While PC demand remains weak, Intel’s NUCs have been doing rather well and it is set to release a new wave of the bare bone products at CES.

Intel will unveil its new Baby Canyon NUC platform in the first quarter of 2017 to succeed its existing Rock Canyon and Swift Canyon platforms, using Kaby Lake or entry-level Apollo Lake based processors.

A Core i3 version of the Baby Canyon platform will arrive in January, followed by a Core i5 version in February and a Core i7 in March. This means that Intel will offer five CPUs for its new NUC systems including Core i7-7567U, Core i5-7200U and Core i3-7100U.

The company's existing Skull Canyon platform with Core i7 processors for the gaming market is expected to die off in the first half of 2018.

Intel does have competition in the NUC market from Gigabyte, Elitegroup and ASRock, Asustek, Zotac and Shuttle. Gigabyte and ECS have also been promoting their NUC devices for enterprises.
