The Chinese manufacturer Chuwi is planning to create a mini-PC with an Intel Core i7-8709G chip. That chip contains an Intel quad-core processor and an AMD RX Vega-gpu. Only Intel used the chip so far, in its latest high-end Hades Canyon-NUC.
In an announcement on a website, the manufacturer said he would use the Core i7-8709G. The chip has a tdp of 100 watts and has the AMD RX Vega M GH-gpu with 24 compute units. On his website, Chuwi writes that versions come with i7 and i5. Intel has only released a 65-watt model from the i5, which also includes laptops and an RX Vega M GL-gpu with 20 compute units.
In the small PC, with dimensions of 173x158x73mm, there are 8GB of ram and a 256GB ssd. Both are easy to replace according to Chuwi. The small PC needs to deliver performance beyond what a Core i7-7700HQ laptop processor can offer in combination with an Nvidia GTX 1060 video card.
The HiGame PC gets a Thunderbolt 3 connection, two HDMI 2.0 ports, a displayport 1.3 connector and a gigabit network connection. Chuwi will deliver the device with Windows 10 Home. When the PC comes on the market and what it will cost, is not yet known.
