The Tiger Lake processors are some of the most impressive in Intel’s product range in recent years. But these are mobile CPUs, and their desktop counterparts are not to be expected. But there is a way out – a mini-PC.
In particular, Intel is preparing new NUCs with Tiger Lake processors at the core. This generation will be called Tiger Canyon or Panther Canyon, depending on the positioning, and the models themselves will be released under the name – NUC 11.
Now we almost know the details about NUC 11 Pro (Tiger Canyon), focused on the commercial segment. Such mini-PCs will be based on Tiger Lake CPU from Core i3-1115G4 to Core i7-1185G7. This mini-PC will support up to 64GB of RAM, an M.2 drive, a Wi-Fi 6 adapter, and a set of ports will include USB 2.0, USB 3.2 (x3), USB-C with Thunderbolt 4 (x2), HDMI 2.1 (x2), and RJ45. As an option, two additional USB 2.0 ports and one RJ45 port are available. The dimensions of the mini-PC will be 117 x 112 x 54 mm.
