Performance hits the next level with Intel® NUC Mini PCs built with the 8th Gen Intel® Core™ i5+/ i7+ platforms that feature Intel® Optane™ memory. The fully built Intel® NUC Mini PCs are optimized to work the way your clients do—and are designed with the latest technology from Intel and Windows* 10. Call it impatience or modern life, clients expect things instantly. That’s why the fully built Intel® NUC Mini PCs with 8th Gen Intel® Core™ i+ platforms with Intel® Optane™ technology are designed to help computers keep pace with the digital world without running out of storage.

The Platform That Gives You the Power for Amazing Experiences
The Intel® NUC8i7BEHGA and Intel® NUC8i5BEHFA Mini PCs come equipped with either an 8th Gen Intel® Core™ i7+ or 8th Gen Intel® Core™ i5+ platform featuring Intel® Optane™ memory. Whether used to play games, create video content, or mega task, both systems give great visual immersion with Iris® Plus graphics 655 and the user optimized performance of 8th Gen Intel® Core™ i5+/i7+ platforms.

Intel® Optane™ Memory: Next-Level Performance and Personalization
The NUC8i7BEHGA comes with 32 GB of Intel® Optane™ memory as part of the 8th Gen Intel® Core™ i7+ platform along with a 2 TB HDD. The NUC8i5BEHFA is built with 16 GB of Intel® Optane™ memory and a 1 TB HDD. By coupling an HDD and Intel® Optane™ memory, performance improves dramatically with up to 1.4x1 2 faster media loading, opening large media files 3x3 2 faster, and completing daily tasks up to 2x4 2 faster. A PC powered by Intel’s 8th Gen Core i5+/i7+ platforms featuring Intel® Optane™ memory learns, adapts, and accelerates tasks your clients do most often in order to keep creativity flowing.

With Thunderbolt™ 3 Plus USB 3.1 for Fast Data Transfer
The NUC8i7BEHGA and NUC8i5BEHFA Mini PCs have chassis that are connectivity powerhouses. Both Mini PCs come with Thunderbolt™ 3 which supports up to 40 Gbps of data transfer and four USB 3.1 ports to bolster productivity and to move big media files around, as well as room enough for peripherals and then some. The Mini PCs support 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—these Intel® NUC Mini PCs have the performance and features of a desktop computer in a device that fits in the palm of your hand. The small size means the Intel® NUCs can be positioned anywhere—from behind a display to tucked discretely in an entertainment center. And with improved cooling, fan noise is minimal—so it doesn’t sound like there’s a PC in the living room if the Intel® NUC system is used for gaming or home entertainment.
