Intel shows off 8th Gen based NUCs

"Coffee Lake" SoCs

Intel has released its pre-built NUC desktops based around its newer  8th generation "Coffee Lake" SoCs.

On the surface, they have the same grey brick look which has been around since the arrival of the low-power "Gemini Lake" based NUCs.

However, the existing titled NUC8i3BEH, NUC8i5BEH and NUC8i7BEH come with progressively meaner chips. The NUC8i3BEH Core i3, the NUC8i5BEH has a Core i5, and the NUC8i7BEH has a Core i7 chip.

The cases are slightly bigger due to the 28-Watt TDP which also needs a bulker heatsink.

The thinner NUC8i3BEK and NUC8i5BEK, differentiated by lower TDP (15 W) SoCs, lack 2.5-inch drive bays.

They should be in the shops next week.
