and AMD Radeon 500 GPU
Intel reportedly released a NUC mini-PC with the code name Crimson Canyon, which will be equipped with a 10nm processor in the Cannon Lake-U line. In addition, Intel would solder a GPU from the RX500 series of AMD on the motherboard of a NUC.

The NUC systems are now listed by some webshops and suppliers under the type names NUC8I3CYSM2 and NUC8I3CYSM3, stating that they have a Core i3-8121U processor, 8GB ram, an HDD of 1TB and Windows 10. The prices range from about 450 to 600 euros.

A GPU is not listed on the pages, but WinFuture reports that the NUC has 2GB gddr5 and that Windows recognizes the video card as a Radeon 500 model. Only the RX550, RX550X and RX560 provides AMD with 2GB gddr5. A separate video card does not fit in a small NUC system, so probably Intel has soldered the GPU on the motherboard.

The German site seems to be based on a page on the Indonesian market place Bukalapak , without mentioning it as a source. There, a test model of the NUC is offered, with the specification that the system has 2 GB gddr5 and a Radeon GPU.

What speaks in favor of the rumor is that the processor in question, the Core i3-8121U, was previously referred to as a dualcore without integrated gpu . It would also be a Cannon Lake chip produced at 10nm . Intel has not previously released NUCs with dedicated gpu, but rather introduced the Hades Canyon-NUC with Kaby Lake-G processor, which has an AMD RX Vega-gpu placed on the package.
