Intel is supposedly due to announce the NUC 11 Performance this month, according to Fanless Tech. However, @9550pro has already revealed the full details of the device, and it has also been spotted on UserBenchmark. Intel will offer the NUC 11 Performance with a choice of three Tiger Lake processors, the leaked slide states, ranging from the Core i3-1115G4 to the Core i7-1165G7. All are 28 W processors and boost above 4 GHz. The Core i3 includes a lesser GPU though, with Xe Graphics reserved for the Core i5 and Core i7 SKUs.

Only the Core i7-1165G7 model has appeared on UserBenchmark so far. Benchmarked as the Intel NUC11PHi7, the NUC 11 Performance has been paired with a GeForce RTX 2070 GPU. It is unclear how this was done, but it may have been with an eGPU connecting to one of the machine's Thunderbolt ports. There will also be three USB 3.1 Gen2 ports, USB 2.0 ports via internal headers, a Gigabit Ethernet port, an HDMI 2.0b port and a Mini DisplayPort 1.4 connection.

The same leak by  @9550pro details that Intel will release three chassis types of the NUC 11 Performance. The "Slim" K will be the smallest of the three, measuring 117 x 112 x 38 mm, with the "Tall" H and "Tall Q" chassis coming in at 51 mm and 56 mm tall, respectively. The three chassis will include the same core features, but the "Tall" H and "Tall Q" will include additional equipment that the "Slim" K lacks. The "Tall" H and "Tall" Q will both have a 2.5-inch SATA 3 bay capable of housing up to 7 mm thick drives, while the "Tall" Q will also have a wireless charger built into its lid.

The NUC 11 Performance 'Panther Canyon' is not the only NUC that Intel plans to release soon, either. Tiger Canyon and Phantom Canyon are both in the pipeline, both based on the company's Tiger Lake platform. Tiger Canyon and Phantom Canyon are expected to arrive in early 2021. 

Thanks to Lucas Mason for the tip!
