Where is the NUC12DCMi9.
I've been looking for one for a couple of months now.
Here Intel is about to announce their next generation of CPU's, and yet are behind on their existing ones.
Dragon Canyon is shipping. To the extent possible (what with the shortages and all), units should be available in the channels. Because sales are handled through the channel distributors, however, ICS cannot tell you anything about where units are available.
For information about product availability, you need to contact your local Intel Authorized Distributors and Approved Suppliers. As soon as information is available, they will be able to further assist you with your request.
Sorry, reality bites,
Thanks for responding.
It's just like their NUC11PHi7C, which I'm presently on right now, w/its early announcement, but taking a few months before it ever becoming available.
At the moment, only the NUC12DCMi7 model is available, but not the i9.
Outside of the CPU, are there any differences between the two models?
Could the i7 (Intel Core i7-12700) model be upgraded to the i9 (Intel Core i9-12900)? They have the same Socket LGA 1700.
I'm waiting to purchase a new computer, and almost bought an Alienware Aurora R13 today.
It needs to be remembered that, during shortages, Intel allocates parts based upon sales volumes. This means that the lions share of everything is going to the MNCs with their huge sales volumes (Dell, HP, Lenovo, Asus, MSI, etc.). Despite being a part of Intel, US and international law dictates that the NUC team, because its products are in direct competition with the MNCs and smaller organizations, only has the priority that their (unfortunately miniscule in comparison) sales volumes dictate. Still, based upon the posts from folks who do have units (and are fighting through BIOS issues), there *are* units out there. The shortages are playing havoc with everything and they are talking about these shortages lasting well into 2023.
The only difference between the i7 and i9 elements is the processor and cooling solution (which is graduated to the wattage of the processor). See section 2.1 of the Intel NUC 12 Extreme / Pro X Kit / Compute Element TPS document for more information.
