Chuwi has finally make a decision and it seems that he is already clear as to what his most powerful mini PC will be to date, a model that was already planned long time ago and that we had known as Chuwi Gbox Pro, now receives the final name of Chuwi HiGame and that has a more conventional design. A product that will be financed through a crowdfunding campaign in Indiegogo, a method that seems to work very well for this brand where it has reaped several successes.
Processor, RAM and storage
The mini PC Chuwi HiGame will mount the interesting Intel Core i5-8305G processor that integrates a Radeon RX Vega M GL GPU combined with 4 GB of memory HBM2 memory which gives a graphics power superior to any GPU with conventional DDR4 RAM. In addition to this processor has installed by default 8 GB of DDR4 memory and a SSD M.2 128 GB, on the presentation data we can see the possibility to expand both RAM and M.2 disk but it is still unclear how many slots we will have available.
Connectivity and other features
At the level of connections this mini PC is quite ambitious and has a Thunderbolt 3 port which would give us a large bandwidth in transfer, two audio jack, five USB 3.0 ports, two HDMI 2.0 video outputs, two DisplayPort connectors 1.3, DC power connector and Gigabit Ethernet port. A model with similar characteristics to Intel Hades Canyon with a processor from the same family but with a better oriented design for ventilation. The box with 6.8 x 6.2 x 2.9 inches will undoubtedly have one or several active fans to cool this system.
Price and where to buy
- Chuwi HiGame for now has not launched its crowdfunding campaign in Indiegogo but soon it will be available, if we are interested we can sign up on its website and participate in the draw for a unit. We can wait calmly because the process will certainly go long for a product like that, seeing the specifications will not be cheap precisely.
