Intel Readies Crimson Canyon NUC with 10nm Core i3 and AMD Radeon

Intel is giving final touches to a "Crimson Canyon" fully-assembled NUC desktop model which combines the company's first 10 nm Core processor, and AMD Radeon discrete graphics. The NUC8i3CYSM desktop from Intel packs a Core i3-8121U "Cannon Lake" SoC, 8 GB of dual-channel LPDDR4 memory, and discrete AMD Radeon RX 540 mobile GPU with 2 GB of dedicated GDDR5 memory. A 1 TB 2.5-inch hard drive comes included, although you also get an M.2-2280 slot with both PCIe 3.0 x4 (NVMe) and SATA 6 Gbps wiring. The i3-8121U packs a 2-core/4-thread CPU clocked up to 3.20 GHz and 4 MB of L3 cache; while the RX 540 packs 512 stream processors based on the "Polaris" architecture.

The NUC8i3CYSM offers plenty of modern connectivity, including 802.11ac + Bluetooth 5.0 powered by an Intel Wireless-AC 9560 WLAN card, wired 1 GbE from an Intel i219-V controller, consumer IR receiver, an included beam-forming microphone, an SDXC card reader, and stereo HD audio. USB connectivity includes four USB 3.1 type-A ports including a high-current port. Display outputs are care of two HDMI 2.0b, each with 7.1-channel digital audio passthrough. The company didn't reveal pricing, although you can already read a performance review of this NUC from the source link below.

Intel doesn't have a choice. Their 10nm is so borked, that the integrated GPU is non-functional.
Believe me when I say this - Intel doesn't do anything from the goodness of their hearth.

Same with the new "F" series of CPUs (with a faulty & disabled GPU) - they want to milk the sheep, which in turn think Intel made it because they have heard the OC community. Well... they didn't.
All they did is select all those GPU-faulty parts, disable it, sell for the same (!) price as the normal models.

Gotta get rid of those worthless dies somehow. Manuf should demand them for free. They would go in the trash, otherwise.

Don't say that. Think of the fanboys!

Put 2 ethernet ports in it so we can use these for routers/firewalls.

Oh look, a working 10nm product. Too bad it's a pitifully clocked dual core chip.
