We have seen tiny PCs before, but they usually have low-end hardware specs. This week, Intel revealed a tiny PC that can have high-end hardware inside, including an Intel Core i7 processor, that's designed with PC gaming and Windows 10 in mind.
The Intel NUC Kit NUC6i7KYK, also known as "Skull Canyon", packs in an Intel Core i7-6770HQ processor running at speeds between 2.6GHz and 3.5GHz. It also has a dedicated Intel Iris Pro graphics chipset. While it's not a separate PC graphics card, it is a bit more powerful than the usual dedicated graphics ship that is normally found on these small PCs.
Other solid hardware specs include four USB 3.0 ports along with a Thunderbolt 3 port for connecting to 4K displays. It can also connect to devices like the just launched Razer Core which allows desktop graphics cards to be used on notebooks and small PCs. Skull Canyon will go on sale in a few weeks, via NewEgg.com. for $650. Buyers will have to purchase and install Windows 10 separately, along with its storage and RAM. It can support up to 32GB of DDR4 RAM, and it offers dual M.2 slots for SATA3/PCIe x4 Gen 3 NVMe/AHCI SSDs.
