    That poor i3-8121U, the CPU which exists only so Intel bosses can collect their 10nm bonuses. Consider this: it's a 10nm CPU at 2.2-3.2 GHz so why does it need 15W when the 14nm i3-8145U at 2.1-3.9 also only wants 15W...?

    The reported gate and metal pitches on the dissected i3-8121U from Intels 10nm(54 nm and 36 nm respectively) are more like the 7nm numbers on everyone else's which was already common knowledge. So it's a good pipe cleaner if nothing else to ramp the line.

    The i3-8145U is also configurable for TDP up to 25W so maybe not an apple to apple comparison really.

    thanks for the heads up - this could be very interesting to hackintosh folks since there are no macOS drivers for amd graphics on the last NUC the hades canyon

    the 540 seems to be about on par with higher-end 2016 macbooks and about 1/2 the specs of the hades canyon integrated "vega" gpu

    could make a nice little mini box that can smoothly drive hidpi screens
