Dual-Core 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i3 Processor and Intel® Optane™ Memory for Serious Multitasking
The Intel® NUC8i3BEHFA Mini PC with a true dual-core 8th Gen Intel® Core™ i3 processor delivers a big jump in performance compared to the previous generation. Whether it’s used for a new home PC or a system with 4K UHD graphics for picture perfect entertainment, the NUC8i3BEHFA Mini PC gives great visual immersion with Iris® Plus graphics 655 and the unprecedented performance of an Intel® Core™ processor.

The chassis has a 1 TB 2.5" HDD to store massive amounts of data and comes with 16 GB of Intel® Optane™ memory—which is expandable to 32 GB. By coupling an HDD and Intel® Optane™ memory, performance improves dramatically with up to 1.4x1 2 faster media loading. There’s also 4 GB of DDR4 RAM and is expandable to 32 GB. In addition, far-field, dual-mics allow you to add digital assistant software or utilize Cortana to handle simple tasks.

Work Like a Boss with Thunderbolt™ 3, USB 3.1, and 4K Ultra HD
The Intel® NUC Mini PC is a connectivity powerhouse. It comes with Thunderbolt™ 3 which supports up to 40 GBps of data transfer and four USB 3.1 ports. The NUC8i3BEHFA supports triple displays all in 4K Ultra HD—with an HDMI* 2.0a port and DisplayPort* 1.2 via USB-C—so images or work can show across three screens without losing fidelity.

Think You Know What Small Can Do? Think Again
In a footprint that’s almost zero—especially when compared with a tower—the NUC8i3BEHFA Mini PC has the performance and features of a desktop PC in a device that fits in the palm of your hand. The small size means the system can be placed almost anywhere—from behind a display to tucked discretely in an entertainment center. And with improved cooling, fan noise is minimal—which means a quieter experience no matter where the PC is positioned.
