The Chatreey TANK is a compact desktop computer that stuffs the guts of a 2022 gaming laptop  into a small cube-shaped PC with RGB lighting effects around a performance dial on the front of the computer.

If the design looks familiar, that’s because the Chatreey TANK appears to be virtually identical to the ACEMAGIC TANK 03 that I wrote about a few weeks ago. But Chatreey’s version comes with more configuration options and a much lower starting price of just under $750.

The computer measures 167 x 167 x 161mm (6.6″ x 6.6″ x 6.3″) and features a 45-watt, 12th-gen Intel Core processor, NVIDIA RTX 30 series graphics, and room for plenty of memory and storage thanks to:

  • 2 x DDR5-4800 SODIMM slots for up to 64GB of RAM
  • 3 x M.2 2280 slots

The product page is a little bit vague about those PCIe slots, suggesting that at least one will support PCIe 4.0, while others may top out at PCIe 3.0 speeds.

Ports include:

  • 1 x Thunderbolt 4
  • 2 x HDMI 2.0
  • 1 x DisplayPort 1.4
  • 6 x USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A
  • 2 x 3.5mm audio (1 front and 1 rear)
  • 2 x 2.5 GbE Ethernet
  • 1 x SD card reader

The system also features a wireless card with support for WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2.

Chatreey’s version of the TANK mini PC is currently available with three CPU and graphics configurations:

  • Intel Core i7-12700H/NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 for $750 and up
  • Intel Core i9-12900H/NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 for $813 and up
  • Intel Core i9-12900H/NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 for $906 and up

Starting prices get you a computer with 16GB of RAM and a 1TB SSD, but you can also pay more for up to 64GB of RAM and 2TB of storage, or bring your own.

One thing to keep in mind is that the ACEMAGIC TANK 03 ships with a custom NVIDIA graphics driver, and I suspect the Chatreey model will as well. That means rather than getting regular GPU updates delivered by NVIDIA, you may have to look for infrequent updates available for download from ACEMAGIC or Chatreey.

According to the product page at Chatreey’s AliExpress storefront, models with NVIDIA RTX 3060 chips may be available at some point, but you can’t currently buy one, and right now the prices for those models are showing up as higher than prices fore models with RTX 3070 or better graphics.

  1. In the size of that Mini PC, I suppose it is not possible to place an Nvidia RTX 3080 16Gb VRAM… My doubt or question is whether the graphics card will not be the laptop version with less power and less RAM… Does anyone know? If the equipment really includes the RTX 3080 graphics card with 16 GB of VRAM? or is it the laptop version.

    Thank you

    1. I know that the dimensions of the outside of the case are roughly 210x210x210mm being cube shaped, It is difficult to know whether the GPU is the laptop version because it could also be a custom build of the regular 3080 (you can tell I don’t know much about GPUs), but I’m guessing it’s the laptop version because prices are also quite low considering. If it says it has 16gb vram it had better have it for $1000 or however much that is lmao
