Intel is updating its Next Unit of Computing (NUC) lineup of miniature computers with its 11th Gen processors, and it’s again including a gaming-focused model, the NUC 11 Enthusiast. Intel has also added a NUC Pro line and a NUC 11 board meant to be integrated into future computers. The NUC 11 Enthusiast, codenamed “Phantom Canyon”, promises gaming performance with a 28W quad-core i7-1165G7 and a GeForce RTX 2060. It comes with 8GB of RAM and a modest 128GB SSD. It has lots of ports despite its diminutive size, including two Thunderbolt 4 ports, a 2.5GB Ethernet and six USB 3.2 type-A ports. Unlike the RAM and storage drive, the graphics processor is not removable, but you can upgrade your GPU through one of the Thunderbolt 4 ports. Configuration options start at USD1,350 for the kit version, where you provide the RAM, the storage drive and the OS. Available in March.

The Verge, Mitchell Clark, “Intel updates its NUC lineup, including a follow-up to its Hades Canyon gaming mini-PC.”
