Shenzhen Wesion Technologyis a manufacturer of single-board computers and media players. kadas mind. This concept workstation can be expanded with additional ports or its own dock with integrated graphics processor. However, there are pitfalls. Unlike traditional PCs, Hadas Mind can: that’s all It can be upgraded with its own dock and cannot support standard Thunderbolt or USB4 devices.
Wesion’s Khadas Mind is a tiny workstation measuring 146 x 105 x 20 mm (5.75 x 4.13 x 0.79 inches), powered by Intel’s 12-core Core i7-1360P processor with integrated Iris Xe graphics, coupled with 32 GB of LPDDR5-5200 memory and two M.2-2230 SSDs (one PCIe 4 ) can be installed. 0 x4 interface and an interface with a PCIe 3.0 x4 interface.
The unit can drive up to three 4K displays out of the box and has all the connectivity features you’d expect from a compact workstation, including a Wi-Fi 6E + Bluetooth 5.3 adapter, two USB Type-C connectors (supporting DP, PD, and USB 2.0 or USB 3.2 Gen2), USB 3.2 Type-A, HDMI output, and a Mind Link header for connecting to a dock.
As for the docks, the company will initially offer two Mind Link compatible docks. One adds a 2.5 GbE port, three USB 3.2 (5 Gbps) Type-A connectors, two HDMI 2.0 outputs, an SD card reader, a USB Type-C power port, an audio jack, and a volume control knob. The other features Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 4060M mobile GPU and adds a USB-C port, USB-A connector, audio jack and SD card reader.
However, these docks have their pitfalls. You can’t use them at the same time, so either have all the ports or have the right graphics processor. Wesion will eventually offer more docking options, but it remains to be seen if they will work together or only on their own.

One of the interesting features of Khadas Mind is that it has a 5.55Wh battery inside, which provides extra protection in case of power failure and allows you to take it with you even in sleep mode without shutting down the device.
Small workstations with powerful features are nothing new. Dell, HP, and Lenovo have been offering them for years, and Apple recently debuted his Mac Mini with his workstation-grade M2 Pro inside. However, small workstations have drawbacks. It doesn’t have high-performance graphics, has limited connectivity, and can’t be upgraded. Wesion Technology plans to change that with the ultra-portable Khadas Mind workstation and dock set the company will offer.
However, these docks are not an ideal solution. It looks neat and connects solidly to your system, but the Khadas Mind is only compatible with those, not his regular Thunderbolt 3/4 docks or USB 3.2/4 docks. Additionally, these docks only work individually and cannot work together.
However, today almost every small workstation from a well-known PC manufacturer has a Thunderbolt or USB4 port. A standard, widely available dock can be used to add an external graphics card of your choice and many additional ports. Such a setup doesn’t look as impressive as the Khadas Mind, but it could be cheaper and more feature rich than his Khadas Mind with its own dock.
One thing to keep in mind about Kadath Mind is that it’s still in development. Interested parties can subscribe to the company’s mailing list and wait until development is complete.
When it comes to connectivity, the Minisforum HX90G has everything you’d expect from a modern compact PC. 2.5Gb, 4 display outputs (2 DisplayPort, 2 HDMI), 1 USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-C connector, 4 USB 3.2 Type-A connectors (3 USB 3.2 Gen2, 1 Gen1), and audio jacks. As for Wi-Fi, it can be added using the M.2-2230 slot.
