Intel NUC 12 "Serpent Canyon" Packs an Arc A770M GPU and i7-12700H Processor

One of the biggest dividends of the Arc discrete graphics lineup for Intel is getting to use its own GPUs in its NUC desktops. The next-generation NUC 12 "Serpent Canyon" desktop sees the 11th Gen Core "Tiger Lake" quad-core + RTX 2060 "Turing" combination replaced by advanced 12th Gen Core "Alder Lake" 6P+8E processor, and the Arc "Alchemist" A770M discrete GPU. Intel's choice of mobile versions of "Alchemist" and "Alder Lake" may have to do with not just lower TDP, but possibly also an implementation of the Intel Deep Link feature.

The A770M maxes out the 6 nm ACM-G11 silicon, packing 32 Xe Cores (512 execution units, or 4,096 unified shaders), and has 16 GB of 256-bit GDDR6 memory. When paired with the 14-core "Alder Lake-H" processor, the duo could make for a formidable performance-gaming and creator machine. "Serpent Canyon" also sees the integration of Thunderbolt 4, SDXC UHS-II, Wi-Fi 6E, and 2.5 GbE interfaces, along with a number of USB 3.2 ports. Although its marketing images are leaked to the web on Chinese social media, there's no release date for the thing yet, but it could be just around the corner.

"Never Failed to Deliver"
What a laughable statement.

Could you please check how many times Arc GPUs and Sapphire Rapids delayed ?

They were "supposed to be launched" in year 2020
Then "Slipped a bit to mid 2021"
Oh Q4 2021
Now where are we here, Q4 2022 now?

"Never Failed"?

Oh, so that's the fanboy mantra now? Nitpicking?

Were we talking about ARC GPUs? No we weren't. We're talking about NUCs. Stay focused.

There's nothing simple about launching a new line of GPUs, especially in the competitive world market we have. Quit the whining.

There is a A770M Arc GPU sticking right in that NUC.
When Arc GPUs got delayed AGAIN your precious NUCs goes with them.

I guess fanboyism simply blinded your eyes and can't notice the simple fact there.

Enough said.

If previous NUC's are anything to go by, there's actually two sideplates in the box, one without the skull.

The logo is fine. These also come with a plate that does not have the logo and the lights can be disabled

True, the NUCs have always come out however getting some of them has been a pain. For the Extreme ones that came with a GPU on the board retailers often only sell them as prebuilts leaving you stuck paying their tax on RAM + SSD and having to deal with that and possibly be stuck with their components while you go get what you wanted.

It's not their fault though, it's just dodgy practices on Amazon, simplynuc, and newegg.

They also make tops that have extra I/O stuff or even support IR remotes. It's modular.

True! They are highly sought after and can be difficult to find.
