Back in January, the folks at FanlessTech detailed upcoming NUC boxes based on Tiger Lake. They included Panther Canyon (NUC 11 Performance) and Phantom Canyon (NUC 11 Extreme).
Panther Canyon was said to feature 28W Tiger Lake-U processor options (Core i7, i5, and i3), Intel Xe graphics, up to 64GB of DDR4-3200 RAM, a single M.2 slot, Intel Optane memory, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5, and a range of ports.
Phantom Canyon, meanwhile, was said to arrive as the successor to Skull Canyon (NUC 9 Extreme) with Core i7 and Core i5 Tiger Lake-U processors and discrete graphics.
Fast forward to today and the folks at HardwareLeaks offered up some potential details about the discrete graphics in the Phantom Canyon model. The information is spun from a 3DMark Time Spy benchmark run, as spotted by Twitter user @_rogame. Have a look...
Having discrete graphics muscle based on NVIDIA's Turing architecture paired with Tiger Lake-U is an enticing proposition. As to when we might see a NUC like this, it's not clear. The Coronavirus pandemic has disrupted roadmaps, though we hope this still finds its way to market before the end of the year.
