Intel has come a long way since Kaby Lake. A closer look at the evolution and differences between the Hades Canyon and Phantom Canyon NUCs shows why the blue chipmaker will unlikely pursue another partnership with its red counterpart anytime soon.

Intel and AMD made ripples in their industry when they announced a partnership in 2017 to co-develop the Kaby Lake-G platform. It was a one-of-a-kind chipset that married a quad-core Kaby Lake-H CPU with a Radeon RX Vega GPU all wrapped under a 100 W TDP envelope. It didn't last very long in the market, however, due in part to its very limited support from major PC makers.

The 2018 Hades Canyon NUC remains the one and only champion of the Kaby Lake-G Core i7-8809G processor. While it would be foolish to expect it to run as fast as the latest solutions of 2021, we're still interested in seeing just how much of a performance gap exists between the rare 100 W Core i7-8809G and the current 28 W Tiger Lake-U platform.

The NUC11 Phantom Canyon directly succeeds the NUC8 Hades Canyon to make it the perfect system for a head-to-head comparison. Multi-thread-heavy benchmarks like CineBench, Blender, and HWBOT x265 show that the Core i7-8809G and Core i7-1165G7 are very close to one another despite their massive differences in TDP levels. However, the newer CPU handily outperforms the Intel-AMD CPU when it comes to single-threaded loads.

When looking at the Radeon RX Vega M GH and mobile GeForce RTX 2060, the latter offers significantly faster frame rates especially when running demanding DX12 titles at higher resolutions where performance becomes more GPU bound.

Overall power consumption is higher on Phantom Canyon than on Hades Canyon meaning the performance uptick doesn't come free. However, the rise in consumption is much smaller than the rise in performance percentagewise for higher gen-to-gen performance-per-watt. Additionally, core temperatures and fan noise would remain relatively consistent between the two NUCs despite the large performance gaps. Users are getting more performance without the machine running louder or warmer.

Kaby Lake-G was fun while it lasted, but Phantom Canyon is proof that you don't need an exotic architecture when "stock" CPUs and GPUs can accomplish the same and with better software support.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
