    So no DDR5 memory subsystem as some predicted. Reports too of higher power requirements than Rocket Lake. It's starting to look like a bit of a dog...

    Re: Intel NUC 12 Enthusiast datasheet leaks

    Ill be honest, I have been waiting for this, and I am extremely disappointed to see it not have DDR5 and not have PCIE gen5.

    If you are going to call a product a Enthusiast line, and it is late in 2021 with both DDR5 and PCIE5 right around the corner, then release it with the newest tech. Who is the dunce at Intel that missed this launch opportunity?

    Higher numbers = better?

    Well, it is good to have early adopters willing to overpay for what will quickly become the DDR5 equivalent of DDR4-2133. The more earlier adapters, the sooner DDR5 truly becomes mainstream for the more sensible buyers later.

    As for PCIe 5: isn't that again just higher numbers for higher numbers sake? PCIe 3.0 is still plenty for GPUs, while PCIe 4.0 is only starting to become more common for NVMe controllers. Plus did the X570 chipsets require a fan have anything to do with PCIe 4.0 being power hungry? Cannot see PCIe 5.0 being any different then.

    Don't get me wrong: progress is good, but being obsessed on certain number makes little sense. Especially since memory transitions have always been slower than forecast and at higher prices too.

    Has anyone actually managed to buy a small NUC11 device? Other than from rip off simplynuc? In the U.K. it's all, 'ordered upon request'. None on eBay or Amazon (unless you pay nearly double).

    NUC/micro-PC etc are niche products and the reason being is the no-brainier high prices that compete with similarly performed easily up-gradable proper desktop. Where do you get a PSU/Power brick for such products in an emergency? the spare parts are not off-the-shelf like laptops/real desktop. Smaller=cheaper is a formula that these tech companies should embrace or the RND cash will go down the drain.

    We have a whole heap of them in work. They sip power and probably save us a small amount of cash each year. Not a great deal, but there you go. They make for a perfect office computer.

    Can't even buy a NUC 11 anywhere and there's talk of NUC 12.
