CES 2018 just wrapped up but our series of articles covering the biggest tech show on earth are still dropping! Check them out HERE.

Although Intel is in a middle of a very large security debacle right now, it doesn’t stop the chipmaker to release their latest line of products at CES. Aside from announcing their new chips made in partnership with rival AMD, they also released their newest NUC which is immensely popular due to its capabilities in a small size.

Formerly known as ‘Hades Canyon’ (should have kept that codename instead), the new Intel NUC is packed with 8th Gen Intel Core i7 processor with AMD Radeon RX Vega M graphics inside, making it more suitable for portable gaming, and VR.

Among the notable features are dual Thunderbolt 3 ports as well as dual Gigabit Ethernet ports. A HDMI port is also on the unit’s front, conveniently placed, making it easy to plug in a VR headset.

The new NUC will come in two configurations, namely NUC8i7HVK and NUC8i7HNK. The NUC8i7HVK is equipped with the new 8th Gen Intel Core processor with the Radeon RX Vega M GH graphics (the unlocked version), while the NUC8i7HNK uses the 8th Gen Intel Core processor with the Radeon RX Vega M GL graphics.
