Intel has launched the NUC X15 Laptop Kit, its reference gaming laptop that leaked last month. It is unclear which companies plan to release the NUC X15, but Intel has confirmed all specifications and configurations that will be available to them.

As the table below shows, Intel has created five configurations, all with Tiger Lake processors and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 series GPUs. Additionally, the configurations share dual-channel SODIMMs, a 16:9 display, a mechanical keyboard and per-key RGB backlighting.

However, Intel equips the entry-level model with a Core i5-11400H, a GeForce RTX 3060 and an FHD panel that peaks at 144 Hz. By contrast, all other configurations have a Core i7-11800H and a GeForce RTX 3070, along with a choice between a QHD/165 Hz display and an FHD/240 Hz one.

A 94 Wh battery rounds powers the NUC X15, which should keep it ticking over for a few hours of gaming sessions. The inclusion of an HDMI 2.1 port makes the NUC X15 suitable for connecting to a high-refresh-rate external monitor, too. Intel has not hinted at any recommended prices for the NUC X15 yet, though.
