Geekom A8 review: Premium 0.5-liter mini-PC with AMD Ryzen 9 8945HS, 32 GB DDR5 RAM and 2 TB SSD

Compact powerhouse. The Geekom A-series combines excellent performance with an extremely compact form factor. The manufacturer has already proven that this concept works with the Geekom A7. The Geekom A8 is supposed to offer even more performance and is based on the AMD Ryzen 9 8945HS, which sounds very promising. We took a close look at the new flagship and analyzed its performance based on numerous benchmarks.

Mini-PCs are becoming increasingly powerful and are in no way inferior to conventional desktop PCs when it comes to everyday performance. The compact PCs also score highly in terms of efficiency, driving the use of mini-PCs. The Geekom A8 is based on the Geekom A7 and impresses visually with its elegant design. The top configuration of this extremely high-quality and powerful mini-PC is based on an AMD Ryzen 9 8945HS with 32 GB DDR5 RAM and a 2 TB SSD. If the Geekom A8 is on your wish list, you currently have to put around 950 euros on the table. The base configuration is slightly cheaper at 799 euros. However, the performance should hardly differ from the top model in practice, as the AMD Ryzen 7 8845HS is identical and also has eight cores and 16 threads.

The Geekom A8 will have to compete with Geekom A7. Nevertheless, we take a look at the performance in comparison to the other Mini-PC manufacturers, who also have very powerful devices in their portfolio. We have compiled an overview of the comparison devices in the following table.

Case - Sturdy 0.5l aluminum housing

The Geekom A8 uses the same housing as the Geekom A7 which has a very high-quality look and feel. The housing, made entirely of aluminum, offers enormous stability and the elegant design has a modern look. With a volume of around 0.5l, the Geekom A8 and Geekom A7 are among the most compact devices, and combine this with enormous computing power. In comparison, the Geekom A8 takes up less space on the desk, and at just over 400 grams, the mini-PC is also very light.

Features - Many connections including USB4

Although the Geekom A8 is extremely compact, the manufacturer has provided the mini-PC with a wide range of connection options. Four USB Type-A ports are sufficient, and in terms of numbers, Geekom is in line with the masses here. The most modern interface of the Geekom A8 is the USB4, which can expand the application possibilities enormously. In the test, we take a look at the performance in conjunction with external graphics cards. Screens can be connected directly via HDMI, although the two USB-C ports can also be used for image output as an alternative. In total, four screens can be operated simultaneously. Another positive feature is the fast SD card reader, which is located on the left-hand side.

Communication

WLAN module
WLAN module

A MediaTek Wi-Fi 6E MT7922 WLAN module is installed in the Geekom A8. The performance in our measurements is good and more than suitable for everyday use. In comparison with the competition, our test sample only comes out on top in places. The wireless module can handle the 2.4 GHz, 5 GHz, and 6 GHz frequency ranges. The Asus ROG Rapture GT-AXE11000 router was used for the performance tests. An RJ45 socket is also installed in the Geekom A8 and can be used as an alternative network connection. Transfer rates of up to 2.5 GBit/s are possible here.

Accessories

The scope of delivery includes the Geekom A8 together with the 120-watt power supply unit. The box also contains an HDMI cable and a VESA mounting plate.

Maintenance

Geekom always sells the A8 pre-configured, which means that you don't necessarily have to disassemble the device. Nevertheless, the RAM and SSD can be removed and replaced if necessary. To take the device apart, you first need to remove the glued-on rubber feet on the underside. Underneath are the four retaining screws to remove the base plate. You should be careful here, as the WLAN antenna cable does not have much room to maneuver and can be damaged. There is another metal plate under the base plate, which also needs to be removed if you want to access the SSD or RAM. The WLAN module can also be replaced and is not permanently installed. The CPU fan is located on the other side of the board and cannot be reached without completely dismantling it. With a little dexterity, the entire unit (board with cooling unit) can be removed from the housing.

Performance - AMD Ryzen 9 8945HS with 8 cores and 16 threads

The AMD Ryzen 9 8945HS ensures an excellent working speed in the Geekom A8. Technically, the SoC is based on the Zen4 architecture and combines eight cores with 16 threads. If you want to buy a cheaper configuration,  Geekom A8 can be equipped with the AMD Ryzen 7 8845HS that features slightly lower clock rates.

Test conditions

We carried out all performance tests with the Balanced power plan. The performance of the SoC and the RAM allocation (512 MB) were not changed in the BIOS and were left as delivered in accordance with the manufacturer's settings. The BIOS itself does not offer the option of making any changes here anyway.

Our test sample is equipped with the AMD Ryzen 9 8945HS. This belongs to the Hawk Point series and is still based on the Zen4 architecture. There are few changes compared to the 7000 series, which means that the Geekom A8 is not particularly different from the Geekom A7 in terms of performance. The duel with the recently introduced Minisforum AtomMan X7 Ti only won in places but you won't notice a noticeable difference in practice.

Cinebench R15 Multi loop

The Cinebench R15 endurance loop serves as our first endurance test to see how well the cooling system copes with the powerful AMD Ryzen 9 8945HS. At the beginning, we see a fairly stable performance of the processor, which decreases slightly in the second half. Up to 65 watts are available to the SoC in the short term, although just under 50 watts are reached under longer load. The temperature limit of the processor in the Geekom A8 is defined as 90 °C. In the performance comparison, this is enough for our mini-PC to secure third place. Only the Minisforum AtomMan X7 Ti and the Acemagic F2A deliver better performance in this test.

System performance

The system performance of the Geekom A8 is outstanding. However, this also applies to the other test devices that have already completed our test course. There will hardly be a noticeable difference in everyday use. However, the differences are measurable, even if they only vary by a few percentage points in the top ranks. The Geekom A7 can be easily outperformed in all tests.

DPC latencies

The Geekom A8 fails in terms of latency, and even surfing with the Edge browser results in increased values. The latencies increase further shortly after starting playback of the 4K test video. However, the Geekom A8 does not have any problems when playing high-resolution videos. The utilization of the iGPU is conspicuously high at 60 percent. The iGPU of the Geekom A7 was only utilized to 30 percent in the same test.

Mass storage

2 TB NVMe SSD
2 TB NVMe SSD

The Geekom A8 features the same model that we already tested in the Geekom A7. The Acer model delivers solid performance. The Acer N5000 is not one of the fastest SSDs, however the mass storage device masters everyday use with flying colors. There are no thermal problems, which is excellent considering the compact design. With 2 TB, the manufacturer has also installed a model with plenty of storage space. This is a good thing, as an additional data carrier cannot be installed in the device.
