MSI’s Cubi 2 is a mini-PC packing Kaby Lake

MSI has launched its latest mini-PC, the Cubi 2, which comes packing Intel’s 7th generation Kaby Lake processors.

The compact desktop computer measures 4.5 x 4.4 x 1.7-inches (or less) and supports Intel Core i3, Core i5, and Core i7 Kaby Lake-U series processors.

Small enough to attach to the back of a display using a VESA mount, the Cubi 2 comes with both a DisplayPort and HDMI output, allowing users to attach two displays.

What’s more, the integrated Intel HD 620 graphics means the Cubi 2 is capable of supporting displays with up to 4K resolutions.

In terms of other ports, there’s also three USB 3.1 ports, a USB Type-C connection, separate mic and headphone jacks, and an Ethernet port.

MSI is offering two versions of the computer, one with enough room for an M.2 solid state drive, and a slightly larger version capable of housing M.2 storage and a 2.5-inch hard drive or SSD.

The company also claims the device is as ‘quiet as a forest’, which basically means the Cubi 2 comes with a low noise fan, resulting in a noise level of 23.7 dB.

There’s a black and white version of the Cubi 2, both of which will be available globally soon. While the computer seems to be available in the US now, UK pricing is currently unavailable, but we’re hoping to have more on that in the near future.

In the US, the computer is available starting at $299 for the Core i3 model, $379 for the i5 model and $499 for the i7 version.
