Intel Updates Its NUC Systems

February 12, 2018 by   | Category: Computing

Intel is updating its NUCs with new models including the “Hades Canyon” gaming model (with AMD graphics), a “Bean Canyon” model sporting 8th-Gen Intel Coffee Lake chips, and a new entry-level set of “June Canyon” computers with low-power Celeron and Pentium chips based on the new Gemini Lake architecture.

Intel has posted technical specs for the new NUC7CJY NUC kit to its website which means we will probably see the June Canyon models out first.

Chipzilla is also talking about a NUC7JYB board, which is the motherboard and processor without any case, memory, or storage.

Lillyputing said that this would be a 4? x 4? motherboard with a soldered 10-watt processor. Systems will be available with a choice of a Celeron J4005 dual-core processor with Intel HD 600 graphics or a Pentium Silver J5005 quad-core chip with Intel HD 605 graphics.

June Canyon PCs can support up to 8GB of DDR4-2133 or DDR4-2400 memory with two SODIMM slots. The NUC7CJY kit is expected to arrive with 4GB of RAM preinstalled, as well as 32GB of eMMC flash storage.

Other features include:

2.5-inch drive bay for HDD or SSD
SD card slot
2 HDMI 2.0a ports (4k60 support
3.5mm audio jack
mini TOSLINK jack for 5.1 channel audio
Gigabit Ethernet
802.11ac WiFI
Bluetooth 5.0
4 USB 3.0 ports
dual digital mic array for far-field voice detection

The June Canyon NUC may be low power, but it’s not fan-less as there’s a fan placed over the motherboard to keep the system from overheating during use.
