CES: Intel Launches Smallest Virtual Reality-Capable System Ever

The NUC8i7HVK and NUC8i7HNK will both feature Intel's latest 8th generation Core processors with AMD developed Radeon RX Vega M graphics. The NUC (Next Unit of Computing) form factor computer is a mini PC that has the power to run VR applications in addition to fulfilling other home entertainment needs.

"Great for VR enthusiasts and workload-heavy content creators, it will be Intel's smallest premium VR-capable system in the market", Corinne Reichert of Intel said during the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Not too shabby for a system that measures just 221mm x 142mm x 39mm.

As is usually the case, there is no release date for the new Hades Canyon NUCs as of yet.

The NUC8i7HVK is based on the unlocked version of the new 8th Gen Intel Core processor with the Radeon RX Vega M GH graphics, giving overclockers the ability to take the system to higher levels. This is the model that Intel is pitching as being VR-ready.

Citizens Financial Group (NYSE:CFG) Price Target Raised to $49.00 at Barclays
The firm owned 45,433,136 shares of the company's stock after buying an additional 282,910 shares during the period. The bank reported $0.68 earnings per share (EPS) for the quarter, topping the consensus estimate of $0.64 by $0.04.

The real draw here is the new processors, with the NUC8i7HVK sporting the Intel Core i7-8809G and the NUC8i7HNK fitted with the Core i7-8705G.

What really made me sit up, though, was the claims in the presentation that the processor can outpace an NVidia GTX 1060 GPU - one that I bought not that long ago specifically because it flies through 360 video work. Both variants will also have a RAID-0 and RAID-1 capable SDXC slot and dual-channel DDR4-2400+ SODIMMs RAM capable of holding up to 32GB of memory. They also have dual M.2 slots for fast storage.

What's even more interesting is the fact that one of the HDMI ports on the front of the unit will be able to be used to plug in a Virtual Reality headset.

The consumer version, Bean Canyon, will ship in the middle of the year, Intel's John Detherage told me at a hands-on event at the company's CES booth.
