Chipzilla has given up making them itself

Intel has announced ASUS as its first partner for its Next Unit of Compute (NUC) mini PC business.

The two companies have entered a non-binding agreement to see ASUS manufacture, sell and support the 10th- to 13th-generation products in Intel's NUC line. ASUS will also develop future NUC designs. Based on the business's current lineup, ASUS could develop future NUC mini PCs, DIY kits for mini PCs, DIY kits for laptops, customisable boards, chassis and other assembly elements.

Intel has walked away from "direct investment" in its NUC business and will no longer produce first-party NUC products. Instead it would working with partners for a non-essential business will free up resources it could use to concentrate on making chips.

Chipzilla said its first-quarter earnings exceeded expectations, but its revenue was still down 36 per cent year-over-year compared to its results in the same period for 2022. The company said that it remains cautious in this economy.
