The current Intel "King County" NUC acts as Intel's reference Laptop Kit (NUC X15) and features a high-performance laptop design with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Laptop GPU, or GeForce RTX 3060 Laptop GPU. The next-gen "Alder County" NUC would have an "Alder Lake-P" processor and Intel Arc GPU.

The new Alder County NUC will be the first-ever all-Intel high-end gaming laptop reference design, and will be an exciting start for gaming laptop companies to build in 2022 and beyond. Intel should have as many if not more partners for its new Alder County NUC as it does now, where it has the likes of Acer, ASUS, GIGABYTE, HP, Lenovo, Samsung, MSI, and others.
