Intel has a new mini desktop computer on the way with support for up to a 12th-gen Intel Core i7 processor featuring 12 cores, 16 threads, and Intel Iris Xe integrated graphics.

Code-named Wall Street Canyon, the next-gen Intel NUC computer will most called the NUC 12 or NUC 12 Pro when it hits the streets later this year.

While Intel hasn’t officially introduced the new computer yet, the folks at Chinese website Chiphell have gotten an early look, and report that the new Wall Street Canyon NUC is aimed at both personal and business users and will supports 28-watt Intel processors including some models with vPro features, including:

  • Intel Core i7-1270P
  • Intel Core i7-1260P
  • Intel Core i5-1250P
  • Intel Core i5-1240P
  • Intel Core i3-1220P

As usual, the new NUC will measure about 4.6″ x 4.4″ and come in two sizes: a short model that measures about 1.6″ high and which only has room for an SSD inside the case and a 2″ tall model with room for a 2.5 inch hard drive or SSD. Chiphell says the tall version will be available first, with the short version coming later.

Ports are said to include:

Rear ports:

  • 2 x Thunderbolt 4
  • 1 x HDMI 2.0b
  • 1 x DisplayPort  1.4
  • 1 x 2.5 Gbps Ethernet
  • 1 x USB 3.2 Type-A
  • 1 x USB 2.0 Type-A

Front ports:

  • 2 x USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A
  • 1 x 3.5mm audio

Intel may offer at least some models with a top cover that acts as a Qi wireless charging pad, allowing you to charge a phone or other gadgets simply by placing it on top of the little computer.

Under the hood, there are two SODIMM slots with support for DDR4-3200 memory, a PCIe 4.0 x4 M.2 2280 slot for solid state storage, and an Intel AX211 wireless card with support for WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2.

You can find more pictures plus benchmark performance results at Chiphell. One thing that I’m happy to hear is that not only does the new NUC 12 Pro offer better performance than models with 11th-gen and earlier processors, but Chiphell reports cooling performance seems to have improved and there’s less fan noise when using the Wall Street Canyon NUC.

  1. Great to see the 3.5mm audio jack coming back in the Pro model, but 28W CPU means 24x7x365 operation. It mirrors what the previous year NUC 11 Pro is meant for in the first place.

    1. I don’t know where you get your news, but it’s fake. Intel stopped shipping ALL chips to Russia a month ago.

      1. Sorry Bert, but “stop shipping chips” does not mean a “lay off of their Russian employee pool.” Like most of the companies, the chip export cutoff merely an exercise in PR optics while unbeknownst to the masses outside Russia, everything else is mostly business as usual. As you can read here, their Russian teams are still employed:

        Businesses love to make you think they are your family and they got your back, but when you fall for that ruse, you are seriously duped.

    2. They’re also still doing business in the united states and financing a criminal government in washington DC, and in china financing a criminal government in beijing, but you don’t hear me complaining about it because life gets harder if you complain about anything except what the TV tells you to.
      Have I not said this before? Every single company I’ve ever heard of is guilty of some wrongdoing that they’ll probably never be punished for, or has someone working there who is, and deserves to go out of business, with everyone suffering the consequences they themselves deserve for enabling that behavior.
