    Phoronix: Running The Intel NUC6i7KYK On Linux With Skylake Iris Pro Graphics

    I've managed to get my hands on an Intel NUC6i7KYK "Skull Canyon" NUC featuring the Core i7 6770HQ Skylake CPU with Iris Pro Graphics 580. When paired with 32GB of RAM and a Samsung 950 PRO 500GB NVMe SSD, it makes for a very speedy, small form factor Linux-friendly PC.

        Too slow for gaming, too powerful and expensive for HTPC... what is the real use scenario for this?

          Depends on the game.

            There is so many things you can do with a computer aside playing games and watching videos you know.

              The 45W TDP is really too low on this CPU, it gets destroyed by the Broadwell CPU which is a 65W chip

                It should be nice show case - fastest Intel's iGPU to date ... But on paper of course, considering drivers might tell different story

                I smell review title like this - "Perf Per Watt iGPU King : Faster Than Any AMD's iGPU, Slower Than 5 Year Old Mid-Range Bonaire dGPU"

                  You say it only does HDMI at 24Hz but I thought the NUC6i7KYK had HDMI 2.0. Does it support 4k @ 60Hz? Do Intel drivers support 60Hz HDMI 2.0 at all?

                    The HDMI on the Skull Canyon is borked and is very buggy. There is a firmware update that requires you to connect it to a current HDMI 2.0 set and install it, to get it working better. There are also issues with certain RAM packages that make the unit unstable.
