Tested Peripherals for Intel® NUC

Last Reviewed: 21-Aug-2017

The Intel® NUC Boards and Kits were tested with selected hardware peripherals. The focus of the testing was to make sure that no obvious issues existed between the desktop board and hardware peripherals.

  • The tests do not qualify the hardware peripherals against the Intel® NUC products.
  • Not every available peripheral has been tested.
  • Inclusion on the hardware peripherals list should not be considered an endorsement by Intel.
  • Intel makes no claims about peripherals that are not on the list.

Testing Method

A sample of publicly available hardware peripherals were used to see if the boards and kits achieved a high level of compatibility. The systems successfully completed a number of system tests. The test descriptions and configuration vary throughout the testing, so they are not listed.

The test results provide a sample of system functionality. Peripheral manufacturers can make changes that can affect operation of their products with Intel® products. Intel does not retest the systems when any part of the test hardware or its configuration changes (for example, drivers or BIOS/firmware revisions).

Successful test results do not guarantee compatibility with other hardware. System integrators should continually verify compatibility of specific peripherals.
