Colorful AIO with RTX 3060 Laptop GPU
EJ Hardware tests Colorful’s new AIO gaming system.
The team from Chinese tech media “EJ Hardware”, has a sample of Colorful G-One Plus AIO gaming PC. This device made a debut last month, and it is now available for sale. This product is an all-in-one gaming system, which means there is no standard PC chassis here, but a large monitor stand that hides all the components, with an exception to the power supply (which is actually quite large 330W unit).
G-One features a custom motherboard for Intel Alder Lake-H mobile processors and NVIDIA’s RTX 3060 Laptop GPU. Technically speaking this is a laptop attached to the monitor. Gamers cannot replace the processor or GPU, but standard SO-DIMM slots for DDR5 memory are here. Furthermore, users can upgrade the PC with secondary M.2 SSD and replace M.2 Wi-Fi card should that ever be necessary.
The AIO PC is offered with three Alder Lake CPUs: Core i5-12500H (12-core), Core i7-12700H (14-core) or Core i9-12900H. The system tested by EJ Hardware features Core i5-12500H, so the lowest spec’ed version. The graphics, on the other hand, are the same for each configuration. This is the full-power Max-P variant of GeForce RTX 3060 laptop graphics (so 115W+Dynamic Boost). In stress test this GPU reaches 134W max board power.
Colorful G-One has been tested in synthetic and gaming benchmarks (the latter can be found by watching the video below). The CPU performs just as expected for a laptop with similar specs, but the GPU is a slightly different story.
In 3DMark test, the PC scores 26,793 points in FireStrike GPU test, which is even better than Core i7-12700H based AUS TUF Laptop with RTX 3060 GPU (23,109 points) according to NotebookCheck ranking. That is, in fact, the highest score reported by the website.
This is an interesting product (although not entirely new) concept. Gaming-capable AIO PCs could find use where there is limited space, but a larger screen is still preferable. A college dorm or Internet Cafés might be the first thing that come to mind. The system tested by EJ costs 1999 USD, so a lot more than the typical RTX 3060 laptop these days.
