Design and Ports
First of all, Huawei is not making these desktops for the general public. The desktop computer is meant to serve the government and industries so, the design looks dull and boring. On the front, there are stripes running down the height of the device. At the top, we can notice the company branding. To its right, there’s a circular power button.

The desktop might make use of Huawei’s Kunpeng 920 motherboard. The motherboard and associated components are only available for enterprises. Initially, it was reported that the desktop will be powered by AMD Ryzen 5 PRO 4400G. The Hexa-core processor was reported to have a base clock frequency of 3.7Ghz (boosted frequency @ 4.2GHz).

However, IT Home suggests the desktop computer will come with Huawei’s Kunpeng 920 3211K. The platform can support 24 cores with a frequency of up to 2.6GHz. There will be 8GB of RAM, 512GB of SSD storage, and AMD graphics. The report claims the processor can slightly outperform the Intel Core i9 – 9900K in multi-core performance. It will ship with the China-made Unified Operating System (UOS). Users won’t be able to change the OS, graphics card, and processor.
