Machenike PCs for Q4 2024 sport Intel next-gen desktop and mobile CPUs
At the Bilibili World exhibition in Shanghai, Machenike, a popular Chinese PC hardware company, unveiled its next-generation hardware. Among them are a fresh design for its standard gaming desktop PC and a new line of Mini-PC systems, all set to incorporate Intel’s upcoming hardware.
The highlight of their showcase was the new desktop system, purportedly featuring Intel’s next-generation CPU, which is slated for a formal launch in October of this year. Notably, this timing coincides with Intel’s plans for the release of the 14th Gen Core Raptor Lake-Refresh for desktops. According to ITHome, Machenike confirmed that the new Intel Core series will hit the market within three months.
What sets this system apart is that it is expected to be one of the first to come equipped with PCIe Gen5 storage as a standard feature. Unlike prebuilt systems using 12th Gen or 13th Gen Core CPUs, which lacked access to newer PCIe SSDs during their initial launches, the current market now boasts a variety of faster NVMe SSD releases. This could serve as a compelling marketing point for potential customers looking for a new hardware.
Additionally, Machenike’s new system will feature the GeForce RTX 40 series GPU. Although specific models were not mentioned in the official render, it showcased a black GeForce RTX 40 GPU, even though such a model is yet to exist.
Among new systems, new Mini-PCs were also shown. According to the report, those systems could have already incorporated the new Meteor Lake or Raptor Lake Refresh processors. Intel is expected to formally launch these new mobile series by the end of this year.
