- Intel i7 8559U
- Intel Iris Plus 655
This one would be an interesting upgrade to be honest..INFO ON NUC 9 engineering sample.
Looks like cooling is improved and needs to be but still has heat issues. "Intel has placed a pair of 80mm cooling fans up top to expel the hot air from the NUC."
"It also has one M.2 2280 port and M.2 22110 port. In total, you install up to three M.2 PCIe or SATA III SSDs on the Intel NUC 9 Extreme, two inside The Element and one on the backplane. RAID 0 and 1 arrays are supported."
- I have an unused 970Evo m.2 plus
- I can port the 960Evo sata (dual boot windows10 for gaming?)
- I can port the 32Gb Ram
- I can port the macos supported wifi/bt card ! ! !
But it's a downgrade gpu wise... Intel Iris plus 655 to Intel UHD Graphics 630. But I can add a dedicated gpu..
Wondering what the pricing is for these. I also think it's a shame they are quite a big bigger then the NUC8.
Support wise I already found 2 macs having the same cpu on everymac.com
