Intel will no longer make NUC products

ServeTheHome is the first to break the news of Intel abandoning its NUC business. 

The rumors were swirling since yesterday that Intel might cancel its NUC products. The company had an internal meeting confirming its plans to stop direct investment into its NUC business units. Those rumors have now been confirmed.

According to the report, Intel has sent out an email confirming that no further investment will be made into the NUC (Next Unit of Compute) business unit. This unit was responsible for a plethora of products, including Mini-PC, laptop reference systems and more. However, most consumers should remember NUC for its small form factor systems, including gaming oriented thin designs (Canyon series) compromising all Intel hardware in the most recent release.

Intel official statement (shared first by HardwareLuxx):

We have decided to stop direct investment in the Next Unit of Compute (NUC) Business and pivot our strategy to enable our ecosystem partners to continue NUC innovation and growth. This decision will not impact the remainder of Intel’s Client Computing Group (CCG) or Network and Edge Computing (NEX) businesses. Furthermore, we are working with our partners and customers to ensure a smooth transition and fulfillment of all our current commitments.

The Intel NUC were typically a barebone systems, which means they came without essential components like memory, storage, and an operating system. Users can customize the NUC by adding their preferred components to meet their specific requirements. The NUC kits usually include the motherboard, CPU, and integrated graphics.

The most recent release featured the rugged NUC 13 “Bravo Canyon”, business NUC 13 PRO “Arena Canyon” and NUC 13 Extreme “Raptor Canyon”, which was more of a full fledged gaming PC than a small form factor design.
