Intel launches smallest VR-capable system ever

Intel Vega M G-series CPU release date

The new Intel NUC (formerly codenamed Hades Canyon) is based on the newly announced 8th Gen Intel Core i7 processorwith Radeon RX Vega M graphics in a tiny 1.2 liter system. At CES 2018, the company revealed the world's most potent Intel NUC. "Packed with features and performance crafted for gamers, content creators and fans of virtual and mixed reality, it expands Intel's portfolio thanks to its optimization for small form factors like 2 in 1s, thin and light notebooks, and mini PCs", Intel said in a statement. The Radeon RX Vega graphics processor can operate from 1,063MHz to 1,190MHz and is "unlocked and VR-capable". Not too shabby for a system that measures just 221mm x 142mm x 39mm.

As noted, the new Hades Canyon NUC comes with a 1.2L chassis, measuring 221 x 142 x 39 mm.

The NUC8i7HVK comes with Radeon RX Vega M GH graphics along with a 100W quad-core 8th generation Intel Core i7-8809G CPU clocked at 3.1GHz and 4.2GHz turbo mode, according to a blog post by Intel. The NUC8i7HNK will be available first with the VR-ready NUC8i7HVK following a few weeks later.

AMD Ryzen 2400G with Radeon Vega graphics is something that we are looking forward to and here we have some benchmarks that show how well the chip compares to the Intel 7700 and 7600 desktop CPUs as well as the Intel 8705G mobile CPU. Intel's performance claim on this one is that it can reach GeForce GTX 1050 performance levels. Both variants will also have a RAID-0 and RAID-1 capable SDXC slot and dual-channel DDR4-2400+ SODIMMs RAM capable of holding up to 32GB of memory.

What's even more interesting is the fact that one of the HDMI ports on the front of the unit will be able to be used to plug in a Virtual Reality headset.

Intel announced the debut of Intel Studios, a newly constructed, state-of-the-art studio dedicated to the production of large-scale, volumetric content for the next generation of immersive media.
