New mini PC by the name of Partaker B27 that we found on AliExpress. A sober computer that has an 8th Gen Intel processor that integrates AMD Radeon RX Vega graphics.
A range of processors that we saw in one of our reviews a while ago and that has not been widely used. These Kaby Lake G processors, already discontinued, have a powerful Radeon RX Vega M GL GPU that integrates 4 GB HBM2 dedicated RAM and has a TDP of 65 W. A very peculiar configuration that, thanks to its integrated RAM, gets high performance from the GPU. This mini PC has good expansion options with two memory slots, two M.2 NVMe ports and its 4 video output ports.
This mini PC is available in two configurations, 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 graphics HD Intel 630 at 1.1 Ghz max.
The other version includes an Intel Core i5-8305G, a Quad Core with 8 threads capable of reaching 3.80 Ghz and an AMD Radeon RX Vega M GL GPU with 20EU with a maximum speed of 1,11 Mhz. The graphics repeat the configuration of the i7 with an AMD Radeon RX Vega M GL GPU with 20EU and integrated HD Intel 630 graphics at 1 Ghz.
For memory, the Partaker B27 have two SO-DIMM DDR4-2400 modules where we can mount up to 64 GB of RAM and for storage we find 2 M.2 NVMe ports, one of them compatible M.2 SATA3.
The barebone version does not include Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, but we do have a specific M.2 slot for a card. Regarding connectivity, we see on the perimeter of its box 2 3.5 mm audio jacks, 4 USB 3.0 ports, 4 USB 2.0, a USB Type-C, SD card reader, 2 Gigabit network ports and 2 video outputs. DisplayPort 1.4 and 2 other HDMI 2.0 with support for up to 4K@60fps resolutions.
