HΛD☰S B☰ΛST - Intel Hades Canyon NUC with EXP GDC Beast eGPU  

Active Member
So, the new Hades Canyon NUC is on the way.  
Should be available in March.  The big news is that it has a 24 CU Vega GPU integrated into the package.   So, we're looking at GTX 1060 levels of performance combined with nearly a desktop class CPU.  Basically it should handle most current games in high detail at nearly 60FPS in a 100W total package.

So, my question is... does anyone know if the Hades Canyon NUC can be modified to work with EXP GDC Beast to create a Hades Beast?

Here is a teardown video of the Hades Canyon NUC.

And here is Stu Lowes similar NUC + Beast build.

So any thoughts on pairing the Hades Canyon with an EXP GDC Beast?  Possible?  Practical?  Or is combing Intel, AMD, and nVidia just too Pagan?

If this IS something that looks like a go, I might just give it a shot.

I'm excited for the Hades Canyon to come out. I've been using the Skull Canyon with a Sonnet box and a 1060 for a while now an love it. I'll be curious if I can disable the AMD graphics down the road. If the Vega truly is comparable to the 1060 then I''ll rock the Hades as is and move my Sonnet box to the mac lappy.

Agreed.  Hades Canyon looks like the complete package.
