Fanlesstech and Chiphell have captured a large number of images revealing a new series for the NUC mini-PC family, the Canyon-NUC Quartz. This is the first time Intel has offered an eight-core Xeon (Coffe Lake) processor option, another option is a ninth generation i7 vPro
The sides of the mini-PC are made of steel mesh, and two type A USB connectors and a card reader slot are available on the front. The interface set on the back of the computer includes four USB Type-A, two RJ-45, one 3.5mm audio jack, one Thunderbolt 3 pair, one HDMI, plus video outputs.
At the top of the device is a ventilation grille, behind which are hidden two 80 mm fans. There are at least two M.2 connectors as well as a pair of slots for installing DDR4 SO-DIMM modules. WiFi 6 (802.11ax) is also present.
The video card that came with the mini PC is the NVIDIA Quadro P2000, which is installed in the PCI Express 3.0 x16 slot on the daughter card. Below is a 500 watt power supply. The processor, RAM, and other important system components are placed on a separate card, similar to a video card.
