NUC 10 gen has Intel UHD 620 graphic.
Here a link with full review :
I think it semantic, most websites including Intel's list it as Intel® UHD Graphics. Early on Tom's Hardware reported the same thing, 620 Graphics, but then changed the information in a later article to reflect the above. Meanwhile it's not as if any on NUCs have great graphics performance, they are basically laptops without a screen or keyboard. It's all about the form factor and not the kind of platform you'd use to game or code.
It's too bad Apple used different CPUs so we are hampered by CPU emulation but not a deal breaker for me. What do you use your NUC for?

What configuration are you running? Can you post your EFI folder? I have the same nuc10i7, but have sleep problems.

See here for EFI uploads thanks to the collective effort here and on the other thread. #894

dolgarrenan,
any news about perfectly running TB3 ACPI ?
My CalDigit TB3 Dock doesn't work after restart - the only help is to re-plug it when MacOS is running.
I also tried this - but it hangs at start.

svandive, daTscharlie - where are you, don't sleep)) how are you guys advancing in making NUC10 stable?
As for me, I switched from MacBook Pro 13 2017 to NUC as main machine and I am quite happy with it despite the following:
1. Still no AppleALC native support
2. Hack loses my TB3 dock on restart
3. CPU emulation
4. No native graphics card support (no native device-id)

AppleALC native support since AppleALC 1.5.2 for internal RealTek audio

Ok simple question . What GPU is inside NUC 10 gen ? No on the world can answer on a simple question ?
UHD GT2 as has been reported by the latest major linux distributions and therefore no support from apple because they don't sell any devices with this gpu. In the meantime go with acidanthera's advice @ https://github.com/acidanthera/WhateverGreen/blob/master/Manual/FAQ.IntelHD.en.md and use

hello everyone,

I upgraded to Opencore 0.6.1, run my config plist against the OpenCore config.plist Sanity Checker with the Desktop: 10th Gen defaults.

  • It boots normally still, Catalina 10.15.6 19G2021
  • Same scores on the geekbench:
    # Name Platform Architecture Single-core Score Multi-core Score
    3782401 Macmini8,1Intel Core i7-10710U 1600 MHz (6 cores) macOS 64 x86_64 1094 4967
  • Using latest kexts from: https://downloads.tlhub.cn
  • USB, sleep works (although once I left the computer sleep almost 24 hrs..I couldn't get it to resume from sleep. Had to do a hard restart, it work normally after that). Short sleeps of a few hours to all night, 12 hrs, it resumes fine, no issues..using 1440p 144hz monitor works without issues over HDMI
  • Got an EGPU, Razer Core v2 along with Radeon XT 5700, I can't get it to work at all. Even when I do a restart and is already connected via TB3, it hangs on boot. It looks I have to do some type of firmware flashing which I won't risk it. It works perfectly when booting natively on Windows 10 (heck RPCS3, Cemu and Dolphin emulators work perfectly with an occasional slowdown here and there)
I use it mostly as a daily driver: email, browser, YouTube, Office for Mac, all works pretty good so far!
