Core Z690 NUC Workstation

This small form factor system features Intel’s Core 12th Gen processor platform with their compact Dragon Canyon NUC compute element and chassis. The Core line is Intel’s mainstream CPU family, offering up to 24 threads on an affordable platform, and the specific model included here is the Core i9 12900.

The Dragon Canyon NUC chassis has USB and audio ports along the bottom front, while the rear I/O panel provides more USB ports, Thunderbolt 4, additional audio connectivity, and both 10Gb Ethernet and WiFi for networking. The interior of the case is very limited, due to its small size, but there is a PCI-Express slot and enough room for one dual-width video card. For memory and storage, up to 64GB of RAM and three NVMe SSDs are supported. There are also plenty of fans to keep components cool without being too loud.
