Intel nuc 11 extreme clock speeds
A benchmark test of one of Intel's upcoming NUC 11 Extreme devices has been found online, and the results look promising. These results were discovered by HardwareLeaks, and one of the models is equipped with a Tiger Lake U quad-core processor and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti graphics card. Intel
will divide these upcoming NUC 11 devices into two categories. There will be the NUC 11 Performance category for main users and the NUC 11 Extreme category designed for gamers, enthusiasts and advanced users. These will be equipped with discrete graphics options and, if the leaks are to be believed, they can be built into the process node over 10nm. The benchmark test detected by
comes from the popular benchmarking platform 3DMark. The Tiger LakeU chip in NUC 11 Extreme is called a quad-core eight-wire design, with a 2.3 GHz base clock and an impressive boost clock up to 4.4 GHz.
is better, chance is. This is just an engineering sample, these figures can be set for further improvement in the future. Since this has surpassed the largest 4.1 GHz boost found in Ice Lake's predecessors, this looks like a very promising hardware. In addition, last year there were some leaks pointing to 28W TDP and support for PCIe 4.0. One of the main selling points of the
Tiger LakeU is that it is rumored to be equipped with a Gen12 Xe discrete graphics card. Although there is not much information yet, this will be a positive addition to the already impressive chip. The reference unit uses a mobile version of Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, with a slightly slower clock speed, allowing it to operate in the 80W power range.
In general, it looks like a very promising hardware, easily in the same field as the next-generation game consoles. However, we believe that they do not match the power of AMD Navi 2x GPUs used in the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 settings, especially when running only GTX 1660 Ti.
However, there is still time for this situation to change, and most leaks and rumors are worth checking out. Can we see a higher performance card activated? How much will the base clock and pulse clock rise? We must wait now to see these responses.
