A new hope : Tiger Canyon

Intel's business-oriented NUC 11 Pro will be released in the US and Europe, and we can confirm that at least three fanless chassis will be available in the coming months.

Tiger Canyon is very similar to Panther Canyon but loses mainstream features like the SDXC slot, the headphone jack, or the quad-mic array with Amazon Alexa support. The NUC 11 Pro will also probably be slightly more expensive than the NUC 11 Performance, and less broadly distributed.

On the bright side, the tiny motherboard will be available as a stand-alone product, pretty handy when a third-party case is involved. Cheer up, a fanless NUC featuring Intel's long-awaited Xe Graphics is still coming soon.
