Chinese Chuwi are not just the tablet/laptop makers and they have been dabbling in the past into the world of mini PC world too. And encouraged by their previous success on the crowdfuding platform Indiegogo, they will be launching a new campaign there by the end of April. And this time it looks pretty promising with a stacked mini gaming PC Chuwi HiGame.
There will be not much of a compromise and this mini PC will be powerful enough to fully replace your traditional desktop computer. And with ultra compact dimensions (just 173*158*73mm). It will be running the 8th-Gen Intel Kaby Lake-G platform processor Intel Core i5-8305G paired with AMD Radeon RX Vega M graphic card with 4 GB RAM. The PC will have 8 GB DDR4 RAM and 128 GB M.2 SSD storage at their disposal for starters, but you can easily upgrade it via two more DDR4 SO-DIMM sockets, one more M.2 PCIe SSD slot and one 2.5″ SATA HDD bay.
The ports will be plentiful too with a Thunderbolt 3, five USB 3.0 ports, gigabit LAN, two HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort for good measure. Chuwi Hi Game can support 4K@60Hz Ultra HD encode/decode and the level of performance is enough for the VR/MR headsets or multiple display solutions (up to 6 monitors). Throw in the Bluetooth 4.2 and dual band 802.11a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi and you have more or less a perfect computer already assembled.
We shall see how much it will cost, because in the end that’s always the decisive factor for most customers. There is already a giveaway event running on the Chuwi’s website and you can also subscribe for the newsletter to get the super early bird price info about the Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign.
