This year marks the [10th] anniversary of our impressive lineup of Intel NUC products[.] The Intel NUC 13 Extreme (code-named Raptor Canyon) [represents] how far we’ve come. Our first-ever NUC demonstrated a breakthrough in the miniaturization of a small desktop PC into an ultra-small PC form factor. While much larger than our tiniest mini-PC, our latest Intel NUC 13 Extreme sets a new bar for how to pack stellar gaming performance in a form factor ... 70% smaller than a typical 50L gaming tower. Along with the epic performance you expect from an Intel NUC product, we also deliver exceptional product quality and feature density in a completely modular and customizable design.
