Intel NUC 13 ‘Raptor Canyon’ Spotted Online

Just a few weeks past, we came across Intel’s NUC 12Serpant Canyon which featured Intel’s own Arc A GPUs as a graphical solution. Now, we have an alleged low-res picture of team blue’s next gen gaming mini-PC.

What exactly is Intel NUC?

Intel’s NUC product lineup consists of small form factor desktops cosplaying as mini PCs. They are useful for those requiring a not so bulky system which can be carried here and there, although while providing sufficient performance.

momomo_us on Twitter shared a cryptic picture which does not reveal much and may look as if the graphics were copied from the pre-DX9 era. However, a PCIe x 16 along with 2 DIMM slots can be seen. As per various sources, this indeed is Intel’s upcoming NUC 13.

We also came across Intel’s roadmap for its NUC lineup. The ‘Raptor Canyon’ NUCs are dubbed as ‘Intel NUC x Extreme‘ shipping with next-gen (13th gen ‘Meteor Lake’) i9-K/KF, i7-K/KF, i5-K/KF CPUs. The release date is actually planned for Q4 2022 and high-end variants may be powered by Intel’s Arc A7 GPUs.
