Intel, the new NUC with Tiger Lake will arrive soon?
The 11th generation Intel Core “Tiger Lake” processors have already joined some compact desktop PCs, but according to some unofficial information, it seems that soon we will see the new NUC 11 appear on the market as well. Mainstream systems, codenamed Panther Canyon, equipped with quad-core Tiger Lake-U processors, are expected to be available later this month, while more advanced machines with Tiger Lake-U and a dedicated GPU are expected to hit the market later this month. in the first quarter of next year. FanlessTech colleagues reported that the NUC 11 Performance “Panther Canyon” is on track to hit store shelves this month, but it's unclear in which regions and at what cost.

The first details are emerged well before Intel formally introduced its 11th generation “Tiger Lake” Core CPUs. PCs were originally expected to launch concurrently with the first wave of notebooks with Tiger Lake, but due to the ongoing pandemic and other problems, the Santa Clara company had to change its plans.

The Panther Canyon system will utilize Intel Tiger Lake-U processor with up to four Willow Cove cores, Intel Iris Xe integrated GPU with up to 96 Execution Units, AV1 codec support and BT.2020 color space. So it will be a system that can offer better performance, both for personal productivity and in the multimedia field. The other technical features are quite typical by today's standards: support for up to 64GB of DDR4-3200 memory, an M.2-2280 SSD with a PCIe 4.0 x4 interface (or an Intel Optane Memory M10 drive), 2.5 GbE, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5, USB 3.0 Type-A ports, two Thunderbolt 4 ports, four video outputs (HDMI 2.1, mDP 1.4, TB4 connectors) and a headphone audio jack.

The most advanced NUC 11 Extreme 'Phantom Canyon' - rumored to be a successor to the NUC 8 Extreme Gaming-oriented 'Hades Canyon' - will offer significantly higher performance in video games thanks to a dedicated GPU, but will only be available from Q1 2021, according to FanlessTech.

Phantom Canyon will continue to use Intel's Tiger Lake CPU -U with up to four cores, but unlike its younger sibling, the machine will also include a dedicated third-party GPU. Based on leaks, Intel was considering using NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1660 or RTX 2060 graphics processor, but plans tend to change and the company may decide to use another GPU. The remaining technical features of the Phantom Canyon are similar to those of Panther Canyon.

Since the information comes from an unofficial source, we just have to wait for a statement from Intel to confirm or deny these rumors.
