NVIDIA’s GPU would be a nice match for the PC’s i9-13900K
Whenever we talk about the GeForce RTX 4090, whatever the model, the size (and consumption) of the card is always a recurring subject. Even a giant, small PC Intel NUC 13 Extreme “Raptor Canyon” can support the strongest (and largest) graphics card on the market today.
The Chinese website “163” got their hands on an Intel mini PC, which is the strongest of the company’s entire NUC lineup, and soon put an RTX 4090 inside it. It was not possible to perform some tests, such as measuring the temperature in such a small space, since the power supply of the mini PC is 750Wbelow the 850 W recommendation. But from the photos, it looks like the small PC offers room for larger fonts.

Curiosities aside, the NUC 13 Extreme “Raptor Canyon” is a powerful computer equipped with a i9-13900KIntel’s current high-end mainstream CPU, equipped with 24 cores (8P+16E) and 32 threads, a Asus RTX 3080 Ti TUF Gamingwhich is a big three-fan board, and 32GB DDR5-4800supporting 64 GB of memory.

Intel’s top-of-the-line CPU, which in this NUC is not yet a final SKU, since the mini PC is still a prototype, has two consumption modes, PL1 (150 W) and PL2 (250 W), and even a energy saving mode consuming 120 W through NUC Control Center software.

Regarding the hardware temperature, the Core i9-13900K reached a maximum of 85°C in synthetic benchmarks such as Cinebench R23, testing that the CPU reached 2,193 (single-core) and 35,478 (multi-core) points. The RTX 3080 Ti peaked at 67°C with Furmark, which is not bad for a mini PC.
The mini PC’s hardware, such as the CPU, SSD, and RAM, resides on a separate board called the NUC 13 Compute Element. This is equipped with two fans. One cools the heatpipes that are connected to a heatsink, and the other is a blower model that blows the air out.
The super small NUC 13 Extreme “Raptor Canyon” computer, which even holds an RTX 4090, does not yet have a release date.
