Intel phantom canyon nuc

Details of Intel's next-generation NUC (also known as Phantom Canyon) have been announced. These NUC models will combine Tiger Lake CPU and Xe GPU. FanlessTech has disclosed the details of these NUCs, and the company has also released a list of specifications.

It looks like we will have two Phantom Canyon NUC: Phantom NUC 11 Extreme and Panther Canyon NUC 11 Performance.

Both NUC will use Tiger Lake CPU. Tiger Lake is the continuation of the Intel 10nm Ice Lake generation. Tiger Lake will use improved process nodes and improved designs above 10 nanometers. The

Panther model will be aimed at mainstream PC users, while the Extreme will be aimed at PC enthusiasts who want the best performance and speed.

The NUC will be powered by Intel’s Tiger LakeU 28W processor, which will be a Core i7 or i5 variant.

For GPU, you will have an integrated Xe GPU, but there will also be an optional discrete graphics option. Although we don't know much about the GPU, it looks like it will have 6GB or 8GB of graphics memory. The

also includes DDR43200 SODIMMs up to 64GB, two M.2 slots, and an NVMe PCIe x4 Gen 3 port.

In terms of connectivity and ports, the Extreme model will also include HDMI 2.0b, Mini DisplayPort, Intel 2.5 Gbps LAN, Intel WirelessAX 201, IEEE 802.11ax, WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.0 and Thunderbolt 3 ports on the front and rear. .

As you can see from the posted images, it has an eye-catching design with a shiny skull logo; We have seen it at Hades Canyon and Skull Canyon NUC in the past.

This NUC will also share a Tiger LakeU CPU with Core i3, i5 or i7 variant SKUs. The

integrated graphics card will be Intel Xe, but there will be no discrete graphics options like the Extreme model, so there are fewer opportunities to improve performance.

It appears that the performance model will have all the same input / output ports. The main difference is the case design, which doesn't quite match Extreme's iconic glowing skull design.

Although Intel's new NUC does not have an official release date, they are all expected to ship later this year. So if you want to add to your home streaming setup or want a small PC, then any of these NUCs seem to fit the bill perfectly.

If we hear more information about these NUCs or get a confirmed release date, we will definitely notify you in time.
