Intel to Offer 8-Core Xeon NUC

From PC Mag: If you like the idea of the tiny NUC barebones desktop PC, but want more performance and the option of adding a graphics card, Intel looks set to deliver exactly that with its next-generation Quartz Canyon NUC.

As Tom's Hardware reports, an Intel product brochure marked as "Confidential: For Internal and NDA Use Only" has leaked via Russian website Softline.

As you can see, the brochure advertises a new NUC which runs either an 8-core Xeon E or a 9th generation Core i7 vPro processor. The case is larger not only to allow these higher performance chips to be cooled, but also because Intel is allowing the addition of a graphics card. Although the brochure states "high-end desktop graphics cards" will be supported, the 500W power supply will limit the choice somewhat.

Other features the leaked brochure gives away include dual Thunderbolt and dual Ethernet ports as well as support for Intel's Optane memory and ECC RAM. Wireless connectivity is catered for by Intel's Wi-Fi 6 AX200.
