Intel NUC Serpent Canyon will be the next model in the chip giant’s own series of compact computers. It has appeared in Chinese media before its official announcement and it is confirmed that it is a gaming-focused enthusiast range version.

Intel NUC is the industry benchmark for mini-PCs. It has been on the market for many years and has stood out for its integration of components, compact size and good connectivity.
