Intel’s family of NUC kits has become a popular option for enthusiasts seeking small form factor systems with core components that can be easily customized and upgraded. As part of Computex 2021’s opening day of festivities, Intel previewed an upcoming 8-liter NUC 11 Extreme Kit code named “Beast Canyon” that not only supports the latest Core i5, i7, and i9 H-series processors but select full-length discrete graphics card as well. In addition to the compute unit specifications previously leaked by ChipHell, Intel’s new Beast Canyon will also feature a large skull graphic on the face lit by RGB lighting.
The […] Ghost Canyon NUC occupied just 4.9 liters, so this version is 60 percent larger, but it’s still smaller than many mini-ITX cases. For context, Cooler Master’s MasterBox NR200P and Fractal Designs’ Core 500 mini-ITX cases each sport a 20-liter volume, more than twice what Beast Canyon carries.
