EXCLUSIVE: ALL Coffee Lake NUCs will feature eDRAM

As we exclusively reported last year, Intel is ditching 15W processors in the NUC for more capable 28W chips, and positioning its diminutive barebone as a legit desktop replacement.

Featuring the i3-8109U (2C/4T up to 3.60 GHz, 4 MB cache), i5-8259U (4C/8T up to 3.80 GHz, 6 MB cache), and i7-8559U (4C/8T up to 4.50 GHz, 8 MB cache) the Coffee Lake NUC will also rock Intel's Iris Plus Graphics 655 and 128 MB eDRAM. Clearly, Radeon graphics aren't a sustainable option for Intel.

Note that the i3 and i5 iterations will be also available as motherboards only (NUC8i3BEB and NUC8i5BEB), ready for third party fanless cases.
