Along with smartphones and AIoT goods, Xiaomi is planning to enter a number of other markets. Their smartphone business has been performing quite well in the marketplace. The brand also intends to produce its first-ever AI-driven automobile in order to get into the electric vehicle market.
At present, the company is preparing to join the desktop PC market. A few really nice Windows laptops from the brand have previously been released.
The two different styles were reportedly planned to be unveiled at the Xiaomi event on December 1. Due to Jiang Zemin’s passing as the former general secretary of the Chinese Communist Party, the event has been postponed. It appears that two PC designs were still shown off to select folks a little early while we wait for a new date to be set.
Let’s start with the former. The Xiaomi Host Mini PC appears to be a small form factor (SFF) device that has been showcased in a basic version. That is to say, the system in the image only has a 100W XM22AL5X PSU installed. The remainder of the hardware that will be included in the box hasn’t been revealed because it’s unlikely that Xiaomi will sell it as a full-featured kit.
Now let’s go on to the other system, about which we know a lot more. It is a small PC with a form factor similar to the Mac Mini or Intel NUC. It will reportedly be powered by a 45W MD Ryzen 7 6800H APU with a Radeon 680M RDNA2 GPU, 16GB of memory, and a 512GB SSD. Rumour has it that it will cost CNY 3999, or about $570.
