Intel stopped production of the NUC Hades Canyon mini-PC
Intel has announced the discontinuation of NUC Hades Canyon compact nettops. These mini-computers based on not the most common processors of the 8th generation Kaby Lake-G were introduced two years ago.

Hades Canyon systems replaced Skull Canyon, marking the moment when NUC mini-PCs were built on processors that Intel did not develop independently. Kaby Lake-G chips became the rare case when two eternal competitors — AMD and Intel — teamed up to launch a truly unique product on the market. Using the Intel Kaby Lake microarchitecture based on a 14-nm process, these chips were equipped with AMD Vega graphics. This GPU is located on a separate chip in close proximity to the CPU chip.

Intel stopped delivering Kaby Lake-G processors last October. AMD stopped releasing drivers for their built-in Radeon RX Vega M graphics in June this year. Therefore, it was only a matter of time before systems based on these chips were discontinued. According to the Product Change Notification document, Intel has stopped producing NUC8i7HNK and NUC8i7HVK kits for NUC systems. Both devices are based on Quad-core Kaby Lake-g series processors. The NUC8i7HNK uses Core i7-8705G, while the NUC8i7HVK uses the more Productive Core i7-8809G model.

Meanwhile, mini-PC data will not immediately disappear from store shelves. Intel leaves its customers the option to place an order for these systems until November 27. The last deliveries of these minicomputers will be made by the company on January 29, 2021.
