Intel has just launched its new NUC 12 Pro "Wall Street Canyon" which is based on the Intel 12th Gen Core "Alder Lake-P" series of CPUs. Check them out:
The new Intel NUC 12 Pro "Wall Street Canyon" was touted as a "Mac Studio killer" with the new NUC featuring a tiny 4x4-inch PCB design with the chassis available in both slim, and tall kits. The tall kit version of the NUC 12 Pro "Wall Street Canyon" has the ability to install an additional 2.5-inch storage drive.
Inside, you've got up to the Intel Core i7-1260P processor with 12 cores, the Core i5-1240P which also has 12 cores, or the Core i3-1220P with 10 cores. Each of the Intel 12th Gen Core "Alder Lake" CPUs comes with built-in Xe graphics with 96 Execution Units, 80 Execution Units, or 64 Execution Units on the respective Alder Lake CPUs.
