This paper investigates the maximal achievable rate for a given average error probability and blocklength for the reconfigurable intelligent surface (RIS) assisted multiple-input and multiple-output (MIMO) system. The result consists of a finite blocklength channel coding achievability bound and a converse bound based on the Berry-Esseen theorem, the Mellin transform and the mutual information. Numerical evaluation shows fast speed of convergence to the maximal achievable rate as the blocklength increases and also proves that the channel variance is a sound measurement of the backoff from the maximal achievable rate due to finite blocklength.
