Intel to Stop Making NUC, Completing Exit from PC System Market

Users will still have their choice of Intel-powered mini-PC systems from other manufacturers, with myriad options available from brands both familiar and otherwise, but we won’t have to argue over the pronunciation of Intel’s Next Unit of Computing acronym anymore. Nuck? Nook? Knock? It never really mattered, but NUC is just a part of computer history now.

HardwareLUXX (German language) has verified this news, and provided this statement from Intel:

“We have decided to stop direct investment in the Next Unit of Compute (NUC) Business and pivot our strategy to enable our ecosystem partners to continue NUC innovation and growth. This decision will not impact the remainder of Intel’s Client Computing Group (CCG) or Network and Edge Computing (NEX) businesses. Furthermore, we are working with our partners and customers to ensure a smooth transition and fulfillment of all our current commitments – including ongoing support for NUC products currently in market.”
