Intel has outfitted this NUC with a feature you do not normally find with most other NUCs by equipping it with a Thunderbolt 3 port that lets you daisy chain multiple devices such as monitors and storage drives. You can also enhance the graphics capabilities of this NUC by utilizing a dedicated graphics card, which is housed in a Thunderbolt enclosure. Other notable ports included with this NUC are four USB 3.0 ports and two audio jacks along with an HDMI 2.0 port, mini-DisplayPort 1.2, and Gigabit Ethernet port. Aside from ports, an SDXC slot, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 4.2 wireless are on board. Included along with the NUC are an external power adapter and a VESA mount that attaches the NUC6i7KYK behind your display.

Quad-Core Skylake Intel Core i7 Performance

This NUC features a 2.6 GHz 6th-generation Skylake Intel Core i7-6770HQ processor, with 6MB of L3 cache. The Skylake processor uses less energy when compared to previous Intel processors. With Intel Turbo Boost Technology, the maximum clock rate this processor can achieve is 3.5 GHz. Having four cores also allows the NUC to run multiple programs at the same time without slowing down the system.

Intel Iris Pro Graphics

The Intel Iris Pro Graphics chipset with 4K display capabilities allows you to edit photos and videos like a professional or immerse yourself in seamless 3D gameplay, all in 4K on three monitors at once. With Intel Iris Pro graphics, the NUC can quickly convert media files and provide fast frame rates.

question

I have parts from an older MSI build, in which the MB (Z170 SLI plus) bricked when trying to flash bios! Want to build or install these parts in a mini case. I have MSI GTX970 OC GPU, delided 6700k processor, 2 XPG DDR4 8GB 2400 memory sticks and DVD optical. Obviously the CPU needs the Aestek cooler and some of the other parts, will not fit in this NUC. Just curious if Z boards and other hardware would utilize my parts, in this form factor or slightly larger?I tried building on my own with parts from Newegg and others, but had to send parts back multiple times, due to troublesome boards that wouldnt post. Although parts should have been compatible. Bread boarded my current parts with a friends older large Z board. Everything worked, just not on newer stuff such as ITX boards for some reason?Should I just stick with MSI newer Z boards for successful post and operability? Thanks

question

What types of SSDs (M.2) are compatible? Older s. 6 pins?
Asked by: Gary
Intel specifies the following for its Skull Canyon NUC: 2x M.2 - 22mm wide by 42 or 80mm long (key M) slots for SATA3 or PCIe* X4 Gen3 NVMe or AHCI SSDs. I believe you are referring to a key B slot SSD which can not be used.

question

With the addition of the 1tb SSD and 32gb ram, is the nuc then capable of running Adobe After Effects and Premiere for pro video. what are the drawbacks?
Asked by: Eddie M.
Regardless of how much SSD storage you include in the NUC, it will be able to run those programs but you will be missing a key component to the mix, the graphics card will help you alot with your editing workflow. You can add one in if you buy a thunderbolt to PCIe enclosure and purchase a separate GPU. all in all i would say this may not be your best option if you want to get into video editing.
