The sector of the NUC or powerful mini PCs is very active lately, today we want to inform you about a new leak that presents the Intel NUC Crimson Canyon model that has Cannon Lake-U cores manufactured in 10nm a novelty compared to the 14nm of the current Kaby Lake-G. In addition, this model will integrate an AMD Vega GPU with HBM2 memory, the same type of processors found in the Intel NUC Hades Canyon, the new Chuwi HiGame or the latest to announce Beelink KB-G1.
The data of the new Intel NUC Crimson Canyon are still somewhat confusing but have already been listed in some stores with references NUC8I3CYSM2 and NUC8I3CYSM3 for models with 8 GB of RAM and NUC8I3CYSN2 and NUC8I3CYSN3 with 4 GB of RAM, all mounted a mechanical hard drive of 1 TB. In some stores have already been listed for a price between 400 and 450€, surely these models are in the two classic formats of the NUC one higher that allows to mount a 2.5″ disk and another more compact that can only mount an M.2 disk inside.
The processor found in these NUCs would be the Intel Core i3-8121U a model manufactured in the new 10nm process that is not yet officially listed by Intel but would have two cores and four wires working at 2.4 GHz. Inside the package of this processor as we have seen we have an AMD Radeon 500 Vega GPU manufactured at 14nm that seems to integrate 2 GB of dedicated graphics memory HBM2. This NUC comes with a 90 W power adapter and as it can not be otherwise will have active ventilation.
