The latest addition to the lineup is the Intel NUC X15 Laptop Kit. It is a high-end gaming laptop with a 11th Gen Core CPU and NVIDIA RTX 30 graphics. It houses either Core i5-11400H Tiger Lake-H CPU or Core i7-11800H, a processor with 8-cores and 16-threads. Intel offers it in 5 variants, with GeForce RTX 3060 or RTX 3070 Laptop GPUs.

The NUC X15’s magnesium-alloy chassis accommodates a 15.6 inch 144Hz, 240Hz FullHD panel, or 165Hz QHD display. Unfortunately, Intel has not provided TGP values; hence it can not be said whether it is the Max-P or Max-Q GPU design.

The main highlights of NUC X15 are optomechanical keyboard switches, PCIe Gen4 storage support, Thunderbolt 4, and HDMI 2.1 connectors. Take note that PCIe Gen4 and Thunderbolt 4 are currently exclusive to Intel’s Tiger Lake-H-based laptops only.

Unfortunately, there is no pricing information yet.
