Asus has announced their first ROG branded NUC SFF PC. Featuring a 2.5L design that can be turned vertically or horizontally, the ultra-SFF PC includes either a RTX 4060 Mobile or RTX 4070 Mobile. CPU selection is either the Intel Core Ultra 7 155H or Core Ultra 9 185H. Both include ARC based iGPUs meaning there will likely be full support for Quicksync acceleration. RAM is up to 64GB (2 x 32GB) DDR5-5600 SO-DIMMs, and there are three Gen4x4 M.2 slots for storage. WiFi 6E support is standard, as is a 2.5G ethernet port. Power is provided via a 330 watt power brick.
Asus states that they have designed the ROG NUC to boost the CPU up to 65 watts, and the GPU up to 140 watts. At 140 watts, the RTX 4070 mobile is pushing TimeSpy scores in the 12,000 to 13,000 range which is in the same ballpark as the RTX 4060Ti desktop and RTX 2080 desktop for reference. VRAM should be 8GB on a 128bit bus.
This is the first real Asus attempt at sub-4L ultra-SFF gaming since the old ROG GR8.
That machine still sells for a good amount of money despite having very dated hardware. They also released a 4L version in 2017 with a GTX 1060.
