Curious mini PC that we find in AliExpress, since this time it uses a series of 8th Gen Intel processors that integrate AMD graphics and that has been little used at the time, but that we saw in one of our reviews.
These are Kaby Lake G processors, already discontinued, aimed at laptops and the like with Radeon RX Vega M GL graphics with 4 GB of integrated HBM2 memory and a 65 W TDP. A very curious configuration at the time and unthinkable today, And that is naturally surpassed by AMD’s Ryzen. Its expansion capabilities with 2 memory slots, two M.2 NVMe ports and its 4 video ports are positive.

This mini PC is available in two versions, one with an Intel Core i7-8705G processor, a Quad Core with 8 threads capable of reaching 4.10 Ghz, an AMD Radeon RX Vega M GL GPU with 20EU with a maximum speed of 1,011 Mhz and integrated HD Intel 630 graphics at 1.1 Ghz maximum.
