Not yet released, but it's coming...





I am looking forward to more details on this platform, but so far it appears that it will support Alder Lake-P, which means you'll have TB4 on-die, and a fantastic Xe iGpu. Unfortunately only 1x M.2 2280 4.0.

While that is good, I am also wondering if it (or some other Mini-pc) will support Alder Lake-H (45w base, 115w turbo) as that could be the perfect blend of power and efficiency. Almost as good as a desktop processor, but much more efficient while having native TB4 and Xe graphics (2x as good as UHD770!!!), which Desktop-based Alder Lake mini PC's like the Deskmini won't have.

Chiphell had some more info about the Wall Street Canyon including some benchmarks. Seems the top version will come with an i7 1260P @ up to 28W

I assume the higher TDP CPUs might go in the Serpent Canyon NUCs together with Intel's new dedicated ARC Graphics - I just hope they've come up with a more pleasant exterior design on the final units... XD

That's exciting. I agree they don't look nearly as good as the Nuc 11 Enthusiast which had a slim console shape with a 2060. These are chunky, perhaps because Arc is kinda big.

How many more years before they ditch the skull on the side...

One of the aesthetically nicer NUCs for me is still the 7th gen, with the customizable LED ring and nice black/dark-gray colors:



The newer generations have had a decrease in build quality.

It's quite sad, looking at the sleek Phantom / Hades Canyon compared to that thing.

Perfect form factor... 1.3L console shape with discrete gpu

So it looks like Asrock's "Nuc Box" is one of the first to market with Alder Lake mobile on their barebones Industrial board, "NUC-1260P". Looking at the specs of the board, one difference from the consumer Nuc Pro version is that there is no Thunderbolt certification yet, but otherwise it looks pretty good. We know that Alder Lake mobile has TB4 on die, so I'm confused whether a Thunderbolt device would work or not. Anyway, it has 8 PCI-e Lanes but only 1x 2280 m.2 with the other m.2 for wireless chip.

The board: https://www.asrockind.com/en-gb/NUC-1260P

The "Nuc Box":
It is supposed to come into stock at Newegg this week at $649, a bit of an increase if compared to the $499 of prior gen Nuc Pro barebones.
