Intel today announced the NUC M15 Laptop Kit codenamed “Bishop County”, carrying out a project that has long been aimed at providing small OEMs with the foundation for making premium notebooks, all leveraging the experience and technology of ‘US company within the so-called whitebooks.
The road is the same pursued in the mini-PC field with products such as the recent ADATA XPG GAIA presented in September, based on the Intel NUC 9 Extreme Kit. Unlike the latter, however, the new NUC M15 Laptop is aimed at the PC market portable and, above all, uses the latest Intel Core 11th gen processors with 10nm manufacturing process.
The kit theoretically meets the requirements for the Intel EVO low-power platform, however we remind you that it is a certification that the various partners must obtain independently for each individual product. On board we therefore find a configuration with Intel Tiger Lake-U processors (no models specified) with integrated Intel Xe graphics and, probably, with all the latest technologies implemented by the company such as Thunderbolt 4, WiFi 6 in addition to Intel DL Boost and Intel GNA 2.0.
No details on the price which, given the cost of Intel NUC kits for mini-PCs, shouldn’t be that cheap
