After 2 successful crowdfunding campaigns, Chuwi again went to Indiegogo this time with a mini HiGame PCthe launch time is set at 6:00 am, June 14th PT and 1:00 pm, June 14th UTC. The computer is built on the platform of Intel Kaby Lake-G and went to fight for the hearts of gamers and content creators, and on the first day, the company collected the right amount for a successful start. Take a closer look at what it can do.
Chuwi HiGame is available in two versions, one with the Intel Core i5-8305G processors, and a much more attractive model that offers the Intel Core i7-8709G, a processor that includes even more powerful Radeon RX Vega M graphics that makes you win many points for those users who think seriously about playing or professional use.
The Intel Core i5-8305G is a processor consisting of 4 cores and 8 threads of processing at a Base / Turbo frequency of 2.80 / 3.80 GHz with 6 MB of cache, integrated graphics Intel HD Graphics 630 @ 1.00 GHz for office use, and nothing less than dedicated graphics AMD Radeon RX Vega M GL with with 1280 Stream Processors at a base / turbo frequency @ 931/1011 MHz with a performance of up to 2.6 TFLOPs and the backup of 4 GB of HBM2 memory and a memory interface of 1024 bits that results in a bandwidth of 179.2 GB / s. In terms of performance, according to Intel, it is up to 40 percent faster than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 with 4 GB of GDDR5 memory.
The Intel Core i7-8709G sees how those 4 cores and 8 threads reach a Base / Turbo frequency of 3.10 / 4.10 GHz with 8 MB of cache, but the biggest difference is in the dedicated graphics, some very powerful AMD Radeon RX Vega M GH equipped with 1536 Stream Processors @ 1063/1190 MHz with 4GB of HBM2 memory that yields a bandwidth of 204.8 GB / s and a throughput of up to 3.7 TFLOP , which allows it to be up to 13 percent faster than a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 Max-Q of 6 GB GDDR5 together with a Core i7-7700HQ.
These processors are attached to 8 GB of DDR4 @ 2400 MHz RAM in SO-DIMM format (expandable to 16 GB) along with 128/256 GB SSD storage (Core i5 / Core i7). In case you want to expand the capacity, we have access to a 2.5 “bay for an HDD / SSD or replace the SSD that it incorporates in port M.2 2280.
