Gaming Benchmarks

The gaming credentials of the Radeon RX Vega M GH has not been evaluated by any third-party before, as the NUC8i7HVK is the first PC to ship with that GPU. Keeping that in mind, it is important to get some context on how it fares when compared with other contemporary GPUs.

For the purpose of benchmarking, we chose four different games (Sleeping Dogs, Tomb Raider, Bioshock Infinite and DiRT Showdown) at three different quality levels. Note that the main aim here is not to show that the Radeon GPU can play the latest and greatest games. Rather, it is to compare the NUC8i7HVK against other gaming-focused mini-PCs that we have evaluated before..

    " as a self-avowed HTPC enthusiast the lackluster media support disappoints me - and it will keep Hades Canyon from being the ultimate HTPC as it should be - so this is the one area where Intel has dropped the ball. "

    Curiously in what way do you regard this product to be lackluster media support? And, as an alternative product with media support in mind which would you recommend?
