This week, Intel of Thailand inadvertently revealed the next-generation NUC mini PC based on the Comet Lake processor that the company is launching in the near future. At the same time, a store in the Netherlands was not careful to disclose the key specifications of the next generation of NUC, knowing that Intel Frost Canyon has a processor with up to six cores and supports up to 64GB of storage.

Online retailer MyElectronics.nl notes that Frost Canyon NUC is available in a variety of configurations, including options based on Intel 10 Generation Core i3/ i5/i7 (dual-core/quad-core/six-core) processors, as well as UHD Graphics core graphics.
The CPU has a configurable thermal design power (TDP-up) of 25W, so it always operates at higher clock frequencies, resulting in superior performance comparable to traditional desktop PCs.
On the storage side, Frost Canyon NUC offers two SO-DIMM memory slots, the first to support a single 32GB / a total of 64GB of DDR4 memory.
In terms of form factor, the new NUC will be available in ultra-thin and regular versions, some may only support M.2 storage, others may support M.2 plus 2.5-inch SATA drive bits.
In terms of connectivity, these systems are equipped with Thunderbolt 3, USB 3.2 Gen 2, Gigabit Ethernet (GbE), HDMI, and regular audio connectivity ports.
It’s worth noting that the upcoming Frost Canyon NUC can actually integrate remote microphones or support Amazon Alexa and Microsoft Cortana voice assistants.
The exact release date of Frost Canyon NUC is not yet known. However, foreign media speculated that the new Intel SFF PC products are expected to be available in time for the holiday season, but the price may be “beautiful”.
