Intel is working on their most powerful NUC (next-unit of computing) compact desktop, which they have dubbed “Skull Canyon”. It’s release is slated for the first quarter of 2016 (January – March). This NUC is to feature a Core “Skylake” CPU with Intel’s most powerful implementation of its 9th generation Iris Pro graphics. This will be an iGPU with 72 execution units and 128 MB eDRAM L4 cache. It will be interesting to see just how small this NUC will be.
