MINISFORUM, a strong player in the prebuilt SFF market, has just unveiled another uSFF PC, the Venus EliteMini UM590. Featuring the Ryzen 9 5900HX Processor, this is sure to be a strong contender for performance per litre.
This particular processor is an 8 core, 16 thread Zen 3 core, with a boost clock of up to 4.6GHz. GPU-wise, this chip also offers 8CUs of the Radeon 8 Architecture.

RJ45 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet Port ×1
USB Type-A ×4 (USB3.2 Gen2 ×2,USB2.0 ×2)
USB 3.2 Type-C ×1 (support DP1.4,4K@60Hz)
USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C ×1 (Data Only, In Front)
Clear CMOS ×1
3.5 mm Audio Jack ×1

Starting at US$459 as a barebones, this will be a pricey little unit though. A moderate spec of 16GB RAM and a 512GB SSD raises the price to US$569 plus shipping. Performance density is still a pricey prospect, alas.
As an aside, we LOVE the vent grille in the second and fourth images below!
