Intel Crimson Canyon NUC to Feature Cannon Lake-U CPU and Radeon 500 Graphics

Photographs of Intel's Crimson Canyon NUC have finally surfaced. WinFuture managed to get their hands on one that's powered by an Intel Core i3-8121U dual-core processor based on the Cannon Lake architecture. The NUCs come with 4 GB or 8 GB of memory, a 2.5-inch hard drive, built-in Wi-Fi 802.11ac, and Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity. The Crimson Canyon NUC also features a discrete AMD Radeon graphics card. The "Radeon 500-series" reference in one of the screenshots along with the "2GB of GDDR5" on the packaging takes us to the conclusion that Intel is most likely integrating a Polaris-based graphics card into the Crimson Canyon NUC. It's highly unlikely that we will find the CPU and GPU on the same chip like the one in the Hades Canyon NUC. Instead, the GPU will probably be soldered directly to the motherboard itself. The Intel Core i3-8121U models (NUC8I3CYSM2 and NUC8I3CYSM3) start around 450 euros, which roughly translates to $550. There was no mention when they will be available though.

And now i have to find out which 500 series, watch it be r9 series like what intel did with Vega M being polaris which was also proven as fact by toms hardware xD

R9 was joke, just like to point out vega polaris xD

Its polaris 22 a custom polaris chip, it only shares the same feature set as rx550


Different die size, transistor count, core config

thats the way the cookie crumbles xD

this is what Vega M supports
Chip Name: Polaris 22
Graphics/Compute: GFX8
Display Core Engine: 11.2
Unified Video Decoder: 6.3
Video Compression Engine: 3.4

Vega 56/64 supports
Chip Name: Vega 10
Graphics/Compute: GFX9
Display Core Engine: 12.0
Unified Video Decoder: 7.0
Video Compression Engine: 4.0

Vega 3/6/8/10 supports
Chip Name: Raven
Graphics/Compute: GFX9
Display Core Next: 1.0
Video Core Next: 1.0

Raven is more advanced than Vega 10 (Vega 64s chip)
