing and AMD FidelityFX, an open source suite of image quality tools, both of which are essential to enhancing graphics-intensive workloads and gaming experiences. The device includes dual HDMI 2.1 ports and dual USB-C with Alt-DP ports, enabling sharp graphics on up to four 4K displays or a single 8K display.

Moonstone also provides abundant communication options. Connect peripherals seamlessly via the four USB-A ports, 2.5Gb LAN port, and dual USB-C ports. Furthermore, the system can be expanded with a replaceable cover or expansion board for additional I/O.
Under the hood, Moonstone uses AMD’s Zen 4 architecture, which provides 8 cores with 16 threads of computing power. This is made possible without excessive power consumption, thanks to a new power management design that allows unused cores to be put to sleep, thus preventing unnecessary power draw. Furthermore, Moonstone utilizes Simply NUC’s patented dual exhaust cooling solution, ensuring that the system remains cool and quiet, even under high-performance tasks.
