Doesn't matter. In the UK, it's not easy to find the 11th gen standard NUCS, let alone the 2060 unit. That is, unless you're willing to be ripped off by simplynuc.

"That may not be sufficient to feed the more power-hungry graphics cards, though it's an upgrade over Ghost Canyon's modest 500W unit. On the other hand, the supported CPUs are all 65W or lower parts. "

How sure are we that this is locked at 65W? Considering that we see 11800H drawing over 90W when boosting, I believe it is highly possible that Intel may allow for a higher PL2 on this NUC.

Assuming this is using a quality 650W, it is plenty for even a 3080Ti which is the highest TDP card you could fit in this. You're not going to get a 65w CPU plus the rest of the system up to 300W.

Is there a big difference between the i9-11900KB and the i7-11700B? I'm not seeing anything in the chart to justify the price of the upgrade. Another 100mhz, but what's that really worth? $200? For real? I don't see the i9 as being a very good value. Even the i5 doesn't seem like much of a value, when the i7 is just $100 more with more cores/threads, and higher clocks. I think they'll sell a lot of i7's, the i5 and i9, not so much.

I'm sorry, but Ghost Canyon was a far more Aesthetically pleasing NUC design with several fundamental flaws.

This is several steps backwards in case design IMO, and all that ugly RGB rainbow puke with that tacky skull in the front.

UGH

Probably irrelevant since they wont be readily available just like the Phantom Canyon with RTX 2060
