The blog FanlessTech claims to have leaked the "NUC 11 Performance" and its specs. This supposed next generation on from Intel's 10 Performance series may be code-named Panther Canyon at present. The interesting new name apparently represents the inclusion of 28 watt (W) Tiger Lake-U silicon paired with Xe integrated graphics.
These upcoming mini-PCs may also support up to 64GB of dual channel DDR4-3200 memory, along with the M.2 22x80 key M and PCIe x4 Gen4 standards. They may thus house NVMe or, alternatively, Intel Optane M10 memory. In terms of ports, "Panther Canyon" has HDMI 2.1, a v1.4 Mini DisplayPort, front and rear Thunderbolt 3 ports, and an Intel 10/100/1000/2500 Ethernet port.
The next-gen NUCs are also described as equal to quad displays and 8K support. USB type C is also hinted at in the blog's new render; going by the NUC 10 variants' step up to this standard, this is plausible enough.
The "Frost Canyon successor" will also be equipped with Intel Wireless-AX 201, and will (unsurprisingly) support Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0. Finally, this new leak also touched on the subject of Phantom Canyon.
These devices will apparently be re-named the NUC 11 Extreme series on launch. FanlessTech purports to corroborate earlier rumors that they will have discrete graphics (6 to 8GB's worth, to be exact), but made no mention of NVIDIA this time.
This flavor of alleged NUC 10 successor is now said to have much the same specs as "Panther Canyon", down to their 28W Tiger Lake-U processors, which will be either core i5 or i7. This tiny gaming PC will be available "later this year", whereas the putative 11 Performance SKUs will launch in the second half of 2020.
