New Intel NUC processor-based Coffee Lake

    On the Intel site, the technical specification of new generation NUC mini computers based on Intel Core Coffee Lake processors has appeared . A total of 8 models are described, of which 3 are PC ready for operation, and the remaining 5 are basic kits for assembly. By tradition, a series of 3 NUC ​​forms a vertical lineup: the youngest, middle and top configurations. Under the cut - a description of the new line in the form of tables and figures.

    The document does not contain “live” photos, but even from the schematic images it can be seen that the new NUC as two drops of water are similar to the previous ones (of the classic series, without skulls). The functionality also has not undergone fundamental changes: we are seeing a “technical”, evolutionary change of platform.

    Names of models, as usual, break eyes. These are NUC8i3BEK, NUC8i3BEH, NUC8i3BEHXF, NUC8i5BEK, NUC8i5BEH, NUC8i5BEHXF, NUC8i7BEH and NUC8i7BEHXG. Perhaps someone will want to understand this intricacies of numbers and letters - we will help. i3 / i5 / i7 is a processor type, K is a thin case, N is a thick one (with the option of installing 2.5 ”drives), XF is a 16 GB Intel Optane module, XG is a 32 GB module. Yes, Intel Optane already included. And now - the promised signs.

    The technical specification, of course, does not say anything about the price of the new Intel NUC, but there is no reason to believe that it will be very different from that of the corresponding models of the previous generation.

    It is a pity, but again we did not see fanless options.
