A few months ago was observed in the Far East Unexpected launch Dual - core mobile processor Core i3-8121U, Which was different from all other Core family models of the eighth generation because it was based on the first production process of In the 10 nanometer, instead of the third incarnation of the known production process at.


It was a test balloon for the chip manufacturer, perhaps one to fulfill the company's promise to investors to bring 10 nanometer processors to market commercially during 2018 - and naturally aroused quite a bit of interest among hardware enthusiasts as a small clue as to what lies ahead with the next generation, 10 second nanometer, which should already be translated into full and complete line of For all categories and price levels.

After the launch of the laptops, the "rare" chip of the most This year comes to the West on desktop computers

Now we all seem to have an opportunity to get to know the Core i3-8121U closely because it becomes part of the popular NUC family of computers As part of two sub-models that have already reached online stores.

Crimson Canyon's tiny salon computer comes in a pre-assembled array that also has an operating system at its cost, unlike other NUC models that are usually offered in "naked" versions without a storage drive or dynamic memories. In both models you will find the processor in question with a pair of physical cores and a pair of logical cores, at frequencies between 2.2GHz and 3.2GHz and with 4MB cache - together with a separate Radeon 540 dedicated graphics core , Because the i3-8121U does not include Built-in graphic is active.

Computers The first with 10 nanomaterials comes to stores only in the increased configuration - with 2.5-inch drives that increase the height compared to other models based on M.2 products only

One model of the new computer offers 4GB of the XD-NXUMXMHz LPDDR4 memory and the second model 2,666GB, but the specifications are the same and include one terabyte hard drive, 8 Home Edition, Wireless-AC 9560 for Wi-Fi connectivity 802.11ac and Bluetooth 5.0, Gigabit Ethernet based on controller from , Four USB connections 3.1 Gen X.1 in the Type-A configuration, an HDMI 2.0a video port pair and an additional 2 M.80 connector for SSDs or Optane family accelerators .

The price is certainly not cheap, although NUC's series It never aimed at the most competitive prices in the field of miniature computers

These unique computers are also available American Amazon, With no direct delivery option to Israel at this time - and at the international site of the Newegg store, there Model with 4GB of dynamic memory You will be charged NIS 2,327 plus VAT and shipping to Israel, while Modeled with 8GB of RAM Will cost NIS 2,568. Worth it or not - it is already a decision that you are invited to do your own reactions.
