Intel has announced that the NUC Hades Canyon mini-PC has been discontinued. The model made its debut two years ago on 8th generation Intel Core Kaby Lake-G processors.
Mini-PC Hades Canyon replaced Skull Canyon and became the first NUC with processors created not only by Intel. Kaby Lake-G processors were a rare example when such competitors as AMD and Intel joined forces. These processors use Intel Kaby Lake microarchitecture and AMD Vega graphics.
Intel decommissioned the Kaby Lake-G processors last October. So cancelling NUC Hades Canyon was only a matter of time.
Intel has published a new Product Change Notification (PCN) on its website – NUC8i7HNK and NUC8i7HVK kits have been cancelled. Both are based on quad-core Kaby Lake-G – NUC8i7HNK based on Core i7-8705G and NUC8i7HVK based on Core i7-8809G.
Of course, Intel NUC8i7HNK and NUC8i7HVK will not disappear from the shelves instantly. Intel gave customers the opportunity to place their last orders by November 27th. The last deliveries will be made on January 29th, 2021.
