Intel NUC 12 Extreme ‘Dragon Canyon’ Datasheet Leaks

Intel previewed the NUC 12 Extreme “Dragon Canyon” mini PC at CES, revealing very little about the hardware, but a leaked spec sheet changed that.

As VideoCardz.com reports, the spec sheet reveals that Dragon Canyon will be offered in two NUC models: the NUC12EDBi7 and the NUC12RDBi9. The only component that differentiates the two is the Alder Lake chip they use. The Bi7 comes with a Core i7-12700 (12 cores, 20 threads) capable of reaching 4.9 GHz, while the Bi9 uses a Core i9-12900 (16 cores, 24 threads) and reaches 5.1 GHz.

The tiny NUC PC includes space for a PCIe x16 graphics card, dual-channel DDR4-3200 SODIMMs up to 64GB, and a PCIe x4 Gen4 NVME card slot. Available ports include one HDMI 2.0b, two Thuderbolt 4, six USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A, and 10Gbps Ethernet (and an additional 2.5Gbps Ethernet port on the Core i9 model). There’s also Intel Wi-Fi 6E with two internal antennas, 7.1 channel audio and Bluetooth 5.2.

The price of both models was discovered courtesy of the Twitter user @momomo_us. Barebones kits, meaning you’ll need to add storage, RAM and an operating system, cost $1,514 for the Core i7 model and $1,714 for the Core i9. That’s significantly more than the NUC 11 Extreme “Beast Canyon”, which started at $1,150 and $1,350 respectively.
