A recent spherical of leaks recommend that Intel is making ready to launch a brand new lineup of its NUC (Subsequent Unit of Computing) mini PCs in 2019, becoming these small-form-factor computer systems with a few of its newest and making them formidable little performers.
We’ve been very impressed with Intel’s NUC units previously, particularly this yr’s entry, the Intel Hades Canyon NUC. They’re bare-bone units that want storage, reminiscence and an working system put in, making them versatile units that may be simply upgraded, and up to date entries can deal with gaming as nicely.
According to Wccftech, which has reported on existence of this new line of NUC units, there might be two new lineups, a Espresso Lake-H Refresh “Ghost Canyon X” NUC line and a Comet Lake-U “Frost Canyon” NUC.
The Ghost Canyon X lineup will apparently function ninth technology Core processors, as much as the flagship Core i9 processor. The NUC9i9QNX Ghost Canyon X options an eight-core, 16-thread Core i9 CPU, and can assist a single PCIe x16 slot and include three HDMI 2.0a ports, two Thunderbolt three, eight USB ports, two M.2 ports (PCIe Gen three x4) and Optane reminiscence assist.
In accordance with Wccftech, there will even be a NUC9i7QNX Ghost Canyon X NUC with a Core i7 processor and 6 cores and 12 threads, and the NUC9i5QNX Ghost Canyon X with a quad-core Intel Core i5 processor.
No particulars concerning the graphical capabilities of those NUCs have been revealed, however they are going to doubtless use Intel’s built-in UHD Graphics, as earlier variations have. Apparently, they are going to launch in the direction of the tip of 2019.
In accordance with Wccftech, there might be Comet Lake-U Frost Canyon NUCs coming in 2019 as nicely. Apparently, there might be a top-end mannequin – the NUC9i7FNH Frost Canyon – which can include an Intel Core i7 processor with an unspecified variety of cores.
There will even be a NUC9i5FNH Frost Canyon NUC with a quad-core Intel Core i5 processor, and a NUC9i3FNH Frost Canyon NUC with a dual-core Intel Core i3 processor.
If these specs are correct, then 2019 could possibly be an awesome yr for the mighty – and mini – NUC.
