Bleu Jour, the French PC manufacturing company, announced two CPU options for their small, cube-shaped mini PC known as the Kubb Graphite edition. According to a report from TechRadar, it will offer both an Intel and Ryzen option for the CPU.

This announcement comes from the IFA 2020 tech expo in Berlin. It measures in at 4.7" x 4.7" x 4.7" (12cm x 12cm x 12cm) forming a cube shape with notably sharp edges and corners.

One version of this new mini PC will offer an embedded Ryzen R1606G chip, while the other comes with a V1605B. However, the two share comparable specs with similar options to upgrade. The base model comes with 8 GB of LPDDR4 that can be upgraded to 32 GB. Both support Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth and include a Realtek Gigabit Ethernet adapter.

The new PC includes a wide selection of colors and more for the outer shell. Buyers can choose from options like graphite and quartz or even indulge in sleek options like the mirror shell. There are some basic colors to choose from, including things like "passion red," fuschia, chocolate, and champagne.

The price you pay will vary depending on the hardware you choose to upgrade. The most basic V1605B model with Linux Mint costs around $803.84 (€679). Adding additional shells and choose the Windows 10 OS option will increase the final price. If you want to check out this minimal mini PC rig, head over to the Bleu Jour website.
