At CES, Intel announced that arc sharp discrete graphics cards have been shipped, winning more than 50 notebook and desktop designs, and also disclosed two new NUC mini machines, codenamed Serpent Canyon and Alder County, which will also be equipped with Arc graphics cards.
They will be the first 3I platforms.
If the Dragon Canyon NUC 12 Extreme also uses Arc graphics cards, it is three sets of 3I at once.
The code name Alder County doesn't seem to fit nuc convention, but according to the latest account,It is actually the successor to "King County", which is the Intel NUC notebook reference kit "NUC X15"。
As a reference design, NUC X15 itself did not enter the market, but for manufacturers as a benchmark platform, such as Weigang's XPG Xenia game book, which is this program, equipped with Tiger Lake 11th generation Core H series processors, up to the highest optional i7-11800H, Mechanical Revolution, Shenzhou and so on also have similar products.
NuC X15 supports discrete graphics, up to the highest option of NVIDIA RTX 3070 Mobile, but this time, Alder County in addition to the upgradeAlder Lake-P 12th Generation Core Mobile(TDP 28W), also add arc alchemist discrete graphics.
Serpent Canyon will correspond to NUC 12Nuc 12 Enthusiast was exposed last August, when the word "Serpen" could be seen in the upper right corner, which obviously corresponded to Serpent Canyon.
Graphics part It is also the Arc Alchemist series,The video memory capacity is 8GB, 12GB, 16GB GDDR6 and other different versions, and the interface is equipped with HDMI 2.1, DisplayPort 2.0, and mini DisplayPort 2.0This will also be the first graphics card to support the DisplayPort 2.0 specs.
In other respects, the processor is optional 12th generation i7/i5, memory up to 64GB DDR4-3200, hard disk two M.2 2280 PCIe 4.0 x4 NVMe SSD, one M.2 2280 PCIe 3.0 x4 NVMe SSD or one SATA SSD, optional Optane M10/H10 accelerator disk, as well as 2.5 Gigabit network card, Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5.x, front and rear two Thunderbolt 4, front and rear USB 3.1 Gen2.
