Intel Debuts the Skull Canyon Gaming NUC

Intel announced its first "gaming grade" NUC. As if the very concept of NUC wasn't disruptive to the small form-factor desktop segment enough, the company is upping the ante with one that's prepped for gaming. Codenamed NUC6i7KYK, the new Skull Canyon NUC is about double the size of the average NUC. It has sufficient muscle for sub-1080p gaming, but is also prepped for external graphics solutions, such as the Razer Core.

To begin with, the Skull Canyon is driven by a Core i7-6770HQ processor based on the "Skylake" architecture. This quad-core chip features HyperThreading, which enables 8 logical CPUs, 6 MB of L3 cache, 128 MB L4 cache, and Intel Iris Pro Graphics 580. The CPU cores run at speeds between 2.60 GHz and 3.50 GHz, while the iGPU ticks at 950 MHz.

Logitech Takes the Hassle Out of Building Video Conference Rooms

Today Logitech announced the Logitech ConferenceCam Kit with Intel NUC video conferencing system. Configured and validated by Logitech and Intel for performance, simplicity and compatibility, the ConferenceCam Kit includes a Logitech ConferenceCam, Intel NUC and Intel Unite application. The ConferenceCam Kit is compatible with virtually all PC-based cloud services, and does not require users to bring their own computer to start a video call. This enterprise-quality bundle mitigates the complexity and cost for businesses to scale up from a laptop-based experience, or scale beyond a boardroom telepresence system to a flexible and affordable solution for any meeting room.

"We have found that a significant number of Logitech ConferenceCams are attached to dedicated computers in meeting rooms, but purchasing, configuring and deploying a dedicated video conference system in meeting spaces can be expensive, and it's hard for our customers to know what is compatible," said Scott Wharton, general manager of the Logitech video collaboration group. "Logitech and Intel have taken the guesswork out of the equation. We researched, developed and tested the Logitech ConferenceCam Kit so it's easy to set up, easy to use and delivers the most affordable enterprise-quality video conferencing experience available today."
