MACHENIKE Decides to Switch to AMD for Its Next Flagship Mini PC, Ryzen 8040 APUs at Reasonable Price Points Under $500 US

MACHENIKE is a well-known firm when it comes to computing products in China, and they have released a wide range of products, the most popular being the Creator Mini II mini PCs with Intel's 13th and 14th Gen CPUs. However, this time, the Chinese manufacturer has decided to take things to the next level by introducing its latest MACHENIKE mini-GTX PC to commemorate the firm's 10th anniversary. The mini-GTX is reported to be the firm's flagship product, designed to deliver the best to its customers.

Starting with the details, the mini-GTX Mini PC will feature AMD's top Ryzen 7 8845HS APU from the firm's recently released Ryzen 8000 series. The chip has eight Zen 4 cores, 16 threads, a core clock of up to 5.1 GHz, and a TDP that can be configured between 45W-54W that can be tuned to 65W and 16 MB of L3 cache.

For gaming, the chip has an RDNA 3-based AMD Radeon 780M iGPU, which offers 12 compute units clocked at 2700 MHz. In terms of computing and graphics performance, the Mini PC is a very balanced machine with high-end capabilities and the fastest AI NPU on the market right now.

Interestingly, in terms of overall design, the mini-GTX Mini PC has a bright logo on the top, which at least to my eye resembles Superman's logo. The overall chassis is solid metal, and runs around the usual gray color scheme, so there's nothing fancy. The entire PC measures 12.8*12.8*5cm and comes in a 0.82L chassis.

The mini-GTX is a solid choice for those interested in a daily driver computing machine as it offers good performance and portability and is suitable for the average user. However, since MACHENIKE products are often regionally limited, we may not see the mini-GTX released globally.

In terms of pricing, the lowest you can get is 2,899 Yuan / $400, which includes 16 GB of memory and 1 TB of SSD capacity. The 32GB variant will cost you around 3,499 Yuan / $483, which is decent but a lot to pay for a mini PC.
