Intel has finally taken the wraps off of its Core CPUs with AMD Radeon graphics, and it's already putting the package to use. Alongside the launch of the new chips, Intel has revealed an update to NUC, its small form factor bare-bones PC, based on the new silicon.
The new NUC will be available in two different versions, Intel says. Here's a look:
- 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.
In addition to the new processor and graphics setup, Intel says that NUC will support up to 32GB of RAM and plenty of connectivity options. Those include two Thunderbolt 3 ports, two gigabit ethernet ports, HDMI, DisplayPort 1.3, USB-C, and more.
The new NUC will be sold as bare-bones kits, meaning you'll be able to equip it with storage and RAM as you see fit. Given the size of the machine and the inclusion of Intel's new CPUs with Radeon graphics, however, Intel is billing NUC as the "smallest VR-capable system ever," which is certainly impressive if you value your desk real estate.
There's no pricing available just yet, but Intel says the new NUC units will be available starting this spring. For more, you can check out the full NUC spec sheet at Intel.
