Whenever we talk about the GeForce RTX 4090, whatever the model, the size (and consumption) of the card is always a recurring theme. Even a giant and small PC Intel NUC 13 Extreme “Raptor Canyon” it can support the most powerful (and largest) graphics card on the market today.
Chinese website “163” got hold of an Intel mini PC, which is the strongest in the company’s entire NUC lineup, and soon put an RTX 4090 inside it. It was not possible to perform some tests, such as measuring the temperature in such a small space, since the power supply of the mini PC is 750Wbelow the 850 W recommendation. But from the photos it seems that the small PC offers space for larger sources.

As for the hardware temperature, the Core i9-13900K reached a maximum of 85°C in synthetic benchmarks like Cinebench R23, testing the CPU at 2,193 (single-core) and 35,478 (multi-core) points. The RTX 3080 Ti maxed out at 67 °C with Furmark, which isn’t bad for a mini PC.
The mini PC’s hardware, such as the CPU, SSD, and RAM, resides on a separate board called the NUC 13 Compute Element. It is equipped with two fans. One cools heat pipes that are attached to a heat sink, and the other is a blower model that blows air out.
