Intel to introduce quad-core Mini-PC for gaming


At this years CES, Intel introduced refreshes to its NUC Mini-PCs, making the change over to its updated Skylake processing chips (still dual-core however), changing support from DDR3 to DDR4 RAM, replacing the mini HDMI port with a full size HDMI port, a mini DisplayPort 1.2 port, gigabit Ethernet, an IR receiver, and a headphone jack.

However the biggest news comes from Intel’s confirmation that it is indeed working on a high-performance, quad-core version of their NUC mini-PC designed for gaming, codenamed Skull Canyon. This NUC will be powered by a 45W Skylake quad-core i7 processor with an Iris Pro GPU. It will also support Thunderbolt 3 across USB-C so users can connect an external graphics card dock.

Pricing and availability has yet to be announced, but the regular dual-core NUCs are expected to be available next month, and the Skull Canyon of course at a later date.
