  • Intel Tiger Lake i3, i5 and i7 CPUs
  • Intel Xe GPU
  • Two DDR4-3200 SO-DIMM slots (64GB max)
  • M.2 22×80 PCIe x4 Gen4 NVMe
  • HDMI 2.1 port
  • Mini DisplayPort 1.4 port
  • Front and rear Thunderbolt 3 ports
  • Intel 1000/2500 Mbps Ethernet port

Certainly an interesting product! Release date is somewhere on the second half of this year and I expect it to be closer to the Christmas as Comet Lake NUC was just released…

    I realize I’m probably in the minority here, and that this is more down to Intel’s chip schedules and languishing Atom development in general, but I’d much rather have a successor to the cheap NUCs than yet another $300-$700 NUC that is marginally faster than the one before it

      I agree, it would be great to see the successor of the Gemini Lake NUC. The availability of the Pentium model has been poor for a long time. Gemini Lake Refresh doesn’t offer much more than the Gemini Lake did though… Unfortunately I haven’t heard about anything when it comes to lower end NUC releases this year.

    If you look carefully at your pics, there’s a lightning bolt next to the USB C – does this indicate USB -C PD, so no more requirement of a power adapter?

    • Olli says:

      I thought so initially, but I think that’s the Thunderbolt logo to signify that the port will provide Thunderbolt as well.

      • NucFan says:

        Well, that’s me disapointed, we can hope they’ll adopt tech from 3 years ago eventually.

        (Intel do know people want this right?)

  3. Ref nuc says:

    So this is nuc 10 and the one that just came out is nuc 9?

    I brought my nuc8i3 last year take max 32gb ram

    Iv seen there is a nuc with two hdmi ports also, and where are we on the gpu upgrades ?

    Thank you

    • TheBrinkOfTomorrow says:

      No, this likely to be NUC11, as Tiger Lake are likely to be branded 11th generation Core chip.

      NUC10 is already out; it’s the “Frost Canyon” NUC family, featuring 10th generation Comet Lake chips.

  4. Tom says:

    When there are front and rear Thunderbolt 3 ports, why does only the rear port has the Thunderbolt logo ?

    • nucblognet says:

      These are very preliminary renderings. It might be that the logo is just missing from the front or that the front port is only an USB 3 Type-C port. Too early to say.

    Intel Nuc can’t be far behind:
    “ASRock announces Tiger Lake based NUC”
    No pricing or availability information was provided for ASRock’s Tiger Lake based products
