Intel announces 'Hades Canyon' NUCs at CES 2018

Intel announces 'Hades Canyon' NUCs at CES 2018

Codenamed "Hades Canyon", the new Intel NUC comes in two versions, the NUC8i7HVK and the NUC8i7HNK and is packed with Intel's new 8th-gen core i7 processor with Radeon RX Vega Graphics. The NUC (Next Unit of Computing) form factor computer is a mini PC that has the power to run VR applications in addition to fulfilling other home entertainment needs. Intel and AMD have yet to reveal the list of laptops that will be powered by the new chips and GPU, but more information is expected to be revealed in the coming months.

"Great for VR enthusiasts and workload-heavy content creators, it will be Intel's smallest premium VR-capable system in the market", Intel said. The company is apparently telling people that the custom Radeon RX Vega M can match the gaming performance of a GeForce GTX 1060 Max-Q. Of course, nobody has had a chance to test that performance claim just yet, but we hope to soon.

The NUC8i7HVK comes with Radeon RX Vega M GH graphics along with a 100W quad-core 8th generation Intel Core i7-8809G CPU clocked at 3.1GHz and 4.2GHz turbo mode, according to a blog post by Intel. This is the model that Intel is pitching as being VR-ready. The HNK is bundled with the lower-end Vega GL chip, which isn't quite as fast, but works with Core i5 as well as i7 processors, and should be a bit cheaper.

The NUC8i7HVK and the NUC8i7HNK will have HDMI ports on the front and back for VR headset plug and play and dual gigabit Ethernet ports.

Both models support up to 32GB of dual-channel DDR4-2400 SODIMM memory. Other video outputs include DisplayPort 1.3 through two rear Mini DisplayPort ports, and two rear Thunderbolt USB-C ports.

The consumer version, Bean Canyon, will ship in the middle of the year, Intel's John Detherage told me at a hands-on event at the company's CES booth.
