Up to a Core i9-12900 65W Alder Lake CPU will be available in the Intel NUC 12 Extreme “Dragon Canyon” (VideoCardz)

  • The 12th Generation NUC introduces several significant upgrades to the series, including the addition of a desktop CPU socket. The NUC 12 Compute Element now has a desktop LGA1700 socket, which means it can operate with any LGA1700 SKU under 65W if the BIOS supports it.
  • However, the laptop will be available with either Core i9-12900 or Core i7-12700 Alder Lake processors. Because Intel does not intend to sell the NUC 12 Extreme without the CPU, there is no need to upgrade the CPU unless… In the future, the Intel NUC 12E will support Raptor Lake CPUs.
  • Interestingly, the NUC 12 Extreme does not employ DDR5 memory, instead opting for the DDR4-3200 standard, which supports up to 64GB of storage. Those are the same specifications as the NUC 11 Extreme. Because this device comes without memory, obtaining DDR4 SODIMM modules should be much easier.
