The GEEKOM A8 features a metal housing with rounded corners in an anodized matte finish, and it is offered in a choice of Ryzen 7 8845HS and Ryzen 9 8945HS. Both chips feature 8 Zen 4 CPU cores, 16 threads, 16MB L3 cache, an AMD Radeon 780M integrated GPU as well as a Ryzen AI Engine NPU. But obviously, the Ryzen 9 is the higher performing of the two.

In the AI department, the new GEEKOM A8 boasts an enhanced NPU capable of 60% more AI workloads than the previous models, affording it quick text-to-image/video conversions, note summarization, call transcription, and faster AI-powered photo and video editing.

More power means more heat but fret not this little big guy is rocking the new IceBlast 1.5 cooling technology that will enable the A8 to keep its cool and remain stable even when loaded with tasks.

With this many I/Os, you can choose to connect to an eGPU, ultra high-speed storage, and up to four 4K displays. This thing is quite a beast, really.
