Intel NUC review: a little desktop PC that holds big promise

 

The NUC's small size, reasonable price and solid performance make it an ideal PC for tinkerers on a budget. Just be prepared to roll up your sleeves in setting it up.

Fast and simple hardware setup ; Great performance for common tasks ; Small size, VESA-mountable ; Barely audible fan noise

No native USB 3.0 ; Pricey once you factor in all the components

Now, it's time to address the question that we put out there at the very beginning of this review: is the NUC really deserving of its "Next Unit of Computing" title? Absolutely. The NUC stands as proof that traditional, mid-tower PCs deserve to go by...

Intel NUC 8 PC review: tiny gamer

 

Big power, small package

It’s super small ; ALL THE PORTS ; Powerful enough to game with ; Easy expandability of RAM and storage

It’s expensive ; You have to provide your own RAM, storage, and operating system ; Not as future-proof as a full-sized gaming PC

Mostly though, the NUC 8 isn’t supposed to be something that many people buy. It exists to show off what can be done with a small form-factor PC. And thanks to Intel and AMD’s new partnership, it turns out you can do quite a lot.

Intel's Bean Canyon (NUC8i7BEH) Coffee Lake NUC Review - Ticking the Right Boxes

 

Intel's NUCs have managed to develop a strong market for ultra-compact form-factor (UCFF) machines since they were introduced in the early 2010s. Each CPU generation has seen Intel put out stronger versions of the NUC (both in terms of performance and...

The NUC8i7BEH does have scope for improvement, though. The platform itself is excellent. However, the fan noise / thermal performance is disappointing. It is no doubt challenging to keep a 28W TDP SiP properly cooled in a UCFF machine. Eschewing the...

Intel NUC review

 

With a small form factor comes great responsibility

Good performance ; Tiny form factor ; Connectivity ; QuickSync

Not much gaming grunt ; No internal SATA port ; A bit pricey when additional extras factored in

The NUC gives us the hots as a general purpose system. With the Intel 520 SSD, it's slick and super responsive to use. And while the Intel HD 4000 graphics fail the fragging test, you do get QuickSync. Within certain limitations, then, you could even...

Intel NUC 7 Home Mini PC Core i5 review: Small, but not perfectly formed

 

Based on Intel's Next Unit of Computing form factor, the NUC 7 is beginning to show its age

Large stock storage capacity ; Good performance, despite its 4GB of RAM ; Very light and portable

Performance doesn't match the price tag ; Could be improved with more RAM ; Better competitor designs out there

Coupled with an ultra-compact plug-in power supply, which includes international adapters, the NUC could still be a winner for anyone who needs the ultimate in portability from their next machine.

Review: Intel NUC 8 VR Machine - just snuck up on me (review)

 

The Intel NUC – next unit of computing – has been around for six years. Perhaps it was an idea ahead of its time. The Intel NUC 8 VR machine blows away

Thge smallest, most powerful PC on the planet

A tad expensive

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Great Choice! Everything as expected or better. This is my first INTEL NUC kit.

 

I tried to play a graphically intense game like the Witcher 3 on 40fps and it is not bad considering it is an integrated card. Of course, I can add an external graphics card like the Razor Core later. At 60fps or more, it starts to stutter. I did not...

-easy to set up -nice and compact and portable -can play graphically intensive games -instruction on how to 3d print your own cover -thunderbolt connection -mostly easy driver installation from Intel

-not much

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Very nice unit overall. Great performance. Very happy I purchased it.

 

I added 32GB of DDR4 RAM and two M.2 memory modules (the very fast Samsung 950 Pro series). Overall I'm very satisfied with the performance - very snappy during boot time and during general use too. One installation tip: After you install your OS (I...

CPU is quick, graphics are snappy. Very nicely designed package - unscrew 4 bottom screws and you can open the unit and get to everything. I had everything (RAM, M2's) installed in 5 minutes. RAM and M.2's are very easy to install. Lots of nice ports -...

No major con's that I ran into. Everything worked and runs as expected. For some people, the lack of an internal 2.5" drive bay may be a concern. You can always connect 2.5" drives externally via either the USB 3.0 ports or via a Thunderbolt adapter....

Small and powerful but warm

 

-Specs: 512GB 950 Pro M.2 with 32GB G-skill 2133 ram and Windows 10 -Benchmarks I've ran so far *3DMark Sky Diver = 7982, Fire Strike = 1863, Cloud Gate = 12316, Ice Storm = 85480, Ice Storm Extreme = 70764 *Cinebench R15 OpenGL = 76.38fps, CPU = 688cb...

-Great performance per square foot. -While it is a mobile chip it is very snappy and plenty quick. -The amount of CPU and GPU performance they're getting out of a 45W package is very impressive. -Appears to keep up with my old i7 2600 no problem.

-Under heavy CPU load the temperature increases very quickly to the upper 90C range, up to 100C and once it's in that range it starts throttling but was still hovering around 3.2GHz, so not a big impact -Under combined CPU and GPU load it runs into...

Outstanding product - Runs Gentoo Linux great

 

I actually own this. As of the writing of this review, I think 1 other reviewer on this site actually owns this (I think this will be the 11th review). The others are simply commentary, which I do not find useful. I have had this for 4 days, and am...

- Very fast CPU - Expandable M.2 storage options (NVME + SATA) - and it can boot fine from NVME - 4x USB 3.0 Type A (traditional) + 1 Type-C Thunderbolt 3 - 3 video outputs (including the Thunderbolt 3 port) - Small form factor - Fan speed is dynamic...

The fan can get a little loud when the CPUs are pegged at 100% for extended periods, but probably not louder than a typical desktop with the same performance.
