Intel had launched its latest Intel NUC (Next Unit of Computing) based on the eighth-gen Intel Core i7 processor with Radeon RX Vega M graphics.

The new Intel NUC (formerly code-named Hades Canyon) brings this new processor and graphics solution into a tiny 1.20-liter system. Targeted for VR enthusiasts and workload-heavy content creators, it will be Intel’s smallest premium VR-capable system in the market.

 

The new NUC will come in two versions – NUC8i7HVK and NUC8i7HNK.

  • The NUC8i7HVK is based on the unlocked version of the new 8th Gen Intel Core processor with the Radeon RX Vega M GH graphics, giving overclockers the ability to take the system to higher levels.
  • The NUC8i7HNK uses the 8th Gen Intel Core processor with the Radeon RX Vega M GL graphics.

To support all of this processing and graphics horsepower, both NUCs offer connectivity options that include dual Thunderbolt 3 ports and dual Gigabit Ethernet ports. The system can drive six independent monitors simultaneously, and one of the HDMI ports is on the unit’s front, making it easy to plug in a VR headset. These NUCs will be sold as bare-bones kits, targeted to DIYers who are looking for small and powerful mini PCs.
