Hello RAP,

Thank you for posting on the Intel communities. 

In this case, you may want to take a look at our Panther Canyon and Beast Canyon families to try to find one NUC that fulfills your requirements it is important for you to know that the maximum amount of LAN ports available on our NUCs is 2. , you can check their specs in the following links:

You may also find useful our articles "Product Code Naming Convention for Intel® NUC" where you can find the meaning of the different names of our NUCs, you can check it on the following link:

Up to Gen 10:

Gen 11+:

In case you need information on stock availability and pricing, you need to contact one of our authorized distributors to get assistance with the purchasing process, you may find our article "How Do I Contact an Intel® Authorized Distributor, Supplier, or Reseller?" useful for this matter:

Sadly, no NUCs can meet the requirements; there is simply no support for 'End of Life > 10 Yrs'.



Hi Josue & Scott,


Thanks for the reply.


I have the below queries after checking the specification.

1. What is the other difference between Intel Mini PC vs performance kit except internal storage & memory?

2. I have checked the spec. of NUC11PAQi70QA & Max. RAM support up to 16GB. Can you please share which model having RAM at least 20GB RAM or higher?

3. How can I connect M.2 slot with PCIe X4 lanes expansion I/O connector with RTX 3070 graphics card?

4. I have checked the spec. of NUC11PAQi70QA & Max. LAN port 1nos. Can you please share which model has more no. of LAN?

5. What is the max. EOL year for intel NUC mini PC or kit?

6. I don't find any regulatory certification details CE, FCC, IC & IEC 60601 for Intel NUC. Please share with us.

7. If you have direct contact details of Intel® Authorized Distributor, Supplier, or Reseller. Please share with us.

I can provide preliminary answers for most of these questions:

  1. Kit products require the addition of memory, storage and O/S while PC products include these items. There are also third parties (like SimplyNUC) that take kits and create custom PC configurations for sale.
  2. Not sure what you are reading (perhaps info from a PC product?). TPS says baseboard supports 2x32GB (total 64GB) SODIMM configurations.
  3. This isn't a support capability. It might work but likely not. 2280+ M.2 slots are dedicated to storage (and, in some configurations, 2240 M.2 slot for WLAN card). External graphics solutions are typically connected via Thunderbolt.
  4. Some NUC Compute Elements have dual LAN solutions, but, in general, secondary LAN ports are added via Thunderbolt or USB. Some NUC Pro series boards/kits/PCs can be expanded to have two LAN ports using kits from GORITE.
  5. Three-year limited warranty. Three-year product lifecycle.
  6. This is available upon request through Intel Customer Support. In general, if you go to the Intel site and search for 'nuc regulatory', you will get a list of links for regulatory documents by NUC model and model family.
  7. See these resources: Intel NUC Ecosystem Partner Solutions and Intel Authorized Distributors and Approved Suppliers.

Hope this helps,
