Intel’s new palm-sized PC is the smallest VR-Ready Computer


In the coming CES event 2018, Intel will showcase its latest 8th gen Core i7 processor. With that said, Intel has unveiled two new variants of NUC which as portable sized fitting in your palm and capable of running a VR experience and gaming. You will a powerful graphics performance that easy to carry at your own convenience.

This new Next Unit of Computing (NUC) device consists of a small mighty chip, powerful enough to handle a good performance. Intel had been showing the mini technology years ago, but now it has finally implemented the concept.

The new Intel Core i7 chips come in two models NUC8i7HVK and NUC8i7HNK,  that are coupled with an AMD RX Vega M GPUs, nullifying the needs for the usage of bulky graphics cards. The HNK model is bundled with the lower end Vega GL chip, which slows as compared to the HVK model. And the HVK model is bundled with AMD’s Vega M GH hardware which more computes units with a higher clock speed.

Intel says that the NUC can support up to six displays simultaneously. Aldo you get a bunch of ports for thunderbolts 3 USB-C, Gigabit Ethernet, Mini Display port, USB 3.1, HDMI, and 3.5mm audio port. You will have to add a separate storage for RAM and other controls before you can start romping on it.

For better gaming performance te Vega GH is better as compared to the Nvidia’s GTX 1060 cards while the GL can trump 1050. Playing high-end games like DOOM you can expect at least 60fps graphic at 1080p resolution. But not to forget what the benchmarks tests scores have to say how these machines will perform before they hit the stores.
