Initial impression: this NUC with the shocking marriage of an 8th gen Intel CPU and AMD Radeon Vega GPU works very well with everything I have tried. It seems dogs and cats can live together successfully. Intel's automated driver utility updated everything without a hitch, including BIOS, and there appears to be no incompatibilities with Windows 10 1809. As an aside, I was also pleased that transferring standalone Word 2016 to this new computer didn't require me jumping through a bunch of hoops like last time on the Surface Book. Perhaps they only do that every x number of new installations? I wonder why Intel is abandoning the concept after only one iteration? The NUC roadmap into 2020 has no direct successor. https://nucblog.net/2018/12/2019-2020-nuc-roadmap-leaked/ It looks like Intel will instead increase the NUC size to allow a PCIe X16 slot for a discrete graphics card of the user's own choosing. I wonder, at what size point is the NUC no longer the compact and power-frugal NUC we've come to know and love?
