The NucBox will be one of the smallest 4K-cable mini PCs you can find when it hopefully launches later this year. Specs-wise, it's looking to be an upgrade from the Chuwi Larkbox in terms of CPU performance, WLAN, and RAM.
Allen Ngo,

Not to be outdone by the recent Chuwi Larkbox, another Chinese manufacturer will be crowdfunding its own super-small 4K mini PC. The GMK NucBox will be almost the same size as the Larkbox but with a slightly faster Celeron J4125 processor, more RAM, and a faster 2x2 802.11ac WLAN module as detailed by the comparison chart below.

Visually, the GMK system will have a dark gray metal finish on four sides in contrast to the jet black Larkbox. Port options will otherwise be identical to suggest that the two models may be using very similar motherboards.

The one detail that remains unclear is whether or not the NucBox includes a secondary M.2 2242 expansion slot much like on the LarkBox. If not, then the LarkBox will have an advantage when it comes to expandable storage.

GMK says its Indiegogo page will go live on August 20 with an early bird price of $159 and a target retail price of $209 USD.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
