Next Unit of Computing (NUC), a small barebone developed by Intel, is a good way to easily build a space-saving desktop PC with a very compact casing, but the cost is high from homegrown PC users. It is not suitable for gaming applications because of the low degree of freedom that makes it impossible to replace CPUs or incorporate graphic boards for PCs.
However, the latest Ghost Canyon NUC brought by Intel to the home appliance trade show CES 2020 held in Las Vegas, U.S.A., expands its casing to a size close to the desktop version of Kojien, and reaches up to 5 GHz Core i9- It is equipped with 9980HK and can be equipped with a graphic board for PC up to 203mm in length. In addition, it is said that CPU upgrade became possible for the first time as Intel NUC.
Given the price of NUC so far, it is easy to expect that this Ghost Canyon will be more expensive than a comparable desktop PC. For gamers who want to bring their PC and enjoy online multiplayer with friends, it seems to be a very attractive form factor.
Intel only introduced Ghost Canyon's touch at CES 2020, but plans to reveal more details later this week.
By the way, unlike previous NUCs, Ghost Canyon has a built-in power supply inside the housing. It may be good news for those who thought the AC adapter was in the way, but you may be concerned about the availability of replacement parts when the power supply unit breaks down.
