Xiaomi wants to launch into a new technological sector: that of PCpresenting gods mini-PC e desktop. The company has already announced the handset Xiaomi Book Air 13 and seems to want to continue to “respond” to Apple’s Macs by launching competing products, using Windows 11.
Xiaomi aims at the desktop PC sector
The launch event would be due to be December 1st in China. But Xiaomi has postponed the presentation to a date to be specified. However, the first images have leaked online that seem to confirm that the Chinese company is ready to launch itself into the world of desktop PCs.
The company had already started launching laptops capable of offering performance and quality at a lower price than Apple and other rivals in the medium-high price range. And this summer he had announced the arrival also on Italian market of Xiaomi Book S 12.4 ″, the company’s first 2-in-1 that can be purchased in Italy. But now, it seems that the company is also targeting the desktop PC market.
Indeed, the company seems intent on launching more than one form-factor: sia a mini-PC than a mini-tower, to adapt to the needs of users of various types. Without sacrificing computing power.
Il mini-PC con chip AMD
The design of this new Xiaomi desktop PC seems to be inspired quite directly by Mac Mini, with a minimalist approach showing the holes for the vents. The number of ports visible in this image is limited: due USB-A 3.2 e un jack audio. But on the back they should amble: we undoubtedly expect video inputs (HDMI and perhaps not only) and an Ethernet input, but there could also be other ports.
What emerges from the online rumors instead is the processor, which should be one APU AMD Ryzen 7 6800Hcon iGPU Radeon 680M RDNA 2. So we are not talking about the most powerful of PCs, but it should guarantee good performance both from a computational and graphic point of view.
It will also have 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD to store data. The price is also quite interesting, which should be 3,999 yuan, about 545 euros.
A more traditional desktop PC for Xiaomi
Less information on the PC more traditional in design, albeit small: a mini tower with an ‘industrial’ style. The chassis indeed should be in aluminium, or in any case metal.
According to rumors, he should have one 100 Watt power in the power supply, which seems quite low especially for a discrete GPU. If so, we don’t expect unheard-of powers for this PC SFF (Small Form Factor). Although having less information than the Mini-PC could reveal some surprises.
In promotional material for this PC, there is talk of special features for i tasti Win-M. Which confirms it partnership con Microsoft, first of all. But which also suggests some special features, probably an integration with the brand’s smartphones: M could be a reminder of MIUI, the operating system of Xiaomi smartphones.
These are the information available at the moment, but it seems that the possible launch is not far away: we will keep you informed about it.
