Akasa Announces Newton A50 Fanless NUC Case for ASUS PN50/PN51 Motherboards

Akasa, have released the latest model of their small form factor fanless cases, introducing the Newton A50! The newest Newton is ultra-compact, with dimensions of just 169 x 115.5 x 68.5 mm (1.3L). The case supports ASUS PN50 and PN51 motherboards, which are equipped with the latest Ryzen 4000 mobile processors and 5000 mobile processors (respectively) for the best performance in its size category.

The small but mighty design makes the case perfect for small areas, or minimalist desktop setups. The sleek, futuristic panels combined with this ultra-compact shape means the case can be used in a wide range of ways; either a discreet addition to a desk, for smaller desktop setups, or hidden away for a clean, truly silent aesthetic. To fully take advantage of the silence, the use of SSDs is essential for the noiseless experience - the cases have enough space for one M.2 SSD and one 2.5" SSD/HDD.
Akasa's Newton A50's shadowy brushed aluminium effect is minimalist and keeps a low profile, providing excellent cooling for the PN50/PN51 motherboards; these can be installed quickly and easily, and operational within half an hour.

The boards can also support one 8K or four 4K displays, which allows the system to be used for digital signage and set-ups with multiple displays The Newton A50 is rated for up to a 25 W TDP, with a solid aluminium core contacting the major key hot zones on the AMD motherboard - specifically the APU on the processor chip, and the motherboard's VRMs.

Don't get me wrong, I love these passive cases.
However, this kind of defeats the advantage of the PN50/PN51 and puts the footprint in line with an mITX passive system.
