The company has taken to social media to reveal its plans to introduce its most powerful NUC to date. While numerous systems may fall within the 4×4 size category, which defines the system’s dimensions, this upcoming release will be distinguished as the first model to feature an Intel Core i9 CPU in this particular form factor.

While there is no scarcity of NUC-sized systems fueled by the Ryzen 9 7940HS, as shown even by SimplyNUC’s current offering of Moonstone system, the eagerly anticipated upcoming product codenamed “Onyx” is set to house a Core i9 CPU.

SimplyNUC has refrained from disclosing the specific generation of Intel CPU that the new system will incorporate. Nonetheless, the selection spans across various options from both the current and previous generations. It’s important to bear in mind that the 13th Gen Core-P series lacks Core i9 CPUs. On the contrary, Intel’s Core-H lineup boasts a considerable range of Core i9 SKUs, ranging from 14 cores in the Core i9-13900H to 24 cores in the Core i9-13950HX.

Given the constrained form factor, it might be logical to assume a maximum 45W TDP. However, it’s worth acknowledging that existing Mini-PCs released in the last few weeks already come with higher default TDPs out of the box. For instance, the Beelink GTR7 Pro operates with a 65W TDP, and the Minisforum UM790 Pro utilizes 54W, although both exceed the 4×4-inch size constraint. Both systems are also powered by AMD Ryzen 9 7940HS APU with 8 Zen4 cores.

Worth adding that another company called Minisforum is already planning to launch its first Mini-PC with Intel Core-HX and AMD Dragon Range-HX processors that should feature up to 24 Intel hybrid cores or 16 Zen4 cores. This system, however, will be using a much larger 6 liter chassis.
