Hands-on with Intel's Skull Canyon NUC, the most powerful game-ready mini-PC | PCWorld

PCWorld to review Skull Canyon's review game "Just Cause 3(Just Causes 3) ". It is the best for seeing the power of a machine because it is a game that requires high-specic processing ability to reproduce the real world by physical calculation.

In actual play, the resolution was set to 1920 × 1080, and it seems that the frame rate was "Low" and the mid 30 fps range was the most appropriate environment. Although it is somewhat unsatisfactory content to call "high end" as a game machine, the evaluation is said to be generally good.

Although it was Skull Canyon that seems to have limits on the performance by itself, the external GPU module that can be added with Thunderbolt 3 terminal "Razer Core"There is room left to dramatically increase its ability by using it.
