Kaby Lake-G processors. Intel has announced the decommissioning of the NUC Hades Canyon mini-PC. The model debuted two years ago on the 8th generation Intel Core Kaby Lake-G processors.
The Hades Canyon mini PC replaced Skull Canyon and became the first NUC with processors created not only by Intel. Kaby Lake-G processors were a rare example of competitors such as AMD and Intel teaming up. These processors use Intel Kaby Lake microarchitecture and AMD Vega graphics.
Intel discontinued Kaby Lake-G processors last October. So the cancellation of the NUC Hades Canyon was only a matter of time.
Intel has posted a new change notice (Product Change Notification, PCN) on its website, with NUC8i7HNK and NUC8i7HVK kits cancelled. Both devices are based on the quad-core Kaby Lake-G – NUC8i7HNK based on Core i7-8705G, and NUC8i7HVK – on Core i7-8809G.
Of course, Intel NUC8i7HNK and NUC8i7HVK won’t disappear from the shelves instantly. Intel has given customers the opportunity to place the latest orders until November 27. The last deliveries will be made on January 29, 2021
