  • Intel Hades Canon NUC Core i7 And Radeon RX Vega M Benchmarks Leak, 1080p Ultra Playable


    NUC8i7HVK Skull

    Intel first announced its Hades Canon NUC back at CES, and it packs quite a lot of power into a pint-sized package. While Intel NUCs don't generally get as much attention as they deserve, Hades Canyon is partially special given that it is powered by Intel's latest 8th generation Kaby Lake-G processors with on-package Radeon RX Vega M GPUs.

    Korean hardware site Playwares has posted the first benchmarks of Hades Canyon, which in this case is powered by a Core i7-8809G processor. This particular chip comes integrated with the most powerful version of AMD's Radeon RX Vega M, the "GH" SKU. With that in mind, take a look at the benchmarks below to get a feel for what kind of gaming performance to expect.



    Taken at face value, these numbers are looking quite good for those seeking a small, integrated PC gaming solution. The Core i7-8809G is packing a lot more GPU muscle than AMD's Ryzen 5 2400G "Raven Ridge” APUs -- as you would expect given its more premium pricing -- and that shows with the benchmark numbers. Benchmarks were performed at both default clocks and when overclocked.

    Things are looking especially good for the Core i7-8809G in the Rise of the Tomb Raider and The Division benchmarks at 1080p/Ultra presets. Overall, performance is about where we expected to see, and falls in line with the guidance that Intel provided. That means performance that should slot in between an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti and the GeForce GTX 1060.

    All of this sounds good, but we really need to see pricing to determine how viable a solution Hades Canyon will be for enthusiasts and gamers. Given that cryptocurrency miners have pretty much raided supplies of current generation GPUs from the low-end to the high-end, it will be interesting to see how Intel prices Hades Canyon (and Kaby Lake-G in general). With a relatively potent GPU under the hood, it could be an attractive proposition for gamers and crypto-miners alike, that otherwise might not be able to secure a GPU to further their mining obsessions, if the price is right.

      As you all probably know, Qualcomm and Microsoft worked together and launched always-on, always-connected Windows 10 mobile PCs powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 Arm processor earlier this year.

      Battery life is spectacular, but considering the fairly high price of such devices, many were disappointed by performancewhich in many cases is not much better than much cheaper Intel Apollo Lake laptops.

      Alongside the launch of Intel’s first 5 GHz processor, the 6-core Core i7-8086K, Intel today also showcased a 28-core single socket machine also running at 5 GHz. The system on display scored 7334 in Cinebench R15, and Gregory Bryant (SVP and GM of Intel Client Computing Group) explicitly stated that it would be coming in Q4 this year.

      No other details were provided, however for it to exist in a current platform, this new processor would likely be in LGA2066 (X299) or LGA3647
