Massive performance, small size
Intel® NUC 12 Enthusiast Kits deliver performance with a 12th Gen Intel® Core™ processor paired with Intel® Arc™ discrete graphics.
Built for the next generation of creativity
Creators and gamers can unleash their imagination with immersive graphics, lightning-fast connectivity, and stream-ready performance—all in a slim PC that fits discreetly into any room.
12th Gen Intel Core processors feature new performance hybrid architecture, a combination of powerful Performance-cores (P-cores) for demanding tasks and smaller Efficient-cores (E-cores) for background tasks. Intel® Thread Director assigns workloads to the right cores to optimize performance, like editing videos in the foreground with P-cores while E-cores efficiently import photos in the background.
Elevate your creativity
Unleash your imagination with Intel® Arc discrete graphics—the first graphics card supporting all current leading media formats, augmented by AI and accelerated by Intel® Deep Link technology.
AV1 codec—the future of video
Intel Arc GPUs are the world’s first to offer hardware-accelerated encoding for AV1, the next-gen video codec. That’s a game changer for creators who want to be ready for the next wave of rich media.1
Accelerate workloads with Intel® Deep Link Technology
Intel® Deep Link technology accelerates compute-intensive tasks. With Hyper Encode, multiple media engines found on the 12th Gen Intel® Core™ processor and Intel® Arc™ graphics work in conjunction for fast media exports.
Upscale graphics with AI-enhanced XeSS
Intel® Xe Super Sampling technology (XeSS) uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) to upscale lower-resolution images like 1080p to look like 4K. The result? Immersive experiences with high-resolution, high-fidelity visuals at high refresh rates—without bogging down PC performance.
More thrills, mini size
Tuck these mini PCs wherever you want—under a monitor at the studio, in a cabinet, or in your hand on the way to a LAN party. Nobody will notice that the system is there, but they will notice what it can do—all the power of a tower at a fraction of the size.
