intel rolls out NUC with 10mm Cannon Lake and AMD
Intel also announced
five new NUC kits for creating your own
mini-PCs. These "bare-bone" boxes come with the
itty-bitty chassis, motherboard ports, and
processor, but you'll need to add your own RAM,
storage, and operating system. Prices start at
$300 for the Core i3 devices.
The new models NUC8i7BEH, NUC8i5BEH, NUC8i5BEK, NUC8i3BEH, NUC8i3BEK rock Core i3, i5, or i7 processors depending on the model, built using the established 14nm "Coffee Lake" architecture rather than Cannon Lake. There are actually only three processors to choose from: the 2.7GHz, quad-core Core i7-8559U, the 2.3GHz quad-core Core i5-8259U, and the 3GHz, dual-core Core i3-8109U. All support HyperThreading.
The NUC kits include Intelís Iris Plus Graphics with eDRAM, making them ideal for home theater PCs as well as diminutive desktop rigs. Other basic specs include support for up to three displays via HDMI and USB-C, m.2 storage slots, a microSDXC card slot, and four USB ports (two USB 2.0 and two USB 3.0).
