Geekom plans to unveil three new compact systems incorporating the latest CPU series from Intel and AMD. The Core Ultra 7 155H is slated for integration into the IT14 Pro system, a Mini-PC housed in a 0.7-liter chassis that boasts an Intel 4nm CPU with 16 cores and 22 threads. The company asserts a 20% increase in multi-core workload performance compared to Geekom’s prior generation system.
Moreover, it will showcase the all-new Arc graphics, promising a remarkable 90% increase in performance compared to the previous Xe Iris graphics architecture. Additionally, the Meteor Lake silicon includes a dedicated NPU unit to enhance the acceleration of AI workloads. These represent the key enhancements in Geekom’s Intel lineup, with more updates anticipated for the AMD portfolio.
Both the A8 Max and APro8 Max run on the AMD Ryzen 8040 “Hawk Point” CPU series featuring Zen4/RDNA3 architectures. These chips, revealed this month, are projected to debut in Q1 2024, indicating that the AMD-powered products showcased by Geekom won’t be launching as promptly as their Intel-based counterparts.
Regarding specifications, the A8 Max will offer a choice between the Ryzen 7 8840HS or Ryzen 9 8940HS, both equipped with 8 Zen4 cores and Radeon 780M graphics. It’s noteworthy that certain PR materials reference the Ryzen 9 8940H, potentially a China-exclusive SKU, though it hasn’t received official confirmation from AMD. Similar to the previous-gen Ryzen 7040 series, these chips incorporate integrated AI acceleration hardware. A noteworthy improvement in the Hawk Point series is the substantial 60% speed boost for the XDNA NPU unit.
Crucially, the APro8 Max will include dedicated Radeon RX 7600M XT graphics, touted by the company to deliver performance akin to the laptop GeForce RTX 4060. This mid-range SKU boasts a Navi 33 GPU with 2048 Stream Processors and 8GB GDDR6 memory on a 128-bit bus.
