The GEEKOM MiniPC might just be your next NUC

SHENZHEN, China, July 17, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Intel’s Next Unit of Computing (NUC) brand of portable computers have always been the golden standard for mini PCs. But during the time when the mini PC industry is booming, Intel made a surprising decision to step away from the business, leaving its partners to push the vision of compact computing further.

Consumers only have a few weeks left to buy their NUCs as Intel plans to remove these mini PCs entirely from their distribution network on September 1st, 2023. The current best-seller is the Intel NUC 11 Pro Tiger Lake Canyon, as it’s considered as a better bang-for-the-buck solution than the latest NUC 13 Pro Arena Canyon. But do consumers need to hurry up to get a NUC until it’s sold out? No, because they can still get a GEEKOM Mini IT11, which is arguably the closest thing to an Intel NUC 11 Pro. The two models are identical in shape and size, but the Mini IT11 comes with a more powerful Intel Core i7-11390H processor. With a turbo clock of 5.0GHz, the I7-11390H offers much better performance than the Core-P processors in the NUC 11 Pro series.

The Mini IT11 (Available on Amazon) will see consumers through all kinds of computing duties, including productivity tasks, 8K video playback and moderate gaming. Consumers can also choose to connect the Mini IT11 to an external discrete GPU if consumers want to play graphics-intensive AAA titles in high quality settings.

The Mini IT11 is also identical to the NUC 11 Pro in port selection. Consumers will get two full-function USB4, three USB 3.2 Gen2, an HDMI 2.0, a DisplayPort 1.4, a 3.5mm audio jack and an SD card slot. The mini PC supports quad-display output, perfect for users who multitask a lot. There are also two SO-DIMM DDR4 RAM slots, an M.2 PCIe3.0*4 SSD slot and room for an additional 2.5-inch HDD/SSD under the hood. If consumers are thinking about getting an even more powerful unit, the GEEKOM Mini IT12, which rocks 12th-gen Alder Lake processors, will arrive in September.

GEEKOM was founded in Taiwan in 2003 and has been making quality computer products for almost 2 decades. The company has a professional team of experts and offers 24/7 online support for customers. If consumers are thinking about getting their next mini PC, GEEKOM is the brand they shouldn’t overlook.
