Intel has announced new NUC kits and NUC mini PCs featuring 8th Gen Intel Core processors. The new models are meant to provide more power for a wide range of mainstream computing needs.
The new Intel NUC kits (NUC8i7BEH, NUC8i5BEH, NUC8i5BEK, NUC8i3BEH, NUC8i3BEK) are based on the 8th Gen Intel Core i7, i5 and i3 processors featuring Intel Iris graphics with eDRAM that can power home theatre systems, drive content creator boxes and serve as a personal voice assistant. The new Intel NUC kits allow integrators and DIYers to customise with their choice of storage, memory and operating system.
Meant to offer the right balance of performance and affordability, the new Intel NUC mini PCs (NUC8i3CYSM, NUC8i3CYSN) are an affordable mainstream gaming option for playing some of today’s most popular games at 1080p, including League of Legends, TF2 and CS:GO. These NUCs are powered by the 8th Gen Intel Core i3-8121U processors and feature discrete graphics. They come configured with 1TB of storage, either 8GB or 4GB of memory, and Windows 10 Home and include Intel’s Wireless-AC 9560 CNVi 802.11ac WiFi + Bluetooth 5 solution, two HDMI 2.0a outputs, and four USB 3.0 ports – all in a form factor that fits in the palm of your hand and can easily be hidden behind a monitor or mounted under a desk to save space.
Intel NUCs are mini PCs that offer high-performance capabilities in a space-saving design and are perfectly suited for home theatre, home office, entry-level gaming or as a replacement for desktops when space is a concern. These new NUCs offer a number of new options that will fit a wide range of computing needs.
The new Intel NUC kits and Intel NUC mini PCs will be available worldwide through Intel distributors and through online retailers beginning in September.
