Tank 03 is a cube-shaped gaming PC with discrete RTX GPU
AceMagic developed a new personal computer with powerful gaming hardware.
The company has unveiled a new line of Mini-PCs tailored for the gamers not necessary looking for large desktop PCs. This is not the first small form factor system designed by this company for gamers. And we can even see what distinctive features were used for this system as well.
The Tank 03 Mini-PCs come equipped with a mode switching knob that allows users to switch between a high-performance APU setting with a louder fan profile for gaming and a quiet, everyday PC mode for work. Building upon this concept, the Tank 03 takes it a step further by incorporating a discrete GPU.
This gaming cube is set to be powered by the Intel 12th Gen Core (Alder Lake) CPU series, even though newer 14th Gen desktop and mobile CPUs are on the horizon. The system can be configured with up to a Core i9-12900H CPU, boasting 6 P-Cores and 8 E-Cores, resulting in a total of 14 cores, with a maximum boost clock speed of 5.0 GHz. Alternatively, users can opt for the Core i7-12700H processor, which offers identical specs, except with a slightly lower clock speed of 4.7 GHz. Both CPU models should be quite capable for gaming, considering they are commonly found in many gaming laptops to this day.
Gamers will be able to select from three distinct GPU options: the RTX 3060, RTX 3070, or RTX 3080. It’s worth noting that these GPUs are laptop variants, which means they have slightly lower Total Graphics Power (TGP), clock speeds, and memory specifications compared to their desktop counterparts. Nonetheless, given the compact size of this system, that’s still impressive.
AceMagic Tank 03 options
- Intel Core i9-12900H/RTX 3080/32GB RAM (2 x 16GB)/1TB SSD
- Intel Core i7-12700H/RTX 3070/32GB RAM (2 x 16GB)/1TB SSD
- Intel Core i7-12700H/RTX 3060/32GB RAM (2 x 16GB)/1TB SSD
- Intel Core i7-12700H/RTX 3060/16GB RAM (1 x 16GB)/1TB SSD
This compact system measures just 16.7 x 16.7 x 16.1 cm, yet it manages to fit seven heatpipes for a 45W CPU and a 120W GPU. While many Alder Lake Mini-PCs typically use DDR4 memory, the Tank 03 takes a step forward by adopting DDR5 technology, albeit with a speed limit of 4800 MT/s. The system’s memory capacity can go up to 64GB, but the highest option to be available for purchase will feature 32GB. It’s possible that a barebone system may be offered in the future, but that hasn’t been officially confirmed as of yet.
On the device itself, users will find a Thunderbolt 4 port, along with six USB 3.2 Type-A ports, two HDMI 2.0 ports, DisplayPort 1.4, and more. There is even an SD-card slot and front facing audio mini-jack.
As per the report by Liliputing, the company is considering the addition of a small display for this device, presumably to be located where the mode-switching knob is placed. This display would be offered as a separate optional accessory for users to add. It’s worth noting that it may not be available at the initial launch of the product. However, if the company successfully implements this feature, it would indeed be a unique addition to a Mini-PC.
Currently, the company has not revealed any details regarding the pricing or release date for the Tank 03. We will be sure to share an update as soon as we obtain this information from the company.
