Experience extreme. At only 1.2 liters—which means it can be dropped into a messenger bag or tucked out of sight in an office or living space—the Intel® NUC8i7HNKQC Mini PC is the smallest NUC capable of AAA gaming or 360° video editing and is ready to go out-of-the-box. We innovated the Hades out of our Skull Canyon NUC—upgrading it with an 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor with Radeon™ RX Vega M GL Graphics—and redesigned the motherboard and chassis to optimize power use and size. Intel-built means the best technology available measured in gasps, shouts, and high fives.

Grab Every GHz of Performance for Gaming and Content Creation
The Intel® NUC8i7HNKQC Mini PC delivers extreme gaming performance as well as the performance for 360° video editing and rendering. With Windows* 10, an 8th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 processor with Radeon™ RX Vega M GL Graphics with 4 GB of dedicated high bandwidth memory, 16 GB of DDR4 RAM, and a 512 GB NVMe SSD, the Mini PC loads maps screaming fast and serves up photo and video files quickly. On-board Intel® HD Graphics 630 assists in streaming video to Twitch* and other broadcast sites during live game play, while the discrete Radeon™ RX Vega M GL Graphics handles high-performance games. All this means a Mini PC as powerful as the biggest tower or laptop.

Extreme Connectivity for Controllers and Peripherals
With front and rear HDMI* ports, two Mini DisplayPort* ports, and two Thunderbolt™ 3 ports, the NUC8i7HNKQC Mini PC can handle up to five 4K displays or one 5K display for games or creations in living color.
