Intel Tiger Lake processors are very good in all aspects. This is really a new generation of chips, which everyone has been waiting for a long time. Unfortunately, Tiger Lake is a mobile CPU, i.e. it will not be possible to build a system unit based on it. Or is there still some possibility?
Actually the desktop PC with Tiger Lake-U is a reality, even if it is the nearest future. Firstly, Intel itself, judging by early data, is preparing NUC mini-PC based on Tiger Lake, and secondly, other manufacturers will also adopt these CPUs.
At least the corresponding mini-PC will release ASRock. As reported, the company is already preparing UCFF models on NUC 1100 series motherboards.
They will allow to use Tiger Lake processors, starting from the Celeron 6305, which has not been announced yet, and finishing with the top Core i7. Mini-PCs will offer two slots for RAM, an M.2 slot for SSD, SATA III and active cooling. A photo of one of the boards also shows four USB 3 ports, one of which supports Thunderbolt 3, two USB-C, HDMI, DisplayPort and a pair of RJ45.
