Fanless NUC 11 announced

Simply NUC announces the Tiger Canyon Porcoolpine, a passively-cooled NUC 11 Pro available in September from $679. We reviewed the NUC 8 Pro version earlier this year and really enjoyed the overall design, build quality, and cooling performance. Previous Porcoolpine iterations featured 15W CPUs though, and we're curious to see how the heat sink case handles 28W processors.

"The NUC11TNF, built with 11th Gen Intel® Core™ processors (vPro available), Intel® Xe Graphics, and fanless “Porcoolpine” chassis, delivers the performance and innovation for small space and embedded solutions without the use of a blower or fan. Whether you’re creating a digital kiosk, deploying intelligent vending, or refreshing enterprise PCs, the NUC11TNF can get the job done easily. With the option of Intel® Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1 and the option to run Windows® 10, Linux, or another OS, the NUC11TNF delivers the flexibility to build the exact solution your situation needs.

The NUC11TNF has some new features including, for the first time on a commercial NUC, a Thunderbolt™ 4 port. Combine that with two full-sized HDMI 2.0b ports to power up to quad brilliant 4K displays at 60 Hz. Suddenly your digital kiosks and intelligent vending machines have images that really pop and draw people in. This unit also features display emulation which enables various options including headless operation, a second virtual display, and persistent displays. Equipped with dual USB 2.0 on the internal header, Porcoolpine allows for additional expansion IO if more USBs, Ethernet or Serial ports are needed. We can configure to your specific needs. And Porcoolpine is tested for 24/7 operation ensuring solutions that are built to last.

With Intel® vPro™ technology you can get ahead of security threats. The built-in hardware-enhanced security means you can keep data and credentials secure, and remote manageability is perfect for installations such as unattended digital kiosks and intelligent vending. This hardware offers Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0 which addresses the growing concern over boot process integrity and offers better data protection. In addition you can physically lock down your NUC11TNFv7/i7 via the built-in Kensington lock or an optional locking VESA mount kit available from Simply NUC."
