Intel has finally released its first Kaby Lake-G product with Radeon Vega graphics, and it looks really good! On par with a 1050TIi, I'd say.

Our first experience with Intel's NUC8i7HVK leaves us impressed. The company crams an amazing amount of functionality into a very compact form factor. As we've come to expect from fast PCs in small cases, you'll have to pay a premium for such an uncommon combination. And even after spending $1000 on the barebones platform, memory, storage, and an OS still need to be added.

That's a lot of money for a nuc. Especially once you add memory and hardrives and os.

A lot of people always ask me about nuc's because they are so small but they are just so expensive.

Called the performance out back in January when everyone was saying better than a gtx 1060 max Q.

"I think the performance is more going to be along the lines of a card that bisects the difference between an Rx 560 and rx 570 with the performance a bit closer to the rx560, with the performance being closest to a gtx 1050 ti(maybe 5-10% faster). Vega just isn't a strong enough base for Vega's tlop/performance to match pascal's tflop/performance."

Add in the restricted power design in laptops vs this NUC(175 watts to 220watt peak) and it might be a tad below my estimates.

HBM is wasted on this GPU.

This NUC is a niche product, not really gaming oriented. For instance, my new work place would buy probably one of those cheaper variants, to serve as a Tensorflow computing PC for local needs. That is, if we get the devs to recompile Tensorflow for OpenCL as well :D

The performance seems a bit off. Its has 24 CU which is much more than RX 560 16 CU and its Vega architecture. On top of that, it has HBM2.

This shouldn't be seen as the ultimate platform. It's just a showcase. Imagine putting this into a platform that's more balanced overall? Like... any mobile i7 and then the Vega-M GPU. :p Once you can distribute power properly, you'll be good to go. For the right price, this would make a decent laptop. :) I just hope they don't try to stick something like this in a 13" ultrabook... too small, waaaay too small for the power this brings.
