The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas is now in full swing, and one of the first things we spied at the event is Intel's new NUC 9 Extreme mini PC. Also called a Ghost Canyon NUC, this Next Unit of Computing device has been the subject of past leaks and rumors, and is now an official product with Intel's CES unveiling. What is especially interesting about this particular evolution of the NUC is that Intel is promising desktop-class performance with gaming chops from a 5.0-liter form factor. it is quite a bit different than some of the smaller NUCs that we have seen over the years (like the Bean Canyon NUC and Hades Canyon NUC we reviewed). We do not have all of the details just yet... Read more...
Intel has been cranking out miniature Next Unit of Computing (NUC) systems for several years now, dating back to when Sandy Bridge was relevant in the CPU space. These small form factor (SFF) PCs keep getting better with each new generation. So, what's next? Well, based on an extensive leak from a user in China, Intel is readying a NUC 9 Extreme codenamed Ghost Canyon, which will utilize a concept it recently showed off called "The Element." This particular configuration measures 238 x 216 x 96 mm (5.0L), so it is a bit bigger than some earlier NUCs (the largest one to date, in fact). Buyers will have a choice of three different 9th generation Intel 45W processor options, including a Core i9-9980HK,... Read more...
It's pretty amazing how much computing power manufacturers can cram into increasingly smaller enclosures these days. Intel's Next Unit of Computing (NUC) line is one of the better representations of this, as its pint-sized Hades Canyon NUC wields an 8th generation Core i7-8809G quad-core processor with AMD Radeon RX Vega M GH graphics. Looking ahead, a leaked roadmap reveals Intel is prepping a new NUC, one that will feature up to an 8-core/16-thread CPU inside. Whether in a tower desktop or a tiny system like the NUC, having 8 cores and 16 threads at your disposal allows for some work (or play) to be done. In this case, Intel's Ghost Canyon X NUC, as it is called, will boast quad-core, 6-core,... Read more...
