It is listed on intel's site to have one. You mean the cpu has igpu but it is not connected?
if that is the case it is strange

I am confused now, the TPC says:
  1. *The graphics outputs of the NUC8i7HV are not physically connected to the HD Graphics 630.

    but also:
The kit supports graphics computing through Intel® HDTM Graphics 630.

It hasn’t been able to activate HD 630 yet. Only the Vega on default MacOS drivers or by spoofing Kabylake IGPU which loads framebuffers but no the accelerators.
This is down by adding the 0x15FF the the info.plists. It will browse some apps but not to full potential.

Don’t know if anyone had tried lately with Mojave Kexts. Such a shame it would make a great Mac mini.

Very clear to me... It means that all video connectors are connected to to the Radeon and the HD630 is there just for QuickSync/etc, not for video output.

That’s what I’ve read as well + testing seems to confirm.

If you only need Intel graphics, there are other NUCs that are a better choice. And less expensive too.

Hello everyone, i'm so happy¨¨
Did this there https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/nuc8-intel-core-i7-8705g-radeon-rx-vega-m-graphics.252380/
after updating to the last Bios first, works like a Charm...
At Stock Speed 18224 GB4 multi-core https://browser.geekbench.com/v4/cpu/8588548
At 4.5Ghz all Cores 19405 GB4 https://browser.geekbench.com/v4/cpu/8599977
and 5822 Single-Core Score https://browser.geekbench.com/v4/cpu/8600061
Fastest Mac Mini ever!! As it should have been...
With Samsung 970 EVO SSD NVME right out of the Box recognise with Apple ssd original driver and Trim score 3000 MB/S read speed and 2400MB/S Write speed on Black Magic Disk speed and AJA Disk Speed test....
WAOW....
No problem to sign in Apple Account and download all my softwares!! out of the box....
No sound yet, but don't care, i use USB natively compliant sound card perfectly recognise
all USB port works, even the USB-C 3.1 Gen 2 at 900MB/S read speed measured with Black Magic on my SanDisk Extreme 900 !!
No graphic hardware support yet, don't care, don't play on Mac, No slow down caused with this issue with my Audio DAW Pro software: Logic Pro X 10.4.1 Cubase 9 or Studio One 4 !!!
No TB3 yet
Would say as George Clooney... What else?... do i need ... Nothing sir... everything perfect... thank you intel, thank you Apple and thank you TonyMacx86 for making that possible... ( for 999$ only the Nuc, plus 970EVO plus RAM of course at your choice)

Can you confirm if it can run latest mainstage please??

If anyone is using the Hades: does it work with Mojave? And, lacking acceleration, how good/bad is video performance for regular 2D use? (No video or gaming.)

I haven't been able to get it to even boot past the apple logo. I'm using the most current bios (0049.bio) and tonymac's Clover 4586 with Mojave installer.

Check your clover/drivers64EFI folder.
