Intel Allegedly Cancels NUC 12 Performance: No Cheap Alder Lake NUC For Now

Just weeks after Intel officially discontinued its inexpensive NUC 11 ‘Panther Canyon’ small form-factor PCs aimed at consumers, FanlessTech reports that the company have allegedly also cancelled plans for its reasonably-priced NUC 12 Performance systems based on Alder Lake processors. It looks like Intel intends to focus on business users and gamers with its NUCs while leaving mainstream consumers to its partners. Take the news with a grain of salt for now.

Instead of mainstream NUC 12 Performance, Intel will offer NUC 12 Pro codenamed “Wall Street Canyon” as well as a socketed Alder Lake-based NUC for gamers. In total, there will be five NUC 12 Pro models: vPro (i5/i7) and three non-vPro (i3/i5/i7) models with slim (M.2 SSD) and tall (SATA drive) options. As the name suggests, Intel’s NUC 12 Pro is aimed at professionals, which is why they will be available with an expansion module providing an SDXC/SD Express card reader. Meanwhile, the system will feature two HDMI ports: one HDMI 2.1 ([email protected]) and one HDMI 2.0b ([email protected]).
