Intel NUC Frost Canyon with Comet Lake-U processor
Frost Canyon is the latest generation of Intel small NUC computers. The device should go on sale on December 12.
The heart of the computer will be Intel Core 10 generation processors, unfortunately not the latest in the 10 nm class lithographic Ice Lake circuits, only Comet Lake-U made in the 14 ++ process. This means that once again we get an integrated iGPU from the UHD Graphics series, which is not very suitable for gaming. It works well in the office and in HTPC.
We have three processors to choose from, the first is a dual-core, quad-core Core i3-10110U with 4 MB L3, a quad-core, eight-thread Core i5-10210U with 8 MB L3 and a six-core, twelve-thread i7-10710U with 12 MB L3. They all have a TDP of 25 W. The computers will be sold in two sizes. The smaller will be equipped only with M.2 SSD, while the larger will fit both M.2 SSD and additional 2.5 “HDD / SSD.
A Wi-Fi 6 network card has been built-in. For ports, we’ll get a pretty solid set consisting of a single Thunderbolt 3 connector, three USB 3.1 Type A Gen.1 ports, one USB 3.1 Type C connector on the front of the device, digital HDMI 2.0, Ethernet RJ-45 network, 3.5 mm audio jack, SD card reader and Kensington Lock.
