ASUS ROG NUC

These new machines come in a range of configurations. The entry-level machine features a Core Ultra 7 155H (16 cores: 6P10E 4.8 GHz) coupled with an RTX 4060. In terms of RAM and storage, we have 16 GB of memory and 512 GB of SSD storage.

The top-of-the-range model is even more powerful. Internally, it now features a Core Ultra 9 185H (16 cores: 6P10E 5.1 GHz) with a configuration similar to that of the Ultra 7. However, RAM and storage capacity have been doubled. Last but not least, the graphics section has been upgraded to RTX 4070.

These configurations are housed on an in-house-designed motherboard. As for cooling, the ASUS heatsink allows the CPU to operate at 65W, compared with a maximum of 140W for the GPU. Note that this configuration is housed in a case that occupies just 2.5l of volume!

Finally, connectivity features a card reader, two USB-A 3.2 Gen2 and a 3.5 mm audio jack on the front. At the rear, we find a Thunderbolt 4, two USB-A 3.2 Gen2, two USB-A 2.0, an HDMI, two DisplayPort 1.4a, an Ethernet and a Kesington lock. Ethernet benefits from a 2.5 GbE network chip, WiFi 6E is present, and audio is managed by Realtek ALC256.

Selling price? Expect to pay around €1,560 for the smallest model and €1,950 for the largest. Availability is scheduled from May 24.
