Intel Hades Canyon NUC

The Intel Hades Canyon NUC is not quite a mini-PC anymore since it’s the first to have a dedicated AMD GPU. Combined with the latest generation Core i7 processor, it promises a level of performance never before achieved in a compact PC and theoretically has the means to run most recent games in good conditions. Like its predecessor, the Hades Canyon drastically moves away from the usual NUC look of Intel and opts for a longer design and dominance of black.

We cannot really say that the product is “beautiful”, but the level of finish remains quite correct and the materials used seem solid. The Hades Canyon does not completely fit in the palm of the hand but remains surprisingly compact given the power of its components. Despite its dedicated graphics card, the Hades Canyon is far from a boiler and the heat is very well evacuated in the back.
