Intel NUC Roadmap Peeking Into 2021: Tiger Lake NUC by 2020 End

Intel is planning to introduce its first NUC (next unit of computing) device based on the 11th generation Core "Tiger Lake" processor by the end of 2020, according to leaked company roadmaps covering NUCs. These point to Intel refreshing its "Hades Canyon" performance-segment NUC mini-PC with a "Tiger Lake-U" processor, a 3rd party discrete GPU, and slightly bigger device size (1.35 L vs. 1.2 L of the original "Hades Canyon"). At the very top, the "Ghost Canyon" NUC 9 Extreme with "Coffee Lake-HR" processors will continue to hold the fort into 2021.

The mainstream NUC mini-PC lineup will continue to be "Frost Canyon," powered by "Comet Lake-U" 10th generation Core processors. Q2-Q3 2020 will see Intel launch significant updates to its NUC Compute Element lineup, with "West Cove," "Ghost Canyon," and "Quartz Canyon" holding the mainstream, performance-segment, and professional segment, respectively; while are likely based on "Comet Lake-H" processors; and "Austin Beach" low-power compute element based on "Comet Lake-U."

Jim Keller's teams were not designing plastic toys since he joined the company.

I dunno about you, but this is the first 10 nm from Intel that looks interesting. Cannon Lake was DOA and also just a shrunk Skylake. Ice Lake was better but lacked clocks.

If anyone wants to bash it because it's not desktop then you clearly don't understand how big the mobile/laptop sector is, and NUC's happen to use the same packages AFAIK.

My take is that Jim's addition to Intel will not yield results that quickly. While he may have made some tweaks here and there, most of the current product stacks' design are already pretty much confirmed.
