Intel unveils NUC 13 Extreme gaming PC

Not exactly compact any more 

Chipzilla's new NUC 13 Extreme gaming PC is being demonstated and it appears that Intel has given up on the concept of NUCs being small.

The new model has a Core i9-13900K processor and a triple-slot GeForce RTX or Radeon RX graphics card into a small space, only not really what we have come to expect from NUCs. The Intel NUC 13 Extreme is a 14-litre machine which is so tightly packed it could draw in a small moon into its orbit.

It has Intel's top-of-the-range Core i9-13900K processor with eight high-performance cores, and 16 energy-efficient cores, up to 64GB of DDR4-4800+ memory, three M.2-2280 SSDs with a PCIe 4.0 interface, and one 3.5-inch or two 2.5-inch hard drives (or SATA SSDs).

The NUC 13 can accommodate a graphics card with a triple-slot cooler up to 313 mm long and consumes up to 450W of power (using one 12VHPWR connector or three eight-pin auxiliary power connectors).  It looks like the box handles 'tall' graphics cards so it should be able to take anything.

The system is equipped with a 750W 80Plus Gold-badged SFX 12VO internal power supply Wi-Fi 6E + Bluetooth 5.2 adapter, two LAN connectors (2.5GbE and 10GbE), two Thunderbolt 4 ports, six USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-A connectors on the back, two USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-A connectors on the front, one USB 3.2 Gen2x2 Type-C on the front, four display outputs (three DP, one HDMI) driven by built-in Intel UHD Graphics GPU, 7.1-channel audio subsystem, and a 3.5-mm TRRS port for headsets on the front panel.

The pricing of Intel's NUC 13 Extreme will range between $1,179 for a Core i5-13600K-equipped barebones and $1,549 for a Core i9-13900K-equipped barebones. In addition, companies like SimplyNUC will offer pre-assembled machines using Intel's NUC 13 Extreme.
