Product on Review: NUC8i5INH
Street Price: $811 USD
Last month, Intel’s ultra-compact form-factor PCs hit the shelves – blending a combo of Intel’s 8th Gen Core i3/i5/i7 processor (Whiskey Lake)and AMD’s Radeon 540X discrete GPU. Beyond the obvious space saving advantage that a compact system like this brings – users won’t have to build the system themselves and the units typically eat up less power.
Depending on which of Intel’s NUC 8 Mainstream G is purchased, users will either have an Intel 8th Gen Core i3, Core i5 or Core i7 processor. The storage configuration may differ also. In the model we’ll be looking at today (BXNUC8i5INHPA1) we have the Intel® Core™ i5-8265U Processor, 8GB 2133MHz LPDDR3, and a 256GB Intel SSD 545S.
On top of this, our petite computer system has 802.11ac via Wireless AC-9560, USB 3.1 Gen2 functionality and HDMI 2.0b/DP 1.2 for video out – all alluding to an intriguing piece of kit!
