Intel Frost Canyon NUC leak indicates an incremental update over Bean Canyon, expected to launch on December 12
Details have begun to emerge about what is likely to be the successor to Intel's Bean Canyon NUC lineup. Named Frost Canyon, the new NUC sports a design that is very much similar to the Coffee Lake-U-powered Bean Canyon save for a few changes.
Like Bean Canyon, Frost Canyon will also be available in two sizes: ultra-thin with M.2 storage only and regular with both M.2 and SATA 2.5-inch bay. Frost Canyon now offers a USB 3.1 Type-C interface on the front panel instead of the USB Type-A found in Bean Canyon. The remaining port selection is the same including the rear I/O, which is comprised of an HDMI port, Gigabit Ethernet, two USB 3.1 Gen2 Type-A ports, and a Thunderbolt 3 port.
Internally, Frost Canyon will be getting an upgrade to the 10th gen Comet Lake family with options of 25W SKUs of the Core i3-10110U (NUC10i3FN), Core i5-10210U (NUC10i5FN), and the Core i7-10710U (NUC10i7FN). FanlessTech reports that at least two third-party fanless cases for the Frost Canyon NUCs are in the works.
Frost Canyon is expected to be available on December 12. Apart from Frost Canyon, Intel also has a few other NUCs coming up including the 'Element' modular PC concept-based Ghost Canyon NUC powered by the Core i9-9980HK, a 28W Tiger Lake-U-powered Phantom Canyon NUC with discrete NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti or RTX 2060 graphics, and a Xeon E-powered Quartz Canyon workstation NUC.
