Intel NUC 11 Extreme listing spotted with 11th-generation Tiger Lake-H CPUs, 3,200MHz DDR4 RAM support, and more
Last year, we reported that Intel's newest NUC 11 Extreme's launch would be delayed till Q1, 2021. There is still no official word about when it will be released, but we got our first glimpse at it thanks to a Chiphell user (via @9550pro on Twitter). It is slated to come with some exciting new hardware, including Intel Tiger Lake-H CPUs, likely the Core i5-11400H, Core i7-11800H and Core i9-11980HK that we spotted earlier.
Other Intel NUC 11 Extreme specs include support for up to 64GB of 3,200MHz DDR4 RAM, three M.2 slots, one HDMI 2.0b ports, and two Thunderbolt 4.0 ports. Then there's a 2.5Gbps Ethernet port and Wi-Fi 6 for internet connectivity. Intel has also thrown in a total of six USB 3.1 Gen2 Type-A connectors and two USB 2.0 and USB 3.1 headers apiece. Its PCI-e spec seems to be missing, but it is probably an x16 Gen 3.0 slot.
It'll be interesting to see what GPU Intel pairs the NUC 11 Extreme with. Getting your hands on a discrete GPU can be a bit daunting in the here and now. Thankfully, the NUC 11 Extreme can output video to up to three 4K displays via the included Thunderbolt and HDMI ports. The appearance of this listing indicates that the product is ready, and could be announced soon, although its official launch date is anybody's guess.
