Not long after Microsoft issued a bevy of security updates for its products during Patch Tuesday, Intel is holding its own "patch party" for its hardware and software products. Products affected include Intel's lineup of NUC mini PCs and Compute Sticks along with a few of its software utilities. On the NUC front, Intel issued an advisory describing a vulnerability (CVE-2019-11140) in the device firmware that can lead to an escalation of privileges or denial of service attack. Intel traced the exploit back to "insufficient session validation" that could allow such attacks to take place. The security concern has been given a CVSS Base Score of 7.5, which is considered high severity. Affected... Read more...
Last week, we brought you news of an alleged new Xeon-based NUC coming from Intel that is being developed under the codename Quartz Canyon. This would be the first in Intel's long line of NUC small form-factor PCs to feature a Xeon-class processor. Now we're learning of another new NUC in the pipeline, and it's called Phantom Canyon. Phantom Canyon will reportedly be powered by Intel's upcoming Tiger Lake processor architecture (4 cores, 8 threads), which is a 10nm+ successor to the Ice Lake processor that are just now rolling out of the gate. Tiger Lake will again have a new CPU architecture, and more importantly, it will feature Intel's new Xe graphics core. Intel Hades... Read more...
It appears as though Intel is readying a new next unit of computing (NUC) mini PC, this time time with a Xeon processor option. Codenamed "Quartz Canyon," a leaked slide indicates Intel is targeting entry workstation tasks, including content creation, CAD and manufacturing design, financial services, and other similar chores. Assuming the slide is real, the Quartz Canyon NUC will be configurable with up to an 8-core Xeon E or 9th generation Core i7 vPro processor. The slide also indicates support for high-end desktop graphics cards (possibly NVIDIA GeForce RTX or Quadro GPUs), ECC and Optane memory modules, dual Thunderport and dual Ethernet connectivity, and Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) integration.

Intel has embraced small form factor systems for many years. Whether it be high-end mini-PCs like the Hades Canyon NUC, complete with discrete graphics for gamers, or ultra-tiny devices like the Compute Card, Intel has consistently pushed small form factor markets forward, for just about as long as ‘performance per watt’ has been a thing. The Hades Canyon NUC and Compute Card target some rather niche markets, however. For more mainstream, everyday computing applications, Intel’s standard 4"x4” NUC (Next Unit of Computing) systems are much more apropos, and the Intel NUC8i7BEH we’ll be showing you here may just be the best all-around unit yet. The Intel NUC8i7BEH... 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...
Earlier this month, retailer SimplyNUC let slip that Intel would be releasing a fresh round of Crimson Canyon NUCs based around 10nm Cannon Lake architecture. Although we've seen 10nm Cannon Lake processors make their way in limited quantities to a low-volume Lenovo notebook for the Chinese market, this is the first time we've seen a 10nm launch for Intel's small form factor (SFF) products. Intel's Crimson Canyon NUC mini PCs are available in two configurations: NUC8i3CYSM and NUC8i3CYSN. The former comes with 8GB of LPDDR4-2666 memory, while the latter is equipped with just 4GB. Both systems use Intel's Core i3-8121U processor, which is from the 10nm Cannon Lake family. The processor... Read more...
We are pretty big fans of Intel's NUC (Next Unit of Computing) devices—it is nothing short of impressive how much power the company is able to pack inside a pint-sized form factor, the most recent of which is the Hades Canyon NUC with an Intel Core i7-8809G processor with Radeon RX Vega M GH graphics. That one is a tough act to follow, though rumor has it Intel is working on a 'Crimson Canyon' NUC that will pack a discrete AMD Radeon RX 500 GPU. Equally interesting is that the upcoming NUC is said to feature a Cannonlake processor. Specifically, it looks as though Intel is tapping its Core i3-8121U, a lower power Cannonlake-U chip that is set to be one of the company's first slices of silicon... Read more...
The Intel NUC8i7HVK, codenamed Hades Canyon, is an interesting product for a number of reasons. First, because it’s the most powerful NUC released to date and packs more I/O and connectivity than any of Intel’s previous mini-machines. It also has user-configurable lighting and activity LEDs and an aggressive design-language that looks great, in our opinion. Perhaps the most interesting thing about the Intel NUC8i7HVK, however, is that it’s powered by an Intel 8th Generation Core processor with integrated Radeon RX Vega M graphics. More specifically, the NUC8i7HVK is packing a Core i7-8809G with a Radeon RX Vega M GH GPU and 4GB of HBM2 memory, linked together on a single package... Read more...
Do you remember the Hades Canyon model NUC (Next Unit of Computing) that Intel introduced at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas earlier this year? Now two months later Intel is giving us a tantalizing peek into the system's guts, and specifically of the tiny motherboard that houses the device's 8th Generation Intel Core i7 processor and AMD Radeon RX Vega M graphics. Update, 3/29/2018 - Our full review Intel's new Hades Canyon NUC with Kaby Lake G processor and integrated AMD Radeon RX Vega graphics, is now live. So be sure to check that out.  Intel designed its latest NUC to support high-end virtual reality gaming, which is made possible through its partnership with AMD. While normally... Read more...
Intel first announced its Hades Canon NUC back at CES, and it packs quite a lot of power into a pint-sized package. While Intel NUCs don't generally get as much attention as they deserve, Hades Canyon is partially special given that it is powered by Intel's latest 8th generation Kaby Lake-G processors with on-package Radeon RX Vega M GPUs. Korean hardware site Playwares has posted the first benchmarks of Hades Canyon, which in this case is powered by a Core i7-8809G processor. This particular chip comes integrated with the most powerful version of AMD's Radeon RX Vega M, the "GH" SKU. With that in mind, take a look at the benchmarks below to get a feel for what kind of gaming performance to expect.... Read more...
Today is Intel's coming out part for the new 8th generation Core processors with on-package AMD Radeon RX Vega M graphics. It's the first [modern] collaboration between AMD and Intel for a high-performance processing package, and it looks like it will deliver some pretty stellar CPU and GPU performance for thin-and-light notebooks. However, Intel isn't just targeting the mobile sector with these 8th generation processors; it also has its eyes set on the desktop market. And to that end, the company has just pulled wraps of its next generation NUC. Developed under the codename Hades Canyon, Intel promises that this will be the most powerful NUC that it has ever delivered to customers, and occupies... Read more...
When Intel first unveiled its super-small NUC family of PCs, the company touted it as being the best thing to hit our desktops in quite a while, and in many ways, it's succeeded. NUCs pack an enormous amount of power under their hood given their size, and they can pretty much fit anywhere, provided there's ample room to breathe. Speaking of room to breathe, one of the few complaints NUC customers seem to ever mention is noise, and that's to be expected given the amount of power crammed into a small enclosure. That's unless you use a NUC that's built to be 100% fanless, such as the one that's just been announced from Intel "Platinum Partner" SimplyNUC, which has just released a new series built...

Intel is releasing a new line of "Next Unit of Computing" (NUC) devices built around its newly launched desktop Kaby Lake processor family unveiled at CES. While not a monumental leap over Skylake, Intel's Kaby Lake architecture brings with it a handful of architecture improvements and better integrated graphics, both of which are welcome upgrades in the fast growing mini PC sector.Early generation NUCs were interesting, though not necessarily exciting due to their limitations. However, NUCs have become increasingly capable little machines as of late, and for users in need of a system that can tackle general purpose computing chores, NUCs have become intriguing options. That is even more true... Read more...
