Intel 在距今一年前,宣布推出結合 Intel CPU 搭配 AMD GPU 的 Kaby Lake G 處理器,希冀帶來更高效率的高性能處理器搭配高性能 GPU 組合,並可讓散熱機構更為簡化,而在今年,雖在筆記型電腦平台還是罕見,不過 Intel 自家的迷你準系統 NUC 也推出搭載 Kaby Lake G 的版本,這次要介紹的 NUC8i7HVK 就屬於其中的最高規格版本。

NUC8i7HVK 採用類似 NUC6i7KYK Skull cayon 的造型設計,較偏向長方形,有點像是書本的大小,而非一般 NUC 的方正外型,然而雖與 Skull cayon 相似,不過 NUC8i7HVK 的內裡可沒這麼簡單,畢竟 Skul cayon 仍是一顆標準的 Intel H 系列處理器,但 NUC8i7HVK 所採用的是具備 i7 處理器與 AMD RX VEGA M GPU 的 i7-8809G 。

雖然是迷你系統,不過 i7-8809G 可不是甚麼省油的燈,由於整合高效能的 CPU 與 GPU ,其耗電量達到 100W ,故原廠搭配了一顆幾乎與主機一樣大的變壓器,嚴格來說可以把這套準系統視為沒有螢幕、鍵盤、觸控板與內建電池的高效能電競筆電看待,而 Intel 也強調藉由高度整合的 i7-8809G ,可比採用獨立方案的平台更省電一些。

i7-8809G 的真身,可說是基於 i7-7920HQ 的變種產品,從官方的資訊,兩者皆為 4C8T ,基礎時脈為 3.1GHz ,可 Boost 到 4.2GHz ,同時具備 8MB 快取記憶體,搭配的原生 GPU 為 Intel HD Graphics 630 ,但最關鍵的是透過封裝技術,再將來自 AMD 、具備 4GB HBM 記憶體的 Radeon RX VEGA M GH GPU 與其嵌合在同一顆晶片座上,並具備 100W TDP 。

嚴格來說, i7-8809G 可視為一顆 7-7920HQ 再搭配一張 Radeon RX VEGA M GH 的解決方案,也保有獨顯與內建顯示的切換功能,但以實質意義而言,由於將兩顆 DIE 配置在同一顆晶片基座上,使雙方的通道更短、更直接,同時亦可將散熱片的位置集中靠單一散熱點處理,不用像傳統 CPU 與 GPU 獨立設計至少需要兩處散熱接觸點。

由於是屬於準系統套件, NUC8i7HVK 套件需要自行搭配記憶體與儲存,由於空間上的考量, NUC8i7HVK 搭配的是筆記型電腦用的 SO-DIMM 封裝 DDR4 RAM ,儲存則是透過 M.2 形式,而此次搭配的是宇瞻的電競級 NOX 暗黑女神 8GB x 2 DDR4 RAM ,以及 WD 的 1TB Black NVMe SSD 。

WD 的 Black NVMe SSD 先前已經介紹過,可具備 3,400MBps 的讀取與 2,800MBps 的寫入性能,至於 NOX 暗黑女神記憶體強調與 Intel 平台可完美相容,記憶體顆粒為特挑,並可支援 Intel XMP 2.0 ,此次使用的是兩條 8GB 的 DDR4 3000MHz , CL 為 18-20-20-38 ,考慮到長時間運作的穩定性,僅單純開啟 XMP2.0 使用。

為了將 RAM 與 SSD 放入機身,首先還是照官方說明把上蓋的四根六角螺絲轉下,就可看到下方的導光片與金屬上蓋,要將導光片下 LED 的排線(黑色)移除後才能把整個金屬上蓋取下,進行內部組件的安裝。

把金屬上蓋取下後,可看到基本格局,包括兩條可用的 M.2 插槽,兩條 SO-DIMM 記憶體插槽,並可看到散熱器背面的強化底板,另外右側雖可看到整合電源的 SATA 插槽,不過 NUC8i7HVK 內部並未有可裝配 2.5 吋硬碟的空間,除非將上蓋進行破壞性改裝(就是在塑膠殼挖一個孔)並把硬碟連接在外面,否則以原本的設計是無用武之地的。

既然都開了上蓋,筆者索性就設法持續拆下去,但要注意的是 NUC8i7HVK 的結構其實不太好拆, PCB 的固定除了螺絲以外,在幾個 I/O 處也透過金屬機構固定,需要用手指或是工具將這些機構撐開,奉勸除了吃飽太閒不然還是不要繼續拆下去...,另外也由於機構較為複雜,筆者實在不太敢把散熱器拆開,故就未拍攝 i7-8809G 本體。

可看到作為主動散熱風扇的是兩個台達的風扇模組,風扇本身並未固定在散熱器上,而是安裝在底板上,而 i7-8809G 的散熱模組則是一個 T 字型的設計,透過均溫導熱版把熱度傳送到後端的金屬鰭片,鰭片本身也有些許厚度,另可看到南橋晶片並未覆蓋散熱片,不過這對近年南橋晶片的發熱量不高的情況是相當正常的。

NUC8i7HVK 的 I/O 以一台微型系統可說相當豐富,甚至豐富過頭了,後方具備兩個 ThunderBolt 3 ,四個 USB 3.1 5Gbps,兩個乙太網路,一個 HDMI 2.0a 與兩個 miniDisplayPort 1.2,前方則包括紅外線遙控器(需在 UEFI 開啟功能), SDXC 槽,一個 USB 3.1 5Gbps ,一個 USB 3.1 10Gbps ,一個 HDMI 2.0a 與一個基於 Type-C 的 USB 3.1 ,另外前後的 3.5mm 端子可構成前後環繞聲道輸出以及具備光纖輸出。

要留意的是, NUC8i7HVK 的初版 UEFI 可正確的辨識如 Samsung 或是 Intel 的 NVMe SSD ,但像是筆者這次搭配的 WD Black NVMe SSD 則因不明原因在預載的 UEFI 無法被視為開機磁區,不過在 UEFI 層卻能被辨識,而這問題須只要 UEFI 升級到最新的版本就可解決。

性能表現方面有些超出筆者的預期,若以 FullHD 的解析度輸出,在多數的遊戲開啟中等到高效能都已經有相當優秀的表現,這也拜 i7-8809G 的 CPU 本身的時脈就不低,畢竟在一般遊戲的資源分配, CPU 時脈也很容易影響到遊戲性能,而 Radeon VEGA M GH 的圖形效能也能夠達到遊戲級所需的性能。

像是筆者透過 GTA V ,並將畫質等特效開啟到約中等,在 GTA V 的測試項目都能夠達到 60fps 以上的穩定性,這樣的表現已經是可媲美中階桌上型電腦,雖然說自組電腦有著更低的成本,不過體積方面就無法像 NUC8i7HVK 般的小巧。不過值得注意的是畢竟散熱設計屬於筆記型電腦的變形,在持續高負載的情況還是會將核心溫度逼到近百度。

以當前市場最接近 NUC8i7HVK 的競品,應該屬華擎搭配 NVIDIA MXM GPU 的 DeskMini 系列,不過兩者還是有所不同, DeskMini 是搭配標準的桌上型電腦處理器,同時需要自己選擇散熱器,功耗也高出許多,但換來更好的性能與內部可安裝更多儲存裝置(與可搭配 2.5 吋硬碟)的可能性,應該視為更進階的版本。

就事論事, NUC8i7HVK 以性能以及價格衡量的投資報酬率絕對無法稱得上划算,但它的優點就是在有限的體積具備一定程度的效能表現,除了娛樂外亦可負擔一定等級的影像編修、 3D 繪圖(基本上就是一台中高等級電競筆電的水準);至於儲存的問題,則可考慮透過 Thunderbolt 3 或是 USB 介面搭配外接硬碟解決無法內接 2.5 吋硬碟的情況。

不過以當前 AMD 與 Intel 的情況,似乎很難預料像是 i7-8809G 這樣的跨品牌合作產物是否會有下一代,畢竟這項產品發表不久, Intel 就挖角了原 AMD RTG 部門的 Raja Koduri ,並由其負責 Intel 旗下 GPU 的發展,恐對雙方的合作關係造成一定程度的衝擊,加上 AMD 推出 Zen 架構後雙方在 CPU 的戰火也越演越烈,不無可能成為空前絕後的合作案。
