The mini PC starts at $499 USD with the integrated Radeon RX Vega M GL GPU, 4 GB of HBM2 VRAM, 8 GB of DDR4 RAM, and 256 GB M.2 2280 SSD. The three-year old processor is apparently still finding some life in more obscure products like the HaxMini.

Mini PCs are a dime a dozen, but mini PCs running on uncommon processors can be an interesting way to grab more attention and stand out from the pack. The small company HaxMini will be launching its Kickstarter campaign on November 16th for its new mini PC powered by the Intel-AMD Core i5-8305G CPU and Radeon RX Vega M GL graphics.

The aforementioned processor was initially introduced in 2018 as part of Intel's Kaby Lake-G series of CPUs. Unfortunately, the platform was very short-lived due in part to its low adoption rate from major PC manufacturers. It consisted of the Core i5-8305G, Core i7-8705G, and Core i7-8809G which only found their way to a small handful of products like the Dell XPS 15 9575 2-in-1 or Hades Canyon NUC. Thus, the fact that HaxMini wants to use a 3-year old Kaby Lake-G CPU for its latest mini PC is unheard of.

Aside from the CPU, the mini PC itself will be very small at just 162 x 134.5 x 134.5 mm with multiple HDMI, DisplayPort, and USB 3.0 ports. It'll be interesting to see how well the HaxMini can perform in the face of newer and more common Tiger Lake-H or Zen 3 options.
