Recently, Apple’s new Mac computers equipped with the M1 chip have performed beyond everyone’s expectations. They have greatly changed the trend of the current notebook computer market. In addition, this year, the next door AMD’s efforts on mobile processors have made Intel feel more or less. Before and after the enemy, but Intel still maintains its own rhythm, and now in order to popularize the Tiger Lake architecture notebook, Intel made a notebook computer, named NUC M15.
Intel’s NUC was originally used as a series of mini-PC hosts, but in recent years, Intel has not been limited to NUC but just a little guy. They have made high-performance Pluto Canyon and Ghost Canyon versions of NUC, and now they have expanded to do A 15.6-inch thin and light notebook with an aluminum-magnesium alloy body with a thickness of 14.9mm and a weight of 1.65kg.
The inside of this NUC M15 is naturally equipped with Intel’s 11th-generation Tiger Lake architecture processor, which can play up to 28W TDP performance. With Iris Xe Graphic, it can provide good gaming capabilities, but its memory is soldered on the motherboard. This is not common in the current 15.6-inch notebook, and the capacity is only 8GB or 16GB options.
Intel also mentioned that this NUC M15 was derived from their Project Athena project, but it is not the Evo platform certification that Intel pushed hard this year, but it has a complete range of connectivity capabilities, including Wi-Fi 6 wireless connection, Thunderbolt 4 Interface, Type-C USB 4, and 10Gbps USB Type-A interface, etc.
This Intel laptop is actually a Kit, which means that they will not put the Intel logo on them for sale. Instead, they will sell them on the market by some small and medium-sized brands. This makes it easy for them to develop and design themselves without spending costs to speed up the distribution. And scope. It is said that the foundry of this M15 notebook is actually Tongfang. In the past, Intel also designed a gaming notebook MAG-15, which was also made by Tongfang.
The price of the NUC M15 starts at US$999, depending on the configuration (should refer to memory and SSD capacity), it can be as high as US$1499, but the actual price depends on the pricing of various partners, and the final product will be early next year Listed sometime.
