Mind Graphics Update - #1

Hello Everyone,


We would like to express our gratitude to all our crowdfunding backers for your attention and support! Today, we are excited to present to you the latest developments in Mind Graphics' research and development.

Whether you are an existing pre-order customer or someone who has been keeping an eye on us, we hope that through this presentation, you will gain a deeper and more authentic understanding of the design intricacies, product features, design philosophy and brand positioning of the Mind Graphics.



Recently, Mind Graphics' progress has reached a significant milestone as we have successfully completed the first phase of our engineering design work. Over the past few months, our engineers have worked tirelessly to complete the initial engineering design phase, laying a solid foundation for the realization of Mind Graphics. During this first phase, numerous new features have been added.

In today's tech-driven world, product design is no longer merely about attractive aesthetics and industrial design, but also about profoundly improving the user experience and product performance.

Our goal is to strike a balance between design and performance in Mind Graphics, allowing you to not only enjoy its sleek and compact exterior but also experience outstanding GPU performance and exceptional thermal management.

This article will unveil the uniqueness of Mind Graphics and why it manages to be so compact whilst also delivering powerful computing capabilities.

To better showcase the overall design state of Mind Graphics, we will present you with design blueprints. Thus, enabling you to witness both the product's exterior and internal structure firsthand.

Unique Khadas Mind Docking Mechanism

Mind Graphics introduces a novel ‘locking mechanism’ ensuring that users don’t experience issues with Khadas Mind becoming accidentally decoupled or loose from the Mind Graphics module during GPU use.

This innovative design incorporates multiple layers of security:

  • Motorized Locking: When Khadas Mind is docked, an electronic signal is sent to the Mind Graphics module. A motor then immediately locks the Khadas Mind into place, ensuring it remains securely attached to the GPU during operation.

  • Intelligent Unlocking: When you need to remove Khadas Mind from the Mind Graphics module, you can unlock it using the Mind App or the physical unlock button. The software ensures that the GPU isn’t in use, before sending an unlocking request to the motor, ensuring a safe GPU decoupling.

  • Exceptional Protection: In the event of a sudden power outage, Mind Graphics will intelligently unlock itself, preventing your Khadas Mind from becoming locked in-place due to power interruptions, thereby safe-guarding your autonomy and freedom.


Powerful Active Cooling System

Within its incredibly compact form factor, Mind Graphics not only delivers exceptional computing performance but also boasts remarkable heat dissipation capabilities.

This is made possible through the following design features:

  • Dual Turbo High-Volume Fans: Mind Graphics employs two turbo high-volume fans, that only are required to run at ~80% speed to meet the GPU cooling requirements, this effectively reduces noise during high workloads.

  • Pure Copper Heat Fins: The cooling system incorporates pure copper fins, providing rapid heat transport performance to ensure stable temperatures, even during high-load operations.

  • Front-to-Back Airflow: A meticulously designed front-to-back airflow pathway ensures rapid heat expulsion, enhancing the overall efficiency of the cooling system.

  • AC Power Cooling: To ensure stable operation, the 300-watt AC power module is also cooled by the active cooling system through an independent airflow channel.


Space-Saving AC Power Module

To feed its powerful GPU, Mind Graphics incorporates an incredible 300-watt GaN (Gallium Nitride) power supply within its slim chassis. This power module delivers 165-watts to the GPU, up to 85-watts for external Type-C devices such as laptops, and finally 100-watts to the attached Khadas Mind. All this power within an astonishingly compact design.

Additional Outstanding Features

In addition to the afore-mentioned design highlights, Mind Graphics boasts a range of impressive features:

  • Seamless Signal Switching Between Mind Link & Thunderbolt 4: Use Mind Graphics with your other devices such as Type-C laptops and desktops.

  • High-Speed USB-A Ports: All USB-A ports support 10 Gbps transfer speeds; fully leverage the performance of your external USB devices.

  • High-Quality Stereo Speakers: With two 10-watt inbuilt speakers, Mind Graphics provides a superior audio experience with higher sound quality.

  • Built-In Array Microphones: Mind Graphics also comes equipped with a pair of sensitive array microphones, ensuring crystal-clear voice calls.

  • Noise-Cancelling Algorithm: Audio from the array microphones is fed into a noise-cancelling algorithm that reduces background noise from the environment as well as the inbuilt speakers through an analysis of the structural acoustics.


In the near future, we will be demonstrating a prototype of Mind Graphics and sharing our forthcoming research and development plans. We remain committed to adhering to our timeline and executing our plans as scheduled to ensure delivery of the product on time, whilst meeting high-quality standards.

Once again, we would like to express our gratitude for your support and interest in our products.The development of Mind Graphics would not be possible without your trust and support, and we will continue to work passionately to provide you with a satisfying product. If you have any questions or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to future collaborations and sharing more exciting moments with you.

Challenge Forth!
