At Chiphell Forums, Intel’s next-gen mini-PC, the Phantom Canyon was leaked revealing that it will launch with Tiger Lake-U CPUs and Intel’s Xe GPU line-up. The specs indicate that it is a formidable mini powerhouse.
With the 28W Tiger Lake-U processors, the Phantom Canyon NUCs will launch. They will be based on the same 10 nm method as the upcoming Ice Lake line-up of Intel but will feature a more sophisticated process node and an enhanced layout of microarchitecture. The fresh chips will also include transistor optimizations, cache redesigns, and enhanced safety characteristics to achieve superior output for the Ice Lake lineup.
The Phantom Canyon NUC will also present the Intel Xe line-up of separate GPUs anticipated to deliver comparable output to the GTX 1660Ti and the RTX 2060. The next-gen NUCs for Gen 4 SSDs will also support PCIe 4.0 x4 interface. We can also expect 2x SODIMMs at 2.666 MHz or 64 GB of memory at 2.400 MHz with support for up to 32 GB of memory.
Expect an HDMI 2.1 port, 2x mini DisplayPort 1.4 and a Type-C Thunderbolt 3.0 for I / O. Together with various 2nd Gen USB 3.1 ports, it will also feature dual M.2 NVMe SSD slots, 2.5 G, and Gigabit LAN, WiFi-6, and 5.0 support. Also, for cooling and RGB lighting, expect a custom vapor chamber. Intel also suggested a 100W rise in last-gen energy input to 330W. Expect to hear more about the Phantom Canyon NUCs from Intel coming from CES 2020.
