The new Minisforum NUC X15 and X17 Mini-PCs are powered by the new Intel NUC X15, featuring Intel's 11th Gen Core "Tiger Lake" CPUs -- the Minisforum X15I5 packs an Intel Core i5-11400H CPU + NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 GPU -- offering 6 cores and 12 threads at up to 4.5GHz.

NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3060 Mobile GPU is inside, using the GA106 GPU and 6GB of GDDR6 memory, but the higher-end model bumps up those specs a bit. Minisforum's higher-end NUCX17 uses the Core i7-12800H processor (8 cores and 16 threads) while we've got the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Mobile GPU, with 8GB of GDDR6 memory on a 256-bit memory bus.

Both of the systems support up to 64GB of DDR4-3200 RAM, 2 x M.2 2280 PCIe slots for M.2 SSDs, as well as 1 x HDMI output and 1 x Thunderbolt 4 for connectivity. There's also enthusiast-grade 2.5GbE networking, 3 x USB 3.2 Type-A ports, headphone jack and an SD card reader.

As for the design, Minisforum is using a super-slim design with a perforated shroud for ventilating heat, while because these systems are part of the Intel NUC family of systems, they have the iconic Intel "skull" logo for branding.
