The high performance fanless PC specialists have listed their NUC PCs with Akasa’s latest passive case. As spotted by the list by AtLast! fanless technology, solutions include systems built into Akasa Turing AC Pro and Maxwell AC Pro. Both cases house the internals of his NUC 13 Pro (with Intel i7-1360P and Iris Xe graphics) and are said to perform well under load.
Intel launched the NUC 13 Pro machine just a few weeks ago. The Raptor Lake-P powered machine was picked up for criticism in the following reviews. register Because it has annoyingly loud fans that “come to life… keep ringing constantly.” Akasa’s intervention is welcome, as noise pollution can have a significant impact on productivity.
