Intel announced the NUC11 series: i7-1185G7 can be selected with RTX 2060

Intel released four NUC 11 series mini consoles during CES 2021, all of which use the 11th generation Core processor and the Iris Xe core display. Some models also provide NVIDIA RTX 2060 independent display, thus providing higher performance.

Among them, NUC 11 Performance can choose Core i3-1115G4/i5-1135G7/i7-1165G7, and two notebook memory can be installed.

It has two versions, high and low, the higher version provides a 2.5-inch hard drive. The interface is still very luxurious, with HDMI 2.0a, mini DP, RJ45, three USB Type-A and two Thunderbolt 3.

NUC 11 Pro provides Core i5-1145G7/i7-1185G7 as an option, but the front is replaced with two USB Type-A interfaces.

It provides three M.2 slots, of which 2280 can be installed with solid state drives, and supports PCIe 4.0×4 channels. The 2230 can be installed with a wireless network card, and the 2242 can be matched according to user needs.

And the interface on its back is very luxurious, with a Thunderbolt 3 and a Thunderbolt 4, two HDMI 2.0b. Up to four USB Type-A and two RJ45 network cable interfaces can be realized, and one of them supports 2.5G network, far exceeding most notebooks.

As a high-performance representative, NUC 11 Enthusiast uses the Core i7-1165G7 processor, but it still has 4 cores and 8 threads. It supports up to 64GB of memory, provides an RTX 2060 graphics card and can install two M.2 solid state drives.

It provides two Thunderbolt 4, one HDMI 2.1a and one mini DP, with six USB Type-A and one RJ45, and an SD card reader on the front. This kind of specification is very suitable for content creators, although the CPU specification with only 4 cores and 8 threads is indeed not enough.
