Intel Launches NUC 13 Extreme: 24-Core CPUs, Support for the 450W NVIDIA RTX 4090 via 12VHPWR

Intel has launched its NUC 13 Extreme mini-PCs based on its 13th Gen Core processors. Codenamed Raptor Canyon, these portable monsters can be equipped with 24-core i9 CPUs and 12″ long graphics cards with a TBP of up to 450W. Although existing GeForce RTX 4090s are too fat for this SFF machine, there are bound to be more compact designs on the horizon. (phentermine375.net) Seeing how the length, power, and connectors are all in place, the Ada Lovelace flagship should be a suitable VGA option.


  • Unlocked, 125W 13th Gen Intel® Core™ i9/i7/i5 processors
  • PCIe x16 Gen5 slot supports triple-slot 12” (313mm) graphics cards, up to ~450W
  • Dual-channel DDR5 SODIMMs, up to 64GB
  • Intel® 2.5GbE (i226-V) / 10GbE (AQC113) LAN
  • Intel® Killer™ Wi-Fi 6E AX1690i
  • 2x Thunderbolt™ 4 / USB4 Type-C ports
  • Fully modular 750W 80+ Gold SFX 12VO internal power supply
  • Modern chassis design (129 x 318 x 337mm, <14L)
  • Intel three-year Warranty

All the desktop-grade features of Raptor Lake-S are carried over to this miniaturized platform. A base TDP of 125W, peak boosts of up to 5.8GHz (under light loads), PCIe x16 Gen 5 slot with 12VHPWR connector, and three 8-pin PCIe power connectors supplying 450W power. Additionally, dual-channel DDR5 64GB memory support, x3 M.2 NVMe SSD support, HDMI 2.1, 2x Thunderbolt 4/USB 4, 8 USB 3.2 ports, WiFi 6E, and a fully modular 750W 80+ Gold power supply to keep it running smoothly.
