Some time ago, Intel introduced a new generation of personal computers to the NUC (Next Unit of Computing) family. The eleventh generation of the newcomers is undoubtedly something special, as it allows the installation of a stand-alone graphics card. Although the case volume is only eight liters, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 graphics card is available by default.
The new generation of integrated PC Intel NUC (12th generation) will bring some interesting changes. First, the NUC 12 (Serpent Canyon) computer systems will be equipped with an Intel Core i7-12700H (“Alder Lake”) processor, which converts data into 14 processor cores. Additionally, Intel will replace Nvidia graphics cards with its own A770M “Arc Alchemist” graphics solution, which promises a lot, at least on paper.
The Intel A770M “Arc Alchemist” graphics card is equipped with an ACM-G10 graphics core containing 32 Xe-Core processors. In addition, up to 16 GB of GDDR6 graphics memory will be available. The power consumption is expected to be between 120W and 150W. This should be enough to run graphic content and the most demanding computer games. The Intel NUC 12 (Serpent Canyon) computer system is expected to be available before fall.
