Intel announces gaming NUC computer

The US hardware giant Intel has announced what may be the first ever gaming NUC (Next Unit of Computing) computer. The device has the rather strange NUC6i7KYK name and due to the hardware used inside is about two times larger than your average NUC. Thanks to the used hardware the NUC6i7KYK has enough power for sub-1080p gaming although this might be easily changed.

The new Intel NUC6i7KYK NUC computer sports an Intel Core i7-6770HQ processor on the latest Skylake architecture. The chip, which has four cores, features Hyper-Threading technology, which allows it to process eight software threads at once, 6 MB of L3 cache, 128 MB of L4 cache and Intel Iris Pro Graphics 580. The processor runs at 2.60 GHz and reaches 3.50 GHz in Turbo Mode, while the integrated GPU operates at 950 MHz. If the on-chip GPU is not enough for your games you can connect an external graphics card thanks to the provided Thunderbolt 3 port so in any case you will enjoy smooth graphics effects.

The NUC6i7KYK will be available in a number of configurations with the most expensive one featuring the aforementioned processor, 16 GB of DDR4 memory at 2133 MHz, 256 GB of SSD storage and Windows 10. This model will sell for USD 999, while the base one where the hardware is unknown will cost USD 650.
