  • CES 2018: Intel unveils 'Hades Canyon' NUC VR mini-PC

Moorhead added that the new Intel + Radeon chips also pack enough punch to meet the performance requirements of virtual reality headsets such as Facebook Inc. -owned Oculus Rift and Microsoft Corp.'s Mixed Reality system. The first configuration features an unlocked configuration. Unfortunately Intel only dropped the top graphics parts into their most expensive mobile CPUs and that meant you would have to pay more for an Iris Pro laptop than for one with a more powerful discrete graphics card inside it. The new Intel NUC systems offer users up to 3 times the gaming performance when compared to the older Skull Canyon NUC systems launched past year.

NUC will be launched into the markets in two versions, namely NUC8i7HVK and NUC8i7HNK. This implies titles like Vermintide 2 would now be able to be played in high-determination in a hurry.

The new chips will feature a quad-core CPU (all packing eight threads) and Radeon Vega RX graphics, as well as 4GB of HBM2 (high bandwidth memory). Finally, HP improved the AMD version with two USB-C Thunderbolt 3 ports, compared to the Nvidia version's USB-C 3.1 and USB-C Thunderbolt 3 ports. It will help them to support the fast processing and graphics horsepower.

This new series of processors is designed for use within integrated systems, such as AIOs, notebooks and NUCs. To make the tasks for VR enthusiasts and content creators, one of the HDMI ports is on the front. The combination promises to offer better performance compared to the combination of the 15-watt Intel Kaby Lake R-series Core i7 and the Nvidia MX150. Intel was also quite keen to note that it managed to significantly reduce the silicon footprint by over 50 percent and keep the CPU and GPU z-height at 1.7mm, mostly thanks to its EMIB (Embedded Multi-die Interconnect Bridge) technology. This architecture backed up with the real-time power-sharing framework and software drivers is the flawless example of the next generation device.

Or to put it in layfolk's terms, the Intel 8th generation AMD-ready Core processors are fast not just because they're new, but because Intel has gone to the extra level of designing the hardware in a very, very specific way. More can be expected from the American Multinational Corporation on the high-end performance notebook segment and the Core H-series.
