Inside, the ASUS ROG NUC system will feature up to an Intel Core Ultra 9 185H "Meteor Lake" CPU that features 16 cores and 22 threads, part of Intel's Meteor Lake-H series high-end processors. We have a CPU boost speed of up to 5.1GHz, with a default TDP of 45W.

The CPU itself comes with Arc Xe-LPG graphics on-board, with a full 8 x Xe-Core configuration, but there's also a discrete GPU inside of the ASUS ROG NUC compact gaming PC in the form of NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 4070 Laptop GPU with 8GB of GDDR6 memory and a locked 115W TGP with optional Dynamic Boost of up to 140W.

ASUS has confirmed that the Intel Core Ultra CPU can be unlocked into a 65W TDP mode, so it seems the company has no plans to power lock the components (which is nice to see). The new ASUS ROG NUC compact gaming PC is available in Germany for 2500 euros, with the Core Ultra 9 185H processor, RTX 4070 Laptop GPU, 32GB of DDR5-5600 memory, and 1TB of SSD storage.

It's expensive, but this is a price comparable to a higher-end gaming laptop -- albeit, without the display obviously -- and great for someone who wants a powerful gaming PC without the gigantic size of a desktop system.
