Intel NUC 12 Enthusiast review: a gaming PC the size of a book


The Intel NUC 12 Enthusiast delivers much higher performance than its size would suggest, all while expertly handling heat and noise.

Excellent 1080p gaming performance Laptop CPU matches desktop performance Small and relatively quiet Fantastic connectivity

Expensive Large, clunky power brick

“The NUC 12 Enthusiast delivers desktop-grade performance in a tiny form factor.”

Intel NUC 12 Extreme review: Alder Lake makes for a pricey, portable powerhouse


"Dragon Canyon" NUC can't keep up with a bigger desktop, but it gets close.

Great performance and efficiency compared to the NUC 11 model it replaces

Modest fan will keep it from running as fast as a full-size desktop with more cooling capacity

Intel NUC 12 Extreme (Dragon Canyon) Review


It may come as a surprise to you that this Intel NUC 12 Extreme packs a fully fledged Core i9-12900

Small form factor that supports a full sized GPU.

You pay a high premium for the NUC form factor.

The 65W Intel Core i9-12900 at the heart of Dragon Canyon delivers good performance, however the price is way too high.
