The ASRock NUCS BOX-1300 is one of the first compact desktop computers powered by a 28-watt, 13th-gen Intel Core P-series processor based on Intel’s Raptor Lake architecture.

First announced during CES in January, the NUCS BOX-1300 is now available for purchase Newegg is selling a barebones model with an Intel Core i5-1340P processor for $550 and a Core i7-1360P model for $690.

Both versions of the little computer measure 110 x 117.6 x 38mm (4.6″ x 4.3″ x 1.5″) and have two SODIMM slots for up to 64GB of DDR4-3200 memory and an M.2 2280 slot for PCIe Gen 4 x4 solid state storage.

Ports include:

  • 1 x USB4
  • 1 x USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C (w/DisplayPort 1.4 Alt Mode)
  • 4 x USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A
  • 2 x HDMI 2.0b
  • 1 x 2.5 GbE Ethernet
  • 1 x 3.5mm audio
  • 1 x DC power input

The system comes with a 19V/90W power supply and a wireless card featuring support for WiFi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2.

Intel’s Core i5-1340P and Core i7-1360P chips are both 12-core, 16-thread chips with four Performance cores and eight Efficiency cores. But the Core i7 chip has P-cores that can hit top speeds up to 5 GHz and E-cores that top out at 3.7 GHz, while the Core i5 processor’s CPU cores max out at 4.6 GHz and 3.4 GHz, respectively.

And while both processors feature Intel Iris Xe integrated graphics, the iGPU in the Core i7 chip has 96 execution units and a max frequency of 1.5 GHz compared with 80 execution units and 1.45 GHz for the Core i5 processor.

    1. It’s nice apart from the dearth of ports. Two more USB-A ports on the rear would make it a no-brainer.

        1. If only these Mini PCs had a PCie slot, and removable CPUs. It would be neat to get one unit which you could upgrade through the years. Otherwise it feels very pointless having access to the M.2 and RAM Slots… they may as well be soldered on the board, and you choose the correct amount.

          The cult-classic movement started 15 Years ago, when enthusiasts would buy/take Office PCs and upgrade their components. Their CPUs, RAM, HDD, and even dGPUs. The last-good unit was around 2016 and priced close to a PS4 but was much faster (Dell OptiPlex SFF, i7-3770, GTX 1050Ti). Pretty poor value, but the Lenovo M920s is decently specced by today’s standards (i9-9900, RTX A2000).

          1. FWIW, the ProDesk mini desktops from HP, and similar machines from Dell and Lenovo, typically have socketed CPUs and a m.2 PCI-E slot for the wireless card, along with the requisite RAM and m.2 NVMe slots. They are a bit larger footprint than the NUC style boxes, more akin to Mac mini size, but they are also more versatile and previous generation machines are often available for a bargain on sites like eBay and Woot.

      1. For this price point without a Thunderbolt connection is really hard for consumers to digest
