ASUS Announces NUC 14 Pro+

/ 5 days ago

ASUS has just announced that they will be releasing the ASUS NUC 14 Pro+. If you didn’t know, NUC is an ultra-compact PC form factor. With this, ASUS aims to give people the best performance in a small package, thanks to the power of the new Intel Core Ultra processors.

The ASUS NUC 14 Pro+ is also fitted with certified Bluetooth dongle-free connectivity, energy-efficient Wi-Fi Sensing, and three AI engines (GPU, NPU, and CPU) that enable high throughput, low power consumption, and fast response. Ya know because AI is everything in 2024!

Style meets AI-driven performance

Available with Intel Core Ultra 9, 7, or 5 CPUs, the Intel Arc GPU for enhanced graphics, and Intel AI Boost (NPU), the ASUS NUC 14 Pro+ meets most computing needs and combines style with powerful performance. Together, its three AI engines – GPU, NPU, and CPU – enable higher throughput, lower power consumption, and faster response to locally run generative AI workloads. The Intel Core Ultra processors represent Intel’s most power-efficient client processors to date. Compared to its predecessor, the NUC 13 Pro Mini PC, the ASUS NUC 14 Pro+ offers significantly enhanced AI processing performance, offering unmatched stability and up to 35% faster local computing, especially noticeable in tasks such as text-to-image generation using stable-diffusion software.

Ready for any task

Following customer feedback, ASUS has given the ASUS NUC 14 Pro+ a premium 5 x 4-inch anodized aluminium chassis that is slightly larger than its predecessor. The stylish and compact, less-than-one-liter from factor takes up minimal space on a desk or workstation, making it ideal for small- or medium-sized enterprises, remote workers, as well as retail or educational settings. The bundled VESA mounting plate and toolless-access chassis for easy upgrades give ASUS NUC 14 Pro+ the versatility to suit various scenarios. Plus, each unit includes a three-year limited warranty, demonstrating the ASUS commitment to reliability.

Quad 4K display support

The ASUS NUC 14 Pro+ can support up to four 4K monitors through a combination of two HDMI ports, DisplayPort 1.4, two Thunderbolt 4 ports, and the additional configurable port (if the HDMI option is selected). This makes NUC 14 Pro+ perfect for multi-display setups in home studios or offices, or for extending workspaces in AI-driven environments.

Certified Bluetooth experiences

ASUS NUC 14 Pro+ ensures a guaranteed connection with certified Bluetooth peripherals including headset and speakerphones, hearing aids, mice, and keyboards. This enables great out of the box experiences with a certified Bluetooth keyboard and mouse, allowing users to have a wireless and clutter-free workspace right from the start. Certified Bluetooth also ensures superior sound quality without the need for a dongle, and can simultaneously broadcast to up to four Bluetooth devices.

Energy-efficient WiFi Sensing

When both user and computer activity remain inactive for 30 seconds, no movement is detected within a 1.5-2 meter range, the NUC 14 Pro+ intelligently recognizes that the user has stepped away for a brief period. It will then automatically enter screen hibernation mode to save energy.

Innovative cooling design

The new triple 6 mm heat pipe includes a double-sided exchanger and optimized airflow guidance. Its innovative design ensures stable performance and prevents overheating during high-computing AI workloads, guaranteeing uninterrupted operation.
