GEEKOM Mini IT13 Packs Core i9 into 4×4 NUC Chassis: 14-Cores NUC

Whereas Intel’s basic 4×4 NUCs have been fairly highly effective techniques able to dealing with demanding workloads, the corporate by no means cared to put in its top-of-the-range CPUs into its compact PCs. GEEKOM apparently determined to repair this and this week launched its Mini IT13: the business’s first 4×4 desktop with an Intel Core i9 processor, providing with 14 CPU cores inside. 

The Mini IT13 from GEEKOM measures 117 mm × 112 mm × 49.2 mm, making it as small as Intel’s basic NUC techniques. Regardless of its compact dimension, it could actually pack Intel’s mobile-focused 14-core Core i9-13900H (6P+8E cores, 20 threads, as much as 5.40 GHz, 24 MB cache, 45W) that comes with built-in Xe graphics processing unit with enhanced efficiency (Xe-LP, 96 EUs or 768 stream processors at as much as 1.50 GHz). 

To keep up constant efficiency of the CPU and keep away from overheating and efficiency drops of even beneath important masses, the system employs a blower-style cooler, which produces as much as 43.6 dBA of noise, so the machine is just not precisely whisper fairly to say the least.

The compact PC helps  as much as 64 GB of DDR4 reminiscence by way of two SODIMMs, an M.2-2280 with a PCIe 4.0 x4interface and an M.2-2242 SSD with a SATA interface, and a further 2.5-inch HDD or SSD for extra in depth storage.

So far as connectivity is anxious, the GEEKOM Mini IT13 comes with a Wi-Fi 6E+ Bluetooth 5.2 module, a 2.5 GbE port, two USB4 connectors, three USB 3.2 Gen2 ports, one USB 2.0 Kind-A connector, two HDMI 2.0 outputs (along with two DPs supported by way of USB4), an SD card reader, and a TRRS audio jack for headphones. 

Though GEEKOM doesn’t straight point out it, the USB4 ports doubtlessly permit to attach an exterior graphics card in an eGFX enclosure and make the Mini IT13 a fairly respectable gaming machine. In the meantime, even with out an exterior graphics card, the unit can assist as much as 4 shows concurrently.

Curiously, the GEEKOM IT13 machine doesn’t value an arm and a leg. The most affordable model with Core i5-13500H, 16 GB of RAM, and a 512 GB SSD might be bought for $499, whereas the costliest mannequin with Core i9-13900H, 32 GB of reminiscence, and a couple of TB of solid-state storage prices $789.
