ASRock NUC 1100 BOX: Intel Tiger Lake NUC Mini-PCs launched with 28 W CPUs and Iris Xe Graphics
ASRock Industrial has released a new swathe of Mini-PCs, complementing the 4X4 BOX-4000 series that it announced last month. The company has called its latest Mini-PCs the NUC 1100 BOX series, and they are based on Intel's Tiger Lake-U series architecture.
Like the 4X4 BOX-4000, the NUC 1100 BOX measures 117.5 x 110 x 47.9 mm. ASRock Industrial has produced three SKUs, which each have a 90 W external PSU and a host of ports, as shown below. In total, the machines have five USB ports, two Ethernet ports and four video inputs, including the two USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C ports. ASRock Industrial plans to certify these for USB4 though and believes that they may be capable of Thunderbolt 3 or Thunderbolt 4.
The NUC 1100 BOX also has an Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX200 module on board that includes Bluetooth 5.1 support, along with two DDR4 SO-DIMM slots that support up to 64 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM. Additionally, there is an M.2-2280 slot and a SATA III bay for a 2.5-inch drive.
The NUC 1100 BOX series starts with the NUC BOX-1115-G4, which features a Core i3-1115G4 processor. The Tiger Lake chip integrates a UHD Graphics GPU that has 48 execution units (EUs), for reference. ASRock Industrial has called the mid-range model the NUC BOX-1135G7 that, unsurprisingly, includes the Core i5-1135G7 processor. Similarly, the top-end NUC BOX-1165G7 features the Core i7-1165G7. Both the Core i5-1135G7 and Core i7-1165G7 feature Iris Xe Graphics, although the Core i5-1135G7 has an 80 EU GPU compared to the 96 EU one in the Core i7-1165G7.
ASRock Industrial states that it will announce the pricing of the NUC 1100 BOX series before the end of October. You can also inquire with the company, should you wish to know more in the meantime.
