At the end of March, Xiaomi announced its first portable PC optimized for video games. Today, May 15, Xiaomi Mi Gaming equipped with a 7th-generation i5 processor officially available for sale in China to the price of 5999 yuan and that’s about $942. The higher version, with onboard Intel Core i7, is already on the market since last April 13th with a price of 8999 yuan, which is about $1432.
Virtually all products Xiaomi always wring the eye at the price without forgetting the quality. The combination of two factors that have made the brand famous in different sectors. The same is also true of Mi Gaming which – in both versions – shows an interesting technical data sheet inside a, particularly well-built body. The variant that will be on the market now in China has on board:
The Xiaomi Gaming Laptop 1050Ti version features a 15.6-inch full-screen Full HD screen with a screen aspect ratio of 81%. Unfortunately, this notebook does not include Intel’s eighth-generation chips. Instead, it features a seventh generation Intel Core i5-73000HQ processor. This processor is paired with 8GB of DDR4 RAM, a 128 GB solid state drive, a 1TB mechanical hard drive, and a GeForce GTX 1050Ti graphics card. From my own experience, I know that this card, beyond the games, can also handle video editing in 4K.
One of the greatest successes is the cooling system. The area of heat dissipation increased by 50%. Thanks to the special TORNADO button, you can easily switch to turbo boost mode for fan cooling, reducing the temperature by 3-5 degrees Celsius in 10 minutes.
Xiaomi Gaming Laptop 1050Ti version cannot be called ultrabook, because the body thickness reaches 20.9 mm. The cover is made of stainless steel. The Xiaomi Game Laptop has 4 USB 3.0, one USB Type C, Gigabit Ethernet, and HDMI. Obviously, it is not an ultrabook so the overall dimensions of Mi Gaming are quite generous, with a maximum thickness of more than 2 centimeters.
