Didn't see a thread about this yet so wanted to start one. Intel's successor to the Skull Canyon NUC: http://nucblog.net/2018/01/released-hades-canyon-nuc-is-the-most-powerful-nuc-ever/ https://techreport.com/review/33042...ors-with-radeon-rx-vega-m-graphics-revealed/4 http://www.zdnet.com/article/ces-2018-intel-unveils-hades-canyon-nuc-vr-mini-pc/ https://www.anandtech.com/show/1222...s-are-official-799999-shipping-in-spring-2018 Preorders at Simply NUC, I think they're using a placeholder date of "March 31" on their site: https://www.simplynuc.com/hades-canyon/ Two models: NUC8i7HVK, $999, with i7-8809G (4C/8T, 3.1GHz base, 4.2GHz turbo, unlocked) and Radeon RX Vega M GH (24 CUs, 64PPC, 4GB HBM2, ~200GB/s bandwidth) 100W package TDP NUC8i7HNK, $799, with i7-8705G (4C/8T, 3.1GHz base, 4.1GHz turbo) and Radeon RX Vega M GL (20 CUs, 32 PPC 4GB HBM2, ~180GB/s bandwidth) 65W package TDP lots of IO (2x USB-C thunderbolt 3.0, 7USB ports, dual mDP outputs, dual HDMI 2.0b (one front), two NICs, 8265 wifi-ac, 2x m.2 slots for SSDs and support for DDR4-2400 (couldn't find anything about higher mem clocks on the unlocked version). Of other potential interest: a little bigger than the Skull Canyon system but with more capable cooling, so given the extra TDP I'm hoping maybe similar noise footprint to the Skull Canyon system for the 65W version here. Maybe better? 65W one could make for a really nice living room PC, 1080p gaming should be easy for it, it's got the chops to play back HDR, 4k stuff, plenty of connectivity for additional storage, etc. One thing I'm not thrilled about is the price, with the NUCs it keeps going up and up, to the point where you could easily build a more capable system for less than the cost of the barebones box now, even keeping it fairly small (Sugo case or similar). Adding OS, RAM and an SSD to the "cheap" version gets base price close to $1000. Anyways, they're reported to be launching in Q2, with the 65W version first and the 100W version to follow.
