Dice from Xiaomi

Another cute example of PC miniaturization comes from Xiaomi and is called the Ningmei Rubic Cube Mini. Unfortunately, this "cube" with a dimension of 62 × 62 × 42 millimeters cannot be transformed as the most popular puzzle from which it borrows part of the name, but it manages to pack a PC into these dimensions.

It is unrealistic to expect some brutal hardware, but even the more modest one, which this "Rubik's" hides in itself, is not to be underestimated. The processor is an Intel Celeron J4125, with four cores, and supports Hyper-Threading. The operating clock is two gigahertz while the boost will drive the individual core to 2.7. The processor also features an Intel UHD Graphics 600 with twelve executive units that "beats" between 250 and 750 megahertz. The processor has a TDP of ten watts, and in the miniature case, there is room for an even smaller miniature fan and thus active cooling.

The rest of the specifications cover six or eight gigabytes of LPDDR4 memory, M.2 slot (factory filled with 128 or 256-gigabyte models), card reader (TF), two USB 3.0, one USB-C port, and dual-band wireless and Bluetooth for communication with the outside world. In the domestic, Chinese market, two versions of the Xiaomi Ningmei Rubik Cube Mini are sold: a model with six gigabytes of RAM and 128 gigabytes of storage costs the equivalent of $ 150, while a stronger one with eight gigabytes of memory and 256 gigabytes of storage costs about $ 35.
