“Intel Ghost Canyon will support discrete graphic support, and it’ll offer desktop-level performance and gaming experience in just 5 liters weight”
Intel has given a sneak peek at much-anticipated the Ghost Canyon NUC (Next Unit of Computing) at the CES 2020 show. It has support for Intel’s Compute Element system that allows for CPU upgrades thereby making it modular gaming desktop PC, and the company says it will be available up to Intel H-series Core i9 processor. Ghost Canyon NUC will support discrete graphics and Intel says that it’ll offer desktop-level performance and gaming experience in just 5 liters weight.
Considering Intel’s history with peripherals on NUCs, it is likely to come barebones, and its partners will be providing the components like memory, storage, and operating system as well. Design-wise, the Ghost Canyon NUC has the blower-style heatsink and fan to vent out any heat and cool the CPU during extreme workloads. There’s also a mesh on the entire side of the machine that will cool the setup if a GPU card is added.
Talking about the ports, you have four USB 3.0 Ports, two RJ45 ports, an HDMI port, an audio combo port, two Thunderbolt ports, and power plug for built-in PSU on the rear-side. On the front, there is a power button, dual USB ports, a SD card reader, and an audio combo port. Unfortunately, Intel hasn’t revealed much about the Ghost Canyon NUC just yet, but with CES 2020 kicking off, it will likely reveal more information, including the complete hardware specifications later this week.
