When you hear about gaming PCs, you will most likely think about hulking towers with neon LED lights. Thanks to progress in technology and manufacturing, however, size is no longer as big a constraint as before. Mini PCs have emerged, some of them even capable of gaming. Chinese manufacturer Chuwi wants to do for this budding market what it has been doing for tablets and laptops: offer a product that pushes the envelope of what’s possible in that category, in price, design, and functionality. And that’s exactly what the Chuwi HiGame PC is for you. The Higame of Chuwi, like Intel’s NUC, is a mini PC with a Kaby Lake G processor. The RX Vega M graphics unit and the Intel CPU do a good job but still disappointed the box compared to the competitor.
The case is very well done by the manufacturer. The small box is only 19.7 x 15.7 x 7.6 cm in size and fits as well as anywhere. The case is in dark gray aluminum. It feels very high quality. A nice design element is the small handles, which can also be used as feet. The mini-PC also comes with an HDMI 2.0 port and a DisplayPort 1.3 port for simultaneous display connectivity supporting 4K UHD.
The HiGame is a mini PC that takes aim at gamers with its super powerful 8th Gen Intel Core i7-8709G Processor that runs at turbo frequency 4.1 GHz. The Radeon RX Vega M GH graphics also help to deliver a truly amazing gaming experience to even hardcore gamers. due to the power of 65 watts and the HBM2 memory used. The performance of the AMD Radeon RX Vega M GL lies between a GeForce GTX 1050 and a GTX 1050 Ti.
In addition, 256GB M.2 SSD memory and 8 GB DDR4 RAM are supplied ex-works. But that’s not all, with another DDR4 SO-DIMM socket and another M.2 PCIe SSD slot, memory and memory can be upgraded at will. In addition, there is an unused 2.5? inch HDD hard drive bay available, which provides enough space for games and other things.
Although compact, the HiGame doesn’t skimp on connectivity. It features five USB 3.0 ports on the rear, along with Ethernet, two HDMI 2.0 ports, and two DisplayPorts, along with a microphone and headphone jack. The front features a USB-C Thunderbolt 3 port as well, so all the bases are covered. Gaming PCs, by nature of their power, are pretty much all around PCs. The Chuwi HiGame is now different and it can certainly be used for any use case imaginable, including crypto mining. 3D modeling and multimedia work are obviously no problem, and, you might be surprised, neither is virtual reality. Thanks to its 6 in x 6 in size and premium design, it can even sit nicely beside your 4K TV as your media center. And, yes, you can carry it around if you really need or want to.
Any gamer seeing a gaming PC this small will naturally have concerns over cooling. Chuwi knows that as well and has employed three layers of thermal management that includes multiple copper heat sinks, an “astonishingly quiet” 90 mm fan, and all-around vents to facilitate airflow. While we’ll take Chuwi’s word for it, you’d probably still want to be ready with some external assistance.
The computer supports 802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth 4.2 and comes with Windows 10 Home 64-bit software pre-installed. The whole thing weighs just under 2.9 pounds, making this a gaming PC that you can pick up and take with you. Both models feature a metal chassis with a Thunderbolt 3 port, two HDMI 2.0b ports, 2 DisplayPort 1.3 ports, Gigabit Ethernet, mic and headphone jacks, and 5 USB 3.0 ports.
The design of the Chuwi HiGame is industrial, and, at least in my opinion, quite stylish. Despite going into the gaming market, Chuwi hasn’t yet gone crazy with the styling, and this mini-PC should fit in well in almost any environment.
