The NUC8i7HVK is Hades Canyon, and it's perhaps one of the most powerful NUCs every made. It features Intel's new i7-8809G, which uses an 8th generation CPU but also Radeon RX Vega M graphics. It's also a 100W part, and the NUC had to be redesigned to facilitate this much higher TDP.
We reviewed the Skull Canyon NUC before, and the Hades Canyon NUC is the natural progression of the product. Skull Canyon was the first of its kind; it offered up the latest Iris Pro graphics at that time with a powerful mobile CPU, and it facilitated the latest features and storage standards.
The Hades Canyon upgrades to a Vega based graphics core with HBM on the package. Using Intel's latest embedded multi-die interconnect bridge (EMIB), they were able to link the Vega graphics to the CPU core while maintaining high performance. Let's take a look at the new Hades Canyon NUC.
We get an Intel i7-8809G processor which is four cores and eight threads with a Turbo up to 4.2GHz, and it has 8MB of cache. We get two SO-DIMMs that support up to 32GB at 2400MHz+. The CPU/GPU 8809G has a 100W TDP. The chipset has an SSPEC marked SR30W, which seems to be an HM175 chipset. The CPU is unlocked as is the GPU so that you can overclock both along with memory.
Intel's recommended price for the NUC8i7HVK is $910.00 as a barebones product.
